I had Chuck’s sister come over yesterday to help me put the finishing touches on the nursery. We decided to use the same room that we used for Maddie’s nursery. So a while back we moved Maddie into a new room. And here’s a little recap of what the nursery looked like when it was Maddie’s room.
So here is what Baby Girl #2’s room looks like now. I took pictures from each corner of the room.
The only things I have left to do in there is put a no-slip thing under the changing pad, bring the diaper genie from the laundry room into her room, hang the baby monitor on the wall and put a light bulb in the lamp by the chair. Not too bad.
So some details about the room. First, the furniture. Months ago, we were buying some furniture from Babies R Us and they ultimately ended up losing our business because they were dumb. So we went to USA Baby and bought the same furniture we had for Maddie. It was expensive, but we were done shopping around and bring disappointed. 10 weeks goes by and the furniture comes damaged. So we spent almost 2 weeks getting that resolved. Then we said forget it and went to Ikea and bought the crib and dresser for less than the cost of Maddie’s crib. (Yeah…you realize you don’t need to spend as much money on things for a second child.)
Then the decals. Chuck’s sister did a similar theme for her daughter’s room. I have loved it ever since I saw it, so I was SO excited to be having another girl and go with something girly with owls! You might have noticed the owls on the bookshelf in her room. Paige came to help me put up the decals. They are so cute. After getting it all done, we both decided they could have been lower, but after all the work we put into it, we decided it was perfect!
Sorry Maddie…your sister’s room might be cuter than yours was.
And finally, CHuck’s mom makes all sorts of adorable things for Maddie and her cousin. This bedding set had an owl pillow you could buy, but Linda made one instead!
She also has a really cute quilt in the works with an owl on it. Every one of the kids in the family get one. Maddie’s was a duck! (And I can’t seem to find a good picture of it, but it is in the pictures of Maddie’s new room.)
So there you have it. That’s the baby’s room. Now all we need is a baby to fill it up! Just a couple weeks!
