    G’s new room (teasers)

    Well, we’re a far cry from being done, but there’s progress. We’ve spent the last (what feels like forever) weeks packing up the office so that we can move G in. And when I say “we”, I really mean S, because one of us has to keep an eye on the monkey while the other gets the actual work done. I never imagined that moving out of one room could take so long and be so painful. In effect the office has been a storage room for us for the past 3-4 years. S’ school stuff is still there, boxes of electronics, extra cables, folders… you name it.

    Oscar came in to paint today. It actually kind of accelerated getting the rest of the stuff cleared up, even if it meant dumping it in boxes, and just hiding it away.

    G’s room will be kind of a safari theme, but the colors will be orange and gray (yep, where have you seen THAT before?). I don’t have any pics to show just yet, so instead here are most of the elements that will be in the room when all is said and done:

    … Now, wanna help us find some cool-looking orange bedding?

      I’m obsessed with orange and grey right now! Dare I say an orange and grey quilt in a very modern design would be smashing! 😉

        Amy, I agree — a cool quilt would be awesome. If he was past the potty training stage, I would be ALL over it too, but we’re heading in that direction, and a pee-peed quilt would break my heart (even though you can wash it).

        But when he’s old enough, you better believe I’ll be talking to you about it.

      If you give me measurements, I can try to get something made. The only problem is sending it to you!

      Crate & Barrel has some pretty orange bedding – in twin bed size? There’s also this one: http://www.beddingsuperstore.com/i?store=cat&id=7853&sid=52BX51SF9J08MH (just gray circles, but you could accent it with orange sheets and pillow cases).

        So we actually managed to score some cool looking bedding from Bed, Bath and Beyond. We made out like bandits on Friday night, and found the bedding on clearance. So along with our 20% off coupons (we’ve only managed to collect 3 dozen… and since they don’t expire…) we ended up getting 2 bedding sets, waterproof mattress pads, and waterproof pillow casings all for under $150.

        The room is sloooowly coming together, but I hope by the end of the month it will be done and I’ll have pics to show for it.
