HIP, HIP, HOORAY! - Mia's Room

Mia's room is nearly done!!! Here are some pics of before, after and "in progress".

Mia's room ended up being a dumping ground for boxes and stuff when I first moved in. We DID get it cleared out bit by bit so that family who came into town would have beds to sleep in. Thank goodness for them coming, or it would probably still look that way. :) Nothing like company coming to motivate you into getting some house cleaning done!!!

This is what it looks like now. Isn't it SO DANG CUTE!!! We still have stuff to finish and sort through and put away (ie, the shelves in the bookcase and the gift bags on the floor). So FUN to have it come together though. We busted our tails this weekend to get it finished!
Here are some pictures of the work in progress for those of you who (like me) are totally into seeing the "process" of home improvement and decorating.

Mia's room with crib put together, walls taped off and ready for paint!

Papa Zeus and Uncle Jeff putting up the ceiling fan in Mia's room. Tricky without directions, but they did it! :)

The "first" color, which is the color of the hallways, and NOT the color of the kitchen that it was suppose to be. :) Whoopsie!

The difference between the two colors as it was being edged.

The originally planned color all finished and ready for the top color to be painted.

Walls all un-taped and ready to go with the top color!

Zeus painting the top pale "earthy" pink color. Sometimes looks a little tan in some pics (like the one below). This is one of "truer" color looking picture.

The anal mama painting the perfect crisp edge between the two colors so that we didn't have to buy and put up quarter round edging. :) So very sneaky of me, eh?!?

Mia's room from left to right. Can't wait to see her looking so new and tiny in the crib!
Gotta love the Poang chair. Can't wait to hold Mia in it! We even can't wait to change her little diapers on the changing table and put her dirty clothes in the laundry hamper!!! lol

There is still things to put away and supplies to get - we only have ONE package of diapers so far - but we can't wait for her to get here and be in our arms and in her new little room! :)


  1. Darcie,
    It looks great! You are such a talented interior designer. :)

    I hope you're feeling well and that school is going well, too. Congratulations to Zeus on getting into graduate school. That's awesome!

  2. Very pretty! I can't wait to see it (and you) on Saturday! :)

  3. Looks so cute!!! I remember once Alex's room was all set and done, I couldnt wait for him to be born! I would just sit in the rocking chair in his room and read him stories, and once he was born, we were never in there and changed his diapers on the couch LOL At least he had a cute room! LOL

    I love the brown and pink together!! So cute!

  4. Love Mia's room--wanna come decorate my girl's rooms? They need some help!
    I love reading your blog--keep posting!
