There is just one week left of this awesome One Room Challenge! I have loved seeing all of the different spaces come together each week! I can not wait for next week to see all of the rooms completed!
I have another project to share with you this week and that is my Boho Curtain Tie backs, but first I want to share a few different room decor items!
I have been having so much fun shopping for this room!
There are so many adorable Mermaid items out in the stores right now, so it is a perfect time to buy decor!
I do have to remind myself to but things that are practical for a 4 year olds room! There are so many things that I love that just wouldn’t work so well in a kids room. Like that little gold turtle. I could easily see him being used as a projectile missile and someone ending up hurt. Those pretty coastal orbs would be mistaken for balls to play with, and then being thrown down the stairs and broken in half. I am not worried so much about the 4 year old doing those things as I am the almost 2 year old.
One thing that I am very excited about putting in the room is this vintage headboard I scored at a garage sale back when Arianna was a baby. I have held onto it just waiting until she got big enough to use it in her room.
I scored this lovely little thing for $5! Can you believe it!
I love its curves and gold button. The material is kind of a pearl toned which goes perfectly with her Vanity Under the Sea table that I spruced up. I searched to find a similar headboard for sale and this was the closest that I could find.
At this Point the room just needs to be assembled and then it is ready to go!
Now on to this weeks project:
Boho Curtain Tie Backs
This project is super quick and simple. I got the idea as I was working on a boho style pillow for Arianna’s bed. I had originally thought that I would go with this mermaid pillow, but then my room design has taken a slight turn into more of a boho feel that I wasn’t quite expecting. So I decided to make my own pillow which you will get to see next week in the room reveal!
I had originally ordered these Antique Bronze Metal Circles to put on my boho pillow but I ended up going a different direction yet again.
Isn’t funny how you can plan decorate a room a certain way and then your plans just move in their own directions sometimes? All because you fell in love with a pillow or rug, (hint hint!)
As I was working on the pillow the idea came to me on how I could still use these Metal Circles in the room!
I had originally tied a knot in the curtains to keep them held back. It took me awhile to get both of the knot even looking and the same height.
I spent way more time on it then I should have.
One night the moon was too bright and my husband untied my knots to pull the curtains closed.
I was not happy that all of my work was undone, but knew that I was going to have to figure something else out.
I took the Antique Bronze Metal Circles and strung them onto some white bakers twine. I tied a knot behind each metal circle as I put it on. This helped keep the circles spread out and not just in a little clump.
I tied the knots in random lengths from each other. I wasn’t too worried about them being exactly the same distance apart. I wanted my Boho Curtain tie backs to have their own natural flow to them.
Once they were long enough I just tied them around my curtain. They are not attached to the wall.
I just draped the curtains out further at the top and then used the boho tie back to pull the curtains back. They stayed perfectly in place and they are super easy to removed in case we need to block out that pesky moonlight again!
You are not going to want to miss the reveal of this room next week! I have so many goodies to show you!
