I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving! I know we did here, until last night when I went to reheat leftovers and discovered that my oven isn’t working, ugh! Oh well, what can you do. I guess it means I get a new oven, which is something to look forward to. But I’m not a fan of THOSE kinds of surprises.
The kind of surprises I like are good ones. Like a surprise visit, a surprise present. Something fun. Louisa got a super surprise today, and I’m going to share it with you. She spent Thanksgiving with her dad and his family. He dropped her off this morning on his way to hunting camp. She was very excited to see her mom and her grandpap. And of course Eddie. But she wasn’t prepared for what she was going to see when she walked into her bedroom.
While she was away, her mom and grandpap had totally redone her room! Louisa is a fan of zebras, so her mom thought it would be a fun theme for her room. It didn’t hurt that she found that chest of drawers while out shopping. 😉
“This is AWESOME!!! Thank you so much! I feel so grown up now with my room all done up like this.”
“Isn’t this awesome Lily? I can’t wait to show it to Alya!”
In case you are wondering: the walls are a fold up display board. The bed, chair, chest of drawers, shelf on the wall and most of the toys/littles in the room all came from thrift stores (a few are new). I made the bedding as well as the chair cushions. The wallpaper border as well as the window frame are all scrapbook paper. Bookshelf was in the clearance section at TJ Maxx, storage chest at the end of the bed came from Hobby Lobby. The photograph’s are out of my person collection, just resized and cropped for what I needed, put into frames from a craft store. I did remove the glass from the frames for safety’s sake. I have about $30 in this room total. When I’m done, it all fits in a box for storage that would easily slide under a bed. It just goes to show that you don’t need to spend a ton of money or have a lot of space to come up with a cute doll room! Just an idea and some work. I blame this one on the zebra jewelry box!
