Girly, sparkly, shininess

I got done with yet another project. I know there has been project craziness around here, but its better than me sitting around twittling my thumbs AND sometimes I just don't feel like doing the dishes. :) Okay, so here's the latest and I am loving how it turned out.

This is above Ailey's crib. I want to put a picture or something on the wall in between the curtains....that'll be for later, though. ;)

The metal frame is actually a pot hanger that we have had since we were first married. It was a hammered gray and black metal color and I spray painted it cream. The curtains are also from the same era and I just split one in half, made loops out of ribbon and sewed a border on.

These hooks are from Hobby Lobby and I got them in the clearance aisle for $1 a piece. (I got 3 of them, so I have another one to do something with... ) They were black, so I spray painted them the same cream color. I made the bows on the pot hanger and tie hooks using my gained knowledge from the handy dandy youtube videos courtesy of hair-hardware.

I think I might be having more fun and enjoyment with all the girly stuff than Ailey is at this point. It will definitely be interesting to see what kind of style emerges as she gets older. Just so you know, she does like it. She's also very attracted to pinks and purples, though she's just fine with blues, greens, yellows...etc. We'll see.

Remember my egg tree? I did say that I intended to find some sort of ornamental hangy things to put on it for after Easter so that it would be part of Ailey's room decor. Well, I couldn't leave well enough alone and I got to makin' some myself.

Here's what I've done so far. I also want to make an angel, but during the process of making these, Braden asked if I could make him and Zekey some. So, I decided to get another tree and I'm in the process of doing a space-themed one. :) Boys like shiny and sparkly, too, just as long as its boyish! I'll post pics of it when I get it done.

Here are some close ups of them.
