This picture was taken when Todd and I were touring the home at the time we were purchasing it. Abi does not own that many porcelain dolls, nor has she ever been given roses....or been alive long enough to dry some.
I am covered in wood-stain as I have just finished staining Abi's bed. It's been a fun project bringing her 80's captain's bed into the 00's (is that what we call it?) with a fresh coat of stain.
I tried to find a good picture of what the bed looked like before (I didn't take a before shot...lame). I did, however, use yet another one of the photos from when we toured the house (yes, they left us these beds...for which I will always be grateful).
The plan is to paint her walls "pumpkin" tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. I have to give myself three days to paint her small room because there will at all times be small feet running between mine.
Saturday, during General Conference (I like to have a project to keep my hands busy while listening), I will be aided by my dad (the stencil maker) and my mom (the pro stippler) as we paint two trees in her bedroom, like this:
Then I will sew some curtains (found the most perfect fabric today...too bad the price is a little bit pricy...I may have to alter the style of window treatment) and paint some DI Find frames and her room will be done! I'll show you the pictures and post again when the room is finito!
