I now have a sense of completion with one room (nearly 2 as the bathroom is almost fully finished) in my home at this time. Well, at least until I decide it is time for a change! I feel pleased with Ana’s room at this time. This room has experienced many changes throughout the years. When we first moved here 4 years ago, it originally functioned as an office/guest room. There were only three of us at this point as Ana had not yet come to be a part of our family yet. The room had dark panelling and a stained carpet with various bleach spots abound. I have no idea why there were bleach spots, but it was not nice looking.
After Ana made her debut, this room became her bedroom and at 8 x 9, this was the perfect size for her crib and changing table and rocking chair! Then came the transition to daybed, then to big girl bed to now. This is her room and I think it is really cute. I think this room best displays my bargain finds…from the bed frame to the dresser to the table and chairs….all coming together perfectly for her big girl room! I am yet to appropriately arrange her wall hangings and pictures, but that will come. I began to decopage the dresser drawers this past weekend with some awesome pink toile York wallcovering samples and this looks cute thus far…will post a picture of this when it is done. I hope to anyway as my camera appears to be broken and I need to find a replacement and QUICK! I am lost without it. Ana saw the drawer fronts and said “cool Mommy” so I suppose she likes it and it meets her approval. This is a pictorial on the life of a room…what will happen in the next few years to come I wonder?
Here is one of the before photos of her room:
|Obviously an older picture…boy, that was the prettiest sleigh crib!|
Then, more changes for her room:
|A big girl bed! Did you notice the yucky stained carpet?|
|And yet another arrangement at yet another time…I do change things around a lot, don’t I?
And the final and current look with which I adore:
|My precious table which was one of the top 10 best yard sale finds ever!
I won’t tell you how much I paid, but it was a steal…there are also 2 more chairs to the set!
The spindled legs are so pretty!
|A bargain chair from Lisa’s Not Just Antiques which I told y’all about earlier .
Ana really likes monkeys, too!
|Thrifting treasures…and new laminate flooring! The flooring was a Craigslist find!
I think it makes the room. I don’t miss that carpet at all!
