Re-doing daughters room…In the making.

This is one of those promises from last Christmas…

A room re-do.

She found the note…under her bed while she was cleaning last week. Dayum.

I’m being held to the promise.

Started this weekend.

Walls painted Benjamin Moore cloud white ~ Check

New curtains…bamboo blinds for underneath need to go up too~ Check

New linens…working on it.

slipcover loveseat…yep working on…

Rugs…

or maybe more along these lines…

StripeRug

Do you guys notice that when you look up a rug or something on Overstock.com it seems to follow you all over the internet...little ads reminding you what you looked at...

like those creepy eyes that follow you in a painting?

Will do something with the dresser…

There are even folks that will turn your ribbons into Quilts and bags and picture frames!

Eeegads. Who knew?

I dunno.

The favorite thing I have heard is donating them to Special Equestrians or another Equine

Therapy program.

Where they re-use/ re-gift them.

LOVE this.

Sold.

**I will post some finished pics of the room…when it is done.

Don’t be holding your breath or anything…

Love. Donating them seems so perfect, and what a sweet and generous thing to do.
Looking forward to the reveal, but I promise not to hold my breath since I know a thing or two about how lonnnnng it takes to get things done;)
Big hug to your daughter for donating her ribbons.

What a great idea! My daughter's ribbons are just stuffed in a box - donating them makes so much more sense.

I love what has been done with the room so far, and I can't wait to see the end result...just don't make us wait too too long for the finale.
Donating the ribbons seems like a great idea. Your daughter may want to hang on to the special ones for keepsakes.

i like the wall hanging idea.

Marion@Life Tastes Good said...

OMgosh so many ribbons! But you have lots of good ideas - thanks for the plug :o). The pics look great - can't wait to see more!! and, yep, I have some Overstock things following me around everywhere!! creeeepppyyyy

Aw that last picture had me teary eyed. And the horse made out of ribbons is genius. I say make those horses and donate them that would be the best of both worlds!
Looking forward to seeing the room in all it`s glory!

Everything is perfect. Your daughter is so brilliant as she has a lot of ribbons and badges.

The room is looking good. I love the ribbons en mass on the mirror, or in a stunning frame. Donating them is a good idea as well, if your daughter is willing to part with them.

Deborah said...

Oh lovely! Regarding the ribbons, I saw on the Antiques Roadshow an old men's jacket that the wife had made completely out of the ribbons that used to come on cigar boxes and it was awesome!! **happy smiles** Deb

Renée Finberg said...

oh yessssss..............
the ribbons!!!!

donating sounds good.
keep all the 'grand champion' ribbons.

Stephanie said...

I can't think of a better way for your talented daughter to handle the overflow of ribbons!!

we have a little stash collecting dust...I am going to look into this.

Melissa said...

Gorgeous room. Lucky girl! And what a dilemma to do with all the ribbons. I still have every single ribbon I ever won (with the horse's name, date, judge and the big-name people I beat [!!] written on the back). ;) They are all in boxes somewhere at my mom's house. I've never known what to do with them and didn't have the heart to throw them away. I love the idea of donating them. If only I could get my mom to agree to let them go...

My friend used to hang them around the top of her wall - like crown molding - they looked really good!
