A Little Girl’s Room Makeover Reveal

A little girl’s room makeover reveal has been in the works for months.

We have been working on it a little at a time

working with a small budget.

So today, my little sweetie and I are revealing her room,

her space that she shares with her grandmother when we are crafting.

Let’s begin with the furniture.

Birdcage Vignette and Dancing to the Furniture Shuffle

Okay….so we buy one thing and then here comes the “domino effect.”

Then we find another great deal and I am finding myself

dancing to the beat of the “Furniture Shuffle”

However, I do not need to purchase anything to warrant the dance.

Just the need for a change. Change is always a good thing.

There are some changes in the Master Bedroom that caused the relocation of the bird cage.

Where oh where was I going to put it?

If I did this . . . then I would have to do that . . . and so it goes . . . and this is what happened.

Simply Spring in the Guest Room

I have been busy “springifying” each room in my house . .

~ ~ and now the guest room is dressed for Spring.

Guest Room/Tole Trays

The first thing I did to “Springify” the room was to add these tole trays. .

~ ~ of great floral colors. . .

~ ~ ~ ~ they replaced my trio of fabric framed art.

Guest Room/Tole Trays

I really love how the tole trays blend so well with the bed frame and chandy.

Birdcage Vignette

I am slowly making some small changes in my master bedroom…

I have a dresser that has a “matchy” mirror.

I tried to “hide” that fact by placing a large birdcage in front of the dresser.

Housepitality Designs

It did the trick..but it was time for a change.

Housepitality Designs

This area seemed to be the perfect fit.

Housepitality Designs

I bought this birdcage a few years ago at our neighborhood yard sale.


It actually has two additional sections that you can add to the bottom portion.

Housepitality Designs

I added an orchid from Trader Joe’s to the vignette and placed it in a vintage American Fostoria vase.

Housepitality Designs

The Leah Hurricane from Pottery Barn remains on the table…

In the morning when the sun is shining through the windows…

…..there are beautiful little reflections of rainbow colors on the wall.

Housepitality Designs

They are from my Swarovski Crystals that hang in my windows..

Housepitality Designs

I so enjoy this “mini light show” every morning…just starts the day off on a happy note!

And I hope your day started out on a happy note too!!!
