Madeline's eclectic room

A friend had the cute blankie made for Madeline

Her changing station and light from Ikea

Her bed with quilt. I still have to quilt it and put the binding on.

More pics of the quilt.

I love the Amy Butler paisley fabric. It would all be in that fabric if I could have done it. I like the others too but it is by far my favorite. The dresser is antique and the changing table is actually a buffet table from Ethan Allen I picked up when we lived in Albuquerque. We bought the bed new and a friend gave us their rocker. It is comfy, doesn't match though, but I am about practical. Most things will only be used for a little while anyways. The chaning buffet was perfect for the changing table and I like all the compartments that are in it, and there is a shelf in the bottom cabinet part. I do have plans to put up white curtains and then sooner or later make a paisley valance to go over the top...but I am not going to do it just yet. There are still more pressing things to do at the house to get it ready to sell. We don't have anything up on the walls because I don't want to have to deal with the holes and patching them when we sell. Lazy, I know but true. Hope you all like the room.

very fun. I love all the great colors in the bedding you made her. I've been thinking about you a lot, wondering when your little May girl will decide to arrive. Enjoy your last few days with just Nate, and the animals. Sending prayers your way.

Love the room, Rach! And the quilt is awesome! I remember when we had dinner at your house one night and you commented on how you were going to use the buffet as a changing table fun! Great job and I'm praying for you in these last few days=)
