Molly's Room! Nov 2010

I'm finally ready to reveal the project Sammy and I so lovenly worked on! It took a ton of work!! I bought this tree wall decal off of one of my favorite sites, Etsy.com. The shop I got it from told me their decals stick to textured walls, but as we would soon find out, that wasn't the case. In the midst of me throwing a fit, Sammy told me he would sand the wall and we would paint it a flat color because he said that the glossy paint on the wall wasn't helping much either. 

It took a good week for Sammy to sand the wall, then put this putty crap on the walls and then sand it all down again, prime, and paint. He did the brunt of the work, but I did paint the closet. :) Finally just a few days before our Halloween party we were able to put the decal up! Ohhh my, does it look AMAZING in Molly's room! The end result was definitely worth all the trouble....but really, I know Sammy could have done without all the extra work, lol!

When I ordered the decal, I was able to pick the color of the trunk and pick out two colors for the leafs. If I had known we were going to sand and then repaint her one wall, I would have picked yellow and red for the leafs to look like Fall time. But as it was her walls are orange and I wanted it to stand out. Ahh well, I love the blue and the green and so does little Mols. 

This decal will go a long way in tying in the theme of her room which is slowly, but surely becoming a nature room. This winter Molly's crib will be turned into a toddler bed and for Christmas she gets her new bedding. I LOVE IT! It's from Pottery Barn Kids and it's gorgeous! I love the little birds, trees, and owls on the sheets and quilt.

I made Molly a little jewelry holder thing using a plank of wood, clothes line clips, and hot glue. I hand painted it to match her bedding. I also got her a set of round mirrors and hot glued gems I got at Walmart around the edges to match her bedding.

I went on Etsy.com again and was able to score this awesome hair clip holder! Can you believe someone actually hand painted this? Makes my little painting I did on her jewelry holder look like child's work! lol

Remember that tutu I got for Molly a while back and used to do that photo shoot of her shortly before she turned 1? Well I took the tutu and Sammy used a metal clothes hanger and fandangled  a way to hang it from a hook on her ceiling.

My Mom is getting Molly a dark brown bean bag chair that I will put at the end of her bed and at the base of the tree. Other than some other odds and ends like shelving and curtains to hang for her closet door, I feel like her room will mostly be complete!

With love,

  1. I love everything! The theme is awesome! Not sure I could pull it off in a boys room? I love the tutu and your painting is way better than anything I could do! Love it all! Her bedding is precious too!! I might try the mirrors, sounds easy and it looks like you bought them that way, too cute!! I bet all that was hard work, but way worth it!!

  3. Thanks, Mandy!! Yes you can!!!! I found tons and tons of wall decals that would be perfect for a boys room! I actually want to get Anthony and wall decal of a pine tree, but not sure I want to do all the work. :) I'm excited to give her the bedding for Christmas to finish typing her room together.

    Thanks, Brianne! I actually got the idea of the jewelry hanger from something I saw in the Pottery Barn Kids magazine, lol.

  4. Looks like a child's dream to me Becca. Molly and Anthony are so fortunate to have parents like you and Sam.

  5. Very Very Sweet! So cute! I love the owl you painted too. I think you should just go for it and PAINT the pine tree for Anthony's room too!! Great Job! It's nice because it's a theme she can have for awhile to come, not grow out of it. Versatile too! I really like it.

  6. Hahaha, it was tedious work painting her jewelry holder. Painting the pine tree in Anthony's room is what Sammy said too. Hmmm....maybe, just maybe!
