Lois's room is finished! It's been pretty much finished for months, but I wanted to make something to cover the dark fireplace and finally did that this week. I also wanted to finish her bunting. Both are done so welcome to Lois's room! If you saw her room in San Francisco or saw pictures on my blog, it's basically the same, mostly all the same stuff anyway, but I hung things in a different arrangement and she has some different curtains now. Almost everything in her room is either from Ikea, a flea market, or a thrift store. Here's the tour...
Daybed from Ikea and lots of pillows. One can never have too many pillows! At least I can't.
Some of the pillows are store bought, but a few are handmade. My aunt made this red ruffle pillow that I love.
This bird and tulip pillow came from a thrift store and I made the patchwork pillow behind it from one of Alicia Paulson's patterns.
Little doll named Lois came from the Alemany flea market in San Francisco.
Stripes here is from Laku, one of my favorite San Francisco shops.
Artwork by my nephews. Frames from Ikea.
Vintage books in a pew holder and "L" is for Lion vintage fabric from my friend Alex.
The wheels on the bus go round and round! Bus painting my Mose Tolliver. One time when I was in, I dunno, maybe middle school, I painted over one of his watermelon paintings--eek! I guess I just thought I could improve it. Woops.
You are Beautiful by Cathy Nichols on etsy.
Vintage Child Life magazines. Lisa gave these to me. I love them (just look!) and wish I could win bids on them on ebay, but I never do. The magazine holder is from Anthropologie.
Bunting! I made this bunting with her name on it this week. This is above her crib (which is from Ikea). My mom found the apron in an antique store. The dress on the far left is from Vintage Touch on etsy and the one on the right is from a shop in Atlanta, but I can't think of the store right now!
Curtains and her dresser (the top of it anyway). My aunt made the floral curtain, but I can't remember the name of the fabric right now. It's an older Amy Butler fabric. I think it's from her Gypsy Caravan collection. I made the yellow gingham panels to go underneath.
Custom bookplates from Oiseaux on etsy.
Lots of vintage books on a spinning rack my mom bought at a flea market (this thing weighs a ton and has been all over the place).
Above the book rack is artwork by my friend Michelle.
One of her birth announcements that I made.
My solution to a very dark red brick and black fireplace. It's actually very pretty under the curtain, but it just didn't go with the room. The curtain isn't perfect by any means, and I couldn't find a pole to fit close enough to the top, so I should have made a wider hem at the top to let it ruffle out, but this is at least better than before!
That's all for the show, folks. Hope you enjoyed it!
