Emily's Room

I almost titled this Emily's Nursery but she is not really a baby any more:( I have never really been happy with Emily's room so I decided to do some tweaking. I rearranged the furniture and that really helped. I got rid of her changing table and put a small white table in its place and put her dresser in her closet. I wanted something to put above her crib and could never figure out what to hang above it that she couldn't pull down. I decided to paint a monogram over it. I also wasn't happy with the window treatment or the art work on the walls. Her window treatment was the first one that I have ever made and I just made it too full. I cut off about two feet and I like it so much better. Now it is more of a flat panel and not so balloony. I also made four pictures to go over her new table. I am very happy with how they turned out and it was cheap and easy. I took 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and cut out an animal with an x-acto knife and put another piece of scrapbook paper behind it. The frames were less then $5 each and the scrapbook paper was 30 cents each. I am so much happier with the room now!!!!
