woodland room






I just finished this little Red Riding Hood bed for H. I bought the bed frame at that same amazing estate sale where I found the cool chairs. The bed frame was originally an unattractive orange colored finish. I painted it white, then slowly, slowly have worked on the woodland scene. H.'s room was originally linen white, but I decided to make the bold move of painting it green. I was inspired by Hilary's son's green room(www.weewonderfuls.typepad.com). The table is used for changing the baby and folding laundry. The table cloth is an antique French linen sheet. (I'm crazy about these. You can find them on ebay.) The washer/dryer are hidden away behind the white linen curtains. What you can't see in these pictures--I'll post more later--are the tiny white balls sewn all over the curtains. That was a bit of a painstaking endeavor that I accomplished during car drives to the beach this summer. The dresser was originally a cherry-stained filing cabinet that I painted white years ago. The lamp is an ebay find.

H.'s bedroom is in the top of the house with distant views of trees and woods all around. It's so lovely. I think a woodland bedroom fits perfectly in this space.

Oh my gosh...this room is so inspiring. I think it is the perfect little girl's room. You definitely have the wheels turning in my head now...if only I could paint (and sew) like you talented gals at Sugar City!
