I'd like to show you the room from start to finish!!
So his room is like 90 % complete. I haven't bought a glider yet and i'd like to get a cream or tan rug, some of the stuff that needs to be sewn isn't done yet either.
Diamonds are soooo hard to paint, thank you Brandon, he spent like 4 hours doing the math and taping.
I ran out of paint so I actually just mixed the second diamond color by hand from the samples I had purchased, I was pretty proud of myself with the color palette finish.
This dresser was going to be the death of me this summer. Brandon and I found this at Salvation army for $140, I talked them down to $110, it's really well made and we couldn't pass it up. So after HOURS AND HOURS of grueling sanding, and HOURS AND HOURS of grueling staining, and polyurethane-ing with some new knobs we turned this dresser into quite an impressive piece. Not to brag, but sort of.
I loved this vintage photograph and got it printed and framed it. Etsy shop, tickledchic, she made these custom for me. love her.
My mom has sewn the curtains, the crib skirt, and his going to sew the bumper, some pillows, and a quilt. She rocks!
These trophies are actually Brandon's and a couple are Brandon's brothers, spray painted bronze. They're from his pee-wee days, it's a special touch. Also, if you have read my blog for a while you'll remember my nursery inspiration post, I wanted this helmet really bad......couldn't pass it up....if you look back at that post, you'll see i got almost everything I wanted off of it. Put your mind to it and you can have anything you want!
My mom knew I'd be eyeing this artwork, which turned out to be customizable. It was an awesome splurge I wouldn't have spent the money on so I really appreciate her going all out for me.
