Butterfly Dreams

Remember forever a go I said I redecorated the girls room. Yeah we did it back in the summer, but some how I am now finally getting around to posting about it.  I actually love the room and I'm just a big slacker at showing it to all of you. So this room started out white, I mean White White! There is one wall that is covered with cubbies and so it make for great storage but other then that the walls were very boring white. My 4 year old daughter has had a really hard time changing from sleeping in her brothers room to sleeping in a room with her baby sister. (We were in hopes that it would help but she still insists on sleeping in brothers room.) 
We made it a beautiful butterfly room. These pictures are as we started painting the Lavander on the walls. 

I found a headboard and foot board for Bella's new twin bed at the DI for $8 Which was a sweet deal. I didn't get before pictures of it, darn it! I was a dark brown to start with. We primed it white and painted it an Almond color and then Glazed it. We also painted our old crib for Alivia the same Almond color.   
I made a zig zag pink and purple quilt for Bella's bed. Which I really love how it turned out. It was a ton of work. Half way through making it my sewing machine died and I end up finishing it on a sewing machine I inherited from my grandma. This thing is a beauty, it was made in like the 40's. It come built in to a desk and is soo heavy, but it still sews awesome. I should have posted a picture of it.  
Above her bed we bought a canope

Then I got out my favorite thing, my Silhouette Machine to cut out tons of Butterflies. I put them mostly in the corner of her room by the window giving the illusion that they were just coming up from the bed. I also cut out both of the girls names and put them on the wall by their beds. 

We bought this fun lamp from Ikea to hang in the corner and for them to have a night light. 
I really love how it turned out, really fun and girly, Too bad Bella still wants to sleep in her brothers room. oh Well maybe one day.
