Here's the much simplified version of the process: The room was cleared of its old furniture. The carpet was cleaned. The walls and trim were painted. The new furniture arrived and was put together. The tent was secured to the ceiling. Four rugs and various storage baskets were bought before finding the "perfect" ones. The window treatments were sewn and put up. The scalloped monogram and quote went up on the walls. The toys, dress-up clothes, stuffed animals, books, puzzles, dolls all found their way to the room...so IT IS FINALLY COMPLETE and I LOVE IT! I am having so much fun with everything. Come over to play soon!
