So I guess with a new addition to the family, some changes to the family abode must be made. With everything under the stars (and more) available to choose from...how do you choose? To be honest, I don't know how I chose. Actually, yes I do know...Mark vetoed my first choice in colours.
Anyway, so with the colours chosen, how do you pick everything else? Bedding, furniture, all important accessories... there are so many possibilities!! It's not like the kid is going to care though right? They won't even have a clue. It's all about the parents.
I decided against my original plan for a child's room...mainly due to the time it would require to get it done and also, I want the child to be old enough to appreciate the coolness of their room.
Now here we are with plan 2...not so much of a plan, but what we ended up with. Funny how you can have one thing in mind and then end up with something completely different. We always said we'd go with dark wood for the furniture (we have white), and I didn't want a totally girly room (there is no way Mark would ever let a boy live in this room).
So without further ado, I present the Smith's Extreme Home Makeover (sorry no before pictures! But it's easy to imagine - grey walls).
Thanks Mark and Dad for painting the walls, and a huge THANK YOU! to my Mom for helping me paint all of the polka dots and all of the sewing for the cribbing.
Anyone have any ideas on cool room decor that is not Disney or cartoon characters?
