The Closet

After painting the girls' room, I was stumped on what to do about the closet. I had rolled it white, and it was begging to be painted. Isla had the idea: rainbow with a gold star! So I did it, and we love it.

The silk banner on the wall is easy to make. We used some of the silk we had dyed, cut rectangles, outlined letters (I was shooting for an anthroposophy-type font), painted them gold, sewed the tops down by hand, and finally threaded a gold ribbon through them. We left the edges raw like prayer flags.
