Can you handle the cuteness??

We've had Laila's room painted and the furniture for quite a while, we wanted to show our social worker we were serious about adopting so we wanted a nursery. Well, I've been wanting to do things a little differently and my sister in law, Kate, was just the kick in the butt I needed. I said I didn't think we had time to finish it and she said, "oh yeah we do" and she was right!! 2 days of work and this is the result... it's beautiful and and we LOVE it!!
That's Kate, tapeing and measuring the stripes. The nursery is a light lilac and we did stripes of a darker lilac and light yellow.These are the stripes, we added new white baseboards and a white chair rail and it's ADORABLE!!! We learned how to make mitered corners also!! The final product... I'm in love. We have her dresser with the cute lamp, her crib with her stuffed bear waiting for her, a changing table with the diaper genie and her glider where mommy and daddy will rock her to sleep. We still have a few finishing touches... I have letters that spell her name that I will paint and hang from the wall with ribbon, I have her special quilt that I will hang and I'm getting some sheers that will go over the wood blinds on her window. I will post pictures when it's entirely finished but this is pretty close!! And how can I have a post about cuteness and not show off Nick and Gabrielle, these are recent pictures of them. Please excuse the TV show in the background of Gabs picture, I'm addicted to What Not to Wear!! Hope you have a great week, we're heading for the mountains and Royal Gorge Friday!!

I can only barely handle the cuteness! Adorable, you did a great job on those stripes! I'm not sure I would have even tackled that :) Oh, and I love WNTW, too!
