Ava's Room! Finally done!

We finished Ava's room this weekend! yay! I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. It's a little more girly than I thought it would be when we first started but oh well! I was able to use a lot of Chase's old stuff b/c his room was blue and green and her's is pink and green. A little paint, a new crib bumper, and some homemade artwork did the trick. Here are some pictures...I'll start with the progression of the room:

Several weeks ago Preston's mom and dad were here and they were a HUGE help with getting the room painted. Here is Preston and I taping it up to paint.
Mimi taking a turn at the tape.
Papa getting it all primed for painting.
Preston painting pink!
Here's the final room (well...we still have to make the bed back into a crib from a toddler bed but Chase will still need it for when we have company in a few weeks).
Changing table. We have one lonely diaper in the diaper shelves!
Crib and shelves and Lucy.
Chase getting ready to read books to his little sister.
Here's the diaper bag my mom and dad bought me! Thanks guys! Love it!
I mean do we really have this much clothes already? Most is second hand but I'll take all I can get!

Hey, that turned out cute! I'm proud of you for letting go and "pinking out" the room. You're so creative, la, la, la. I'm looking online right now for a giant pink bow-band.

Chase's room looks interestingly familiar ... :) Cute!
