Thread and Paint

Here are a few projects I got done this summer. Not as much sewing as I would have liked, but I finally did finish these two sets for Kalla before it got cold! The dress will at least go through the fall with a pair of leggings and a long sleeve tee. Kalla loves to wear both of these.

As far as painting here are my completed parts! I am almost done painting our bedroom green and I painted a faux headboard for our monsterous king sized bed. I got the idea from The summer issue of Blueprint magazine. The template for the shape is on Martha's website. I bought the large paisley stencil from Hobby Lobby.
Here is Kalla's room. It is very pink...as in pepto pink! I used an old mirror that I had no place to put and FIL bolted it to the wall for a dress up/dance mirror. She got the whole shabby chic bedding set for her birthday and I bought an extra sheet set to make bubble style valance and bedding for her doll bed.Here is the other side. Still a little plain, but I plan to add details later.
Now here is the kids bathroom. There was so much wall I just didn't know what to do. So I painted giant monkeys on them! One for each kid.
And then I hung banana valance on the window.Here is the other wall with the Maressa monkey. :)
The kids love the monkeys. That's it for now. Have TONS more painting to do in the house. Maybe it will get done eventually!

Love the Monkeys on the wall. What a creative and cute idea!

Oh and the faux headboard - neat! I looked for the the link to that on Martha's site but didn't find it. I'd like to do something like that in our guest room.
