BigBoy's Room: the furniture is in.

This weekend we moved BigBoy's newly-painted bookshelf and chest of drawers back into his room. I was thrilled with how they came out.

I love the clean look of the white bookshelf with his colorful books.

We repainted this yardsale chest of drawers and replaced the wooden knobs with new brushed nickel ones.

We think the knobs add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise blah piece of furniture.
Plus, the ball-shaped knobs are easy for little hands to grasp.

I purchased an inexpensive reversible red/khaki comforter from Target and a matching sham. I didn't even iron them before putting them on the bed because I couldn't wait to see what it looked like.

So to review, here's the before:

And the current after:

I still have curtain panels to purchase (those are the rods leaning in the corner) and dino posters to hang.

And because Gramps says every blaaaahhg post is incomplete without a picture of the children, here ya go.

Can I borrow one of those cuties for a week or so? My biological clock is ticking faster than I can get finished with school. I need to borrow yours until I can get my own. Thanks.

Haha, sure! :)
One of those cuties dumped a cup full of wall paint all over my carpet this morning!

I can live with that, I have hardwood.

It looks so grown up :) Very much a big boy room.
And the pic is TOO cute.

Kelly, you can borrow Brynn. She's a 24-hr cure for baby fever.

Except ours, unfortunately lol.

Thanks for the gratuitous grandchildren picture. By the way, the room looks good too. Love you guys!

Thanks for the compliments. I'm obviously not done with his room yet but I'm loving it so far.
