Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, June 8, 2014
Our daughter, Julie, who is the mommy to our two wonderful grandchildren, Tyler and Gracie, is graciously giving the crib and dresser that she used for the kids, to Jeff and Jessica for their new (soon to arrive) first born.  The dresser doubles as a changing table once they get the new pad to go on it.

Jeff and Jess have been working very hard remodeling the upstairs of their home so that they will have a nice master bedroom, 3/4 bath, a room for the baby and a nice walk in closet.  A few weeks ago they asked it I would be willing to house sit while the carpet guys came to install their new carpet.  YOU BET!
Master bedroom...

The baby's room...

Now with the carpet it looks so good
I love all the angled walls
Walk in closet... and a linen closet

This is the picture that Jeff took, and posted on Facebook, of their new master bedroom finally completed.

What I love about their upstairs bedroom is that when you look out the window you can see their wonderful garden.  Jeff's Grandpa Waite would be so proud.
Over the winter months, Jeff made these great markers for the garden, carving the words and painting them. Now they can see at a glance what they planted and where!  Great job, Jeff!

And since Julie gave the dresser that Gracie was using to the new baby (because it matched the crib) she needed a dresser for Gracie so she decided to use an old dresser that was given to her (wish I would have taken a "before" picture) and asked if Grampa could fix it so the drawers were a bit safer and then if it could be painted.  Gracie chose pink, of course!  We found a color called Debutante in a chalk paint that went on so sweet!  He added new drawer glides so the drawers wouldn't fall out onto her little toes.

After waxing and sanding it looks pretty nice.  Now all it needs is some cool drawer pulls.
As of today there is only 18 more days until Jessica's due date!  I can hardly wait to hold our newest grand baby!!

Thanks for stopping by!
