A sea grass bench and some angel wings...

I have been trying to finish up this little girls room. I had a few ideas of what I wanted to put at the end of Chloe's bed. I thought about maybe doing a bench, two poufs or possibly some ottoman cubes. I was looking online at the local classifieds and came across this sea grass bench. It was brand new and they were only asking $40. I loaded my kids up and had to go grab it, I couldn't pass it up! The quality is awesome and I like the warmth and texture it brings to her room.

Onto the angel wings... when I was doing my Christmas shopping, I came across these metal and wood carved angel wings. I looked at them and kept on shopping. I didn't see any other displays of them through out the store, I think they were the only ones left. I thought about them for several days and had to go back. They are so unique and I love the gold color and thought they would be perfect for Chloe's room. I was so relieved to find them in the same place when I went back to the store. I gave them to her for Christmas, I don't think a 5 year old cares about decor but she actually did really like them, phew!

My husband thinks her room looks too grown up. I know it does and it's not too exciting for a little girl but she is a 20 year old trapped in a little 5 year old body so it fits her well. She has always been wise beyond her years. I think she is smarter than I am. Half the questions she asks, I don't know the answer too. Maybe she will just skip the teen years! Maybe I should find some pictures of Dora the Explorer to frame :)

I found this cool quilted looking vase at Crate and Barrel that I grabbed for her dresser. I took the picture of coral a few years back in Mexico and framed it in a ikea frame. Now I need to find a unique mirror to hang above her dresser. Have you checked out the mirrors on Kirklands website? They have some pretty cool mirrors and the prices aren't bad!

It does look a little grown up but once all of her books and a few colorful toys are in there it will definitely look like a 5-year-old room. The bench is really great, and what I really love is that you did a chair on the other side of the bed - what a great look and still very balanced with the nightstand on the other side. And the emerald green pillow is also so pretty that is on the chair. PS - Day 2 of lipstick for me. Hooray!!

Thank you for your comments ladies!

The lampshade is so pretty and unique in real life, it's hand painted. They have some really cool lighting options.
