Simon's new room - WIP

I painted Simon's room Benjamin Moore's light khaki. I love it (photo #2 is the best for seeing the actual wall colour without it appearing yellowish - like the old wall colour was). Right now he is having a nap in his bed. His very first time sleeping somewhere other than his crib. He didn't even try to get out of his bed once - I lay him down and I left his room before he fell asleep. Such a good boy. Not sure yet if we'll try him in his bed overnight tonight. His crib is in Isabella's room while we ponder this big decision...

Anyway, I put the tolix chair in the corner till we can afford something else - ideally an Eames rocker but we'll see. Kim picked up a black sheepskin from Homesense for the floor next to the bed yesterday (have to get it this week). The red buffalo plaid on his bed is a piece of fleece that I am going to use to make bunting for his tree (next weekend). The tree is so bare right now. I love how his room turned out. I'll take more pictures when the tree is done. Next project is our bedroom...

  6. Thanks y'all!

    Jen - nap was a total success! He didn't fall out and when he woke up, he just sat up and babbled - didn't even try to get out. SO, his crib is now in storage and hopefully tonight is as easy as his nap was or else the crib is coming back out. :)

  10. Just visited your blog for the first time. I am enjoying reading all of your posts! I saw your son's tree. I did one for my daughter's room. She loves it!! How are you going to do the leaves? I am not sure if this is appropriate blog etiquette but I have my daughter's tree on my blog if you want to see how I did hers. It's the first post that I ever did if that helps.

    I look forward to following your blog in the future!

  11. Hi there Vikki! I'm not going to do leaves on my son's tree - I'm going to make bunting to hang from the branches made out of red buffalo plaid. I want it to look like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/58176377/vintage-wool-banner

    Your daughter's tree is so cool!
