Quick post from me today since birthday preparation is in full effect around here! :) The Babe is turning one this weekend, and I fully intend to spend my day spoiling her instead of browsing Pinterest, Facebook, or Twitter... *
*Except during nap time... I fully intend to use this time to feed my internet addiction ;)
If you're a regular reader, then you know I'm blogging progress in The Babe's room makeover real time. You'll get to see exactly how long it takes me to finish her room, and if I hit snags along the way, you'll be the first to know.
I'm happy to report that as of today things are going incredibly well. The big task I completed was cutting out all the fabric panels for her curtains. Next week, The Babe and I are headed out of town to get a little sewing / babysitting help from Granny. I won't be able to blog that progress in real time, though, because Granny doesn't have the internet. Ummmm....yea. I'm not joking. So unless things are going really well and I can drag the gang to "town" 20 minutes away, there won't be any progress updates while I'm away.
Once I get the curtains done, the next big project is the dresser makeover. AND THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. Take a minute here to peruse the curtain fabric, the wall color and a few of my favorite colors. Now, start imagining what color / finish you would give to the antique sideboard I'm going to be using as The Babe's dresser / changing table.
Okay, now that we have the colors in mind, here are a few dresser inspiration pictures I have saved to my pinterest boards.
Do you like any of the inspiration pictures above? Would you go an entirely different route, hello coral-y pink and aqua) like another commenter posted yesterday?
I keep flip flopping between something "traditional" (white, light gray) or something a bit more funky (dark gray, turquoise, coral-y, etc). BUT right now, I'm leaning towards a dark gray base coat with a top glaze / light brush strokes of turquoise.
Now, what say you?! I'm going to use your comments to help make my decision. Please leave me a comment below or on my Facebook page so I can see what you recommend.
Have a fabulous weekend!!
