Roomspiration Recap

Aubrey at All Things Bright and Beautiful picked Cami's room as one of her top favorites for the Roomspiration blog hop and link party.  If you haven't visited Aubrey's blog, she has an eye for on trend high style and her blog is filled with visual delights.  Go check out the other fabulous kid's rooms she highlighted.  I'm always amazed by the creativity and vision out in blog land.

If your are a regular follower you've probably seen Cami's room.  It took me a couple months to finish.  If you didn't see Cami's room reveal it was an 11 year old birthday present to her.  She loves horses, reading, and art so I wanted to give her a vibrant room to get her creative juices flowing.  It needed to be a little sophisticated because Cami is starting Middle School next year.  If you click on the link above you can see how I completed all the projects in her room on a very small budget.



A place for all her books and a large desk to do homework and draw at.


To see how I made this light using an old 70's light fixture and metal hanging plant cages go here.   Mandi from Vintage Revival was a guest judge at a link party I entered this chandelier in and she liked it so much she used my tutorial to create one for a client.  Her huge following took notice and I'm seeing more and more of them out in blog land. 
I'm always happy to help people make something beautiful for not much cash.


 I made the jewelry organizer from found beach driftwood and plastic toy horses.


The biggest most time consuming part of the project was refinishing and painting the concrete floors.


I took this picture from the top of a ladder.  It's a small room and I had trouble getting good shots.



I blog what I love doing and what I've always been doing.  I would be doing things like this even if no one noticed, but I can't lie, it feels nice when my little blog gets noticed every once in awhile.

Stay tuned for my first give away in honor of my little blog reaching 150 followers. 
Woohoo!

Thanks for checking it out.
