We found some seagrass baskets and a seagrass drawer unit (at Jysk) for her nightstand. Mom arranged some of the shells and other things in the baskets for her headboard on her bed:
The little strand of mini lights (which was 1.97 at Jysk!) lights up and looks fantastic at night:Mom created Renee her own personal "beach" with sand, shells, a candle (for decorative purposes only!!) and some other treasures. I think I am going to tuck a little framed pic of her on the beach inside the glass:We found white ceramic ornaments (again, at Jysk) that we hung on the wall beside the window. They are quite large and fit perfectly.I love this -- it's a fisherman's net from Michael's (40% off coupon!). We hung it using 3M command hooks and just draped it in the corner. Then we tucked a variety of seashells inside. I think I might do some more arranging. It doesn't look quite the way I want it to...but that's the beauty of hanging with hooks...I can rearrange it until it looks exactly like I want it to.This is the print that started it all...I kind of knew what I wanted, but when I found this print at Micheal's (40% off coupon!) I knew I could pick all the colours from the print and have something that is reminiscent of the ocean. The quote on the bottom says "...to each his own personal paradise..." which is exactly how I want the room to feel for Renee. The frame is plain wood, painted and crackled using white and sandy-brown. It looks all weathered and wonderful, and it is hanging right above Renee's bed.Mom altered a wooden paddle for her door...of course, we couldn't hang it because she'd see. But I plan to hang it on the outside of her door after she sees the room. This is amazing...it has real shells and sand on it -- just lovely!So here's a bigger view of the room right now...it needs a few finishing touches and one more larger project, but we are almost there!Of course, Mom and I had a ton of help today...just look at this hard-working supervisor! LOLWell...until tomorrow -- thanks for looking!
