ellie's new room!

the view from the door.

it's finished! i painted the baseboards yesterday before church, and david, delana and kylah helped move everything in, arrange it and hang it up this afternoon. i had a slight scare at 1 a.m. last night when i pulled the tape off the floor from having painted the baseboards and the finish came up. there was a perfect tape line of stripped wood floors around the perimeter of the room. i was royally ticked. but kylah and i set in to cover it this afternoon with finish we found in the garage, and, surprisingly, it covered beautifully and easily. it only took us about 20 minutes. thank goodness. i kept thinking about it every time i woke up last night. so annoying. but everything is up and in its place. the only thing we still might do is a mirror tile collage above the purple table 'cause the kid loves to look at herself in the mirror. it's really quite cute. i love the room because it's so big and feels like a room you hang out and play in, not just a cozy little baby nursery. perfect for my big girl!

so... do you like it?! (set your mouse on each picture for a caption.)
