When I picture the windows open in a room, I imagine warm sunshine streaming through as the wind gently blows the curtains. Fresh air hits me and I am compelled to take a deep breath. The refreshing energy fills my soul. Of course there are only certain seasons when it's practical to open the windows, but my goal is to fill my heart, home, and family with a beautiful serenity that always makes me think the windows are open!

Little Girl’s Room Wall Art and Reveal

Okay, so now that I’ve finished the painting, trimming, stenciling, and curtains in my little girl room,  I’ll show you some simple wall decor I did.  Then, I’ll do a quick room reveal from start to finish.  I love the peacefulness of the lavender colors in this room.  To be honest, some days when the little ones are napping, I go sit in there and just enjoy the serenity.

On the walls I wanted to put verses from Proverbs 31 to  inspire my daughters to be kind, loving and God-centered women.  But when I priced custom vinyl lettering… OUCH!  I could MAYBE afford one, but not all eight that I wanted to do.

Here’s my creative and much MUCH cheaper solution.  For under $15 I purchased a package of 10 clear, full sheet labels from Amazon.

They work in an inkjet printer, so I picked my favorite font,  Pavane, and designed my verses to fit on an 8.5 X 11 inch paper which I then cut out.  Here’s the end result.



I ended up printing 7 of them.  The last one I printed on Sew-In Computer Printer Fabric that I got at Jo-Ann’s a while back.

With a coupon, it was less then a dollar per fabric sheet.  Then I sewed the fabric sheet into a pillow.


And now to reveal the room redo from start to finish…. Drum roll please…

And last, the completed room:  Bible versus on the wall. Furniture moved back in place (I would LOVE new furniture, but alas, that’s not in the budget);  My favorite quilt and pillows on the bed (I made these years ago).  When my little one is ready to come out of the crib, we’ll put rails on the bed and move her in.  Until then, Grandma and Grandpa still have a place to sleep.   :o)


Hope you enjoyed it.  Have a great day!
