Its done, its finally done!

A while back I decided to work on something personal about myself that I admit I have a bit of a problem with. If the truth be told sometimes I am guilty of starting projects but not quite finishing them... So about six months ago when we bought a big boy bed for Max I decided that I was going to redecorate his room AND that I would not start any other major projects until I was done with it. So I started looking around for ideas and stumbled upon this cute robot fabric, which I made into a quilt. The quilt was the inspiration for the rest of the room which I think turned out pretty darn cute.





I'm especially proud of his bed.

because I built it and finished it all by myself.

I got the plans for Max's bed here. Ana does a great job of making things simple and do-able on her site. I can't wait to build something else.

THe trim around the ceiling was also kind of an adventure, I had a picture in my brain of what I wanted it to look like, but every time I tried to explian it to someone they loked at me like I was nuts. I also had a hard time finding the right shape to go on the trim. Finally I came upon something that worked... googly eyes.
They looked pretty strange before they were painted, but after a coat of silver paint and they turned out perfect.
