Ellie's New Bedroom Set

I was surprised to say the least that Elisabeth asked for her room to be painted for her birthday present. What 3 year old wants that? She has been asking to have her room painted since I was pregnant with Nathan and painted his room. I've been wanting to make her room look a little more like a little girl's room and not a baby room and so we've been looking around for a couple of weeks trying to decide what to do. We found an affordable bedding set that was on a good sale at Target a couple of weeks ago. The sheets that matched the set were out, however, we found the Circo brand of sheets that has polka dots on it and they look awesome too! I've been looking for a nightstand and found what I liked at the Getaway in Payson. They didn't have it in stock and so they ordered it for us. I took Jake along with me and since its pretty likely that I won't be going to Seattle this summer for work and taking the family with me, we decided to use the money that was put on that for a new bedroom set. We bought the dresser that has the mirror, the nightstand, and the bed. We figured that Nathan needs new furniture too and that we will just give Ellie's old stuff to him and sand it down and refinish it when I make him a BYU room in a couple of years. Our plan is to paint Ellie's room a pale yellow.

The quilt we found at Target:

The bookshelf I purchased to go above Ellie's bed for her bedtime stories:

We probably won't get around to painting her room until after I come back from Tennassee, but it all depends on when the furniture is going to come. Since everything is beige in the room at the moment, we are going to have to paint the floor boards, ceiling, and doors white. We'll also have to paint all of the walls the yellow. I think it will look good when we are done though.

That is so fun. I love the bedroom set. Maryn now has a white toddler bed and white dresser too. It makes her seem so grown up to have those things. You'll have to take pictures when it is all done. When I finally get some things on Maryn's walls I'll take pictures too.

I think that it is a 3 yr old thing beacuse Allie wants her room painted pink and purple. That bedroom set is so cute.
