5 Months and Counting!




























No this is not a post about an impending birth. I am here to report that I have officially gotten over my "5 month decorators block". This room was a birthday gift to my 10 year old and I am only now starting to see some progress. The black and pink were cute but I thought it needed another color for accent and after talking to a friend I decided turquoise would be a good choice. I worked this weekend on her vanity and I hope it will be moved into her room soon. It is actually only the top to a vanity. I am spray painting it black, decoupaging scrapbook paper to the drawer fronts and glazing it. I found these cute acrylic crystals at Hobby Lobby and decoupaged paper behind them and glued them to the knobs, you can't beat $3.00 for custom drawer pulls. It is so hard to find chandelier anything in my area. Then I will hang it by 2 decorative black iron brackets. I still need to find a dresser, recover the vanity chair, and hang some pictures on the wall. Oh and lets not forget new curtains, and pillows for the window seat. I think I am starting to freak myself out. Ok I can do this...baby steps Paula baby steps.

Super cute. I know what you mean about the decorator's block. I'm still dealing with it. But you're awesome, and I'm sure once the inspiration hits you will be off and running with it. Can't wait to see it all put together.
