The Grandchildren Are Coming..................

With it being spring break time here in the south, that means....................the grandchildren are coming for a visit. They were out for spring break on different weeks so we were lucky enough to have the 18 month old for two weeks.  Back several months ago I decided I wanted to move the 11 year old into a different room and redo it for him. So I have been collecting everything for the room and then started working on it. My husband and daughter helped me put the finishing touches on the room last week so it would be ready for Logan when he arrived. I apologize in advance for the lousy lighting in the pictures!

This is a picture of the finished room:

The drapes are actually shower curtains that I found online at West Elm . They are exactly what I was looking for. Because they are only 72 inches tall, hanging them with rope was the perfect solution.  I found the light tan bed skirts online at Overstock.com .  Because the bed in the center has drawers underneath the mattress, there was no need to skirt that bed. I appliqued Logan's pillowcase with his name in El Paso Font. He loved it.


In this picture you can see the copper rods my husband made out of copper pipe that he found at Lowe's. He and my son had to cut the pipe and piece it together to get the length I needed. This is a large set of windows and I couldn't find much less afford custom made rods to fit. I used the buttonholes in the shower curtains to run the rope through and hang on the rod. Pretty cute, right? On the wall you can see the "turners" that we attached with the same type rope we used on the drapes. I found the "turners" at Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta. Cool, right?



My daughter and I went shopping while she was here and we found this cool rope lamp at T.J. Max. Honestly, I can't remember where we found the long leg bird but I had to purchase it. We have a bird that looks just like it on our pond.


Lastly, I just had to include my curious cat, Toby, checking out the room redo and making sure he can still see the birds on the feeders below.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of the room redo. It is finally finished and I love it.
