Cinderella's Room 2.0

Going back a FEW months, I wanted to update you all on Cinderella's Room. If you don't remember how we started this project, click on link to the 1.0 post.

Do you know how hard it is to keep a six year old's room clean? Especially when there is a two-year-old little sister running around. Tough!  I can't remember when I snapped these pics, but I assure you that this was the last time it was this clean.

The brown prints, "Beauty" and "Grace", are from one of my favorite shops in Kansas City, called Hammerpress. Seriously, check out their online store.
Another item from the nursery is this white rose metal frame. During our move across the country, the mirror within broke and it's been sitting in a closet every since. I decided to add some cork to it so Cinderella can display the copious amounts of art she produces.
 Finally, the bird cage and an heirloom from my childhood, the Troll. Kidding. The Troll is new. How crazy is it that Trolls ha…

We built a fence!

Early November, on a random Saturday, the girls were playing in the yard and I decided to kick-down the back fence. Yep, kicked it down. That's HOW READY it was to fall down.

 20 minutes later....viola!

 Before and after:
So, feeling a little open and not secure, we decided to BYOF (Build Your Own Fence) last weekend. We nearly took it over the finish line. Not finished but close.

Dug some post holes:
  Set them in concrete:
 Bought a skill saw, trimmed some redwood planks to fit and leveled them:
 Looking better:
 Sunday evening around 5:10 p.m. (man, it gets dark early):
 Two days later, my parents came in town for a Christmas performance at Cinderella's school. Dad and Handyman banged out the right side of the fence.
View from the Bebe's room:
We are off to Home Depot now to buy the supplies for the gate and trim. More to come!
