girls HQ

Girls HQ is almost complete..
There are a few little things that I still want to do but on the whole it's done.

Mid Saturday morning pajama play session I have managed to take some snaps to share..
I have put this room together using everything that we already had..
The only "new addition" is the blackboard..
Mr Right and his cordless drill, a piece of MDF - standard size, so no need for cutting, and a tin of blackboard paint and a little motivation is all it took...
The girls and their friends are loving it and it is well used by them and ME! 
It's really handy for subliminal messages and job lists...

Sweetness corner...
Prints were gifts and fairy cross stitch was a special gift too.
Dolls house was spotted at a friends house in the "donate" pile..
Needless to say my heart skipped a beat, a small exchange and she was ours..
Thanks miss Julie x
Now well loved and well used..

Dolly corner..
Little table handmade by my grandfather and little vintage kinda chair picked up by my mum

$5 dolls house kit from Cotton on Kids...
Couldn't believe my luck
then quickly realised there was a very valid reason why they were heavily reduced to $5...
Two five dollar dolls houses = at least 3 hours work...

But i love them sooooooooo...

girly friends....

the "unfinished"  reading corner...
Such an amazingly beautiful spot to curl up with a book..
It currently has - a lovely old wingback chair picked up from my favourite op shop, draped in a sheet - for now... Still deciding whether i cover her myself or just leave it to a professional..
Also have a few other little ideas for his spot.

This chair is almost the identical shape...
Maybe a little brave for my first upholstery attempt...
but i can see it now...

until I'm brave enough....this is how she sits...

Blackboard love

under my feet as I snapped...
Blissful Saturday morning..
Play and pajamas...

 followed by berries and pancakes..
Oh how we love the weekend..

Big girls and small are drawn to this room...
 I have soo many big & little girls comment that it their favorite room in the house..
It is probably one of the only rooms "almost finished"... Perhaps that's why..
The girls have the tv and Wii in there too...
But i tend to hear more singing, voice impersonations, music, thumping from dancing and tiffs coming from this room...

So this room works...
The girls and their friends love it
It cost next to nothing to style
It is tucked away down the "girls" end of the house - so i never have to worry about cleaning and fluffing it before guests..It has a sliding door that is in regular use...

Enjoy your weekend :)
Oh and news flash - I have (another) new addiction....
Instagram.. I have always loved but as my personality would have it, I am now well and truly hooked - line and sinker...
Come find me at Melissa@whiteverandah....
