A work in progress--- and a FREEBIE

I am obviously not a professional blogger since I haven't updated in forever...cough... October 31... cough. But, I am back with another free printable for Valentine's day. I can not say this is an original idea, as I have seen it on pinterest here and there. Moment of honesty... my oldest daughter's room has been a work in progress since we purchased our home a couple of years ago. I was 7 months pregnant so the nursery took priority since it was a currently unoccupied room. I love how it turned out (you can see a couple of pictures here), but by the time the baby came and we got our house in livable condition--- it was a foreclosure--- bedrooms kind of fell off of the radar.

Here are a few pictures of rooms that are my inspiration for Ry's room makeover.

Aren't they perfect?? I love the gallery walls and the ruffled bedding. Here is where I get more embarassed. I have had fabric purchased and laying in piles for MONTHS to make a ruffled throw. Ya, it isn't anywhere near finished. And I have a weird collection of frames in the top of the closet that are all empty. Every time I get them out and do a mock-up of the lay out, I end up thinking "I need to buy xyz" "I really should make abc for this one". My Mom recently purchased a chandelier for her room. I am pleased to say it did end up installed a mere two days after purchase! This brings me to my point--- a free Valentine's Day printable. I plan to stick it in one of the cute frames that will maybe someday go on a fabulous gallery wall. Fun fact: Rylie was born on Valentine's Day so it is only appropriate. Maybe you can put it on your mantle or give it to a teacher. It is so cute I am sure you can find a place for it!

And check back in to see progress of the room that may or may not be finished before she moves out. Here are a few (bad quality-don't judge because I am crafty NOT a photog) pictures of projects that have actually been completed for her room. 

See?!?!? INSTALLED chandelier! I wish I had a before pic here because you could fully appreciate the change. Picture with me now dirty white ceiling fan from 1991. Now you get it, right? 

This^^^ one of my favorites. You should see it in action. It is a lighted marquee that has several different light settings making a really fun display item. Our house has weird coves built into two of the bedrooms. I hate them because its just another forgotten place to dust. But, now hers has a purpose!

And finally, a ruffled bolster pillow. These are the fabrics I am (eventually) using for the ruffled throw at the foot of the bed. It will be so cute when it is finished. Thanks for reading along and enjoy the printable!!

**UPDATE** I wanted to show a pic of the wall in progress and say that I attached 2 ruffles today. Maybe I will have the room done by June... maybe!
