the little details...

I worked on two small projects for Averi's room this past week.
I took inventory of what I had on hand. Then I went to my good friend Mr. Pinterest for some inspiration.
The first thing that caught my eye was a girl's dress in a vintage frame above a bed. I LOVED that idea! I thought this would be perfect for her closet door, it needed a little something. This accessory turned out sweet and very girly.
Perfect for Little Miss...

I had the vintage frame on hand and I painted it pink with the leftovers from her wall color (Verbena from Sherwin Williams). For the inset of the frame, I thought the burlap provided a great backdrop and contrast to the white sundress. Averi wore that sweet little dress for her Fancy Girl Tea Party this past summer. So, for my husband who says I don't have a sentimental bone in my body... I think I did great creating a piece with some sentimental value :) 

The other project I did was with a couple photos of Averi. I got this fabulous idea from The Winthrop Chronicles . I followed her step-by-step instructions for putting a photo on a piece of wood for a wall hanging. This was such a fun project! Here's how my photos turned out...

So beware friends and family! You might be getting something mod podged to a piece of wood for Christmas this year because I think this is just BRILLIANT!
The other project I've done for Averi's room is this charming bedside table .
