Geesh, where’d the time go??? I’m inching ever closer to my self-imposed end of summer deadline for finishing up baby girl’s room. September 21st is the big day. There’s still quite a bit of work to do, but I am making tortoise-pace progress.
I figured out what to do with my rolled ribbon flowers. This little piggy bank won’t look like the Dollar Tree bank that it is when I get through.
I made some girly basket tags. (The Doodling 101 class came in very handy). Total cost $0. I upcycled these Dollar Tree baskets that I used at her 1st birthday party. Plus, I’d already had the tags and ribbon.
I also found these cute baskets at Home Goods for baby girl’s dolls. I need to go back and reinforce them though, because she’s quite rough when pulling out her toys. (Side note: That pair of beanie babies was a gift from my grandmother right before my wedding. It makes me so happy that their among Christiana’s favorite toys since they never had a chance to meet.)
And most importantly, I started painting the ceiling. Can I just say that climbing to the top of a 10 foot ladder definitely tests your fear of heights.
I’m so glad that everything is finally coming together. That’s as much of a sneak peak as you’re getting for now. If you want to see more, you can either join me for a paint party or wait for the big reveal in a few weeks.
By the way, how are your summer projects coming along? Slow as molasses like mine, by any chance?
