We wanted to keep the girls’ room simple, uncluttered, and sweetly old-fashioned. So we didn’t add too much–just livened it up with some splashes of color. There’s still space for more creativity, but we are very satisfied with it now!
It’s always gratifying to stretch a little into much, and make something creative and lovely out of what we already have on hand.
Use it up,
Wear it out,
Make it do, or
It’s equally as gratifying for me to pass this talent down to my girls.
Nearly everything in their room, including furniture, came to us through gifts or cast-offs from friends, Freecycle, thrift stores, or new, but at very discounted prices. Some of it needed work, some was immaculate. We have spent very little money on this room, and we are grateful for all God has provided for it!
All the photos were taken over the course of the past week or so.
<We had enormous fun with this project and have pictures galore! Anyone who finds this topic deadly dull, I warn you now! Death by dullness lies ahead!>
To the girls and me, it can never be dull. This room was one tiny way for us to act on the yearning and love in our hearts for our Katie-bird.
