New Girl's Bedroom Canopy

Happy New Year, all! It's been awhile, eh? :-) I took a short blogging sabbatical to focus on family and friends over the holidays. I had a wonderful break and hope you did, too! One thing I worked on was giving my daughter's bedroom a little perking up:
I've always loved bedroom crown canopies and in the back of my mind always thought I'd make one some day for my little princess. Well ... time is short so I did the next best thing - I visited Etsy! I found this terrific handmade wood canopy in the colors I wanted for a very reasonable price including the netting sheers:
The style is classic and we all love it! Next I rearranged the rest of her wall decor. Since she still wanted to keep her "baby pop art" prints I made for over her crib when she was born (and I did, too!) I mixed them with two of her round decorations for a new ensemble on a side wall. See my tutorial post on how to make your own wall art from your children's photos.
So, yes, my daughter's bedroom has builder taupe walls. Without re-painting, I combat the color with bold, deep fuschia accents in the decor: wall art, silk curtains, book & toy baskets, sheets, toys etc. She's so excited about her fresh new look and I'm excited to have one new year's goal scratched off my list!
