Planter Bed CrownWhen I was a little girl I had big dreams. I was going to dress like Madonna, marry Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran, and live in my parent's living room with my 6 children. None of that happened. However, the nice thing about being a parent is living vicariously through your children and gosh darn it, I'm going to do it as much as I can, hence Molly's ballet lessons (more guilt, Mom). Another dream of mine was to see in a bed that looked like this
I made hers out of a planter which I spray painted and turned upside down. I'll post a tutorial another day. But she loves it. I would have chosen different trims but she wanted a hot pink room which I nixed so the hot pink ribbon on the crown was a concession on my part. The ball fringe matches her curtains which also have ball fringe.
It was so hard to take a picture that truly reflects the color of the hot pink ribbon but still be able to see the pink tulle against the pink wall. Hope you get the idea, though! And that tulle is the same tulle my mother used to swathe around Molly's bassinet when she was born. It makes me happy to see it reused!
