Girls' Room

I tried to have the girls' room completed before Nate's family came for Thanksgiving, but that didn't happen. I did, however, get the curtains made. I just bought cheap white ones and then added cute ribbons to the top and bottom to add a little color. With the busy lime green color of the room, I wanted the curtains to be simple.
Then I set the goal for Christmas when my family was coming and it didn't happen. My cute name plaques didn't even get up although they were basically done.

Now I am happy to say that the room is pretty much done except a few blank wall spaces that I could fill if I find anything cute, but for the most part it's finished. Oh, and the only other thing I'm lacking is some type of cork board or something by their blue table to display art work - any ideas? Savannah always tells me she's an "artist" (only you have to say it with a British accent b/c that's how she says it).

So here are some pictures:
This is my favorite part of the room: I stole this idea from Amy's friend, Ras, and it was incredibly easy and cheap compared to buying them in a store. The girls love it because they recognize their names and it's actually helped London with writing hers as well.
I just love these little picture frames I bought at Target a year or two ago and now the girls are excited to have pictures of themselves when they were younger in their rooms -- children are so narcissistic sometimes, but I'd rather have that than to have girls with low self-esteem so I'm not complaining.

On another note, today is my nephew, Davyn's, birthday. 3 years old and cute as can be. I'll post more about this after his party tonight because I know there'll be an amazing Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake to photograph and the cutest chubby-cheeked birthday boy to go alongside it.

Nice room , especially loving the curtains-great idea- and the name boards. How did you do them?

Susan said...

This room is super cute. I haven't loved the curtains in Bethany's room so I just might copy your idea. How did you make the name boards?

Mandi, their room looks so cute! I wanted to paint Avery and Emerson's room that color, but it totally freaked Keith out, and we compromised on a lighter shade. But, I wish I had pressed for brighter sometimes. I love those name plaques! And the ribbon on the curtains was brilliant.

So adorable! I love the green and I love their names on the wall! I made a bulliten board thing that was easy for Abby to hang up her art stuff on. I'll email it to you when I remember to take a picture of it. It is simple and I felt crafty making it.

Mandi-Phil got sensitive just a few times during the procedure, they were like little zingers nt constant. Then when we were done his lower teeth were sensitive. It lasted throughout the night but is easily managed with Ibuprofen, Phil just wouldn't take any because he is stubborn. If you are worried he won't follow through then do the ZOOM! and he won't have any complaints until the end. Many of my patients don't have any problems at all, or with the results they get they would do it again despite the minor discomfort.
