I can’t believe that Christmas is in just a couple of days. Does it seem like the past month just flew by to anyone else? I swear Thanksgiving was yesterday. Of course, leave it to me to get a cold two days before Christmas. I’m all stuffed up and that should make for a fun holiday… but I digress.
Moving into a new place is a pain in the a**, but it can also be really fun when it comes to decorating. So far I haven’t hung anything on the walls because I have wall-commitment phobia.
I am a crazy wall display person; blank walls drive me nuts and something about stuff on the walls makes a house feel like home. So I’ve been desperately trying to figure out what to hang where, but refusing to commit to anything in particular. Thus, the walls have remained blank. This past weekend I decided it was time to get my butt in gear and hang SOMETHING, so I started in Mia’s room.
My 2 1/2 year old loves cowboys. I’m not even sure where the obsession first began, but she started running around with anything she could find that was similar to a rope and yelling, “Yee-haw, I a cowboy!”
After making the hanging indoor tent, pallet toddler bed, and quilt, the rest was all in the details!
This white cabinet was something I found curbside for free. I didn’t know what I would use it for at the time (although I had an inkling it would be perfect for my little girl’s room one day), and it spent at least 6 months in our garage. After a good cleaning (it was FILTHY), I brought it in and starting filling it with goodies. Mia doesn’t have a dresser, so it gave us a place to put her folded clothes, cloth diapers, and other odds and ends.
I FINALLY finished updating my daughter’s room from a nursery to a “big-girl room” and I am thrilled to finally be showing it off (after lots of teaser posts).
My daughter, Mia, is closing in on the 2 1/2 year mark, and her baby brother is due in a mere 6 weeks, so it was time for her to have a more functional room for her age and to transition into a bed so we could move the crib into the new nursery.
