Little Red Chair

I bought this chair a year ago in Spokane for $3.  Feb 2011 00061

I don't think I had a plan in mind for it, I guess that is why it has sat out in the shed for a year!  Well I was finally inspired by one of Jenna’s purchases at Ikea this past week:jens red chair

(I don't think this is the exact chair she bought, but it is still cute like hers)

When the girls had Presidents day off we went to work.  Ashley and I put three coats of red on this cute little chair and it goes so nicely in her room!

I'm glad it finally has a home!

A Trip Full of Inspiration!

I took an overnighter trip with some of my SIL’s to the great Salt Lake Valley to pick up some new furniture and to get some more inspiration ideas.  Here is the starting point for the boys room (currently Claire’s room) 

I LOVE the stars, we are going to kind of keep the star, cowboy, rustic theme.  Mostly blues and their dresser/changing table is red.  I picked up the down comforter and duvet cover this weekend and need to get going on the star quilt.  I also have to make Justin’s headboard for it all to go on! 

I am debating on using the white crib or the wood crib.  I think I will stain Justin's headboard (instead of painting it) so the wood crib will match better, but I will need to see once I get it all together.  My big hold up now is paint color, I can NOT decide on a color for this room.  I don't want brown, which I think would be the best, I want it lighter, any ideas?  I don't want light blue, I was thinking maybe a gold color, but you can go really wrong with gold.  I have a sample painted on the wall already that is proof of that!  The kids thought it looked like throw up, sorry to be gross, but I had to agree!  Anyway I loved this little storage  piece from Hobby Lobby, it has grey trim, maybe I should go grey in their room?Feb 2011 00055

It is so rustic and fun!  I like the wood with the grey, surely I could make this right?  Anyway…..I have to get going with paint soon, I need to start finish getting baby gear ready and don't have a place to put it yet. Too many choices!
