Dillon's room

We are finally done with the baby room, and I am so proud!

My dad and Daniel stripped and stained the dresser to match the crib and changing table.

Daniel's mother made all of our bedding, recovered the chair, made a changing table cover and a diaper stacker. It looks amazing!

My mother helped me decorate with cars and trains, made curtains, and painted the wall plaid. My sister painted picture frames to match the fabric in the bedding. This was truly a family effort! All we need now is a baby!

It really was a family effort, and it looks great! I love the color of the furniture. The refinishing job on the dresser is really impressive.

Amanda Sue, it looks awesome! And makes me jealous. I can't wait to start on our nursery, but we're trying to wait until about 20 weeks to start moving furniture around the house, etc. Everything that's in that room right now (except for the computer) will need to be re-located. Should prove to be fun. :/

amanda - you have to wait, cause otherwise you will run out of things to entertain yourself during the last few weeks of tedium. :)

you can only wash the clothes so many times!

WOW, that is such a great-looking room! I think the colors are wonderful and that plaid wall is amazing. That was done with paint? You and your family should go into business doing that.

I see that bottle is getting really close to the 40 mark, and now you're ready!
