Here's what we're currently working with. Mind you... this was after a giant toy purge. It's very light and soft and baby-ish. I admit.
The bed is her Crib-for-Life. And honestly, I'm kinda hoping it's life would end. I'm a little tired of the light wood and huge foot board. If I can get up the nerve to part with it, this sucker may hit Craig's List soon. The name letters are the same ones I made for her when I was still pregnant. And, since we are renting, the walls need to stay as they are... the lightest shade of pink... almost white.
Yes, this is clean. To say we have a storage problem would be a good assumption. I don't mind the dresser, but the shelves need a do-over. They no longer display a few pretty things. They just collect all things now. The hamper is falling apart (the lid was eaten long ago by the dog) and that giant mass of paper in the corner is all the school/daycare papers we've deemed worthy to keep over the years. They look fabulous, don't they :)
Don't be alarmed. That's not an animal. Just fake princess hair hanging out in the doll house.
This dresser was a Craig's List find and is full of dress up. I think this one could use a paint job. Those pillow shams are always there. They only make it onto the pillows if people are coming over. You guys don't count. Ha.
So there ya have it. I've got lots of little plans and projects in my head and she's already picked out new bedding and 4 cans of purple and pink spray paint. I'm hoping by her birthday (October) the big girl transformation will be complete and I'll like it too. :) Stay tuned. I'm anticipating an uphill battle.
One more thing... Does anyone else's kid hoard like mine??? There's this...
I haven't been under the bed yet. I'm sure there's a few more "treasures" waiting for me there too!
