A Desk for Lyla

Good Morning!  Were you lucky enough to have yesterday off?  We had a holiday here and it was a rainy day, so we spent our time at the movies and then home for a nap.  Sometimes it's nice to have a rainy day and the perfect excuse to be lazy.

So are you tired of seeing my daughter's room yet?  I think I am finally calling it done!  The last two projects I wanted to tackled were her pom pom curtains and her desk space.  I finished the curtains a couple of weeks ago and you can see the full post here.  And I finally got her desk in the right spot and added some accessories.  We actually moved this desk in her room from our playroom a little while ago, but it was on the opposite side and I never finished accessorizing it.  She has a nice size space between her bed and window, so I decided to move it there, so she would have lots of natural light pouring in.  Nothing too fancy, but she loves it!  One thing about Lyla is she is a child that will play by herself in her room or playroom for hours and this desk is one of her favorite spots!

I think my favorite part are the flower bookends that I found at Home Goods.  How fun are those?  The bins for her colors, markers and other art supplies are from the container store, and I changed out the knob on the drawer with this pink one from Hobby Lobby.  We added a few old DIYs including the gold arrow, the pom pom garland and the heart clipboard.

So that does it!  Nothing like a 10 month room makeover...thanks for sticking with me while I finished this space at snail's pace ;)

Have a lovely day!
