Almost there!

Here is our  tiny guest bedroom (once Maddy's) almost complete!

I started out with my 10.00 table,

Maddy's unused Target lamp,

Vintage looking clock from Wal Mart and

a small plant from Lowes.

I then made a fabric headboard (that took about 30 minutes).

More on that later.

And found the cutest bedding ever at Kohls!

I needed art.

Nothing too busy but fun.

Can letters be fun?  I think so..

This is what I came up with.

I lived with it for a day and just knew it was missing something.

Pops of color?

I can do that!

So I painted one of my #1 sellers

"Every little thing is gonna be alright".

And that silver mirror turned Navy.

It was starting to get there... little by little.

I removed the red from my plank DIY mirror and that helped a lot!

But it was still missing some whimsy.


How bout another sign?

That did it!!!

At first I was afraid it was too much.

Then I reminded myself that small rooms need BIG personalities.  :)

Oh ....



It came together...

I did keep the old granny chenille blanket. LOL

I'm hunting now for a navy rug and curtains.

If you have a good source I would love to hear it.

So can small rooms go BIG?

I think so!

I smile every time I pass it.

What would really make me smile is filling it with family.

Much love, Susie


  1. Looks like a room I would want to stay in! Great job! Love the signs! By the way...we sell navy rugs. You could get it custom with a border or design inlay or just solid. Just email me if you are interested. I'll give you a deal!


  2. Oh I love it. Such happy colors and the signs are just perfect. Love that slat mirror too. How fun is that. Beautifully done. Hugs, Marty

  3. It's beautiful! I hope you don't care, but I just "pinned" your room so I don't forget about your "H" sign. I think I may need that in the near future.

  4. You did a great job! I just love those pops of green. The signs are awesome!! Is it wrong that my favorite part of the room is the "old granny chenille blanket" :-)

  5. Love the room, love the colors and just love the pillows on the bed! And the headboard and the striped "H" and the sweet dreams sign.....well...I love everything about it!!

  6. You are amazing! Add a tall pop of something gray or whatever to the left of the green sign and table and that wall will be balanced out :) It's LOVELY, just all the wall stuff seems to be more to the right..
    Please don't hate me ( I duck my head..) lol!!

  21. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Red Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist. Lubov, a former dancer, is a big fan of movement, so for her that signals the fringe-trimmed bandage dress.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
