Fit for a Princess

Linnea's bed...one of my favorite corners of our home. A former closet was repurposed with drawers and a platform for the mattress. When Sofi and Izzy arrived we knew we needed a quick, inexpensive, special solution...and this is what my sister helped us come up with. I added the curtains, teacups, and part of our old dining room chandelier. Once inside, it is a little nook, with a bookshelf on the left, and a window on the right. Mark added decorative molding, and it is truly a special spot fit for a princess. It is also a wonderful escape from her two little sisters!


Years ago, Dad took down a wall to reconfigure the bedrooms and add a masterbath. Our home went from 4 bedrooms to 3. This left a flooring issue that was covered with wall to wall carpet. I ripped the carpet out, and Mark refinished the floors a year ago. The girls and I had fun making a little patchwork across the room. They added their names on the paper, and Mark sealed the floors right over it. It's quirky and fun, and I love it.


A little Window makeover for the walls....


Happy Friday!
