Well, we finally did it. We downsized from a 3500 sq ft house to a 2000 sq ft house. It feels GOOD! So cozy, like a little cottage! To help ease the move for both of our daughters, we let them pick out how they wanted their rooms decorated. Our youngest chose a rock-n-roll theme with zebra accents for her new room. We had a very limited budget, so I took an old brown wooden dresser that I had in the guest room (all of that furniture had to go, no guest room in the new house) and painted it black. To keep it from looking to goth in a little girls bedroom, I used zebra-patterened duct tape on the knobs and painted the insets on the side in chalkboard paint so that she can compose songs as they come to her mind!
I lined the drawers with zebra-patterned wrapping paper left over from her birthday. I didn't seal it yet, but will probably use some Mod-Podge to seal it up.
In her clubhouse, she put her pink chair and the metal trashcan from my workroom. I also gave her my little black shelves and added zebra duct tape across the top to keep it again from looking to dark.
I found the little mirror guitar wall hanging at Hobby Lobby for $20 (it was originally $40, but was on sale. What perfect timing!).
And of course, a rock-n-roll room isn't complete without a star on the door. We still have to add her name, but I haven't found that box yet (we are still unpacking ~ LOL!)
I still have to make her wall hangings and add some posters of her favorite stars, but it is coming right along!

This little project is a haunted house that my sister is going to use for her Halloween wedding. I think it is turning out pretty cute. Of course, I still have a lot to do to it, but I have until October to finish it :)
The trim on the windows is Distressed Stickles in Bronze. I applied the first layer, let it dry and then applied a second layer. The second layer helped give it a little more dimension. There is probably a better way to do this, but I am just working with the supplies that I had on hand.
This is the inside of the house. I used coordinating scrapbook paper as the wallpaper and rug.
Thanks for dropping by! Hope you have a wonderful week!

So many wonderful visitors have joined us, just look at everyone! Megan Sunflower, Alice, Pennelope the White Rabbit, and Riley the Mad Hatter! Everyone is very glad that we moved the party inside, since we are having wonderful rain storms today!
I think I saw the Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit eyeing the goodie table.

My daughter and I had so much fun at Donna Downey's scrapbooking class. She is such an amazingly nice person and very talented! Of course, I didn't finish. However, I brought it home and did my own thing to it without the time constraints! Now I just have to find some great photos of my family to put in this cute little book!
