There is progress in the girls' room, and I *think* I can see the end!
My vision is definitely coming together and it is more than I could have ever imagined.
The aubergine floral duvet covers, white matelasse coverlets and chandelier have arrived. The chandelier is gorgeous, but came in about a million pieces. I am still working on putting it together and wiring it up.
I was planning on using old doors for headboards, but since I use doors for everything, and so many other people also use them as headboards, I went a different direction. I found two complete twin bed sets at my local Habitat Restore really inexpensively which I am painting today. Also on the *to paint* list today are a desk and chest, then the furniture painting will be done and I can start getting everything back in the room.
Then, of course, the fun part will be putting it all together and seeing the worst room in the house turned into a fancy French boudoir for the girls:-)
This process, although pretty stressful, has been an amazing experience for me. I grew up with white French provincial furniture that my grandmother, Isabelle, painted for me. She LOVED that style. I feel like I'm coming full circle seeing my vision of the same thing come together for my own girls -- especially since several pieces of her furniture are in the room.
She would love this room. How I wish she were here to see it:-)
