after






Here are pics of the aftermath of the maternal storm of creativity and hard work that is grandma and mom!!

We are short a headboard, but it will hopefully be shipped here within the next 2 weeks. It was definitely labor, but a labor of love! It will be so fun to see her face when she sees it for the first time! Yay!

She will have her new room just in time to usher in 14. Hopefully this will last for many years to come!

Hey Laurie! Great job on the room. I love looking at before and after pics. I peek at your blog every now and again to see what's going on in your world. Love you! -- Janel (aka Nellie)

Hi Nellie! (That's funny you wrote that; I still think of you as little Nellie!!) Thanks for the comment. I check in with your blog, too. Your girls are beautiful! Love you, too, and take care! Laurie

Oh Riley and I are related for sure with those before pics! Ha. Love what you guys did to her room. Did she go out of her mind? Has the stereo headboard came in yet? Can't wait to see a pic of it. LOVE YOU

Nope on the stereo headboard...I'm (im)patiently waiting. I shouldn't have published those before pics! Yikes! She had been getting ready for her trip and I should have known better than to snap a pic down there at that time. She is excited about it and seems to really like it. Whew!

Wow Laurie! Want to come down to Houston and help me with some room make overs?

Joanie! I would love it! I'm sure your before pics look nothing like ours, though...doesn't her room remind you of mine growing up?! ARGH!
