bedroom for sometime now while she made it clear to me that
she is not about butterflies and hearts " no not my girl"
she is like her mama beating to her own drum...
so after much thought and sticking to my frugal decorating style
I decided to play off my girls love for horses and give her a fit for
a princess room Urban City style...
I put together my inspiration vignette to begin my design plans
It started with the Craiglist petite antique dresser
that had me at first sight...
it was so perfect for a little girl
I then started hunting for the elements of this room
I wanted that rustic urban feel without cowgirl
I had purchased these beautiful pillows from
my friend Princess Rose of The Tarnished Crown
I am still deciding on which linen bedding for her room
I want that expensive look and yet be kid friendly
and who doesn't love a hubby who finds sweet
birds nest for me & Rose...
I gathered old school books from estate sales and
added my mama's gardening scissors that she used
when she was a young girl
I want Gracie to know she comes from strong women
the prop chair is made by Tori West
who sells her pieces at Vets & Irvine Flea Market
once I saw that chair
my inspiration vignette includes
beautiful paper princess crowns made for Gracie
and I by my friend Amy of Mittens
and a vintage tin given to me by two sweet
sisters who are regulars at Country Roads
to celebrate my one year at the store
I hearts these ladies...
this vintage suitcase will be part of Gracie's room
given to me by my dear friend Jo Lee who gave me
the name " Salvage Dior " for my blog
I will be using shutters that I salvaged from the trash
and reclaimed wood on some of the projects for her room
to keep the cost low
her makeover budget is less than 300.00
and that includes paint, bedding and furnishings
I picked up her vintage school desk for 5.00 along with
a vintage chair and hamper for 20.00
here is the vintage chair for the school desk
I will be posting as we make progress in her room
wait till you see the head & foot board I found
to go along with this dresser
many of the vignette items will be at Country Roads
this week along with vintage furniture
This is Deb and I lounging at the show yesterday
Deb gave me the most incredible day out filled with
shopping, food and most of all her friendship...
love you girly...
then I go the added surprise to see my friend Missy
of Chateau Chic Boutique and her sweet hubby
my mama will be drawing a winner on Wednesday
so there is still time to enter the giveaway in my
lots of love from
me and my Gracie girl
