How I repurposed my wedding veil at home #Home#bedrooms#beds#kids#newlyweds#repurposed wedding decor#twinkle lights October 14 2014 | Guest post by Sheila Did you see my incredibly simple, $14, no-sew DIY veil on Offbeat Bride? This is how I repurposed the fabric for our daughter's room… Photo by Aly Carroll Here's our two-year-old daughter Sophie as our flower girl, playing in the veil. Here it is in its new home: Sophie's bedroom. I did nothing to it but throw it over the canopy that was already there and tie the sides with some ribbon that I meant to use for some other DIY project I never actually did. The star lights are also a repurposed wedding decoration. I love how it all turned out and, much like the veil, it required no real effort or crafting. Another plus: Sophie is now very interested in sleeping in "her own little bed" as she calls it, for the first time ever! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Just wanted to say that I love this idea! Also, it's really cute that your daughter calls it her "own little bed." 🙂 Thanks for sharing! Reply Wow, I really love being able to re-purpose wedding items! I just went to a wedding and helped clean up afterwards, and so much stuff just went into the garbage… Reply One of my fondest memories as a child was when my parents splurged and got me an all-matching bedroom set. It was cream with butterflies on the bed, bedding, and dresser. It had a beautiful sheer canopy on it, and I thought it was so magical. She is a lucky little girl to have a room like this! It looks so dreamy! Reply So pretty!! I chose all my wedding decor based on if it could be re-purposed later! Now our new apartment is fully decorated and we had very little garbage from the wedding to haul away. LOVE dual functions.
