…pair of garage doors! WooooooHoooo! Aren’t they loverly? I love the way the barn-door-type doors look and I’ve always wanted them…so, my Daddy made them for me. I’m very pleased with them and now E can even get into the garage by herself.
This is what the door used to look like:
BLECH! It was an old, rickety overhead door – and it was broken. The cables had snapped and it took all my strength just to open it.
And in other news, E decided she no longer wanted a pink room. Boo hoo. I loved her pink room – it was so girly cutesy. She insisted we paint it blue. It is a pretty blue – kinda blinding, though. She also insisted that I get rid of all her baby pictures in her room. Her exact words, “You need to remove all of those ridiculous baby pictures of me. It’s embarrassing when my friends come over and see them.” Another boo hoo, from me. She was such a CUTE baby:
The before – PINK room:
The during – PINK to BLUE room:
The after – BLUE room
I bought some really cool fabric to make new curtains because she also insisted we remove the shutters and the pink gingham shades. So, I whipped up some curtains…
Painted the valance white and voila…
Not too shabby, eh?
We got rid of her full bed and Grandma & Grandpa bought her a lovely daybed with trundle (so she can have her friends sleep over)
I assembled the bed all by my little self and then we went hunting for a cute comfoter set. Surprisingly, we found one right away. It matches the walls and the curtains perfectly. What luck! She is thrilled with her new room and stays up there for hours – which is good because she still has a ton of sorting and cleaning to do.
