WOW! Thanks to Layla Palmer at The Lettered Cottage, I got an amazing response to my brand-new baby blog yesterday.
I really, really (really!!!) appreciated your comments, and even though I'm obviously not a professional, I'm so excited to share our projects...like this almost-finished redo of what the previous owners called "The Doll Room."
You can only see a couple of the dolls in this photo, but please trust me when I say there were...more.
No further comment needed.
New paint, molding, carpet, plantation shutters, closet...but I still have a lot of ideas to implement:
Window treatments: Yes or no?
A bold stripe or graphic pattern area rug.
Black and white photos of Blake doing all his little energetic activities.
A little book-and-toy corner so the poor kid doesn't have to share EVERY last thing with his big brother.
And this picture makes me realize that a new bedside lamp must be on the list.
We brought these prints back from our Hawaiian honeymoon, and they're currently in our dining room...but I think I'll move them to Blake's beachy room.
These are cheap Pottery Barn pillow covers from the outlet, and I just went to one of those embroidery stands at the mall
for the monogram.
I love these pillows in a way that is not healthy. ;-)
I'll keep you posted as changes are made! :-)
