Craftapalooza!!!- Remodel of Bailey's Room

Those of you who know me well know that I LOVE a good bargain. I am one of those annoying people who will spend hours on end making something instead of buying it because I can do it cheaper. My house is stocked with paint pens, hot glue, and thread. I think I could be a very valuable resource on a deserted island. (My husband may disagree with me on this one!)

So, anyway, we've been sprucing up this old house of ours for almost 2 years now- WOW! And I can say that I'm finally finished with yet another room- Bailey's bedroom. When I was pregnant we decided that we would not find out the gender of our baby, so this made decorating a little tricky. Once Bailey was born, I started looking for some girly accent pieces and fabric that could make her room a little more feminine.

So here's the before pictures from the previous owners:

And here's our little Bailey Bug's room now!

And now for a pat on my own back. I have to admit that I've become a crafty blog stalker lately. I love do-it-yourself craft blogs. (Now if I only had the time to make any of this stuff...) So here's my own did-it-myself section. Aside from all the major stuff that David did in the room (replaced flooring, new fan/light fixture, repaired holes in wall, textured and painted walls, etc.) here's my little list. I made all of this myself and it was all so cheap and easy. I know it's nothing fancy, but it's perfect for us!


  1. I'm "moocho" impressed, Holly! Very cute!

  2. super cute! conner invites you over to decorate his room anytime! like the rest of my house it's so bare!

  3. Very cute!! And even better for you doing it yourself!! :)

  4. I made it to your blog! Wow! So, you need to open a store...that has a lot of paint pens. I am with Mindy: you can come to my house anytime with your sewing machine and paint her room.
