6   Y E A R S   A G O  ! ?

......................................................................
Hard to believe it's been 6 years since we completed our huge kitchen and bathroom renovation!
It still looks pretty amazing and i'd do it exactly the same if given another chance.

here are some shots of the headboard in progress. we covered a plywood form with organic
cotton batting (doubled up) and then covered it all with the drapery fabric. the finishing
touch are the fabric covered buttons. sweet!

M has had her pink big girl bed for a few months now..but we realized as we were 
reading bedtime book number 246 that a comfy soft headboard is in order. after searching
a few goofy pinterest boards and how-to videos we got to work. we used the same drapery
fabric from Ikea that we used on her windows (though now discontinued....i never though
i'd ebay an ikea item!).

the toughest part was finding some padding or batting that isnt foam. i really try not to use
any kind of toxic off gassing foam on things in her room. she doesn't need to be spending
12 hours a night inhaling chemicals from foam flame retardants (have you seen that crazy
documentary about it!? holy crap!). any who it came out great, right?

a bigger baby gets the bigger room. now that she's 2, M needs a little more space to move! so we switched our 'master bedroom' with hers. it looks fantastic, M love's it...everyone's happy.
