Oh, one more thing. I went dumpster diving today and it was AWESOME! Totally not ashamed of it...ok so maybe there was a moment of bashfulness when the homeowner walked up with her dog to ask if she could "help" me...I responded, "may I please take these cornices from your trash??". (Mom always instilled please and thank you in us kids :) ). She looked at me sorta puzzled [guess this is a little odd in suburbia...but I've still got my roots from our days in Cleveland Heights--no shame lady], and then preceded to explain how to hang them and apologized for how dusty they were. Ha! Bless your heart. Maybe I'll take Natalie on a walk some time and thank her for this treasure. They turned out great and add something cute to the wood blinds.
Anyway, this may sound silly, but I'm a new mom and I don't know better yet: I am eager to have those 2am moments with our daughter, even if it involves awful smelling human waste..... It won't be much longer :)
Without further ado....here's the transformation of room in house and how it became our daughter's space...
We love this space and are so appreciative to my in laws for helping me learn how to wall paper--yes WALLPAPER!! Thanks guys!
