Room Translation: Coral-Inspired Bedroom

Hey there, friends!  Well, we made it to Friday!  I had so much fun with you all this week sharing my projects and decorating ideas.  I hope you are liking this new blog as much as I love writing it!  I have already met so many wonderful people in this awesome world of blogging, and I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to feel so surrounded by my peeps — you; the crafter; the DIY-hungry; the one with spray paint in your hair and hot glue on your fingers; the expert; the novice; the Pinterest-obsessed; the chef…I write for all of you, and you inspire me each and every day!

Since today’s Friday, it’s Room Translation time!  The inspired interior…

This bedroom appealed to me for many reasons.  The coral color, for one.  I mean…  To me, there’s nothing brighter or fancier or more fun than coral.  I love the delicate gold clock on the bedside table, and those pulls on the table?  HELLO!  Gorge.  Here is my translation…

And now, just a quick round-up of what we’ve been up to this week at Inspiration Affirmation…

On Monday, I showed you my pretty, vintage Waterford crystal bowl that I filled with cinnamon-scented pinecones.

On Tuesday, I featured an easy craft using Rub ‘n Buff as the main ingredient!

On Wednesday, I tried my hand at wrapping some presents in a cute way — a sorta-kinda big deal for this gift-bag-loving-girl.  ;-)

And on Thursday, I fixed a 130 year old porcelain elephant who was missing a back leg!  He’s walking much better these days.  ;-)

Which brings us to Friday, my friends.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to seeing you back here Monday morning for some crazy fun!  I’m kicking off a two-week series, and I hope you will join me!  Here is a sneak peak…

Vintage Porcelain Elephant: I Can Fix That!

Have you ever seen a 130 year old elephant?  How about a 130 year old porcelain elephant?  How about a 130 year old porcelain elephant with a missing leg?

My Gramma gave me this elephant a couple of weeks ago.  She likes to give me things, as any grandmother does — just like when she gave me an “old bowl” that turned out to be Waterford crystal.  She gives me things and tells me to take good care of them, and that saying of hers really applied to this sweet elephant.  You see…

*Gulp*.  How sad, right?  And he had been missing his leg for twenty-some years.  My Gramma told me I could take him home, and I promised her I would fix him right up.  So, with a little bit of E6000, my sweet elephant friend was standing on his own four feet again.  ;-)

I need a name for him.  Do you have any ideas?
