painting the room with the rodenbergs in august (remember this photo... when i promised the "after" photos?) well, it's taken some time, but here they are:
the room & dresser set now:
the framed puzzle is from a modeling job that lexi & tashi did in japan when they were 4 & 5 years old. the hot pink night stand used to be that scary late 60's cream & gold (as seen above).
here's the low boy with it's mirror. the final step in this room make-over project is to get some black & white photos into those darling frames on the dresser. we have some fun ones in mind, like my grandma as a baby with her 5 year old sister gracie, and my grandparents as newlyweds riding a tandem bicycle....and some fluffy white rugs on the floor. the carpet isn't our favorite, but it stays for now. because if we replaced it with the balck & white tiles we would love, our inexpensive thrifty room re-do would no longer be thrifty & inexpensive.
