Whew! Our former home office is now a masterpiece in white and lilac. Not only did we clear out the junk and paint the walls, but we had the carpets cleaned as well. We have the perfect backdrop for a superb big girl room. She can use her current toddler bed, we got a new blue dresser from Ikea, and now we have the task of finding just the right rug, curtains, and bookcase to make things really sing. I remember how much fun it was to get a new room (thanks Mom!) and I really hope she will enjoy it was well.
Once she's all settled into her new digs, I'm closing the door on the nursery in hopes of making it go out of mind a little bit. Then, when she's otherwise occupied, we'll go in and move everything around a bit. The whole idea is to make her think of it as just a room that we give to the baby instead of HER room that the baby invades. It's a nice theory right? Wish us luck.
