Averi's Bedroom: dressed up for Christmas...

I was able to get Averi's bedroom dressed up a bit for Christmas!
Come on in and you can see what we came up with...
Her door is right at the top of the stairs.
She wanted everyone to be greeted by "Popcorn," her beautiful horse.
(popcorn is only in her dreams but someday we hope to have a real one.)

As you open the door, here's what you see...

 Averi wanted a HOT PINK room. I wanted a VERY SOFT PINK for her room. We compromised on Verbena from Sherwin Williams. Her room has become an ode to Rachel Ashwell and my love for all things Shabby Chic.

The bedding is from the Simply Shabby Chic line at Target.
It is my absolute favorite and it looks great on the vintage iron bed frame.

(and lucky me, i found the bedding in a cute little consignment shop. the lady sold me 2 duvet covers, a full set of sheets, 3 pillow shams, 3 pillow cases and a matching shower curtain for a total of 50 dollars. i don't think you can even buy the set of sheets for that price!!!)

The smaller pillows were done with extra fabric that tie into the bedding perfectly...

Averi's dresser is also from Rachel's Simply Shabby Chic line at Target.
This dresser is one of the very few pieces of furniture we have ever bought from a store. As you have come to find out... I by vintage furniture generally one piece at a time from thrift stores, garage sales, auctions, craigslist or get it as a "hand-me down" (i love it when that happens). This dresser was an exception to the rule. I saved and  bought it for our bedroom when we moved into our very first home. Now, it has found its' place in Averi's room and it has a great vintage feel to it.

The Christmas details include:
a bow, some ribbon, candles, ornaments and a Christmas song in a frame

For her charming bedside table, we decorated her little tree...

If you want to see what this vintage thrift store table looked like before you can see it in this post .

a few of the other details are the burlap bunting...

and a little burlap and ribbon to the candles...
Just how I prefer things, simple and sweet!

I love how her room is coming together.
We still have some more projects before we can call it done, but we're getting there.

Hope you enjoyed her room.  Little Miss was pretty excited about this post :)
