Finn's room

well i'm finally getting a chance to show pics of finn's new room!! it took 2 long days of painting & repairing walls till it was finished. if you see in the pic below there is no curtain. what we're going to to is get some molding that matches his window sill & we're going to frame his window with that molding. it'll look so nice when that's done.

the color is called misty surf. it's a cross between a gray & a light blue. in natural light is looks more gray and in the artificial light it looks more blue. but i have to say i LOVE this color! it's so clean looking. dan also put 2 coats of white paint on the beadboard(which was already there) and all the trim. right now finn has the nicest room in the house!

here is his new twin bed. well, new to us. i found the bed with the matching nightstand at a local used furniture shop right down the road. my neighbor down the street actually owns it. i prefer to buy used furniture. i feel like it's better quality & i prefer some character. :)

we put just a mattress on the bed right now, no box springs. this way its low to the ground for a while. we will eventually add the box spring though. i got to say finn LOVES his new bed!

this was his existing dresser. one day we'll maybe find one that matches...
and this was dan's grandmother's rocking chair. i've always had it in finn's room.

the paintings above the nightstand are ones my father painted when he was in college. i painted both the frames a nice white so match.

i made his bulletin board before finn was even born for his room. i've always liked the primary colors of red and blue. the railroad sign is from his dede(dan's mom), a bday present. and the bookcase i painted white to match also.

this little lantern came in the mail monday from llbean. it's awesome b/c it comes with a remote. so this is finn's new night light. once he's asleep i can click it off without having to go in his room. LOVE IT!

finn's doing really great all in all in the transition to big boy room. for the 1st week he would wake up at night & start playing. he takes the drawers out of his nightstand, turns them over, and stands on it to turn his light on. dang kid!
but this week has been much better! he's going to bed much easier & taking his naps easier also. and now he's actually sleeping in the bed like a normal person. head on pillow & feet towards the bottom.

i'm very happy with his room & am proud of the hard work dan & i put into it. :)
