Late last night I was hanging pictures and adjusting quilts. Trying to figure out where this and that will go. So, as of 8:15 this morning, this is what we got.

There is still a lot of little things that need homes. The rest of our apartment is still super messy, so I'm sure this is not the final version, but it's pretty close, I'd say.

I love it. I loved their old room too. But I love the new one. Love the colors, love the photos on the wall, love how clean it looks (for now). Though Isaac did his best to bless the room with a long scribble of red crayon while we were working on it. Oh that boy.

Big HUGE thank you's to Emily, Rob, Kirsten, Eric, Tess, Caitlin and Niff for their help! Hooray for friends!

And now? I think there is a holiday coming up that I really like celebrating.
Bring it!

It looks fantastic! I love that green colour.

It looks absolutely beautiful! Lucas has declared that green is a Grinch color but there's nothing Grinch-y about that room! Where will that beautiful firehouse quilt end up going?

And how do the boys like their bunks?

Good work, team! Operation Bedroom Redo a HUGE success!

I love the colours in the boys new room - that green is so fresh and looks wonderful with the blue in the quilts too. I bet they love it! x

Bet those boys love the bunk beds! It looks so lovely and clean and fresh. You've worked so hard, I hope they don't destroy it too quickly (are you listening, Isaac ....!)
