Playroom Redo: In Progress...

I have been collecting knick knacks and thing at goodwill over the last few months and working on Little Helper's Playroom. I really didn't have an idea where I wanted to go with it other than
As I collected things that I thought were cute and interesting it started coming together VINTAGE-Y...
Well and of course, why wouldn't it??
Every thing I see in BLOGLAND and LOOOOVE is Vintage-y...
Ever makeover and redo I love is VINTEGE-Y!
And I everyone I "follow" loves VINTAGE-Y things too....
Thus, subliminally, subconciously, deliouriously, I was led to VINTAGE-Y .99 cent items..
OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHH, it is all making sense. now...

So here is the work in progress.... 

Crinkle-ly Wrinkle-ly Red Curtains from World Market
from my Apt. when I was 23 years old...
FREE cuz I had it!!
Valance was $1.49 @ GW
Forse-y from G'amma and Poppa @ her first Bday
$4.99 REupholster glider from GW (fabric was $6) tutorial
And first book she loved READING looking at :)

.99 cent Napa Wine Crate thing-ies from GW
Now, Book shelves

 3 -Dollar Tree frames jazzed up with paper and vintage alphabet letters I googled.
And a .99 cent black frame from GW with another googled image. 
On top of the "shelf" I used a GW .49 cent vase with a pink daisy.

PB inspired hang your children's artwork clothes line thing-y

Vintage Alphabet Paper Medallions

$3.99 GW shelf, my best score!!
They are always like $10 still there, it even still had all the parts to hang up.
.99 cent vintage tin (wonder if it is worth $$ {like on American pickers} :)) 

OHH OHH this awesome Restoration Hardware metal tool box from GW, $3.99,
crayons and markers!

Things to still work on..........
 Sooooo excited to paint this Playroom mat!! And the table....

This is the MADNESS that I still must get a hold of....ARGHHHH, Drive me nuts everytime I see it...
Organizing all of it, just to making it CRAZY MESSY in 2 min FLAT!!!

This toy/garden outdoor storage box will be painted too!!!
This thing is
HUGE!!! And it hold A TON!!!

Hopefully I will get to posting the tutorials for the medallions and the Wall art soon.
