Fifi's Room

So it turns out that fixing up Chloe's room is not a one weekend job. Or 2. Or even 4.

However... I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Then again, I could stop, but it's actually fun! (Can you tell the nesting has begun?)

Chris, however, has done his part and keeps making me promise that he is done (I'm surprised he hasn't asked me to get that notarized, I'm pretty sure that he wants it in writing).

Now it's just the girly touches to complete -
...that and perhaps some good ole' grandpa Chuck elbow greeeezee. (yes, that's grease for everyone that doesn't say warsh instead of wash like grandpa chuck).Ok. Inside joke to those who don't know evidently. Sorry, Kip. We Love ya. Can't wait for you to come visit and lend me some of your mad skills. Don't worry; you won't work the whole time. Promise.

I spent a good part of our wonderful 3 day weekend in search of the perfect spare bed accompliments for Chloe's room. It's hard enough finding the 'perfect' crib bedding...then trying to outfit a bed to match without breaking the bank is nearly impossible!! I finally found a quilt from Nautica that didn't make my head spin and I'm pretty proud of myself I must say!



Ohhh and have I mentioned that I changed out the door knobs in Chloe's room?? All I can say is that I'm AWESOME. I seriously think it would be easier to become an astronaut than try to figure out how to change a door knob. It's a serious engineering feat and I'm pretty sure there's some kind of door knob conspiracy. Here are before and after pics so you can understand why the old ones NEEDED to go.

Anyway - Below are some pictures of the wall letters I finally got the guts to hang up. They're not perfect but I had lots of fun being creative and making them... now they certainly need some help from grandpa Chuck -- he has a knack for making things look much better.
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
