Busy's Room Got Worked Over Too!!!

It was too hot to play outside today in our garden...so I decided to tackle Busy's room!!!
When I did Jordan's room all crazy and bright...Ashlyn decided that she too would choose her own paint and decor....I did draw the line at the Dora bedspread...but the Dora comforter and sheets are under the pink one...lol
Alas...Busy had a sad face that she didn't need a new room....as she keeps hers nice and tidy...(thank goodness at least one of my kids turned out like me...lol) (pretty sure my own mom would beg to differ about what "used" to be...) I opted to try NOT to paint...here is what I came up with...(pretty sure I need to paint...)
Think she likes it???
Oh Yea...she likes it a lot...she picked the coverlet out all by herself...there was pink (ugly) and blue/green/lavender....and that's what she chose...Phew!
I love this bedding!!!
What's that? You want a close up of the details on the fabric??? Sure...
You can't see it in the photo...but there is quite a bit of her wall color in there...
A couple of very old babies and a jewel box...her dresser is so clean...she did it herself...LOTS of Pledge went into this...the carpet in front of it is like a skating rink to prove it!
I just used cream color sheers... more dollar store tassels...and added some of these dollar store medallions...they just pin on...and they added some interest to the plain sheers.
closer peek.This window/mirror...used to be in the sun room..it was olive green and pale yellow. I whitewashed it with some paint...and added some flowers, a lace runner, another tassel and her baby hat.
ALL the Barbies and their house were moved to the closet along with the other toys. Many toys were packed up at Ashlyn's request to give to someone else...("them are for babies mom"
And that my friends is the end of the story.
I still want to add some small book shelves to the one wall....and possibly paint...when I get a rainy day outside.

Her room turned out really nice too. I'm bribing my 10 year old daughter with a room makeover if she can keep hers clean for awhile. I don't understand how such a messy kid can come from such a clean mom? :)

Jesikarena said...

I love the bedspread! That looks like something I would want (if I wasn't married : )

Darla said...

You go from snow to too hot to be outside? It will hit 100 degrees here tomorrow. Trying to enlarge a flower bed in this heat is NUTS! I love what you did to both of the children's rooms. That Busy is one cutie pie! Someone told me to tell in my comment section to tell you it is not too late to plant sunflowers. I actually have some new seedlings up for the Great Sunflower Project, Hunt for Bees!

Dirt Princess said...

awwww it is so sweet and cozy! It is funny to me that they went total opposite directions from what they originally had. You and Lil Sis did a great job ;)

Carol said...

Looks like you have a future HGTV designer living in your house! Busy's room looks awesome!

Lisa (aka) French said...

Tootsie this is perfectly darling for a litttle girl love it!! Hugs French;)

CiNdEe said...

Another make over that looks awesome! Her room looks fit for a Princess(-:
No Sisterly help on this one?(-:
My daughter had Barbies till she was in 5th grade. She loved them. She had the house and the whole thing. She was not neat and tidy though. but I helped her keep things organized in her room.

Tootsie, You're so amazingly clever! This is my favorite room & it's gorgeous! Busy is just too cute for words!

Where'd you find the "crown" table? ☺ Diane

Jacki said...

So pretty - I love the little decor touches, perfect and just enough of them. Very nice! I wish I could pare my own decor down that much.

Coloradolady said...

Betty said...

I love the new bedspread and the way you have the bed. I still like the wall color.

Blondie's Journal said...

How sweet, Tootsie! Ashlyn's room looks a little more grown~up, her idea I am sure! ;-)

I am just in love with the mirror/window and I like what you did to it with the lace and flowers... very creative. And the bed spread is fabulous.

I hope Ashlyn dreams pretty dreams in her pretty room!

I just love this room...so bright and cheerful....& so so sweet. I love the wall color and think it looks great!

The Genius said she loves you and next time she'll say Hi to Tootsie when she jumps from the plane instead of OMG OMG { you can see her mouth saying this twice on the video as they are jumping....lol. }

Hugs to you~ J

Busy has good taste! A chip off the ol' block! Her room turned out perfectly - a cute room for a cute girl! ~ Robyn

Julie said...

This wall color is the exact color of the room I sleep in now (it used to belong to my daughter)!!!
I saw a pic in a magazine once and have never forgotten it...they used curtains of cranberry and white and I believe some dark blue, with matching bedding and it really made the purple room look lovely! I need to try and re-create it...my old curtains are falling apart from the sun!!!

Great job here, and I know Busy is so happy!!! I like her dollies!!!

Boosalis Bloggle said...

lilsista said...

Janera said...

Love it! I just re-did my son's old room, and now it's a girly guest room. Maybe temporary, since I'm not all that girly, but I'm lovin' it right now.

You and daughter did good work!
