The Swedish summer is magical, but very, very short. We’ll now take time off from pysselbolaget to go swimming, have picknicks and stay up all through the bright nights. Withnew freckles and sand in our hair we plan to return with new fun crafts in August.
We wish you a sweet summer with lots of sun and a lot of time together.
For a few weeks we have shown you big and small projects that can brighten up a kid’s room. The actual room is now ready to be presented. Check it out!
This is little L’s room when we first arrived. The room has a beautiful large window and nice white walls. The crib is no longer used for sleep, but works as a mini sofa for the little lady. To get an overview of what we wanted and could do, we put together a moodboard.
The roof is removable when the play is over. Little L is not completely convinced that the roof is a good idea, but her little cousin thinks that the hut is great! L’s mother also turned a simple rice lamp into an adventurous hot air balloon that is now sailing across the room on it’s way to new and exciting adventures.
Our next big project was to liven up white chairs and tables. We used vinyl foil in different colors to give the furniture color and charm.
The garland gives the room color and an airy feeling. Do you recognize the animal hooks? We did this several years ago but they have now found a home! The painting is also a pysselbolaget project that found a new place to hang out.
We’re almost done with the little L’s room, but before we show you the finished result we would like to tell about one more easy thing to make; a hot air balloon lamp.
Mom S painted the panels on the lamp using acrylic paint. One must be careful when painting, the rice paper rip easily. The little basket is made of a yogurt jar in plastic saved from our recycling. It also got painted with acrylic paint and received small sand bags in fabric. Then it’s off to foreign lands. Piece of cake and a cheap way to liven up a kid’s room!
Want more? Check out Helenas here and a pink one here. Next week we promise to show up the whole room. Have a nice Midsummer!
