I was in need of some change around here.  I totally get it from my mom.  Every few months, she would rearrange the furniture in the dining room, living room, front porch, where ever.  Not all at once of course.  It was great because it gave you the opportunity to find things you have lost, vacuum under the furniture and clean out the cobwebs in the corners.  Afterward, you have what seemed like a brand new room and you didn't even have to buy anything!  Brilliant!

So on this rainy stay-at-home mom Monday, I chose the boy's room for a transformation.  I have been gathering some things for a more sophisticated, bigger boy room.  Something with a more worldly feel and darker colors.

Silly me, I didn't take a pic before I starting ripping things apart, tearing decals off walls, moving furniture like I was an Olympic weight-lifter.  But I did find these pics from last winter.

I realize this is only one corner of the room but this is the corner I took a picture of after the redo today.

He still sleeps in his crib so that is in the corner of the room that is to the right of this pic.  Also, I think the hubs would literally stand paralyzed in the room from not knowing were to change and dress the boy so the changing table had to stay in the room for now.  I guess this will have to be done in stages as he slowly does not need his baby things anymore.  I don't have a great picture of the headboard, but it was a St Vinny's find for only $7.50!  I love it because it can hold books, a lamp and also allow me to decorate the top- perfect!  I can just imagine all the nights of laying down and reading books before bedtime!
