Victoria's Room...Then & Now

 Hi there friends...
I can't believe it took me so long to post this makeover...We worked on this way back in July!!
~~~
Victoria asked if we could make some changes in her room over the summer...how could I say no...I LOVE change!
~~~
Let's have a look... 
 
The canvas with her name on it I picked up at the Country Living Fair back in June.
~~~
 We kept the wall color (it's her favorite color) that made my job much easier!
Here's a BEFORE with her trundle bed...
 Now the AFTER with the pretty cane headboard I found at the indoor flea market...
She wanted a more "grown up" room. 
She's 8 going on 16!! She tries to keep up with her teenage sister and brother!
 Sorry this is the only before photo I could find of the headboard before I painted it in AS Old White.
I ordered this cute pom pom pillow from Pottery Barn.

 Her NUMBER ONE request was pom poms...so pom poms she got! 
~~~
I bought the colorful paper ones in Hobby Lobby along with the cute polka dot ribbon to hang them and then her Big Sis put them together for us...for the life of me I can't figure out how to open those things up!
  One more BEFORE...
 And AFTER...
 She's so happy with her new room and all the 
"big girl" touches that were added!
I'm still working on one more piece for the other side of her room so stay tuned!

A simple FALL wreath


 Hi there friends...hope you all had a nice weekend!
The weather was absolutely beautiful here in NY today...mid 70's and sunny!
~~~
The perfect weather for Fall decorating.
I started by making a simple Fall wreath for our front door.
I picked up this oval grapevine wreath in Hobby Lobby last week along with a few pumpkin picks...I had plenty of burlap ribbon left over from last year.
I wanted to keep it simple and I like how this wreath ties in with the grapevine garland I have around the door.
Tomorrow I'll go out and buy some corn stalks for the columns and a few pumpkins to finish up the front stoop! 
Have a great week!

Opinions Needed!!!

 Hi there friends I need your help!
~~~
We gave Mackenzie's room a complete makeover over a year ago. 
Everything thing from the walls to the furniture got a coat of paint...except the bed!!
~~~
Leaving the headboard pine is making the room feel "OFF" to me! 
That's were I need your input.

 I'm getting ready to paint the bed but I'm not sure if I should go with black or white?!?
 Her armoire and nightstand are black and her dresser is white.

 What color would you paint the bed??
Inputs needed pleeeease!
