Taaa Daaa.......

The ever so lovely BEFORE shot!!!

Here it is...finally in Emmie's room and an amazing transformation is complete, well almost since I have no cushion on top yet but found out the quilt that came with our crib bedding folded in 1/2 is a perfect fit!! SCORE, I don't have to shell out $$ for fabric! I have some foam already and hopefully can figure out how to sew the quilt around it like a pillowcase or my wonderful lovely neighbor (hint hint Janine!!) will help me out!!! Savannah truly did EAT HER WORDS!!!!!!!!!!! She is already wanting a window seat for her own room and I quote "Mom I didn't know it would look like that & be so pretty when you were done!!" Music to my ears & an important life lesson learned for my almost 6 year old...don't just a book by its cover, first impressions are not everything!!

The much improved AFTER shot!!!
I was in LOVE with one of the other knobs I had posted but could not justify spending close to $40 for 4 knobs I would be putting on a roadside freebie ;) So I found these for under $15 for all 4 & they were the winner!

Our kitty seems to approve of this new spot too!
