Are you into Poodles, Pink or Paris? If so, you might like this room that I designed for my daughter (she used to love pink:)) I started collecting items for this room a little over four years ago. We found out we were moving – so I held off on starting in the room until we moved; I finished the room over 2 years ago. I painted the wall stripes Cupcake by Martha Stewart ( the paints are no longer available but I do have the formula below). The lighter color of the paint is 75% of the original color.
Maroon 1 (64)
R4 New Red 47 (32) 1 (64)
Y3-Deep Gold 1 (32) 1 (120)the numbers in parentheses are the colorant oz
not sure if the maroon is R1?? This paint color is the darker of the pink stripes.
Sewing is a hobby of mine; I sewed the polka dotted seat cushion and collected the rest of the pillows. The wood awning was designed by me and put together by my contractor (who happened to be at our house installing kitchen cabinets).
Round mirror was purchased at Lowes for $10 (don’t cha love this kind of find). As you can see in the reflection of the mirror, there is a full-length mirror on the opposite wall (purchased for $6 from Walmart). I hot glued black feather boas around the perimeter of the mirror.
The chair was designed and made by me a couple of years ago. It’s a no sew project. You can find all the details on how to make this DIY Parisian chair. It’s amazing what a hot glue gun, fishing line, and a rubber band can do : )
Chalkboard paint was used on the closet doors. The doors are trimmed out in the same pink as the dark stripes on the wall. A little heart (with wings) next to the closet doors holds the chalk. My daughter and her friends are constantly writing and rewriting on the chalkboard.
Yes, I know there are no photos in the photos frames. One day….
I love this tea set. I purchased 20 sets when I owned my party business (sold the business and the tea sets). Here is a similar tea set.
This rug was designed and painted by me (inspired by this rug). Want to make your own floor rug? Check out tomorrows blog post for a how-to project.
Yes, this use to be a brass chandelier – until I got a hold of it. Blogged about here.
Purchase Eiffel Tower wall decal here.
The following art pieces would look great in this room. However, I do not know where to purchase them.
