no boys allowed!

I was putting off posting pictures of the kids' rooms until they were finished but well, let's face it, that's not gonna happen anytime soon. So I'll show you the progress we've made so far.

Ellie loves her new room and has taken to her big girl bed like a pro.

This room is what I like to call Pottery Barn on a budget. I couldn't imagine (let's be honest, afford) forking over the money for the bedskirt that went with the bedding. It was practically the same price as the quilt! Yes, it was absoultely adorable but come on PB, it's just a bedskirt! So I found this pink one at Target for $20.

There are plans for a canopy over the top part of the bed. Once Kyle has time to recreate this, the bed will no longer look like it needs a headboard. I found some old door knobs at ReStore that we will paint and use to hold the material in place.

Kyle created these trees after I showed him some Pottery Barn tree decals that were $90 a piece. As if! I found some scrapbook stickers to finish them off. Let's hope curious little hands leave them alone.

This lonely little Ikea table and chairs need some friends! Eventually, we will add a white night stand, dresser and vanity. She has a large closet with drawers so she doesn't need the extra storage just yet. And like the boys' room, I want to add a blackout roman shade to her window.

16 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

What an adorable room! I wish I had a girl so something in our house could be pink!!! But alas, I'm wayyyyy outnumbered!

How clean it is!

Give Dad the photos of what furniture you want and I am sure he will make it... he does anything for his girls! He needs some projects to build!!!

You have always been so artistic! I remember us sitting in Algebra III (what were we thinking?) and you would be drawing the cutest pictures! I guess you could say that Algebra III class is finally paying off! It certainly hasn't for me!

PS. Ellie's trees are SO much cuter than the PB decals!

Can't you make some money doing this? Just think of all those rich people in Tulsa with no creativity.
