Over the weekend we had a lot of beautification going on.
We can start with Maddy's room makeover.
After we found her chair, it made the decorating smooth sailing.
We were able to find some matching goodies along the way.
Like these storage boxes!
Not only did they match her chair but they fit the space perfect.
Her old baskets now hold her shoes in her closet.
She has concrete floors in this room.
They worked perfect for Jesse growing up but Maddy...brrr cold.
So we found this awesome rug.
It's 100% wool and oh so fluffy!
I like how it turns a formal chair and cold floors into an inviting fun space.
We didn't do much with her dresser. It just worked.
Love when that happens.
We did add a place mat on top to dress it up a bit.
The fun green lamp is from Target.
Maddy wanted different signs for this room but loved the saying from her old one.
So here it is in a new form.
FUN and whimsey
They took forever to paint. But Fun!
Her chanddie moved rooms too.
That was a must have in her book. LOL
Her curtains are from World Market as well.
They are silk and a bit thin.
I'm thinking about lining them soon.
She is having to get used to the morning sun peeping in.
Thank goodness she has the next three days off from School.
Living so close to New Orleans, our state shuts down for Mardi Gras.
Last Friday her school held a Mardi Gras Ball.
Middle School?...I know right.
We just used it as an excuse to get her hair done and get all dressed up.
What girl doesn't like to play dress up and feel pretty?
They really go all out for these Balls.
Maddy is still too young to "date" but she sure enjoys the dress up part.
She met up with three of her best girl friends and had a Ball...LOL
After the dance we picked the girls up and went to a new steak house in town.
They later ended up having a mini slumber party.
Her Dadddy and I are still having a hard time watching her grow up.
Knowing she is our last, it sure tugs at our heart. BIG TIME.
That's about all we do for Mardi Gras in our house.
I'm finding the parades are just getting too dangerous.
So for the next three days I'm painting and she is attending a horse camp.
What are you up to these days?
