"Children at Play" Boy and Girl Shared Bedroom

Time for baby girl to share a room with big brother! I gave the walls a fresh coat of paint, repurposed the curtains, sewed a pillow and got a few new pieces of art/decor for the walls and the rest we already had. It turned out so great and the room feels bigger and cleaner. I am happy to report everyone is sleeping through the night now :) Sources at bottom of post.



Wall Color: Sherwin Williams Worldly Gray
Curtains: homemade by me using queen size sheet and old red panels
Letters: old, from Kohl's
Crib bedding: old, pink chevron sheet from Target; quilt: gift; pillow handmade from Sarah Jane Children at play fabric "On Parade." 
Twin bedding: levi quilt old, handmade by me; standard pillow sham made from repurposed mens dress shirts; throw pillow handmade from Sarah Jane Children at play fabric "Rocket Launch Club."
Wall decor/art: Art clip boards from craft fair/sister in law; I love to see the temple and Rocket Launch Club art prints from Sarah Jane Studios; On Parade canvas handmade by me; Love one another and Seek after these things art prints from Jones Design Company.

March Teacher Appreciation Idea: Dr. Seuss and School Supplies.

"The news just came in from the County of King.
The staff here at ____ is A-MA-ZING!
March is the month, the 2nd's the week.
A celebration we're having, so try not to shriek.
We want you to show thanks for all that you do.
You're the best of the best, we appreciate YOU!

Have a COLORFUL week!"
