So, I had this other post I wanted to post today, but since Laelia has been what I shall refer to as “clingy-sick”, I haven’t been able to put the work into it in order to get it done on time. So instead I’m sharing my vague ideas about where I’d like to go with these $5 night stands we scored at the Rose Bowl. I was originally inspired by these nightstands from The Land of Nod.
Pretty cute, but I knew I would want to customize it a bit more. Not in love with those knobs, anyway. I think I did a pretty good job of finding something comparable for a fair price. ~.^
I’m really loving the yellow and the white here:
The above photo also really pushes me towards painting the walls a very pale gray. My brother said pale gray is too boring for a kids room, but I love the idea of having artwork and furniture pop off the walls more, instead of competing with the walls. I also love the idea of painting her walls a dark dark gray for the same effect, but since we’ve got a dark hallway, and our bedroom is going dark blue… I think we’ll just make her room a lighter color.
I know i definitely want to do something to the inside little open shelf–either paint it a different color, but more likely, use pattern in there somehow:
I’m pretty excited to get started! Now that I have a good idea where I’m heading with the quilt, I can start working on the other colors in the room!
