A Big Boy Room for The Squirt
Here's the inspiration for the room:

Instead of orange walls we're going with this slightly calmer green.
I love the bright colors and the slightly older look - but the Squirt is still going to be in a crib, so we can't make use of the comforter and they don't offer curtains in this design. So... my pioneer skills are coming into play once again. I made a curtain that looks like the comforter...and I think it turned out decently. Not perfectly...but it was made during naptime, so decent is really what we were shooting for.
Getting a bright fresh coat of paint. (But what color? Turquoise, yellow, orange or stripes?)
This little table used to be B Daddy's bedside table, but it's the perfect size to turn into an arts & crafts center. (You know...for all the crafting we do around here.) I also want to paint it, but again...I need a color suggestion!
This lampshade from Target is supposedly going to be a new hanging light fixture...I'll keep you posted on how that turns out. : )
And this is the start to the Squirt's climbing wall! It should be finished by the end of the weekend. Woo hoo!! (B Daddy and I really want to give it a spin.)
My goal is to show off an "after" picture before you get to see one of the kitchen. I'm ambitious like that.
I'll check back in later this week(end) with a progress report...happy hump day!
