One of the biggest things I wanted to happen was to get the chair reupholstered. This was the same chair that my parents rocked me in, so it's quite worn and dated:
The toy chest (with loads of random crap on it) used to be bright green, but we painted it a flat chocolate brown. I'm also have a cushion made for the top in pastel pink with light green polka dots.
After playing around with the upholstery, I decided that I wanted a curtain valance (since we already have blinds) and a dust ruffle for the crib. I like the idea of hand-made, but purchasing these things on Etsy requires one to first win the lottery, so I enlisted my friend Randi to help me make these.

We're still working on the dust ruffle, but I'll have pictures of the entire room once it's complete.
