95% there

...With the room.

I hemmed and hawed over bookcases and then found this antique pine armoire, which was marked down for a song. I have a thing for old pine armoires. This is the 4th one in our house. It holds toys, books and a pile of clothes that have yet to be washed and hung. Next weekend.

Here is the vintage secretary's desk I painted. The attached changing pad can come off when Missy is out of diapers and then we'll use it as her desk. We still need to hang the Shaker rack over the changing table.

Those effing curtains - lined and all - are 9 freaking feet long. Each.


Sorry I haven't been posting or commenting. As you can see, I've been on a mission this week.

And mission accomplished I'd say -- what a beautiful, loving calm and welcoming room.

It's GORGEOUS.

I love it. I especially love that it has a very distinctive and coordinated look without looking even remotely played out or overdone -- very classic and timeless. Amazing work.

How exciting is this!?

I love it! It looks so serene! I love using antiques and re-purposed furniture. Is the crib wood or metal? It's lovely.

Great Job!

Oh but it looks so serene and lovely!
I am so jealous... but only 16 more days 'til we move and I can start setting up a room for our little man.

Looking good though, looking good!
