The great Bed Switcharoo

It is almost time to start the great potty training of the boys.....SOOOO...that leads to them sleeping in BIG BOY beds....I know I know why do it before the time is here....pretty much shooting myself in the foot with naps but whatdya do? We have twin beds for them but Taylor was using one so that means she got a new BIG bed too!! This is her new big bed. This bed switching has turned into quite the project for momma...(only because I wanted it to be though!)...I made Taylor's bedskirt and appliqued the pillows and refinished the headboard (which you can't really see because of the great pillows-but it is great it also has polka dots). Anyway her bed project was finished yesterday and she was so excited to sleep on a BIG princess bed...and she slept like a princess too!! I have a couple more decor things that I want to make for her walls and when I get those all done I will post pics of those too! But for now here is the bed. Her walls are bright purple so the bright green comforter looks so cute.



I love the way it turned out and can't wait to get the boys' beds done now!! Just wait till you see those! I am making their comforters and have some ideas for some fun decor for their walls!! I LOVE PROJECTS!!!!
Speaking of projects....here is another project we are working on...and it is going to be SO great too! For mother's day Kirk and the kids surprised me with an antique dining table and chairs. It was one I had found on KSL and had been drooling over for a little while. We think it was built in the 20's or 30's, but it is still in really great condition.




I just LOVE the chairs! And to make them even greater my dad found some leather that he has had for YEARS (probably from a moose he killed back in the day) and it is gorgeous and he is going to let us have it to reupholster the chair bottoms!! Our plan is to paint it black and I can hardly wait!! We got the paint stripped off the table this weekend so now we just need to do the 6 chairs. Kirk has a buddy that is a carpenter and he is going to do a new table top out of hard wood for us and help us paint it and sturdy everything up. Whatdya think? Great right?

Oh and you can see Taylor's headboard in the background there...also a fun project!!! I got to breakout the table saw for that one...I added the beadboard panel to the inside before I painted it..it totally updated it!! Not bad for $15!!! Well that is what the Chuggs are working on in a nutshell...more pics to come as we go!!!

The things you are able to accomplish are amazing! The table is very cute, I can't wait to see the "after" photos. Your bedding is great also. Just where do you get all the ideas?
