So, about 6 weeks ago, Sarah Jane told me that she thought that she had a baby room. She told me that she has been thinking about re-doing her room. Haha, with what money, right?
I try really hard to encourage her to have her own taste and her own style and in all honesty... her room is HER room. Not mine. So this is what I said.
I said Sarah Jane, I need you to think about how you would want to decorate your room. If we can come to an agreement, then we can re-do it.
After that, I didn't hear much about it for about 2 weeks. Then one day, out of the blue, she prances into the living room and yells... PINK and BROWN! I just looked at her like, what are you talking about, girl? And she goes, my room... I want to do it in pink and brown. I think that this all stemmed from a dress that I made for her a while back that she really liked:
(if you like this dress, you need to keep a look out for it on Dana's Blog... she'll be giving one away soon!)
SO... thinking that it was a passing phase, I just shrugged it off... I told her to think about that for a while and look around a little and see if that is what she reall wanted. She has not changed her mind. She talks about it every day.
SO, here I am... on a quest for pink and brown. I usually buy the bedding in a room first, then go from there on the walls... I am having SUCH a hard time on this. I am not a HUGE pink and brown fan...If it were me, we'd buy this and be done with it:
But it is not just me... and she definitely has a mind of her own.
I have SCOURED the internet trying to find a cute bedding set in Pink and Brown and haven't had the best luck (read: I really am not a pink and brown fan)... Everything that I find that I just love, doesn't just love my checkbook.
So, here are some budget friendly finds that I have come across. All of these are less than $100 for the whole set!
Which one would you pick for your 5 (almost 6) year old??
The ebay auction ends on all three of these in less than 24 hours, so if you're visiting from fb-- leave me a comment over there please!!, and if you're a blogger... leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
I added the monogram, b/c this is what it would look like in her room. SJ only has one window in her room and this comes with the sham, comforter, dustruffle, and valance...
I really like this one, but George thinks that it looks like an Old Lady... SJ likes the bows. It comes with the same stuff as the one up top. (that trim is chenelle -- sp?)
This one I really like, but she has sort of off-white furniture, how would that look?
Here is her furniture that she has in her room if that helps you picture it:
