The new carpet was installed the week before last, and it’s like walking on a cloud. We wasted no time in putting Ellie’s room together, and I posted some photos at Flickr. The room is not entirely finished… I still have to paint her dresser, put up curtains/blinds, find a better slipcover for the chair and some long curtains to act as the closet “door.” But this is definitely a huge improvement over the stark, bare room we had before.
I’m especially enjoying the quilt/pillow set we purchased from littlelegwarmers.etsy.com (always happy to support a talented Maine artist) and the colors we chose make the room bright and cheery. Even better, miss Ellie has taken to it well… we had a couple rough nights but now she’s back on her regular schedule and happy with her pretty purple room.
We’re expecting lovely weather this weekend… I think it’s time for a trip to the coast and some thrift shopping!
