The gals' room
It all started with a ceiling fan. After getting a kiddy ceiling fan for the gals room and because of Mei Mei's BD party, I wanted to make the gals' room sweeter and more cosy. After all, what's the point of having 2 gals if I can't give them a sweet girly princess bedroom right? If it's one gal and one boy sharing a room, how to have a consistent theme? hehe.
Most of the stuff came from Ikea but the imported Made in Europe fabric curtains were the biggest extragavant buy from Goodrich. 3 sets of curtains (including 2 sets in the living room) came to more than $1500. Imagine we paid about $2k for the whole house previously but that was 2 sets of roman blinds, 2 sets of full length curtains, 1 set of full length day curtains & 4 sets of half curtains. The ballerina curtains does add a sweet and bright look to the room compared to the old brownish curtains. But because I was too cheapskate to add a block-out lining, the room is very bright in the day and RaeAnne has problem napping in the day. Morale of the story, no point spending $1500 just to stinge on another $300-400. Sigh, hope it's a phase. :P
