Hailey's Room!

We asked Hailey, "If you could decorate your room any way you wanted, what would you do?"

Her quick reply was a gardening theme with flowers, flowers and more flowers. And blue walls with clouds. Okay. We let a couple weeks go by as we planned and gathered supplies.

So knowing that Jenna needed furniture and quick tours of the furniture stores revealed nothing I was interested in, so I tried it -- Craigs List. Next, I sent my husband, in a Uhaul, off into the country to pick up a large quantity of vintage girly furniture. After the furniture was home, we decided it was much more appropriate for Hailey's room then Jenna. Hailey would love canopy bed and new desk!
The canopy. Yes, I made it. White fabric, glitter tulle, (Yes, I used glitter. Now that is love. You should see my sewing room!) green wool felt, and some flower garland, several hours and lots of pinning yields one garden bed!
The frog, ladybug and butterfly - place mats from JoAnn. Genius.
The HUGE flowers. They are paper! The large pink one is 22 inches across.
And that 9 patch quilt in the corner (over some cushions that make a perfect sitting area for Hailey to play) is finished. We will just go ahead and cross that off the To Do list.
The best part, surprising Hailey with this room. She came home from a vacation at Auntie Amy's house and we went to tour Jenna's room. She soon noticed her doll house.....her bed.....her.... She was confused as to why her stuff was in Jenna's room. Soon we let her in her room, and she was thrilled to say the least! Happy 6th Birthday Hailey!
