Well weekend before last, Hubs said we could go check out this sale. It was an outlet, so everything was scratch and dent, but who cares when you are buying the furniture for a child? They are going to scratch and dent it over the years anyway. Within a few hours of entering the store, Little Bean had a whole new bedroom set. Since we had taken my car instead of his truck, we weren't able to pick it up until the following day, which worked great for me because I had to get Little Bean's room ready for the new digs.
I spent the entire day that Sunday taking down the convertible crib, moving out her old dresser and night stand, and cleaning up her room. By the end of the day, her new room was all almost all put together. I had to buy a couple of other things to complete the room, which we did over this weekend. Now the room is totally fit for my little princess.
|Saying goodbye to the crib|
|Enjoying the last time she would have so much space|
|All of this is going away!|
|The bookshelf and little table are the only things staying|
|Goodbye crummy dresser - into mom's closet with you!|
|On the new Princess Carriage bed, also known as Little Bean's "Ride" (Her name for it, not ours)|
|The new Princess Nightstand, complete with writing desk|
|The new Princess Dresser|
|Her first night in her Big Girl Bed|
|The finishing touches!|
|This was the first time she had seen the canopy. I put it together while she was in the bath.|
|Checking out all of the princess stickers on the walls|
|More Princess stickers!|
|Yes, she really was this excited!|
|Sleeping in her "ride" under "the tent."|
In retrospect, is it ironic that Hubs finally let us get the bedroom set, or was it his intuition speaking to him?
