Eli's Room...

First, I must say, I love IKEA!

That's where the decor came from... I made the monogram, bedskirt (thank you liquid sew and iron & hem! :) haha!) and improvised on the frames with pictures in them.... Other than that, aside from furniture and the curtain, it all came from the great IKEA. Every room in my house has something from IKEA in it! :)

Anyways, in the beginning, we were going for something 'plain.' Well, I just couldn't do plain... My brain blocked any idea I came up with and kept coming back to these things I saw in the magazine. My friend, Emily, just happened to be going to IKEA in late June and I had her pick some of the things up. Then, three weeks ago, I made a trip up with Kasie and Kristy and finished it off! Matt and I painted the room over 4th of July weekend and the rest has kind of come together in the last week. I'm really happy with it. It's the furthest from plain, but it puts a smile on my face! Anyways, aren't bold, primary colors supposed to stimulate their mind!? :) I might have to worry a little about over-stimulation! ha!

Without further adieu...







Don't mind that awful lamp.
It's just holding the place for the new one..
