{harper's room}

you are our greatest adventure....

i'm so very happy with how her room turned out. to catch you up a little.... when we found out we were having a girl, i was quickly overwhelmed (or underwhelmed) by PINK and the lack of anything other than stinkin' pink!!! i'm by far, not a girly-girl! but purple has been my favorite color since i could talk... so it seemed like a good compromise. as we started putting her room together, little wisps of pink found themselves creeping into her room, but i'm slowly becoming ok with that, HA! once we decided on the shade(s) of purple we wanted to go with for the walls we took off running! we decided to do a slightly darker shade of purple on one wall and the the other three a little lighter. i wanted to go with a "gray" purple and i think we managed that! the bedding her daddy bought for her, is mostly browns... which was beyond perfect!!! it ties the giraffe theme in so nicely.

after painting/before any of the furniture went in. the giraffe art was the first thing i made for her. you can see the step by step tutorial for that project (click on picture) after painting/before any of the furniture went in. the giraffe art was the first thing i made for her.




then came the fun part... once we started getting the furniture put together and in her room, it really started taking shape! then came the fun part... once we started getting the furniture put together and in her room, it really started taking shape!





we quickly got a few things in place. Lilly is still convinced that rug is for her. I'm ok with that; it puts her in a great spot to protect her baby sister! we quickly got a few things in place.
