Miss Spunk gets a room!

Poor Spunky. She has had a mattress on the floor with some old grey sheets my brother once used. Her blue curtains came with the house and her precious things were piled here and there in misc baskets. Poor neglected child.So how do you create a room that expresses someone so sparkly...and covered in dirt at the same time? How do you make a room that belongs to princess pea in a pod who is playing in the backyard wearing a tutu, cowboy boots, swimming goggles, and digging for earth worms all at the same time? Well...how 'bout we ask her?
After an entire day of searching for rooms online, Esther found this sheet set that she "Just had to have". It fits her perfectly. Frogs, flowers, and polka dots- as well as her favorite color combo- pink and green! I declared it perfect (I was ready to declare anything perfect after a day of window shopping with this child). I let her choose lots of other little details too that will be seen later...when I actually get them done...

And remember those old presswood shelves everyone told me to leave behind? (They were free from a store that was going out of business). Well. Look at them now! I misjudged how high the bed would be and Esther will need a wee step stool to safely climb up there. A bed stool! For a three year old! How awesomely cool is that!
And my curtains turned out lovely. Not completely done. I still have some details to finish (like the hem) but have to make a store run to buy those little details. Just wait til you see what I have planned.

Stay tuned. This is just parts one and two. Part 3 is a doozy and part 4 is all those little accessories that will make our crafty decorating hearts swoon.

PS: please excuse naked miss katie up there on the bed. Katie is a bit of a nudist and in an effort to shun modern conventions, she hid all her clothes.
PS#2: This morning is rather dark and gloomy. If it brightens up a bit I will snap some better photographs- cause the ones I posted STINK!
