Having determined the requirements of a dream room, we began to gather the pieces.
- First was the promised Reading Chair, and we found this very basic one at Ikea which did not break the bank.
- Then I began the lap quilt, using Bekah's old clothing for some of the pieces. The quilt is not finished yet. I finished piecing it...but Bekah wants it to be quilted by hand, so she and I will work on that this summer.
We looked a a blue million rugs (in catalogs and stores), but we kept coming back to this white fuzzy rug from Target. I was sold on the price; Bekah was sold on the fuzz. (Remember, she wanted something to warm her toes. ~smile~)
- Ron made the table, an adaptation of a simple end table we had also seen at Target. Bekah and I went to Lowe's and selected a blue million paint chips from which we chose this color. (I believe the color is Seafoam Green, but I cannot find the chip. Whatever it was, Bekah loved the color and the name, both of which played a part in the selection. After all, if a color does not sound pretty, one could never live with it.)
Here it is, all put together...and much enjoyed by Bekah! I don't think she even misses those Beatrix Potter blocks!
