I know some of you are dying to see pictures of the baby's room (I have a hard time calling it the “nursery” for some reason). So I snapped a couple this weekend after the baby shower.
We got the wall decorations hung that came with the bedding over the crib. I still need to wash the bedding (what? I still have 12 weeks!), but at least it's in the crib. Chuck's mom made the curtains for us. I love how they turned out. And that bookshelf next to the chair (which we already had just sitting around) will be replaced with a table at some point.
I don't have a changing pad, yet, but the dresser is going to double as the changing table. I am planning to sort through all the clothes in the tote (these are the ones from Katie that she so generously parted with). I made the wall hangings with Chuck's help the night before the shower. The morning of the shower, we were hanging them. I got the idea somewhere online. I will try to find the link or maybe just do a tutorial on CraftsOnAWhim.com. They were a big hit at the shower!
This wall still needs something hanging over the bookshelf, but I have no idea what to put there yet. I kind of want to do a collage of white picture frames with these little flower things mixed in. It would make more sense if you were in my brain and had some idea what I was talking about!
And a friend bought us the mobile to go on the bed. It was delivered yesterday and we have yet to hang it up, but it will go on the wall side of the crib.
So there you have it…the rundown of the
nursery baby's room. Now if we didn't have to wait 12 whole weeks for her to come live in it. Come on baby!!! Cook faster! 🙂
