Several weeks ago, Mrs. Noot found this crown for me on one of her shopping sprees. She knew I was looking for something like it to hang over Olivia’s bed.
Of course it had to get a little brighter to match the girls’ room!
It took me a while, but I finally got around to finishing it! Here it is painted, scuffed a little, then hung over Olivia’s bed.
I had an extra picture which I was still wondering where to hang. For now, it seems just right on the wall behind the bed.
Olivia is thrilled with her special new space. And she tried several poses for me while I took a few pictures of the crown and lace panels.
Reading under it…
Sleeping (?) under it…
I thought it might be kind of neat to have the gold show through in places under the white, so I used a piece of sand paper and gently rubbed the raised places.
Mrs. Noot generously gave me a long lace panel she thought would look good with the crown. So I cut it into two pieces, serged the cut ends, stitched ribbons about every 6 inches or so across the ends, and tied the ribbons to the frame of the crown.
I realized I haven’t shown pictures of the girls’ room for a while, so I thought you might enjoy seeing what we’re doing there, little bit by little bit.
See you soon!
