Over the Bed



You might remember that we are in the (slow) process of updating Grace's room.  For whatever reason it's coming together slowly!  She really needed a new mattress and we decided to go ahead and get a double bed for her.  Which prompted me to prematurely sell her bedroom set and now she doesn't have a dresser!  I didn't realize it would be so difficult to find a dresser for her that we were happy with!

Anyway, she LOVES her new bed and this past weekend we made a gallery wall of sorts for over the bed.  We hung her "An Adventure a Day" poster in the center and then worked around that.  I found it helpful to use Martha's tip of using paper frames to play around with the placement before we put any holes in the wall.  I traced the frame onto kraft paper and taped up the shapes to see where they looked best.


The mermaid print is one that Grace bought herself in Cape Cod.  She loved that the mermaid had red hair.


Her first ballet shoes.


A card we gave her from when she performed in The Nutcracker (again, the dancer has red hair) and her little mice that she loves so.


And just for levity...


I also can't find a nightstand.  Not sure why I thought I had to sell all the furniture together.....

  3. That's a great suggestion for hanging a grouping of framed items. That nightstand and the mustache on the lamp are great for grins. I remember cardboard furniture very well.

  7. It really all started with deciding it was time to get her out of her crib and into a 'big girl bed'. She hadn't been climbing out of the crib as most of our children started doing by this age, and we had some concerns that she wouldn't like being in a new bed. best mattress for stomach sleepers

  12. big girl bed looks really comfy. Sleeping is very essential for children's growth. It's important for them to have ample and undisturbed sleep, and providing them a great mattress would give them that much needed sleep. latex memory foam mattress
