Just a quick update on how the Big Boy Room is coming along...
Then we patched all the holes in the walls, painted, and assembled an Expedit.
The growth chart has arrived (see it in the design board here) and it is just as awesome as I was hoping, so I'll share more pics soon. I've also spent an inordinate amount of time rearranging the closet to make room for S's things and get all our not-remotely-child-proof tools and DIY supplies out of there - not an easy task but it is much more organized now! If I'd thought about it, I would have taken before and after pics, but I didn't, so you'll just have to take my word that it's a vast improvement! The next priority is getting the new bed assembled (we bought the frame last weekend) and getting a new mattress in there.
Here's the to-do list as it stands now:
- Add accent stripes to walls
- Replace futon with full-size bed
- Add storage
- Hang art
- Hang shelves
- Add spice rack bookshelves
- DIY beanbag for reading area
- Update lighting
- Consider new bedding options
I think that's it!
If you're celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope you have a good one. We are keeping low-key with just the three of us (well, four if you count the bump) and going out for dinner, so sadly no exciting Thanksgiving decor from me this year. Christmas, on the other hand...
