It's all done (thank goodness).

Punky and Maddie's room is complete...
minus a few touches...
like a bed for Maddie...
and curtains.
But let's not dwell on the negatives, shall we?
Let's revel in the knowledge that the painting is complete and I can check off another item on the list.
The top picture shows you Punky's bed...cute isn't it? We found her bedding and just fell in love. What you can't see is the quilt-like flower stitching on the bedspread in green thread. The wall-hanging is from H0bby-Lobby...weird how they match so perfectly!
The next is the girls' dresser...an oldie but a goodie. Meshack and I bought it at a second-hand store when we were first married. Eighteen plus years later it's still holding up and it looks decent up next to that lovely green paint. Notice, Punky's newest prized possession...her fish tank. She's been wanting a fish tank FOREVER...and finally received this little beauty for her birthday last week. And to top it off, the box described the color as 'Punky Purple'.
She was was convinced they had made it just for her!
The last picture will give you an idea of where Maddie's bed will go...when she gets a bed. It's hard to figure out what to put there since we don't even know how old she'll be.
We have a white crib and toddler bed in storage, so we're set there. If we need a twin we'll have to go to the humongous furniture store down in K.C. to find one to match Punky's.
We'll leave that up to Meshack. It can be one of his many projects, while I'm spending my days in Ukraine.
So there you have it...
Another item checked off.
The tally is getting shorter and shorter.
But then again, so is our time!
We're down to...
20 days!!!

I LOVE the color! We've still got to paint the kids' room, but if it doesn't happen before we go I'm not too worried about it. It'll get done eventually. :)

Yes, the room looks great! It will look better when the other bed is in it and filled, I am sure.

It looks great. Love the colors.

How fun and exciting that you don't even know your daughters age, yet she's "out there" somewhere already!
