First I just have to give y’all an update. Remember our group prayer the other night. In the following two days 10 families passed court – including almost all of the “old timers”. Woo hoo! And we’re making in a regular thing.
This weekend I spent most of my time on the girls room. I really wanted to be able to send the kids pictures of their bedrooms in this next package. The girls needed the most work – painting all the furniture. The dressers belonged to my grandparents and the finish on the top was pretty damage. And the oak bunkbeds we bought at a great deal were pretty plain jane. So it all got a coat of “Cashmere White” paint. The dressers even got new drawer handles.
Here’s the “before” – modeled by Natalie.
Here’s a couple “after” shots:
I still plan to do something to try and girly up the bunkbeds a little more. Maybe a stencil or a fabric decal. But that will have to wait until after vacation and school starts.
It’s kind of hard to see, but on B-girls bed is a small stuffed lamb – something we were given at our adoption training (one for each of the kids). When Natalie saw it she went over to it and said, “Ooooh, where’s your owner? You poor lamb. I’ll take good care of you until B-girl gets here.”
