Both of my children have rooms that are works in progress! Retty is only (almost) 8 months old, so I guess I can cut myself some slack that it is taking forever to pull his room together (not sure what my excuse is for big sister’s room..she’ll be 3 this summer). Still to be done are some curtains (that aren’t girly white eyelet numbers from Mommy’s childhood bedroom), a dresser (still not set on wood finish, olive paint, or a combination of both…..plus I still need to find a dresser!), remove piles of clothes from the floor (and put in said dresser), paint electrical outlet covers to match the walls (the white shiny ones are really U-G-L-Y), continuing collecting owl or woodland themed cuties and vintage boy items to accessorize!
Now that we’ve gone over what hasn’t been done, here’s a preview of my favorite things that have!

|Check out baby boy’s current curtains. I really need to get on some new ones.|
|Remember the artwork from here? Yup, they finally made it on the wall yesterday.|

|Hoo, Hoo, Hoo you lookin at?|
I can’t wait to get the rest of the elements in place! Time to get going………
