When we had our Major home redo, Maggie wanted her room pink. She was 3 and she had cancer and well, if she wanted pink she got pink. I tried to pick a pink that wasn't too over the top and I am not sure how well I did. Of course, at the time, my mind was scattered and I was trying to make oodles of decisions (some major, some minor, and some uber major). She has oodles and oodles of schtuff that was given to her while she was in treatment and keeping it all organized is quite the challenge. [In some ways, it is harder for me to let go of things than her. For example: the Carebear that she got for taking her first dose of oral Tylenol at Riley. The nurse brought it to her as a reward. I remember that but she really doesn't.]
We kept the mini-blinds that came with the house when we bought it. However, we finally replaced the mini-blinds with a wee bit nicer ones that had thicker slats in them. (No, I don't believe that I am Irish....)
I had this chenille bedspread that I have kept around here for years. I used it in the "nursery" to cover the light blue recliner that we had in there. I loved the fringe on it and how quaint and vintage it is.
I had used curtains years ago to "dress" up a window cheaply and no, I didn't just hang it over the window. So I finally thought that I would try it with the bedspread.
I went to my hubby's stash of stuff in our basement and he has a bunch of dressy hooks. You know, the ones with details on it. I stuck those in the holes that were there from our previous curtain rod.
Then I took rubber bands and made a rosette out of the bedspread at one corner until I found the right dimensions to make it fit on both sides.
My next step was to put a hook in the wall next to the so that I could "drape" it.
I bought some ribbon to make a bow for tying back the "curtain".
Of course, there are Princess wall stickers above her window and all over her room too.
In the picture above, you can see the hooks that that we got at Target on clearance for like $5. Maggie had a horrible time being able to hang up her things. Now she has a perfect place to hang her jackets and bags.
What do you think?
