Inspiration for my "girl" room

Since we don't have children yet, and are planning to wait a couple more years, we have found other uses for the extra bedrooms in our new house! Daryl will have an office and I will have a craft room/library that will also serve as a guest bedroom. We are actually sleeping in my future room right now, but since we are planning on moving into our master bedroom next week I have started making plans! Here's some of the pics I'm inspired by...

Can you tell I'm hoping for easy conversion to a room for
a little girl at some point in the future?

My mother-in-law gave me this book for Christmas and I have gotten a lot of good ideas.

I don't love the colors of this pillow, but I'm seeing a new project in my future!

Again, I'm not in love with the colors, or the plaid really, but I love what they did with the knobs. I'm not sure if you can tell in the pic, but they're each covered with a piece of fabric and tied with a ribbon.

This might be my favorite idea, netting or some kind of sheer fabric gathered and tied on the wall below a chair rail. I never really liked chair rails before, but I think they're growing on me!

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Daryl, my brother Bryant, and I are heading to Birmingham for my littlest sisters 1st birthday

Our House (Before)

We've been living in our new house for about four months now. In that time we've had so many wonderful work days and Daryl and his dad have gotten so much done. Here's some pictures we took before we moved in, and tomorrow i'll post some pictures of the renovations. Prepare to be amazed!
