My mom then found a chair rail to go around the room and she painted it for us.
My dad built Caty a dresser for her room – actually a second one because the one that was in her previous room was also built by my dad. He had built the first one before she was born and diagnosed with Achondroplasia, so the size of the dress was just a tad too big for Caty. This second dress is now the perfect height for her!
Here’s a picture of the first dresser, which will be Hanna’s. Notice how I have to take the picture from outside of the room – the room is 10x10 and the dresser takes up almost 8 feet of the wall.
Now here is a picture of Caty’s new and appropriately sized dresser:
Then one evening around 5:00, Caty decided that she wanted to move into her new room that night. So we moved the essentials in and then slowly moved the rest of her things into the room.
Here’s the finished product, minus the pictures on the wall, which I hope Scott will get up this weekend:
ps - I went back to blogger to post this post because I really want to get it done and I'm not getting anywhere with Windows Live Writer. I'll have to work on that some more.
