A Mat DIY {ellie's room peek}

Here's a peek into Ellie's room redo! This is the wall that you first see from the hall when looking into Ellie's room. I wanted it to represent Ellie, but also didn't want it to look too child-like since this is a highly viewed area from the main house. I knew the art work from Sophie and Lili would be perfect. Ellie calls the girl in the striped dress her now and the other is when she grows up. I could not be any more pleased with the pieces. They really are so beautiful. The chair I re-covered in La Fiorentina that I received from Shannon of Pink Wallpaper and The Designer Attic. I must say I am in LOVE! Also the chair really doesn't go right there, I just wanted show it off. Ha.

I wanted to add more color to her room and make it even more personal for Ellie so I had her paint the mats any way she wanted. She was THRILLED to say the least. It was an easy project for both Ellie and KJ. It also added the punch I wanted and makes the drawings stand out even more.

The kiddos have loved to have been able to have part in their room designs. They love what I have done, but feel extra proud of the things they picked and created themselves. For me that is a huge win!
