Penelope's Room

Penelope's room design started with fabric chosen from a Michael Miller line.  A very talented Etsy momma (Holly of ModifiedTot) sewed the curtains and the bedding and I couldn't recommend her enough.  Everything turned out so beautiful. 
The shortest wall was painted in stripes to match the fabric in the dust ruffle. Now that Penny is almost 2 she loves pointing out each stripe and saying what color it is.
These shelves are actually spice racks from IKEA that were spray painted orange.
My husband made us this wooden canvas and I painted custom artwork to match the room.
I used cards from Penelope's first birthday party to make artwork framed with IKEA frames.
Penelope's dad brought her back those cool pencils from Peru and I thought they were too cute to use so they serve as decor for now.  Some of her favorite stuffies get primo seating on the display shelves that dad built special for her room.
All sweet gifts from her baby shower.
This shows a better view of the custom bedding from ModifiedTot and the mural wall to match my favorite fabric of the bunch.
Lastly Luke cut out a "P" from wood for her door and I modge podged scrap fabric over it to match her room. 
It took me two years to finally blog this room because it's my daughter's room and to me it's never done.  I'm still adding things all the time and honestly, it's never this clean because she runs around it like a tornado daily.  But I think she loves her room and I do too.

Conner's Dinosaur Room

Conner's parents wanted a dinosaur theme for his new big boy room. We chose a cartoon style and bright and bold colors for this toddler's space.



Russell's PNC Park Mural

This project was from some repeat customers and we were happy for the business.  Russell's dad loves his Pittsburgh sports and very much wanted a PNC Park mural.  We can say this was our most detailed mural to date.
We chose a night sky theme on fireworks night.

Russell's name got the baseball red stitching details.


A small personal touch and a nod at dad's college baseball experience.

A bat and a ball add some interest to the opposite wall.

Some detail of the stands, scoreboard and outfield.  Each pretend person was painted into place.
