The bed had to be built in 5 sections to be able to get it up the windy stairs, which was still not so easy! Thank goodness for family! This was all one piece and the 1st section. This was a good base to start from because we had the measurements right for the twin mattress. I say we because I was the designer but Brandon did most of the work! Then we attatched an old door horizontally to the back of the bed for the 2nd section. The third section was the sides. They were built from 2x4's to form the square then covered with sheets of wood and filled in to look like one chunky piece. Then the last section was built to sit on top of the other sections at the end. On April 24th Brandon was out working on the bed while I was inside cutting hair and I heard screaming.. Next thing I know....
I love the storage underneath for her books and babies!
Land of Nod. She got it from my mom for her birthday!
After 6 months, 3 surgeries and at least 10 pins, Brandon was only off work for 5.5 weeks total! He was such a trooper! He got released at the first of this month and we are so excited to return to the "new normal". Normal for me... not quite normal for Brandon. This is what his hand looks like now.
This was my dresser when I was in school. I re-did it for Addi when we moved into this house and I added the tulle today. I hate that new handles are at least 5 bucks a pop. The tulle makes it girly and probably didn't even cost a dollar! My mom made her the quilt for her babies, but I snagged it for her dresser:) hehe. The boxes are just unfinished covered in scrapbook paper, flowers, and ric-rac.
The fabric piece on the wall was sewn in strips, then wrapped around a piece of cardboard and pinned. I added the chipboard covered in scrapbook paper and the fabric flowers.. (the sewing credit all goes to my mom!) The chair was re-painted along with the dresser. It was green when it was in Stryders nursery. My mom sewed the cushion to match her crib bedding she made. The dollhouse was in a previous post. Don't you love my cute little doggy curled up? She follows me everywhere I go!
