For some reason all I can think of is redecorating Sakura & Natsuki's bedroom. I know in my brain somewhere that there is too much going this month and that I need to put it off until October if there is going to be any chance of actually completing the project in a reasonable amount of time. You know, so it doesn't drag on for months and months.
BUT, Ikea came out with their 2009 catalogue. Drat.
AND, there's way cute stuff all over it. Double drat.
So all of my good intentions went down the drain and I perused the catalogue for ideas for their room and guess what? I found exactly the inspiration I was looking for. I have been thinking about decorating their room like it's a garden. I'm going to paint the walls a soft yellow and then paint grass and flowers (free hand - yikes!) around the bottom 1/3 of the walls in the play area part (not all the way around the room) but I needed something to bring it together and make it seem garden-y.
Isn't this too cute?! It's frog prince and princess dancing!
This duvet cover is more adorable when you see it in real life. I actually didn't like this just from the picture but when I saw it at Ikea, it was perfect.
These curtains look like a different green but, again, when I saw them at Ikea, they're exactly the same. Also, the bottom seam is unfinished so you can adjust it to any length and it's so long (250cm) that I'll be able to use one set for both windows! Yeah for me!
Last, but not least, is this adorable wall pocket. It's 130cm long so I'm guessing the pockets are really big, which is why I want it. I don't know if you can see but the frog has a crown!
So I talked my husband into going to Ikea on Monday after the girls got home from school to get all of this wonderful stuff before it goes out of stock. Glad I went when I did because the wall pocket was already sold out although they'll get more stock eventually. I was able to get everything else I wanted plus we finally picked out a mirror for Emi and Misaki's room. As soon as I get that up, I'll post pictures of their room.
Now that I have made those purchases, hopefully I'll be able to control myself for the next month! Wish me luck!
