It has been several months since I posted about Eli's room makeover. A few of my readers have asked how it looks and I would love to post some amazing pics of a complete room but....I can't. It is done enough that Eli is living in it (and LOVING it) but there are too many details missing to be truly done.
Back in June, the kids and I took a road trip for the day to bust up to Minneapolis to pick up Eli's new Malm bed, and some curtains. It was quite the trip with just the 3 of us. We woke up bright and early, hit the road, rocked it out at Ikea, and then I took the kids to the Mall of America to the Lego Store and American Girl. We were home by 9pm. It was a great adventure!
The Done List
-Bed put together
-Bedding washed and on bed
-All of Eli's stuff moved in
-Shark head on wall
-Other wall decor up
-New Pella windows installed
Still To Do
-Figure out closet doors and install
-Put up curtain rods
-Iron and hem curtains
-Purchase Lego minifigure display shelf
-Hang Lego shelf
-Hang other wall decor
-Get board for bed so mattress sits lower
-New ceiling fixture (the old one doesn't fit the decor at all but this will probably wait for awhile)
I have been scared to death to do the curtains. I am incredibly intimidated about painting them but I NEED to do it. I threw them in the wash tonight to prep them for hemming. I hope to get them ironed and hemmed tomorrow and get the lines measured and taped off. I might need some moral support the day I paint them. Eeeeeek!
I can't bring myself to post pics until the curtains are up...so hopefully it will be next week that I can post some pics.
