New Furniture!

I got an ottoman at a yard sale yesterday for 5 bucks. It was very ugly with a few layers of fabric covering it and a dark stain with white trim. I don't have pictures of it like that because I was in too much of a hurry to get started. But, trust me, it was UGLY. I decided to "rehab" it for Ella's room and I love how it turned out I couldn't be any happier. I even added little tufting buttons or what have you which was something I had never done before. Anyway, here are the pictures of it sitting pretty in her room.

The floor is still covered in sawdust from all the baseboard/molding work being done in the hallway. Don't mind it.

And more pictures of her room just for fun...

I got the pink buckets at the 99 cent store and the lace ribbons from a belt at the Dollar Tree. Yes, a belt. It had 6 different kinds braided together.

I painted and glued fabric into this basket for her diapers.

Christopher's Finished Room!

Christopher's room is all finished and just in time to put all the new stuff he got for his birthday away. We bought him a toy box for his birthday.

His birthday was nice. Just family. We did the whole Cars theme again this year because he's just so crazy about that movie. I bought him a Car cake because I wanted to eat store buttercream frosting.

I also made his pinata. Which was completely INSANE. I was up until 2:30, the day of the party, decorating it. I just wish I would have gotten a better picture of it.
