Savannah's Room

Today is my husband's first day back at work since the baby was born. I'm trying to find a new groove ... one that (so far) hasn't involved a real shower ... lol. This fantastic baby stage doesn't last long enough and I am trying to soak it all up with Jax ... he may be our last little baby. But I wanted to share these pics real quick of Savannah's room ...
Ryan hung up the shelves on the wall for me after I made a floor diagram of it all ... all of the items are things that I've been slowly collecting/re-purposing for her. I took that shelf & mod podge'd on some scrapbook paper. I really like the way that green polka dot background makes everything pop! I filled it up with some dolls on top that were given to her (one from Russia, one from South America and the Hello Kitty doll from China), and put a thrift store find on the bottom. Then I had painted around a basic corkboard and stapled fabric on it to hold some pics for her. My favorite is that shelf for the purses ... I am meaning to paint it, but for now it's up & those purses have a home. We still can't find about half of them though. The bucket is in the closet (it took up too much floor space) holding lots of baby blankets now.
Next up: to frame the ABC sampler & then later this week I want to make the butterfly art work (similar to this) for the other side.


  1. Her room is adorable! Where do you find the energy or time to get all that done! Once again you amaze me!

  2. What a lucky little girl to have such a creative mommy (and daddy). I love that her room is a total grow with me room. It's not too little girly, but still stinking cute.

  3. Savannah's room is fabulous! Lucky girl to have such a talented mama to create such amazing things. The way you are able to find and then repurpose stuff just amazes me. :)

  4. Guess I'll let you know what I think of it when I can pick up my jaw off the floor. . .

    I had no idea it was going to look THAT cute!

  5. Love it!! I can't show Hannah, Savannah's collection of purses, she would be SO jealous :)

  6. I love what you've done with her room. I need to redo my girls room. It's still in the "nursery" theme. (Classic Pooh). They want a princess room, but I want something like Savannah's where it will grow with them. You inspired me!
    P.S. If you go to my blog and find the post with the gift. You can put in your guess as to what my secret project I'm working on is. If you get close than you will win a free "whatever it is".


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
