Her bedding is dark brown, if you shop at Kohl's or look at their flyers, you've seen the bedding I'm talking about. The bed skirt is a blue with a brown stripe on it, the quilt is the dark brown and the sheets are a combination. Not at all prim, just her taste! One last photo with a close up of the pocket fabric. On the accent ribbon, I poked blue brads from the scrap booking stash through the middle of the ribbon. Both DD and I thought that jazzed it up quite nicely.

Robby from Cash Strapped Crafting had a link to this project on her blog a while ago. It's a cork board message board. I took a couple of different pictures so you can see the colors better. I didn't follow the directions exactly (I have a problem that way!). I did use Heat and Bond to attach the background fabric - a very dark brown. The directions say to sew all the other pieces together. I thought I could do it easier with my glue gun. YES! It worked. This will now live in my DD's room. You can see the blue paint on her walls, as with all pictures, this blue is much brighter than it is in real life. This past summer she wanted to do away with the "little girl" feel to her room, at age 14 she decided that pink was not her! She did a great job, took down all the wallpaper and got the walls ready to paint. I was VERY hesitant about painting her walls blue, as much as I love the color blue, I've never seen a blue wall that I liked. We spent a while in the paint section at Menard's and this is the color we came home with. DD and DH painted her room one Sunday afternoon while I was at work, what a beautiful surprise to come home to! I told her that her dad and I would now be moving into that room!
