Play Windows for a Problem Area

Today you get a little sneak peek into my daughters completed 'big girl' room. Since my last post MANY moons ago, I have been stuck. We couldn't decide what to do with the room. During my search for the perfect bedding, I was inspired to finish her room with a ballerina theme.

So moving on to this week's post...Play window's for a problem area.
This sweet baby doll bed was mine when I was a little girl. We love it in our daughter's room, however, the space it was in needed some jazzing up. So, I set about the task of making some play windows.
First, I painted a sweet scene on canvas boards. I went with a Paris Ballerina theme.
I painted white 'window-y' lines over the painting and then just added some 'curtains' with hot glue. Attempting to cinch and glue in all the right places.
Then, I connected the two individual windows with sweet ribbon (mainly to avoid putting anymore nail holes in my wall.)
I hung the windows directly above the sweet baby doll bed and we played away! I was a little unsure in the beginning, but am loving them more and more everyday.
I'll be linking to these parties this week, and I will be back next week with the rest of the "dancing details" of this little room!

Happy Thursday!

Absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe you painted that! You are so talented. Wow. These are so beautiful!

Love the curtains, the ribbon tie backs, the ribbon to hold the two boards together, LOVE it all! Looks perfect above that sweet little baby bed and the pillows are just the icing on the cake! : )

Great idea! My classroom has no windows, so this would be really fun to do with my kindergartners!

Thanks for linking up!
