My color inspiration came from the starting grounds of a burnt red bed spread that I had previously. Then came a rug and accent pillows from Target. I'm not so much into the whole "girl=pink" theme, so I veered off that path rather quickly.
Last week our project was a dresser. We found a junker at a garage sale in September for like $20. It was straight out of 1982 and someone had splattered wretched colored paint over it, it looked like a piece. Luckily Rand wasn't turned off by this and could see the bigger picture. After hours of sanding in the fall and a long break, we started up again. We primed, painted, and picked out some new handles, and I must say, it looks good. No before picture to show, but I'll post one of how it looks now.
The other project has been a circle project. In february I asked my dad and Rand to cut out circles of varying diameters. I picked out maybe 7 and found a neat printed fabric. The 8 or so other circles are like a light gray. The plan is for them to be mounted on the wall above the Mini Crib we are still on the hunt for. In the center of the circles will be her name in silver-wire. Rand made it on Saturday, but it's unveiling will happen when we bring her home!
On the opposite wall are three panels. The two on the ends are pegboard that are painted that light gray color and in the middle is the chalkboard. I found a bunch of random picture frames, shelves, and knick nacks to hang and will be putting those up soon as well.
Mobile I woke up on Sunday and decided I wanted to make.
Its starting to come together. We are on the hunt for a glider and a mini-crib. It's fun to dream and offer that heart to the Lord. He really does want to hear. And he really does love to give.
