I See Dots: Ella's Room

Every night for the past 15 months I sit in the same chair and rock my baby to sleep. It is a sweet time. I time I LOVE and cherish. I love holding her in my arms, singing to her, saying our prayers, and then just looking at he beautiful face as she sleeps. After that, I stare around the room and think...What can I change in here to make me like it more?!

This was Ella's first room. I loved it, until I sat in the chair every night looking around and thinking...Why did I put her in the smallest room in our house? So, she moved here.


And I finally came up with something new. See... Maye this will help you a little bit better.
Okay fine...how about now? Yes! POLKA DOTS!!! I have always looked at this big wall and wanted to add sconces, or paint something on it, or do something. Then, I put her to sleep and go about my day to day tasks and don't really think twice about it until the next night would roll around and I would be faced with the big bare wall again. Repeat process.
I finally decided I was going to paint a damask pattern. But remember the scrolls I painted at my sister in law's house. Uhh! I didn't want to go through that again. I needed something simple I could do while having a 15 month old pull on my pant leg. And can I say I LOVE IT! I rearranged the room and am so happy with the final result. However, now the chair faces a different wall, so I may have to change that one now!!!

This turned out absolutely beautiful!! So creative, girl. :) And, I'm totally borrowing your idea of tracing with a paint pen- genius.

Love,
