Upcoming Projects

Ok, so I said that I was going to get back to you all on September 12th, but today is the 21st… Perhaps I am dyslexic… Of course the more likely (and real answer) is that I am crazy busy right now!
Here is the scoop: We moved into the new place. Oh, what a difference double the square footage makes! We have almost gotten everything settled in and it is such a relief. There are several projects that need to be completed before everything is just right. Most of which, are currently in the works.

Dresser for Christopher’s Room

I am giving you all a sneak peak at the Dresser that we are refinishing for Christopher’s room. This piece has a great history in Geoff’s family and we are excited to have it in the little man’s room. We sanded everything down and did the initial staining last weekend. Hoping to finish up this weekend!

Here is the Before:

Play Table for Christopher’s Room

My very talented sister-in-law, Jennifer (Photographer/Graphic Designer/Artist extraordinaire) gave us a Lack side table from Ikea for us to use in Christopher’s Room. It has been well used and had a fair amount of nicks and paint splatter from its previous life, but a new with a new coat of paint, I think it will be fantastic!

Artwork in Christopher’s Room

I showed you the Lulu DK collection in my post a few weeks ago and I will be framing a few of those fabrics for Christopher’s Room. This one just might be one of them.

I also saw a fantastic US map on another blog that I follow, Shannon Berrey Design. Shannon featured this map that can be printed and applied to cardboard to make a jigsaw puzzle. It is a free printable and the first thing I thought when I saw it was, “Must.Have.For.Christopher’s.Room!” Check out her post here.

I am also planning to do a hanging alphabet on one wall, but can’t decide which printable alphabet set to use yet…. decisions, decisions!

Notice a theme here? Yes, I am now obsessed with decorating my child’s room! To my credit, he has not had his own room until now, so all of the Mommies out there will get what I mean.

What new projects do you have in the works?
