The M is for Maddox he is still in that room and he needed to be represented for a little bit longer in there, right? I also love the little dresser and nightstand that we got an awesome deal on at World Market. It was their model and had a few scratches on it, nothing old English couldn't handle. They look great with the beds too.
His nightstand that he keeps all of his important things in. His shelf has three other trophies on it that are currently being "polished". I also have 5 real simple black frames that will go on here of pictures of him and paxton some will go on their dresser too.
Above the crib.
Note to self and anyone else who would like to know. Taking pictures at night turn out a lot better than during the day, there is too much light.
Be Smart, Be Clean, Be Grateful, Be Humble, Be True, Be Prayerful
These photos will be added tonight there was too much light in the room and you can barely see anything!
I know I posted this room after we painted it, but over Christmas last year we added a few things. I love how this room has turned out too. It is cozy and with clean lines, that is what I am all about. I must admit the free tv hanging on the wall frees up so much space and I love that! I also got a free curio cabinet from buying our bedroom furniture and I love it so much. I am able to display all of my willow tree people. I love those. There is even light at the top and at night I like to turn that on to admire them all. I am so happy we went with the color we did on the walls. LOVE IT!
I have no idea why I would include the bathroom. It is little and not very decorated and it is a bathroom. At least the kids is cute. But for future purposes here it is. I started doing three different colors and wanted them to fade into each other and after many attempts it is impossible I have decided. So I just went with one color and I really like it. I just put a vase in there and kept with the brown theme that goes along with the main living area. I added a few fancier towels for over the toilet and vase with some twigs and some old frames/photos I have had for a while. Easy and functional...love it!
I will also try to add better pics tonight of this room too!
I wish I would have taken a picture of our basement before all the work started. It was a disaster. Whenever we would have something that I didn't know what to do with it we would just take it down there. Sometimes even a nice toss would do. The basement is like 1500 square feet and the whole things had piles everywhere. It was totally a mess, an organized mess, but still a mess. The people from Clean House would have had a hay day in there. It was slightly embarrassing. I had piles of stuff like donate, keep, take upstairs, store, trash. I took four loads to Goodwill and honestly it should have been more like 10 loads. I do not consider my self a hoarder at all. I like to get rid of things and open up spaces. I do not like clutter anywhere. But that poor basement was all of that. When the guys started our basement they built shelves first in our unfinished part and we were able to pile all the storage bins up onto those...all 40 of them, yes I am embarrassed. They are mostly children's and baby clothes and holiday decorations but still. Then we had to pack everything else in there like a queen size bed, baby beds, furniture, chairs, a table, my crafting and sewing stuff. It was nothing short of a miracle that we got it all done and to fit in the space. We were up till 2 in the morning doing so, but at least it is done. Now I have to figure out what to do with all the stuff I brought up, I have to find a home for it all...not fun. But to say the least it looks great down there. The framing work is all up and was done in a day. The plumbers come in tomorrow to do the tub and sink and toilet. We are moving right along. I just hope this really is all done by the 17th like we have been promised!
