Thanks, but I actually have to kick out the dog in a few months.   His beloved swoopy chair will soon be replaced with a crib.  Cheesy

Bowing down to the DIY Craft Goddess that is.. YOU.  Your room is amazing, I love the lighting in the first pic (I just picked up one of those cool star lamps myself), and just how the colors work together.  I love the fact that everything in your room is thrifted, bargained for or handmade... you  are awesome!!

First off - Congrats on the crib situation. 

What a great room.  I used the links and saw what you have done to your house.  You are truly gifted.

I can't wait to see what you do for the baby room. 

If you run out of rooms, come on over - i need a fresh idea or two!

Thanks so much everyone.  We are in the process of revamping this room right now.  The walls and rug will stay the same, but just about everything else will change.

My husband is building a custom computer desk in the closet.  Unfortunately, the computer must stay in this room, but it's not very baby-friendly ... so we'll hide it in the closet. It should be completed soon.  I'll post updated pics as soon as it's finished.

The furniture will be sanded and painted within the next few weeks.  The baby is not due until January, but we want to get the major work done before we go back to school in September.

Faux Beadboard techniques:
Traditional beadboard installed very similar to the panels. It is then usually painted for a finished look. You can simulate the look of beadboard throughout the home without the hassle or headache of installation. Instead you can use creative techniques such as painting or wallpapering to simulate the warm look of beadboard.
Options
You can create the look of beadboard with a little paint, a squeegee, masking tape and a steady hand. For this project, for most of the supplies at your local home improvement or hardware store. Plan accordingly and buy enough paint to cover your project. You will want to buy a paint with a satin finish in your choice of colors. White is very popular to use when painting the beadboard. Start recording all areas that do not want to paint. This includes moldings, ceiling and floor if necessary. Cover any other exposed surfaces with newspaper to prevent spills and stains of paint.
Apply a base coat of paint to the wall or other surface with a brush or roller. While the base coat is still wet, apply the top coat. You will have to work quickly in the next step before the paint dries.
Slots cut into the squeegee with a knife that mimic the look of beadboard. Apply the spatula on the painting on the wall or other surface and create the beadboard design, running up and down the wall or surface in a straight line, while the paint is still wet. This will create the effect of line on the surface. Continue in this manner until you reach a corner. If the width of the squeegee will not work in the corner, to repaint the area and work backwards to accommodate the design. It may be useful to have a helper with this project, a person can paint and the other standards can be manipulative.
Another alternative to create a false image is the use of beadboard wallpaper design already printed on the wallpaper. Look for special papers like this online or through your local home improvement.
