A bit of Colorful Creativity...

Sharing some of the creativity going in at daughter's home (since nothing happening in mine).  When they moved into their (new to them)  home a few months ago, they found an old, weathered (unsafe to climb on) ladder that had been left behind, and she decided to clean it up and use it as a prop for a colorful throw, a stack of books,  patriotic decor and some country themed items.
A bulletin board she made for one of the Grands' rooms. Grand wanted black,white and a touch of red, and use Paris, France related items.  That being the goal, the room is a work in progress, so more on it another time.
Little red headed cupid's room is the colorful one in the house - just a sample of what is going on in there.  The lamp was an old, brass lamp my daughter had in her room for years when growing up. She decided it was time to get out the spray paint, then take strips of fabric (leftovers from another project) and create a colorful shade.  The table is another "redo" project - more on that another time.
Children grow, change their minds on their likes/dislikes, so spray paint, quick craft projects become your friend......

Your daughter certainly has been busy. She sure has some creative ideas. I love the ladder and have been looking for one myself for a guest room.

Your daughter is so creative! Love the lampshade and I've been looking for an old ladder for a couple of years now. It's hard to find a wooden ladder these days!

I love that lampshade! It looks like she just tied a strip of fabric from top to bottom. I actually have a Pinterest board for lampshade ideas because I have one that needs to be fixed....pinned! Visiting from Anything Blue Friday
