I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

LITTLE GIRL'S ROOM REVEAL

LITTLE GIRL'S ROOM REVEAL

little-girls-room-reveal.jpg
When we moved in almost 6 years ago, we used this room as our bedroom, then I painted it grey and it was our guest room for just over three years. When Elly moved out of the nursery, I moved her in to this room. I liked the grey, but after painting the trim white in her room, the grey just looked a little drab. I decided to give the room a new paint color and add some new things to make this a little girl's room. I had a whole color scheme worked out with the grey so that I wouldn't have to repaint the walls... but as I got working on it, I just didn't like it. I kept thinking that this needs to look like a little girl's room-not a guest room. So I went all out and changed a lot. 
{I painted the walls, the trim, got new blinds, added a bookshelf, two gallery walls, a new light fixture and new cushions for the glider}
{My two little gallery walls}
{I switched out the IKEA knobs for some from Hobby Lobby}
{I got the birdcage, bird and ampersand (those two I spray painted gold) from Hobby Lobby. The mirror is thrifted and painted}
{My homemade hair bow holder}
{The sweater was made when my husband was born-luckily it was a bit girly so it's perfect for Elly's room :)}

 {Homemade shelves made from an old linen closet door. They are the perfect height so that Elly can grab books off to read-every morning the shelf is empty because she takes all the books in to her bed at night. Thankfully she hasn't ever grabbed the vase with dried flowers in it! I think she knows it's not to be touched :)}
