Tenley’s Room! Finally!!

This project has been a long time coming – But I am happy to say that I am finally finished!
(unless I find a chandelier –which I am in the market for!)

Tenley’s room is currently my favorite room in the house! It turned out so cute and I just love it!
When you first walk in – this is the view you see…

Tenleys room 4

I love the glider – it has been so nice to sit and rock my baby to sleep and to read stories as we rock.
It was, by far, one of my best finds. You can read about it here.

I felt like I needed something to fill the space next to the dresser so I bought some baskets (from Target) that match the crib. I think it pulls that area together nicely and I love having the blankets so readily accessible.

The quilt came with the bedding that I simply purchased from Babies R Us and the darling petal pillow was given as a gift from my sister.

It is true – we don’t have closet doors. At first we thought it was a good idea – but now I am wishing we could hide all that crap behind some cute doors – one day!

I made the Tenley for her room with my Silhouette and some vinyl I purchased from Hobby Lobby.

Tenley's Room 1

I bought the book holder at IKEA and spray painted it green to match the other room décor.

This view is from the corner by the book holder.

I bought some frames and painted them antique white to match the dresser and the glider. Then I sprayed some knobs green and used blue ribbon to string them up. I then used my Silhouette to cut out the ever popular saying. Then simply inserted some pictures of my favorite girl!!

Tenleys room 6

I took the shelf down out of our family room, painted it antique white and hung it above the dresser I refinished. You can find the details of the dresser here.

For the décor on the shelf, I spray painted some extra frames I had to match the colors of her room.  I found the chunky T at Hobby Lobby and sprayed it blue. I made an “I am a Child of God”  subway art from an idea found here and I made the Big I am a Child God subway art based on an idea I saw in a babies room – I made both in Photoshop.

On her dresser are the lamp I made here, the green mirror I painted here and a fun bright yellow “smile” that I bought from Hobby Lobby and painted yellow. I love that it is so bright and cheery!

Tenley's room 2

On the other side is the Accessory Organizer I made, a bowl to hold all her clippies and a fun flower vase that I bought at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. It fits her room perfectly.

From the glider, you can see out into the hall. You can also see the bow holder I made her here.

All Four Corners – Just One More Time!!

The colors of spray paint that I used are: Valspar Cameo Pink, Valspar Baby Blue, Valspar Everglade Green, Rustoleum Strawflower, Rustoleum Antique White and Rustoleum Espresso.

Her walls are a very light pink – we are talking like a gallon of white with a drop of red – only I cannot remember the brand or name and cannot find the can. Sorry guys!

So now you know where “The Princess Sleeps!” I hope you like it!

P.S. Make sure you come back later today! I have a HUGE announcement about a fun Event hitting my blog tomorrow!!

Wow it looks so great! I'm about to decorate my daughter's room (we just moved in a few months ago) and it's fun to see what other people are doing!

The room looks so adorable! We have the same issue with the closets...no doors on any of them. I couldn't stand it, but we rent so I wasn't about to go out and buy/install new doors. So to solve the problem, I actually purchased a curtain and tension rod (like one you could use in the bathroom for a shower curtain) and hung the curtain in the closet doorway. Ta-da! Hidden closet contents! Just an idea for you to consider. :o)

Her room is so cute! I love all the sweet special touches you added. One of those pink chadeliers from last night would look perfect. It was great to see you again.

Love your little ones room! In one of the photos there were paper lanterns (round ones) hanging - was wondering what you used to hang them with and if you used a light kit in any of them. Thanks!
