construction. It's shaping up to be very sleek and tailored with the tapered legs and all. The headboard is keeping me from finishing, there's a conflict in the design department. I think it will be panelled with some brass accents. The bed will be stained/painted to look like ebony.
The easel is for the nursery, the stickers were priced unreasonably cheap, and they looked like brass nailheads without the hassle of actually having to nail them in. Score.
The green paper will be the nursery ceiling, I'll make coordinating area rugs out of the quilted pink paper.
My oven-to-dishwasher conversion is awesome. My little plates and cups fit in the rack which slides in and out of the grooves. The wierd blank spot is for the silverware caddy. Not done yet.

The second option is here. Thoughts anyone?
Below are a few other items I picked up this weekend. The mini brass jorgensen-style, corner, and C-clamps all came from my Late-Grandfather-In-Law's (basically abandoned) woodworking shop. He was an expert carver, and there's a whole shop worth of stuff nobody ever looks at. It's an awesome resource. The little round bamboo box and the lace trim are from the local Savers. Only $3 for both. The box is already lined, and I think it will make a great coffee table/storage ottoman. The lace trim will make perfect bedskirts for the nursery. The yellow rolls are copper/brass embossing foil. And LOADS of it! I'm beyond pumped.
