Corners of My Home - Sisters


This is my first post on "corners of my home". Now that I have my flickr account running, I can add some of the photos I have taken.
My girls share a bedroom. It is the largest bedroom in the house, even bigger that ours, but that isn't saying much. I figure they need the space more than we do. Anyway it is a beautiful, very pink, room. I love it and they love it. I wanted something to write on the wall and was searching for a long time, then one day it hit me (that's usually how things come to me,like a strike of lightning) "sisters". The writing is above a little seat that I made. My mother-in-law was throwing out three daggy pine bed-side tables and asked if I wanted them. I got my husband, a very handyman considering he is an IT risk auditor, to bolt them together and put some skirting around the bottom. I gave it several coats of paint, put on some new french handles and made the cushion to go top. It is such a fantastic piece of furniture for a child's bedroom. Lots of big storage (I am the storage queen) to pile things like dolls clothes, pjs and ello into, a seat for them to read on and looks pretty too. Hope you have enjoyed their room as much as they do. I will post more on other corners of our home another day.

How lovely! I shared a roon with my sister as a child but it wasn't half as nice as this! I would love to decorate a girly room but at the moment my daughter shares with her brother. I can't wait until she has her own space and I can indulge in my pink fantasy.
