Some of you might remember the story about this bedding. I bought the quilt on the wall when I was pregnant with Kiddo #1, before I even knew if it was a boy or a girl. I found it in a quilt shop in a little town in NC when The Hubster was stationed at Lejeune. I loved it and had to have it. I knew I'd use it some day. The first baby was a girl, so it got packed away for a few years. Then along came our sweet boy.
This lamp has been in my husband's family for many years. It was his uncle's when he was a boy (not sure where it came from before that) and then was his brother's as a boy. When were dating/engaged we found it in his parent's attic, all dusty and gross. We asked if we could have it for our house after we got married. It was our first project we worked on together. We refinished the wood part, repainted the metal spur to look aged, and put a new lamp shade on.

and I've had that old crate for years.
The furniture in this room was my daughter's when she was a baby and the red gingham fabric in the baskets is a little too bright for this room (in fact they almost look pink in these pictures). My sister suggested tea staining them to darken them up. It's a good idea, just one I haven't accomplished yet.

The door on the left is the door coming into the room, and the one on the right is the closet. The black hat is The Hubster's, from our time on the ranch.
My Grandpa made this shelf for me, and he made the little wooden horse for my brother many years ago. The little cowboy picture was a Goodwill find.
The problem with the room? This lone window on the other side of the room. I'm not sure what to do for a window treatment since the bedding set only came with the one valance. How do I dress it without detracting from the valance on the other wall? I don't want it to be plain, but I also don't want it to draw attention to itself.
