I even bought all the bedding from Land of Nod and was all set until I bought the Mary McDonald book and I saw this...

I was obsessed with the navy and hot pink as soon as I laid eyes on this picture! So, a whole new scheme came into my mind and I went with it!
Here's what I have as of right now (it is definitely in the beginning phases, so be kind! And also please ignore the toys!Oh and the bed rails...I guess I am really keeping it real and not getting all that out of the shot!)--
My husband and I made the upholstered headboard over a weekend and everyone was right when I blogged about building or buying a headboard, building one really wasn't all that hard and wasn't too expensive! All it took was plywood, foam, batting, and a few yards of fabric. The fabric was the most expensive thing we bought for it, only because I knew exactly what I wanted. I bought 3 yards of Robert Allen "Jaden" in the Ink colorway. It's a cotton blend and has a linen-like appearance. I am still in search of a pink & white graphic fabric to make a large sham for her bead. I am also planning on using the extra navy fabric we have to make a bolster with pink Greek Key trim. I also need to add some valances over her windows to dress it up a bit.
While bumming around the other day, I found this cute painting for over her dresser! The colors are right and she always talks about New York City and going there just like her mommy does :)
