MilShelb's Room Part 2

After I painted the room yellow, I knew I wanted to add pink accents- the MilShelb are girls, after all. 

So, first I put pink polka dots on the wall where their book and toy shelves are.

I painted the closet doors... again with getting rid of the brown! I also painted the door knobs a super cute pink which matches the polka dots on the wall.

Milly and Shelby were the first to get new blinds in our home. We bought fresh new white blinds and I now want to change all of the blinds in our house. Our blinds in the other rooms are off-white and gross.

I got pink with white polka dot curtains from Walmart. They were so cute and when I saw them in the store I knew they were exactly what I was looking for!

We bought Shelby a turtle sand box and put a fluffy pillow in it for her. We call it her "turtle bed" and she loves it!

This is the wall with the polka dots, but now you can see the shelves. They are actually shoe shelves from Walmart but they were exactly what the girls need because they are low to the ground, just like the MilShelb.

For decorating I was trying not to break the bank. I went to Goodwill (which I do often in search of treasures to fix up and have fun with). I got the picture frames for about $1.00 each and the cute shelf for $2.00. 

Here is the shelf before I painted the whole thing. The bunnies were cute, but Milly and Shelby needed something colorful!

I painted it pink and green and put M.S. on it which is short for MilShelb, of course!

Here is their shelf with some of their toys (yes, only some. These kids have more toys than a lot of  2-legged kids I know).

Here is a view of the painted trim. I love how it brightened up the room!

This is a picture of one wall in their room. I put quotes and some pictures of them. The fabric boards are just old sheets or pillow cases cut out and hot glued on to card board. 
I painted the canvas in the middle with a quote the MilShelb Dad picked from Yertle the Turtle that says, "And the turtles, of course, the turtles are free as turtles, and maybe, all creatures should be."

Milly and Shelby loved their new room! It was their Christmas gift and they were very excited! They actually use it more than I really thought they would.
