Girls' room update, Paper Name Banners & Don't miss the Stampin' Up First-Ever Warehouse Sale!

We've been on a paint kick this week, and Libby and Mia were the first to benefit.

We painted their room in Valspar Ultra paint + primer in Brushed Lavender. I really like it. In the collage above, you can see the difference lighting makes in the hue.

Libby and Mia also wanted some gray accents in the room. So we bought these ombre curtains to use instead of closet doors.

These are two Your Zone Crushed Ombre Curtain panels hung on a tension rod. The mirrored valance at the top is leftover from the mirrored closet doors that used to be in this room. They were here when we bought the house, but they were definitely not cut out for kids. They bit the dust awhile ago, but the mirrored valance hides the rod and ruffle at the top, and goes perfectly with the white to silver to charcoal color of the curtains. The girls love it!

I got the idea to make name banners for the girls out of Stampin' Up products I just happen to have floating around. The girls chose the papers and ribbon they wanted. We cut two sizes of triangles out of plain paper for a template. The two sizes are glued together with a glue stick. Mia's ribbon is grosgrain, which also glues nicely to paper with a crafting glue stick. Libby chose satin ribbon, and it doesn't like to glue so nicely, so we used brads to help attach her triangles to the ribbon.

To make a loop at each end, we threaded the ribbon through a button--up through one hole and down through the other, and then tied a knot on the other side, like so:

Mia chose light blue buttons from Stampin' Up, and Libby chose orange. To hang the banners, I used Command mini hooks in clear.

**If you like the Stampin' Up products you see and you are in the Salt Lake City area, don't miss the big Stampin' Up warehouse sale going today and tomorrow (9/6 to 9/7) at the South Town Expo Center. This is their first-ever warehouse sale. The best part is you save up to 70% off! {Note that my hubby doesn't work there anymore, so I'm just telling you this so you can grab a great deal if you're so inclined. :) }
