Chloe fell in love with her Grandmother's Dollhouse when we visited for Thanksgiving, so we knew we needed to incorporate one into her new room. With no room to have a large one, we opted to build it into the fireplace. And she has been playing with it ever since the day it was constructed. Literally, it was just unpainted wood & she was already claiming bedrooms for her "Critters" as she calls them.
These were obviously styled by me and no longer look like this & ironically enough C asked when I was taking the overall pictures of her room why I didn't style her dollhouse! I told her she had done such a good job we just left it. (I may have tweaked a chair or two...)
The glittery pennant garland was created by cutting triangles from glittery scrap book paper on clearance at Michaels and gluing them to a thin strand of grosgrain. Cheap & Cheerful!
She is a musical kid... she asked for a Guitar last year for Christmas & the piano this year. Her pink guitar was a steal on Amazon last year! $12 with free shipping!!! Now it is around $35, but still a great price for an instrument she can play with & start to learn on.
Her new gold gumball machine was a 99 cent Goodwill find.
The glittery antlers are from my White Deerhead... he hasn't found a permanent home yet, so until then the antlers will reside in her room.
The Pink art was some melted crayon art I did with a crayon & a hair dryer.
This artwork is really about being resourceful!!! The "Well Hello" print was a postcard that came with my new Rivet & Sway glasses!!!! It was too cute to throw away & thought it was a sweet addition to her space. The striped ribbon print was a Kate Spade Desktop Wallpaper I printed years ago.
The basket & BlaBla dolls were more Goodwill finds. We normally stay away from the stuffed animal section at Goodwill, but Chloe spotted these & they were like new! We did give them a nice gentle wash as soon as we got home. The Basket ended up being a game from the Land of Nod that we are in the process of recreating some parts for.
The "Hold your Horses" gold foil print is from the crazy talented Stephanie Creekmur. The talent behind the "Hey Y'all" print I used earlier last year. The print is a Portrait layout, but worked in the Ribba frame as a landscape really well. She also has some of her southern sayings printed in different colors too now!
The bunny bust (which is also a vase. adore!) was from Anthropologie. And the teeny tiny Bunny is supposed to be a nightlight from the Land of Nod. However the battery barely makes it through one night. So it's just decor now.
The silver baskets I have in the space were a great find at an Antique market around town. They actually have mylar ribbons woven through the baskets. Love them.
The urchin was my DIY version I made a few months back. I put two little nails in the wall & just stuck it up there.
Her necklace was a party favor from one of my most talented friends little girl's birthday party. Everything that Joni from LayBabyLay touches is perfection in my book. It also helped to inspire the color palette in here!
My favorite art piece in the room is the bunny art.
It was a mask from H&M kids. It came in a pack of three for about $5. I taped it to a piece of cardstock & slipped it into an Ikea frame. I love framing unexpected items.
The final item in her room is her pink pouf, which came from Home Decorators Collection's new children's line. It is filled with bean bag filling & is small enough that Chloe can move it around. Something that happens regularly. Bean the bunny enjoys sitting on the poof too. As you can see here.
There is one more element in the room I have yet to clearly show, but that's because it is almost done!!!!! Hopefully we'll get to it soon & I can share the details.
Thanks again for all of the sweet comments this week. If there is anything I failed to mention, feel free to ask!
