We're working on painting over that stone grey/purple paint from when the room was a guest bedroom. There were some leftover paints in the basement, which I mixed together (the sea foam from the living room, and blue from our bedroom) to make a nice soft blue.
Over the weekend, Chris and I put together some Billy bookshelves from IKEA for S's new room. Naturally, Soren wanted to help, and we eagerly obliged. After all, anyone can put together IKEA furniture, right? Especially since the instructions are mostly visual, and come in a dozen different languages--even toddler-talk, perhaps.
(Feel free to ignore my awful hair--it was during the Dirty Hippie experiment)
