Our Big Project

Over the last few weeks we have been working on getting the upstairs arranged for Eden. Luca and Adrian are now settled into their new rooms. Our playroom toys are now all in the basement and the clutter of toys, old clothes, and junk sitting at the landing of the stairs is now all packed up, sold, or thrown out. Eden's room is coming together. My dad painted the upper part of the walls the prettiest blue and the chair rail and wainscoting are now up thanks to Ron. My dad is on his way over to paint it today. Ron was so cute working on the wainscoting project. He wanted it to be "perfect" and I think it is! My friend Lynn has been making Eden's crib bedding. We spent about four hours picking out all of the fabric. Each piece is different so it took a while to get something that matched and looked good together. Soft pinks, swiss dot, chenille, and a print from Pottery Barn Kids called Cherry Blossom make up the bedding. The overall look of the room will have a shabby chic/vintage feel. I have a box of Valentine cards that were my grandmother's . Some date back to before 1900. I love the colors and designs on the cards so much and are my "inspiration" when picking things out for the room. I also have a small victorian looking love seat that was my grandparents that I will be reupholstering for her room. I sold my changing table and bought one that is a white Jenny Lind style to keep with the vintage feel. This has been so much fun!!!! Here are some pics....
