Butterflies in the House

I told you last week that I would share some of my current projects.  Well, one of those was the butterflies we put on Allie's walls.

I received these cute butterflies from a giveaway.


I actually rearranged Allie's room quite a bit, and changed the decor from traditional/shabby chic to a more modern theme.  I will be posting the before and afters when I finish up a couple more projects.

All I used to glue these on the walls was this:


It was actually really easy and fun.  I stood on Allie's bed and had Allie hand me random butterflies.  I didn't have a plan or anything, just an idea of what I wanted to do...I just kinda went with it.


This silver picture frame will be stripped and stained with the same stain as the letter "A" is.


I used the butterflies I had left over around some of the pictures in her room. 


These 2 frames will have the horse pictures I took just for Allie's room.


Along with this 3rd one.


Allie's room before and after will be posted as soon as I can get these few projects finished!

That is gorgous!!!! I tend to be a butterfly fanatic, so hubby is lucky I know I can't do this in our living room, LOL. I especially like how you have the butterflies around the picture frames. Very nice.

Such a sweet touch to your little girl's room. It was especially wonderful how you allowed Allie to pick out the butterflies as you went, made it her's. Wish I had a little girl.
