Kayden's Room....FINALLY

Hello Blog Family! I must admit that I feel like it has taken us forever to get Kayden's room done, but I am happy to report that it is done...or as close to done as it is going to get. This room was truly a labor of love for my DH and I and I am happy with how it turned out.

The only thing that I might have change is the intensity of the pink color on the can be a bit shocking, but Kayden loves it...hard to believe..HUH? It would also be nice if she kept it clean every once and a while, but that will not happy until she moves out...RIGHT?!?!?!?! And I am not super thrilled about the tree graphic, but like the concept. I am thinking of having a artist come in to create a tree completely in brown or find a vinyl one that is all one uniform color.

So, here is the lowdown:

1. All of the window and closet valances along with the bed skirt were made by me.

2. All of the painting was completed by me and my DH, but mostly me. That poor man did not have the patience to hand paint each scallop...and yes, I was referred to as CRAZY on a number of occasions.

3. The mirror once belong to my SIL when she was five years old, some 40 years ago...dear God, I hope that she does not read this blog! Age is sensitive subject for some women :) I refinished the frame and had it reassembled at a local glass worth the $25.

4. The frames near the closet doors are those ordered from YelliKelli, over at Etsy.

5. I am in the process of cutting the pieces for a custom quilt using the room fabrics. The coverlet on the bed now is a fill in as we night train Kayden :(

So, our next project is my new office/workout room. This one should be complete in a few weeks. I have already picked the fabrics for the window the hard part is complete! Now, I just need to find some time to sew!

Thanks for looking!

Very cute! And you are NUTS for doing those scallops but they look great! The pink is pretty vibrant but if that's why Miss K likes, go for it :)

Thank you Melly Mel!!! It is DEFINITELY pink but that is what happens when you give a 3 YO the option to choose. I am sure that in two years, it will be something different :)

It's beautiful! I remember seeing the painting... wait? Was that like over a year ago?

Handmade Mama said...

Mary, don't call me out like that :) Now that I think about it...Kayden was 2.5 when she chose the paint color :) Thanks for your sweet compliment!

The room is so girly and I like it. Yes, the pink is bright, but thats what little people like. It is only for a season, or maybe not! You pulled it all together well.

Thank you Kristy for your sweet compliments. I now need to figure out how to get the images to increase in size when selected. And yes, the pink will only be for a season...I am picking the next time!
