Busy, busy, busy

So, shall we see what it looks like today?
I'm sorry about the quality of the pictures,
  they were taken at 6:30 this morning before Little Miss got here - 
so they are a little dark.
Let's take a little tour of the room first okay?
Then we will look at some of the projects.



You can see a couple of our DIY projects already.





I absolutely LOVE the headboard the hubs made!
I saw one similar to this on Pinterest and when I showed it to him -  well, he just did his own thing with it. (I'll put the links to all the inspirations at the end of t…
