Aftons bedroom

I didn't get a before picture of Afton's room but it looked a little something like this. Rusty terracota orange and yellow. Not bad but not cute for a little girls room.

I painted it a light tealish color and then put up a few things: Afton's birth announcement, pictures at the hospital, her one year old pic, and an almost 2 pic. The frames I got on clearance at K-mart and Sears for $2.50-3.00. Some I painted.

We were given this bookshelf from members in our ward that were leaving. The top was water stained and chipped so I made a little cover for it. I don't like it a whole lot. I guess it ended up being just a little to busy, but it looks better than it did before! Luckily it didn't cost a thing, I just used some left over fabric from her banner and crib bedding that I made before she was born. Aunt Ashlee sent Afton her little piggy that she loves!

I painted some clothespins and used some string to hang up Aftons papers, pictures and art.
This banner I made. Fabric here is so cheap but it's hard finding stuff you want or like. I don't think I've paid more than $3.00 a yard. And occasionally you'll find great designer stuff for that price.

And that is Afton's room so far. It was fun decorating it since it was the first time I have been able to. She shared our room for the first little while then was moved out into the living room. ha ha. Pretty pathetic but a one bedroom in San Diego is about all we could afford! Then when we moved to fresno we didn't know how long we would be there so we didn't bother decorating her room. So finally she has something more than white walls and a bed... not that, that isn't ok too. ;)
