No but for real, you guys. See, the best time of the day to take pictures in our den/play room is around 4 or 5 pm, when the gorgeous early evening light is streaming through the west facing windows and everything is warm and bright and happy. But if you have kids of your own, I don't have to tell you why trying to take photos of a playroom at 5 pm is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea.
So 7 a.m. it was. And I just had to give up on things being just so. On every toy being stacked and set at exactly the right jaunty angle. On....I don't know. On perfection I guess.
Here are the listing photos of the den before we came to see it...
right here, and then here are some from after we moved in but before we Borobia-styled it fully...

And now we're basically pretty much you know "finished." Because is anything ever really finished finished finished? Nevah.
|Lizzy painted these. Aren't they fun?|
wall paint color: Behr Dolphin Fin in FLAT (this is super important to note because the texture of the walls made even eggshell seem weird and glow-in-the-dark. Only when I started sampling flat paints did anything seem even remotely tolerable.)
kids' project display wall: Ikea Dignitet curtain wires
window treatment hardware: These rods and these rings, both from Home Depot. They are my favorite combo. Cheaper products than these will make you say bad words.
drapes: Mainstays Bennet Window Panels (I love these. The texture and weight are great.)
sofa slipcover: Sure Fit cotton duck slipcover in sage
coffee table: faux leather storage ottoman
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I'm so happy to have it finished!
