Now to the final look of their rooms. They looks so pretty, I think. And most importantly, the two younger people in this house are very happy with their new (looking) space.
Siena’s room looks so pretty, I think. (This picture above is her room complete, with (some) picture on the walls and the bookshelf painted blue, to match. The one here below is from few months ago, when not everything was put together just yet.)
We worked hard in turning it bright and clean and organized as she likes her own days to be. She picked a blue that is just beautiful (can’t remember the name right now) and we decided not only to add it to some trims, as she first wanted, but a whole wall, which I think makes her room more fun.
A beautiful calming blue, that reminds this swimmer, of water. Her favorite place to be, anytime. A poster of Missy Franklin (of her new documentary movie we had a chance to watch last winter) and other important things on the walls. (But still not finished decorating even today, few months after we are done with the painting. She’s still deciding what goes where.)
Siena’s ribbons she’s earned in her two and half years of swimming. She set them up with masking tape first, and they are still like that, and I kinda’ like it. But I am not so sure about the paint… it might come off when she peels the tape. Oh dear… we’ll see when we get there.
And Siena’s trophies as well… hard working and well earned. Such an amazing, and dedicated this girl of ours. (Proud mama here, sorry for bragging.)
Siena wanted a chair in her room to sit and hang out.
We got this one at Target (can’t really see it) and she didn’t really like the fuzzy, warm cushion for the summer, so she put the swimming quilt I made for her last year.
Maybe we need to make something that fits to the round chair a little better. I’ll have to do some research.
I made this puff with the same fabric from the curtains we bought for her windows. She had “little person” curtains, that I asked my mom to make when I was pregnant with Siena. I kept them because I think we should make something with them… but these curtains now…. look so nice in her room.
I had to trim the curtains because the windows are on top of her bed, so I had plenty of fabric to make her a little cushion. (Because I made it back in March… now I don’t remember which pattern I used, but I’ll look and see if I made any notes.)
And this is it. For now. We are all enjoying the change and she keeps her room so organized all the time, I love it.
