We always planned to put Brody back into his old room once we converted the crib to a big bed. So, this meant a lot of unexpected work for Jason! Fortunately, my mom and dad were nice enough to help. They took apart Brody's bunk bed and moved into the other room after taking apart the crib and getting it out of the way. Of course, we couldn't move Brody into a room that was painted baby colors, so a new coat of paint was needed. My dad knocked that out in one day so Brody only had to miss one nap in his bed. Thanks Gacky!!!
After the beds were moved and the paint was done, the rooms were almost complete...all but the valance in Brody's room. It had to be replaced, because it was made specifically for the nursery bedding. We really did not want to spend too much on replacing it, since Christmas is so close. So, after a few weeks of looking at different options, my creative and incredibly talented husband went to work and made the valance! It looks awesome! Jason amazes me daily with all of his many hidden talents!
Both boys are very happy in their new big boy rooms!
Colby was so excited he couldn't even wait for them to put the mattress on. He was already getting it ready for his nap.
Brody supervising Gacky and Poogie as they install Colby's safety rails...Brody is always a great helper!
The boys trying out Colby's new "big boy" bed. We didn't even have bedding yet!
Now it is a big boy room with bedding and all! It is decorated with trains and tractors...2 of Colby's favorite things.
Brody's bunk bed fits so much better in this bedroom, and he loves his brown walls!
Check out that valance! I still can't believe Jason made it!
