I still remember when I painted this room Tea Rose yellow by Martha Stewart. It was a gray day outside and the paint was seriously glowing with a life force of it's own! I thought I was going to cry, hmmm yes I think I did cry being all hormonal and all. I wanted a soft yellow for a baby's room, not some neon from the 80's. Frank calmed me down and said to wait till tomorrow, and sure enough, it wasn't that bad and indeed I liked it.
We added true wainscotting, which was a score from a friend who worked in a woodyard!
When we walked through the model home, we knew instantly that this would be our baby girl's room. We both thought that the window space was screaming for a built in bench. Turns out that was our first project when we moved in.
The hutch was from Ikea and I just adored it because it actually came with the rose petal knobs!
The hatbox and hats were from Ava's third birthday party. The theme was a tea party, so I made all our guests their tea hats. I put our hats above her armoire for a keepsake.
I feel a happy, cheerful feeling every time I walk into this room, well when it's clean that is!
Oh yeah, did I mention she wants her room RED now!!!!!!!!
