And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Last minute touch ups

Well, I have an amazingly talented hubby!!!

We have an armoire that we decided to use for her changing area.  B repainted it and made it gorgeous for her room.  However, once you open it, the back just has the punch out type thing for your TV cables.  So, he decided this weekend that something needed to be done.

We guessed that her hands would be all over whatever was against the back and so it needed to be safe and soft.  The top part, she won't be able to reach.  So, we decided to just have fun with that.

So, here is his masterpiece.

 The changing spot is pink minky dot.  
So, the back "wall" is chocolate minky dot.
 At the top, he created a french bulletin board from the polka dot on the bed.

 This pic was taken by HaleyBPhotography.  Go check out her work & sign up for her to take your pics!  She does an amazing job!!

 I'm so impressed with the job that he did...

Here's a quick look at the rest of her room.
 Her dresser with many of the frames that B's cousin, K, made, 
and Granny's poem for our baby!!
 P's bed!!!
P's glider, the precious blanket that Piper made, and her Boppy!!

We are terrible about not wanting to put holes in the walls and so we've not hung the precious letters that spell out her name that B's cousin made.  She also made a French Bulletein Board for the wall that we've not hung.  Finally, we need to decide on curtains (i.e., what fabric, what style, etc.?)! Hopefully, we'll get that done this week!!

Thanks for stopping by to see her sweet room and my hubby's amazing talent!!!!

It all seems to be coming together!  She's due in two days.  So, hopefully, we are ready!!


  1. Precious! So excited for you guys! We'll be praying for a safe and fast delivery!

  2. Meredith,
    Praying for you and your family! We will be patiently waiting to hear the arrival and picture of your little girl!!
    Take care

  3. Hi M & B,

    Wow it looks great, so nice to see it all come together. I am so honored to have things up that I've made/ bought for y'all. I can't believe you made that ribbon board Ben, impressive! Don't worry about putting my ribbon board up- you probably don't need more than one so you can always hold unto it for later. But.. put those holes in, the letters would look great and complete the room! I love the picture above the crib.

    Just sent a package, so should be there on your due date (I think I'm out of things to make!).

    Sending prayers for a speedy (and painless as possible) delivery and a healthy and beautiful baby!


  4. What a lovely room for your sweet little one to come home to. You are such a lovely couple and I am so thankful for all God has done for you! You are in my prayers!

    God be with you,
