Decorating with Owls for a Little Girls Room

Sep 12th, 2012
Did ya’all have a great day yesterday!?! Well, Creed {my youngest} dumped maple syrup on my carpet! Good times. Good times. So, needless to say I didn’t get to write the post that I intended to. Ummmm yeah. Moving on…  

One of the best parts of my life is when I get to help someone decorate a room in their home. My friend Dani {who I love dearly} let me help here and there with the decisions for her daughter Abby’s room. It was such a fun process and Dani did all the work herself! She even made the pallet bookshelves by herself {that’s right girls, from start to finish}. She would call Mr. All Things Thrifty here and there and ask for advice and to borrow a power tool, but I was so proud of her.

We designed this whimsical window for the focal point of the room, and we decorated the entire room around owls. Isn’t it darling!? You guessed it peeps, we made the window with our trusty Silhouette CAMEO machine. I’m telling ya, that bad boy gets whipped out at least once or twice a week around here. Start saving up because it was really worth your money. I bet they will have a black Friday promotion coming up in November too!

Dani’s daughter Abby chose which owls would represent each person in her family and we created a fun tree branch for them to sit on.

The owl choices were very fitting! Daddy, Mommy, Abby, Chase and Mason are represented perfectly! I’ve posted about Abby’s little brother Chase before. He has leukemia and is doing GREAT!
The great thing about having a Silhouette CAMEO, is that you can choose images from their image store and buy them for $1.00. You don’t need an expensive cartridge. I love that!

Dani picked out the stripy owl bedding at our local HomeGoods store. Our HomeGoods/TJMaxx is my all time favorite shopping spot in town. I don’t often find something I want anywhere else, but I do live in a pretty small city. HomeGoods pillows
We got the tutorial for making the pallet bookshelves from Little Lucy Lu! Dani did a great job! pallet bookshelvesNicole and Justins House 114
Overall these pictures really don’t do this room justice. It is really cute! It reminds me of Creed’s nursery when we used owls in windows above his crib!
