                                                                   AMELIA'S NEAPOLITAN FLOWER ROOM
I finally have Amelia's room ready!  I hope she loves it as much as I do!  Although she will be less than two years old when she finally comes home from China, we decided to make the crib into a toddler bed, kind of like a day-bed.  There's a good chance she wont be sleeping in it for a while because I plan to have her sleep in our room/bed for as long as she wants.  This will promote bonding.  Anyway, I've been dreaming about a little girl's room for a long time now.  Thanks to inspiration from the "Decorate My Home Series" of my favorite craft blog, Make It Love It, this room is finally a reality!  The only thing I didn't make was the sheet on the bed.  It's amazing how $100 worth of fabric, $50 for paint, and around $30 for other random supplies can decorate a whole room!  I should also put out the disclaimer that the actual room isn't quite so "pink".  Unfortunately these pictures don't give the room true justice.
This is a pull-shade I sewed fabric on.  Aaron made the valance out of wood and I attached batting and fabric to it with a staple gun.

"Make It Love It" inspired!

More "Make It Love It" inspiration!

Aaron's mom is making a quilt with the same fabric, so I will probably hang that on the quilt rack and the name blanket I made will go on her bed.  Love that nubby "popcorn" fleece!  This is the comfiest blanket ever!

I made the bed skirt by using the pieces of an old crib skirt as pattern pieces.  The pillows were created with another "Make It Love It" tutorial!  (can you tell I LOVE that blog)!

I can't wait to fill this up with clips.  Hopefully it's full in the next few months by the time she comes home.

Yep, those fabric panels, the lamp, and the hair clip holder are "Make It Love It"!
