Plus, I didn't stop to think that the store where I purchased the glitter stripes from would seldom have that particular item in stock. It became a waiting game... I would buy some one day and then wait a couple weeks later sometimes to buy more. It didn't help that when the item was in stock that only two or three rolls were available at a time. The length of the stripes allowed each roll to only give five full stripes. The room design required much more than that!
|Glitter stripes! These were so hard to find (bought them at Michael's)|
and I had to wait weeks sometimes before I could buy another roll.
It took several months but I declare this room done! I know I will always be tempted to continue to add and change things around here and there just like with any other room in the house but I feel like I'm finally content with the end result. I'm constantly seeing adorable things that I want to add to the room so that makes it harder for me to stop doing "touch ups" to it.
|This is on the front of her bedroom door.|
|I couldn't bare to put away some of my fave outfits on her so I hung them up.|
|Wooden tea items I found at the craft store. I just painted them and stuck them on the wall.|
|Her first few pairs of shoes.|
|This lantern was originally hanging above her crib and the veil (my wedding veil) was spread out like a canopy above the crib but we rearranged her room and just stuck it up in this corner.|
The most adorable thing in the room, though, is Lyla Brielle. She does an amazing job of bringing everything together. She completes the room as a sweet angel who wakes (me) in the morning, a precious princess who plays in there during the day (or more often a curious adventurer like Alice) and as a sleeping beauty who dreams in there at night.
I enjoyed working on this project and although it gave me plenty of satisfaction to create, we (Daddy and I) wanted it as a gift to our baby girl ...just like she has been a gift to us.

|Alice necklace and clock for white rabbit|
|Her angel wings she retired lol|
I know she's enjoyed this room and we (especially me) will miss it when we have to move and say good-bye...
...but then, she'll have a new room and another project for me! I wonder...how should I decorate it next time?...
See my hub post for the tips/ideas I used to decorate this nursery.
Until next time,
