Diana's Room

When I was a little girl my mom did my room in yellow and green. I had a canopy bed and she made me a yellow bedspread with two girls braiding hair. She designed my room around this wallpaper:

She made me lots of things to match! I wish I had a picture to show you. I had matching lamps, a chair pad, and wall hangings. Well, she saved a bunch of it. There was half a roll of wallpaper that she saved along with the bedspread, and a few other items. So I got this idea to redo it while adding a new artistic touch for Diana's room. Here is how it turned out:






I'll add that the whole project was really cheap! The paint was $25.00, my mom made the curtain for Diana's gift, the curtain rod was from our old house, the chair rail we already had for a project that we didn't end up needing it for, the wallpaper paste was $10, and the shelf was free.

I plan on painting the ceiling fan blades to match the wall and make some hanging from the small pieces of left over wall paper, but it could be a while until I get these finished.

I love it! It's really cute. I especially like the three-fourths high wallpaper. Very creative. And I like that it has sentimental value. :-)
