the results!!

the before pics..

we put the kids to work removing crayon from the walls... unfortunately there was alot of it. but for the record, WD40 works great!

theMr had to repair quite a bit of the plaster which had crumbled and made holes. not fun!

my mom called me a few weeks ago and asked me if i wanted this bulletin board they were throwing away at her work. i brought it home and figured i'd play around with it and try to make it a little cuter!

i think it turned out pretty well!

the final results!

the bean's bed and dresser!

the princess' new bed! (she's been in the bunk beds with Za)

overall it turned out really well, the girls were thrilled! if i can figure out how to get the video i'll post it. we recorded their reaction. they just kept screaming and hugging us. it was really cute. all in all the whole project only cost around $150 and was done in a weekend! not bad!

So great! I'm glad the girls have such a sweet pad!

That turned out awesome! And how in the world did you only spend $150?!

It makes me want to do my kids rooms so bad! We moved in right before Christmas and then I got pregnant so I haven't been able to do too much with them yet. It's one of the things I'm looking forward to after the baby is born! :)

Do you know what you'll do with Esme when she get's bigger?

Sassy- i actually bought the bedding back in january on after christmas clearance at target for $13 each. so the breakdown was as follows!

bedding (comforters & pillowcases)$36
paint $60
curtains, frames, rug and lanterns$45
peg racks $12 for both

we already had the furniture. i forgot to include the cost of replacing the plaster which was only about $15 because eli can do it himself. not too bad!
