madeline's room

It's been a long time coming, but Madeline's room is finally finished.  Or it was finished eight months ago and I'm just getting around to taking pictures of it….
Either way, here it is.


This wall is the part of the room that's kept me from feeling like it's complete.  There are a couple pictures and frames that need to be changed, but I've finally embraced that I'm not going to get around to doing it any time soon.  My plan is to continue to let it bother me every time I walk in there and do nothing about it.  Lame, but true.
The vintage dresser is painted BM's Santa Barbara Green and the wall color is BM's Paper White - it's the perfect, barely there cool gray.
Try it, I guarantee you'll love it.
The antique spindle bed and the vintage nightstand are both painted BM's White Dove and the lamp is from Ikea.

  4. What a gorgeous and bright room! I think it's perfect, but you definitely made me laugh when you said you're just going to let the gallery wall continue to bother you but do nothing. I feel that way a lot around my home right now!!

  14. What a fabulously lovely room for a growing and beautiful young lady. Cute and "growny" at the same time. Hard to do, but you pulled it off. This room is a definite keeper.

  17. I'm a perfectionist like you, so I totally understand the desire to wait until something is perfect before you reveal it. But there's always that one part of a project that just doesn't come together as we want or not as soon as we'd like. Ugh.

    Anyway, I'm glad you shared the room as a whole. It's cute and girly, but fit for a young lady as she grows. Madeline is very lucky to have such a beautiful space!

  25. I used that Pillow fabric (the colorful one) to make a roman shade, it's been done since December but I don't know how to install it...hopefully I can make an attempt at hanging it!
