Carson's Room

Her bed is finally done! With no plans actually written down I can't believe we accomplished it. Oh, and by "we" I mean Vernon built it and I painted it haha. Either way, it's done and it's awesome! Carson was a little freaked out at first but she is definitely loving it now. We also scored on a small table and chair for underneath. Now she will have a real writing space to do all of her creations. Here's a picture of the set we got from Goodwill for a total of $18!

We primed it and then painted it a nice bright color that matches everything else.
You'll have to wait to see what color!
There's Vernon with a little spray priming action shot.

I just realized that I didn't take an after shot of the table and chair set. I'll have to take it this weekend when we move it into her room. We also found a nice, big, sturdy bookshelf and the CHKD Thrift Store for $20. We didn't buy it though =\ It looked kinda big and bulky to Vernon and now that I think about it he was right. I have recently found a great bookshelf on another blog that I am interested in. Maybe that's a project we'll tackle this weekend. But here are the pictures of us installing the bed in her room.

 When all else fails, just straddle it.
 She's so proud of it and so excited!

Nice little hangout spot!
