Annaley's Room

In addition to doing the nursery I have been trying to organize Annaley's room and do the finishing touches. We painted it when we moved in and bought a new quilt for her bed but other than that not much has been done. So here is the almost finished product. I really love her room now and even sit up there sometimes, just to look around and enjoy it!

Here is a picture of her bed and Isaac helping me take pictures. The quilt was a baby gift handmade by he great grandmother.

This is her beautiful light fixture.

This dresser was free, it was on the side of the street on garbage day. It is an antique with a bad paint job. I would like to repaint it a cream colour but I haven't got around to it yet, as you can see.

Here is Isaac and his big smiles!

This is her make shift closet. We live in an old farmhouse which we love but it doesn't have closets. We have an armoire picked out that we want to make but for now I painted a wood shelf that we had in the basement and my sisters boyfriend made a couple ends for me that would hold the doweling...presto, and you have a shelf/closet. Works great!

Here is her desk...also a garage sale find (are you seeing a pattern?). It also still needs a paint job.

I made this page for her room a while ago bit just found the frame at a local junk shop for 2 bucks, I painted it and love the way it turned out.

I found a long mirror as well for 3 bucks, painted that and plan on hanging it, you can see the red mark at the same height as the scrapbook page. This task is on Brads to do list.

So that is it, what do you think?


Isaac's Room

It has been so nice to be getting his room finished. I can't believe he will be sleeping in the crib soon, and not his cradle anymore :(. I am trying to savour each step with him because the twins are growing up so fast.

This quilt was the starting point in the room. Brad bought it for me and brought it to the hospital the day after Isaac was born. I love it! So the blue cow colour is what is on the upper half of the walls and the light green from the leaves is the accent. The tan pig is the lower half of the walls.

Here is the changing table, it was a gift from my in laws when we had the twins.

Here is the crib (we do have the front part but we were using it as a toddler bed for Avery), notice the chew marks on the wood, that would be from Avery...

We had this rocking chair in the living room but I moved it up to the bedroom.

Here is my dump dresser...I found it at the dump seriously. I took the hardware off so that I could paint it, I am still unsure what colour to paint it. Any suggestions? The little suitcase I bought at a yard sale for 10 bucks, it was filled with Polly pocket stuff so both Annaley and I were very happy with the find!

Here is the toy box out of Annaley's room with a new coat of paint on it. I forgot to get a picture of the window with the drapery but you can see the colour of it in this picture. I love that all his toys are waiting for him to be old enough....it wont be long!

I still need quite a bit of things for the room. I have paper lanterns to hang above his bed but Brad is not loving the idea. He feels it doesn't fit with a 100 year old farm house decor...please tell him he is wrong! I also need some artwork and a shelf above the changing table. It will all come in time. We are actually going away in a couple of weeks and I want to find some neat artwork second hand if I can.
So there you have it. Do you like it? Anything you would change? I am open always for ideas I love creative people!
