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 steps Paula baby steps.
