A blank canvas...

... just waiting for Amanda's personal touches to make it oh-so-special!

The bedroom in Amanda's new apartment is just beautiful with its oversized windows, soft grey walls, white trim, and wood floors...

I wonder what's in these boxes, waiting to be assembled?

Looks like it's the full-sized bed from IKEA... You and daddy start assembling it and I'll take the pictures :)

Looking good, honey!

You and daddy did a great job! I think Daddy and I should get one just like it - it's soooo pretty!!!!

Okay, time to call it quits for the night. We got off to a late start here today because were finishing up at Court's apartment earlier...
Day 2
So what's on the agenda for today?

Of course - the IKEA cube bookcase!

Fast forward several hours and some harrowing moments and it looks great! Amanda's now busy screwing in a leg on the white desk from Wal-Mart that will serve as her painting table.

Luckily this little beauty didn't need any assembly! It was a freebie we found on the side of the road while heading to a doctor's appointment last month... Talk about being in the right place at the right time... Amanda's going to use this for her laptop and printer...

I love the locking drawers and the old hardware... So pretty! Okay, we're done for today... Tomorrow all the fun stuff gets moved in... decorations, clothes, artwork, painting supplies, etc., so tomorrow I'll share pictures of the finished room, but until then, here's a sneak peek of the decor...

A vintage (unfinished) painting of bluejays Amanda purchased (from ETSY) as well as this canvas tree print from The Christmas Tree Shop... Have you guessed the theme yet?

You folks are sure busy with all this. All that's behind me, thank goodness! It's fun though. I can't believe you found that desk on the side of the road. I never seem to come across free goodies like that!

Love the bed and the blue bird print. Can't wait to see it all finished up!

I just got caught up reading all your posts since I've been gone.

The apt is wonderful and the decor is perfect! Birds! Just like mommy! LOL

The wedding looked wonderful. Sounds like you had a great time. To bad about the rain though. I thought of you when I was in Boston.

Now that I'm home I'm hit with the wood floors being put in and now we have added painting to the list. So there are paint samples all over the place. LOL

I think I need another vacation already! LOL

I'm planning on going to New York again in Spring and making a trip to Boston. I didn't get to see the Freedom Trail while I was there. So maybe we can meet up then?

What a pretty bed. Love the white.
Looks like a nature theme. Guess I'll have to stay tuned, huh?
