I have been hit by some new inspiration! I go on Pinterest all the time for my inspiration and had pinned a few things for my daughters room. I had chosen a colour scheme but it just wasn't coming together. Then I saw this picture! I immediately fell in love. I changed the colour scheme and ran with it. I went into her room and was able to picture what it would look like finished. Which is very hard for me to do. I'm not good at this decorating thing.
I got my inspiration for her blanket off of pinterest of course. This picture is what I found. I loved it. But after a short lazy search for the actual pattern I came up empty handed. So I made up my own pattern based on the picture. It's not exactly the same. But that's good! I like it, it's mine because I made it.
I'm liking the colours and the blanket. I feel they will grow with her and will last her longer then something more babyish.
I'm also working on a string art piece with her name on it. I used an old pallet I had found. My husband had already dismantled it from making me something else from it. So I took the pieces I need from what was left. I sanded them, primed them, mixed the colour paint I wanted and painted it! I am at the part now where it's nailing in the 8 million nails to form her name. So it's slow going and not much to see.
I also plan on making a thick animal throw rug for her room. I have a few pinned but no decisions on which animal yet. With the colours I'm using I'm leaning more towards a butterfly. But we'll see! :)
