It's been a lengthy process but it's finally done ! This summer, my hubby and I decided it was time for little bug to move out of the nursery. The room was needed quite a bit of work, we had to gut part of it to add insulation, then of course came the new wallboard, the trim, paint, closet overhaul. Since we both work full time, all of this had to be done on evenings and weekends. Finally a few days ago, we shipped Her Sweetness to Aunt Joan for a Saturday, installed her new bed and moved her furniture to the new room. There are still a couple of details to be taken care of (drapes, knobs, hanging a couple of things to the walls) but Christmas preparations have put those on hold for a little while.

Just in case you are wondering, yes I handpainted all the walls, partly based the flowers on pictures I took at the end of the summer
Welcome, welcome to Pixie Hollow!
where our own little fairy now resides
Surrounded by wispy clouds, butterflies
She now has a reading/play nook under her bed
I think she likes it
A couple of girlfriends asked me to paint their kids' bedroom... I got to think about this for a while.
