Awesome Pirate Girl Room!

A few months ago I was contacted by a customer about my pink girly pirate lampshade.

She was re-doing her step daughter's room and wanted the shade to be the inspiration (this made me soooooo giddy!). She bought the shade and I made her promise to send pictures once the room was finished (I even sent her scraps of the fabric which she added to the throw pillows on the bed - LOVE IT!). Here is the finished product...I would have killed for a room like this when I was 10!!

Thanks so much for sharing Summer :)
