Alice in Wonderland little girls' room @ohbotherblog

Lately I’ve been getting the itch to start working on Holden’s big girl room. I’m thinking I want to have an Alice in Wonderland feel (you know how I feel about themes!).

Originally, I was feeling pretty ambitious and thought I could make Holdy a rag quilt for her room, using the Easy, Thrifty, Pretty Rag Quilt {Tutorial} from The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking.

Aren’t the colors so pretty?

Now remember, I can’t sew to save my life. AND, as I was looking into the various patterns and quantities of fabrics I was going to have to buy, I realized… I’d be better off just buying the damn quilt.

So… I just ordered this gorgeous Amy Butler rag quilt from On a Small Scale on Etsy.

The quilt’s going to take a few months, so by the time it arrives, I’ll be ready to dive into the other pieces.

  • I want to paint the walls yellow (possibly Fun Yellow by Sherwin Williams, shown above), with a chalkboard accent wall.
  • I want to refinish some old dressers in bright, fun colors.
  • I may attempt to make that teacup clock, which, again may be too ambitious for me.
  • I think I can probably handle that colorful hook rack, but we’ll see!
  • What do we think about that Cheshire Cat wall decal? Creepy? Cool?

Anyway, the wheels are turning! I’ll post some pics when I actually get started.
