This purple and white birdhouse has been a fixture in my daughter's room since before she was born. It originally decorated her nursery in our previous home and made the move here when we bought this house 3 1/2 years ago.
It is purple and white. I mean - IT WAS purple and white. Afton has always had the sunniest room in the house and I guess all of that exposure has faded the purple to a dingy grey.
Time for a makeover!!
I taped off some sections and hit it with pale pink spray paint. When this was dry, I re-taped it and hand painted some of the accents with a metallic rose paint.
Looking so much better already!!
Here is Afton's tall-boy dresser. It's painted "Raspberry Lemonade" by Behr. Perfect with her "Lavender Ice" walls. (Don't you just love paint colour names??)
The newly painted birdhouse calls for a new vignette in this area of her room.
I recently picked up this doily at a thrift shop - a good place to start I think. (I added some braided trim to the bottom of the birdhouse - I didn't like how the 2 paint colours bled together. This cleans the lines up a bit and adds some texture.)
After 1/2 hour of puttering and gathering, I came up with THIS for the area atop her dresser:
These pansy plates have been around a long time, too. Original nursery decor as well. They had never made it up on the wall here though. My daughter couldn't have been more pleased to see them again!
Aren't they lovely??
How about some lovely lavender, too?? Another texture and a touch of the south of France - what else could a girl ask for??
Thanks for stopping by.......
