Hello Kitty~ Good-bye Kitty~

Ya know, when people find out your pregnant you get ALLLL kinds of advice. You know exactly what I'm talking about! Then after you have kids it seems like you continuously hear, "Enjoy it now, they grow up so fast!" At first, I was like "yeah-yeah", now I'm, "It's sooooo true!!" I think I blinked and Kiley went from 2 to 7!! Her likes and dislikes change from one moment to the next!
Where's my little girl??? I'll find an outfit that I think is ADORABLE and she says, "Mom, I'm not a baby!" WHAT???!!! Maybe she'd wear it if I started sobbing! {But it truly wouldn't be about the outfit}
This all leads into, Hello Kitty... Aren't little girls supposed to love that little Kitty until they're at least 10+????
 This cute little duffer was in her bathroom and she decided that it could go. Noooo!!! It's great for storing all her fancy jewelry and hair pretties!

Sorry Jo, but it stays!.. How about a face lift??
I thought it would be a little more difficult than it was, but overall it was super easy!
The "facings" popped right off with a tad bit of muscle! It's all glue gun, that's it!!
So, to put it back together I did the exact same thing!
I added the little pull ribbon on the front {quick sew job}, wrapped the fabric around and glued it back down!
These new color will be what's in her bathroom when it's all done {another work in progress!}

{This picture makes the outer area look a little tanner than it is...picture it perfect!} 
Psst...remember that photo wall I mentioned in a post???  I'm super excited to be sharing it over at Ben Franklin!! {Picture me SOOOO excited!!!} I'd love for you to jump over and check it out!


  1. Love the redo of the Hello Kitty drawers :) Found you from the Blog Hop and following you on Bloglovin'. Stop by if you can.

  2. That's the problem with childhood stars like Hello Kitty. One minute they're riding high and the next minute they're kicked to the curb and getting a DUI. Ah, fame.

    Good work by the way. I'd have put it in the file 13 but you made something nice out of it. Good for you.

  3. One of my closest friends is a Hello Kitty fan and she's MY age!!! lol Be prepared for Kiley's tastes to change on a weekly basis the closer she gets to the teen years. Seeing that family picture though - she really is your 'mini me'!! :D

  4. I've never been a hello kitty fan but I know a lot of girls in their 20's that still are I guess it's just different for every girl. Love the face lift you gave it turned out great!

    Found you threw the followers to friends hop :)

  6. Hi Kristy, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  7. Brilliant makeover. What a great example you are setting for your daughter. Redo instead of throw away and buy new. Did she help you? They do change faster than we expect. I have two girls, ages 8 and 10, and blog about raising girls in this crazy world. Check it out if you desire. www.pruningprincesses.com
