…here in Iceland its traditional for babies to sleep in their parents bedrooms, at least for the first few months. So when a good friend of mine asked me for help to create a little haven for their little girl I jumped to the chance.

…we deceided on a neutral color scheme. Just a hint of pink and then simply enjoy the beauty of simple things. We bought a few old, golden frames at the local Goodwill and replaced the back with cork.
…we used small pins to fasten the itsy bitsy teeny weeny cute chlothes in the frame…
…we really wanted to keep the frames in their original gold color. The gold added warmth and character.
…I adore the chair that they already had in the master bedroom. I think its from Pier1…
…I think this is one of the most beautiful coats that I have ever seen, I wonder if they have it in my size?…
…see, even the bear wants it 🙂 …
…this gorgeous coat rack was already in the room – luvs it….
…we used Alvine curtains from Ikea to create the canopy for the bed and hung it on a rod that is supposed to be used outdoors for flowerpots…
…I adore the wall color, so soothing!
…I adore the bed and bedding…
…this small wallshelf was bought at Bauhaus, its the perfect size for the space…
…here you can see the before of the master bedroom:
…and then after:
…here we had placed the canopy but we had yet to style the walls:
…and after everything was put in their right place:
…I adore the lacy curtain canopy and then the lacy book shelves on the wall!
…and talking about the lacy shelves. These are Liksidig napkin holders from Ikea. At just $ 3.95 – you cant beat that price 😉
…we just drilled them to the wall, a very simple solution…
…and I have to say that I adore them! They would also look wonderful in a kitchen for cookbooks!
The entire project cost just over $100
…ohhhh my, look at the shoes…
…we were quite pleased witht the end results…
So do you have a favorite piece?
The lacy shelves?
Making spaces for kids is one of my favorite things.
I think this looks soft and inviting 🙂

I had been longing for a crystal light fixture, as shown in the picture below. The only problem was that I was not willing to pay all the $ and I really wanted a similar light but a table lamp.
So I deceided to make one myself. I had a black lampshade in the garage and a lampbase, both from Ikea..
I used to have a “crystal-chandelier”, also from Ikea (has anyone started to notice a pattern forming regarding a Ikea-adddiction) and after it had served its purpose I saved the crystals to use on a later date.
I deceided this was the later date so I re-arranged my crystals as I wanted them and simply attached them to the lampshade.
I just arranged the crystals as I saw fit and liked.
This was very simple and Im very happy with the end results.
So this little lamp, made on a budget, seems to enjoy his stay on the corner table in my living room
