My little girl's room is slowly coming together.  Because it takes this mama forever to finish something, my ideas are always changing a bit which is throwing me a little off track.  I'm slowly getting there, though.  I decided on the wall color....

BM Salisbury Green

It turned out a bit more sage-y than I would have liked, but I think I am going to keep it.  Below is her crib sheet which will be on a white crib.  It was Luke's old crib.  She will not have a crib skirt because she'll be moving into a bed in the not too distant future.  

This Ikea bookshelf will be going in a corner of the room behind a white diamond matelasse slipcovered chair. I probably will put a contrasting color on the backs of the insides of the shelves to lighten things up.  

Ikea Hemnes Bookcase

White Diamond Matelasse Fabric

I am investing in a nice dresser because the dresser that I was stripping will now be placed in our guest room.  I have my eye on a couple.  I can't decide on the finish of the dresser - it's between these three finishes...(remember it's green walls).

 aged white
 french gray
antique natural oak

So, I ordered samples and then will make my decision.  I'm leaning towards either the antique natural oak or aged white.  So, that is where things stand at the moment.  Oh, and if anyone knows a good upholster (in CT/MA), I'd love recommendations.  It appears the one I was going to count on will not work out.  


  1. Can't wait to see it all come together! I am loving the salisbury green!

  2. Isn't it a great feeling when a plan starts to come together? Especially for our kiddos. I've surprised myself with how decisive I've been on Sheila's room (her imaginary room at this point until we move in). This is great Fran and that Salisbury Green is a nice color.

  3. Did you know you can shorten your urls with Shortest and make $$$ for every click on your short links.

  4. I've just downloaded iStripper, so I can have the sexiest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
