...emerson's room...

one of the things i was most excited about buying our own home was that i would finally have a chance to paint the walls and really do whatever i wanted, wherever i wanted! so we've been in this house for about 7 months and i just finished emerson's room a few weeks ago. i do have a few finishing touches here and there that still need to be done, like spray painting the basket on the floor, filling the picture frames, and something needs to be done around the little book shelf. but other than that, it's done & i'm really happy with how it turned out!


so, i really wanted to paint a tree on her wall...i was nervous about doing it, because if i screwed up, i'd have to repaint the green, and then try again, and it would just turn into a big pain. but it wasn't that bad, i just found a picture of a tree that i liked and used that as a reference point...it's definitely not perfect, but it works! and the pom-poms, i bought a martha stewart kit from michael's...very easy because the tissue paper is cut and ready to go. but if you're feeling extra crafty, there are simple instructions here.


i painted these little birds right above her door. i just found some little birds that i liked on the internet, saved the image to my desktop, resized them in photoshop, then printed them out, cut them out, and used them as stencils. so easy!


i got this idea from another blog like a year ago. so it's been so long, that i can't remember whose blog it was, but i liked her idea. i found some paper that was color coordinated with the room and used that for these little pictures on canvas. then i hot glued the buttons on...another really simple, cheap, and cute way to customize your wall decor...




okay so the swirly, twirly canvas picture thing...i bought some swirly chipboard embellishments, painted them black, covered them with glitter & then used mod podge to glue them to a canvas that i painted pink. then i cut off the ends of some sparkely brads and hot glued them on randomly. it's messy, but easy...and trust me, i'm all about easy.


the best part of all...i'm pretty sure emmy likes it...

Too stinkin' cute, Lyndsie! You are so creative. Since I can't redecorate and paint any of my rooms, I took your inspiration and redecorated my blog instead. :0)

But what I'd really like to know is: Where is all the clutter? Where are the dirty diapers and the shoes and the toys strewn from here to timbucktoo? Now THAT is truly impressive to me :0)

Holy moly girl! Is there anything you can't do? I doubt it. You are definately the next Martha Stewart! That room is so beyond cute and you need to post in on "rate my space" on HGTV website.
