My Room

Since I took over my son’s room after he moved out, I have been slowly making it look like my own room.  Here are a couple of the things I did recently. He had a bulletin board in there, that wasn’t looking too great.  Here is a picture of the before.


And here it is after I covered it in some pretty fabric. I have since pinned some things onto it, but don’t have an up-to-date pic of it.


I made my own custom pushpins. I glued a flower bead to the head of the pin.  Love them!


These wall hangings were made from some embroidered squares that I found in my mom’s things, after she passed away.  It took me a while to decide what to do with them, and this is what I decided on.  The wooden hoops and lace were also among her things.




Thanks for looking, and have a great day!


  1. Love the bulletin board Rita - and the hoops with your Mom's embroidery are such lovely remembrances of her. You'll have to show us pictures of your room when you're finished decorating it. :)

  2. You have turned the embroidered squares very creatively into wall hangings !! They look beautiful :)
    Your pinboard is looking very pretty !! Can't wait to see the entire room.

  3. Love the bulletin board! Mama's embroidery is beautiful.

  4. Thank you, Debi, Preeti and Charlotte, for your kind words. Much appreciated! :)
