I thought once our basement was finished, we'd just move a few pieces of furniture in, and we'd be all set. I didn't realize how much work was still ahead of us. A lot of it is probably work that we don't necessarily have to do, but we might as well. Kaitlyn's room is really coming along, and is looking so cute.
Here is the dresser that I painted today. It used to be a light brown, but that just didn't go in her room. So we painted it black, and got some new silver knobs. We also bought the pink lamp at Ross, and found an old lampshade that we weren't using. Kaitlyn made the little hanging thing that's in the middle when she was visiting my mom one time. It goes perfect in her room.
I was going to buy Kaitlyn a nightstand, and we went to IKEA to look for one. We couldn't find anything that was just right, so we got this way cute bookcase instead (we'll figure something else out for the nightstand).
And, as a bonus today, I'm linking to a beautiful post that I just read: Finding Christmas. If you get a chance, go read it. It's a good thing to think about at the start of the Christmas season.
