We pushed the full bed over into the corner so we could see more of the room at once and also give ourselves some space for bringing things in & taking things out. You may notice that I didn't finish the top edge of the white paint, and there's a reason for that. The design we're going to lay out will cover up the top edge of the wall, so I didn't see any point in edging it with a nice straight line when I was just going to paint over it eventually. You'll also see the nineties-tastic fan that both of our kids' rooms are sporting, and we hope to replace the fans sometime in the near future with something prettier and more modern, though it will still be a ceiling fan, because we live in TEXAS. Enough said.
I'm LOVING the fabric I ordered from fabric.com for the curtains and some of the bedding and accent pieces. It's a larger chevron print and will go great with our color schemes, whether Mo is a he or a she. I've bought fabric from them several times before and their prices, selection, and quality can't be beat!
I'm sure we will be furniture shopping in the near future for things to fit in this new space, but we'll probably wait until we find out what Mo is before making any final decisions. We like really timeless pieces that have clean, contemporary lines, but I feel like even classic furniture can be swayed to look more male or female. So that's another thing we can start thinking about, but are waiting a bit before making any final decisions.
