Months ago, I fell in love with this split butterfly artwork from Pottery Barn Teen. I did not, however, love the $149 plus shipping price tag. No thank you!
I loved the colors for Cora’s room since (not that you can currently tell), the colors for her room are lavender and aqua. I love that color combo and since she’s a “sensitive” child, the soothing colors should do her some good. She currently loves the colors, so hopefully that sticks.
She also loves butterflies. And ballerinas. And dinosaurs. But, definitely butterflies.
I haven’t attempted watercolor painting since probably high school, but I joined the girls when they were painting and gave it a go with their paints, brushes, and paper.
It’s no Picasso, but Cora loves it and makes sure that anyone who comes near the house comes to see it. I framed it in inexpensive, sale frames from Michaels. They are the same style used in our family photo gallery hall only in a different size. I love how these inexpensive frames create a gallery look for a serious budget.
I reserved this spot for some special art for her room and am relieved to finally have this done! Cora’s room has been semi-neglected since she is in that transition from needing a baby room to needing a big girl room. We don’t have her “big girl” furniture yet, so we’ve mostly been focusing on the accessories like this art, the night-light lamp, the purple tray for odds & ends from the Home Goods kitchen department, and a couple cherished photos of Cora and her sister like the one in the rose frame on her dresser.
