Let's see if I can remember how to do this. Ya know...blog. (Sorry readers...)
We are pretty much done with the baby's nursery. It has been a process and one which would have never happened if it weren't for the help (blood sweat and tears) of some very important people. Grandma and Grandpa (my mom and dad), and my sweet friend Kelsey, painter and idea gal extraordinaire! And of course, Dan and Isaac. The little man gave up his comfy down-stairs room for a smaller, more "grown up" room upstairs. (I will dedicate a new post to this room later, promise!) I would also like to thank Home Depot, Lowes, Fabrics.com, and EBay, and I cannot forget my very durable and reliable $50 sewing matching, purchased on Craigslist still in the box.
Do you remember my Color Inspiration? Well, I stuck with it despite my frustration at not finding the PERFECT fabric or bedding or, well, anything that really matched 100%. But that's okay. Matchy matchy is out, right? Hodge Podge is in?
There are still a few things to do, and probably will be an ongoing project of sorts...accentuating and accessorizing. So, without further ado, here is the future room of one Miss Aubrey Lynn McGuire:
This soft yellow damask fabric is very much like the pumpkin used on the rocker. I didn't have good lighting so you can't see it very well. It's a simple panel swagged to one side. We plan on getting REAL blinds soon to replace the year old paper ones from our move-in day...over a year ago!
And my ALL TIME FAVORITE space saver of the century: A changing table in the closet!! My dad simply cut a 1x12 in half (right?) and the two parts fit perfectly above the clothes rod as a shelf. They are screwed into place ontop of the wood that holds the clothes rod. It's a little high, but later on it can just be removed! I am going to get a few baskets to hold diapers and supplies next to the changing cushion. And we can STILL hang clothes below because there's a space above the rod! LOVE THIS!
The baby's initials were put in 12x12 scrapbook frames using the inspiration paper and an orange paper I had in my stash. The white letters were a steal at Hobby Lobby.
So, whatdoyathink? Besides a baby (only 3 weeks left!) there are a few things missing that we can't put our finger on. Nothing big, just more customizing or more "baby-ish" type items. I am thinking vinyl words or a fun flourish somewhere....but we're happy as clams it's complete and ready for a new life!
