This is what my back yard looked like a year ago in January...

Hello ladies. I don't think there are any men reading my blog so, hello ladies. I have been busy changing some things in Taylor and Hannah's room. Yes, they are in the same room now, well they have been since the summer. So now I have a guest room, so come visit me anytime!
Here is the blog post of what her room looked like before. The beginning is Taylor's old room (the new guest room). The second half is Hannah's room, there isn't really that much of a difference so don't get too excited.
Here is the fabric I saw on Fabric.com that inspired me.
So I bought a whole bunch of fabric to make quilts for their beds, to make pillow cases, and to put on the back of the bookcases.
I changed one of her bookcases into a dress up closet. I got the idea from Pinterest. She loves to dress up so this was perfect for her. The baskets have hair bows and headbands, necklaces, bracelets, shoes and any other dress up accessories. The picture on the shelf is of Hannah wearing a Snow White dress meeting the real Snow White in Disneyland, it is an adorable picture. I used some extra fabric to put over a bulletin board. And she loves the mirror to check out how she looks. This dress up closet does not usually look like this, it's usually super messy, believe me.
I spray painted these gold frames with white glossy Krylon. They turned out really nice.
I put some fabric in the back of the shelf and the dress up closet. I love this look. It is super easy to do too. The frame with the happy face is a frame for the girls artwork. Hannah did the happy face, and she is very proud of it.
Joe and I stained this corner shelf in the summer. It looks way better than it did before!
Then I started working on the quilts with the help of Andrea Barnes. Thanks so much Andy for helping me! She explained step by step how to make this. She even came over one night for a few hours, brought me a slurpee, ironed, and helped put it together. This is what one of them looked like once it was all sewn together.
After many hours of sewing, this is the finished product.
I didn't get a picture of the back side, but it is super soft grey minky.
The girls love their new quilts.
I still have some more work to do, and some more accessories I need to find. But this is the update for now!
