Toddler Bedroom Makeover Part 2

I made a lot of progress today….and bonus: NO injuries, wahoo!! ;) Here is my Toddler Bedroom Makeover part 2!
Day 1/yesterday’s progress: clean up her crap!  My little messy girl loves to pull her clothes out of her drawers during nap time.  I got them all organized and donated the excess.  *Exhale* Wow, that felt good.  I also halfway wallpaper beadboarded her walls and completed all the painting minus edges.

Day 2/today’s progress: Completed painting. Completed beadboard. Applied chair rail ALL BY MYSELF!! (Don’t look too closely m’kay?! My hubby came home and complimented me so it must be decent, right??) Spray painted accessories…to be finished manana for the final reveal.

Chair rail: This was so easy, I’m gonna do more projects with molding I’ve decided.  If you’ve got a brad nailer, this is easy peasy.  Just cut your wood to size [I love my chop saw], verify it’s straight with a level and brad nail away.  Simple.

I know, the lampshade has got to go AND the bed is pitiful. That will soon change.  Moving on, one of the many spray painting projects today was reviving an end table. I was excited to resurrect this baby as I got it at KMart almost 9 years ago and have to say, it’s been a great piece of furniture surprisingly!

Before: Meet the queen of this room, my sweet Laney [with the side table].  She currently stashes her My Little Ponies close to her bed so no one will steal them [like my older 3 are even tempted?!].
During: Drilled holes for the new feet, secured with wood glue, coated with spray paint, lightly distressed and after a quick coat of poly, we’re in business.
  
A fun pop of ol’ yeller for my lil girly.  Be back tomorrow with the Chapter 3 of the Toddler Bedroom Makeover Saga ;)
