Again, I am not a professional photographer OR decorator, but I am trying to learn! This bathroom was the most awkwardly shaped bathroom with horrible flat paint. It was bothering me, so I painted it. I found this mirror on the side of the road at my neighbors. (I have no shame). It was black and red and weathered and just basically crappy looking. Painted it three coats of white and weathered it some. I put it up in place of an oval mirror, you know the standard ones that come with houses. Like it much better!!
I am a bow person. I have two girls and LOTS of ribbon!! And up till a few months ago, nowhere to put them. I had a few frames hanging around and took the glass out and painted them black. With the cardboard, I covered with fabric and hot glued the back. I added three ribbons and hot glued them. It has helped organize them and keep them cute!
I was going through my linen closet awhile back and found a whole bunch of pillowcases that I never use anymore. For the dress, I just added the embellishments that I had hanging around. It was easy, just cut and sew the seam. I also added one to the middle and a bow to the back. For the sleeves, I just cut an armhole and sew in some stretchy stuff in to the collar. The sleeves were so easy too, just cut and sew.
The superhero cape was even easier! Had some free ribbons and sewed them on. Made different letters "H" for my daughter and "S" for my son. They love them! Have given them away for gifts too and it's great!
I am not the best photographer. Would love to be, but my camera is just point and shoot!
