With the arrival of our 4th girl in just 9 days, you better believe I've been nesting like crazy.
Living on a farm, I realize that nesting is just a normal part of life for humans and animals alike.
Something happens when a woman is expecting a baby- whether in the womb or through adoption.
We fluff our nests, clean like crazy, re-organize, craft, paint, and find ourselves tackling projects we've put off for months all because a little one is about to grace us with their presence.
One of many projects we've tackled is converting Kaylyn's room into a room for her and Laney Rae to share. They were sharing her full bed, but let's just say that one of these girls sleeps a little on the crazy side (bet you can't guess which one) so two twin beds were in order.
My sister found the perfect twin beds at a gigantic antique sale for a bargain. We painted them a watermelon pink to match all of the pillows and linens that my friend and designer, Holly, had given us for Kaylyn's original room.
The other two pieces of furniture that are new in the room, is the great pink shelf my friend, Robyn, purchased at a garage sale and the white double locker I picked up at Warrenton this past year.
And let me just mention the monkey on Laney Rae's bed. My friend, Kirby, made that for Laney Rae along with 7 other kiddos in our homeschool group. It has become a favorite of Laney Rae's and she sleeps with it every night. I'm so thankful that it happens to be adorable and sentimental.
Do I have some great friends and family or what? I love that there are so many things in this room that were given to us or found for a great price with this room in mind.
**side note: You should go check out each of the lady's blogs mentioned above. They don't disappoint when it comes to "all things cute". Promise.
The prints above their bed are from Sarah & Abraham that used to be in the schoolroom.
I've gabbed long enough.
Here are photos of the finished product of the girls room that they now share.
More nesting projects to follow.
