Ribbon Memo Board

Mia's room is coming along slowly nicely!

Since her bedding is on back-order and her book shelf hasn't come in yet, i'm at a stand-still. So, I decided to focus on getting some goodies up on her wall.

She didn't want her old pin boards back up, so I decided on something else.

I saw this picture at Goodwill for $5.99 and fell in love with the frame...... the picture - NOT so much!

So, I (along with my assistant) removed the picture and it was already looking better:

A couple coats of spray paint later:

Then I used my staple gun to secure ribbon accross the back and clipped some cute pictures up with blue clothespins (currently at Michael's Dollar Bins!):

I love how it turned out!!

Mia's Room Progress

We have made great progress on Mia's room.

So far we have bought the bed and painted the room. The paint color is:

The bedding has been ordered from Pottery Barn.

Dahlia Medallion Quilted Bedding

I also ordered a bookshelf from the Shabby Chic line at TARGET:

Simply Shabby Chic® Classic Small Bookcase - Sour Cream.Opens in a new window

Once I get these items into the room and add a few more accessories, we'll be done!

Mia's Room

Mia has been asking for a big bed like her sister Olivia has. Olivia has a full size bed because her room doubles as the guest room when we have out of town company. We kept 2 twin beds in Mia's room (a day bed with a trundle) for the occassions when the girls slept in there together. But, it was time to upgrade Mia to a full bed too.

We decided on this bed from IKEA:

LEIRVIK Bed frame, white Length: 82 1/4 " Width: 63 " Footboard height: 38 5/8 " Headboard height: 57 1/2 " Mattress length: 79 1/2 " Mattress width: 59 7/8 "  Length: 209 cm Width: 160 cm Footboard height: 98 cm Headboard height: 146 cm Mattress length: 202 cm Mattress width: 152 cm

I thought i'd buy some new bedding and call it a day!

Um, no. When I asked her what color sheets she wanted for her new room, she had more than sheets on her mind! She wants all white bedding, light blue walls and a round mirror over her bed........ that is exactly what my room looks like:) She is such a mini-me!

We browsed some pottery barn kids catalogs and came up with our inspiration:

How long before Olivia asks for her make-over too?!?

Jewelry Hanger

I am in the beginning stages of redecorating Mia's room. Her vanity was over-run with jewelry and knick nacks. So I decided to make something to organize her necklaces. This is the simplest thing i've ever done and no instructions are even necessary!

Watch this:)



The ribbon will be changed once I decide on the color scheme of the room. But you get the idea!

It looks really cute and it was super easy!
