One down, four more to go

I have finally finished Ashton's room, well almost anyways.  I wanted a room that wasn't to babyish and that I would not have to change for a really long time.  I found his bed on KSL last fall and I refinished it and I am loving how it turned out. 
I have always loved the pottery barn look so that was what I kind of had in mind with the bed and the bedding, I found his quilt at The Village Quilt shop and I bought his sheets at Target. I really wanted to get some sheets from Pottery Barn but they were $50 verses the $20 I paid for the ones at Target.




I was originally going to paint his room a blue but I couldn't find a color that I loved.  Then I decided I should do something a little more neutral, and I love how it came out.  It makes the room seem so much brighter. 


I have to wait 3 more weeks till I can take out his little toddler bed.  I guess I don't have to wait, but I am so that his head has some more time to heal.  He has never fallen out of bed so I don't think that he will fall out, but I think of these things now so we are waiting. 


I still need to get some curtains, I am thinking I want some roman shades, but I can't decided what color the curtains should be.  I don't know if I want red or blue I can't decide.
It feels good to have one room done.  Now I can work on some of the other projects I have going.  I did get the upstairs bathroom painted yesterday, now I just need to get some new trim, and get the finishing touches up.  Then it is onto our bedroom the kitchen and the bathroom downstairs.

How fun, I want to redo all of the rooms in my house. I like how clean and neat it looks, just like Pottery Barn!
