We have a room ready.
It sure looks pretty open and bare in this picture..the wide-angle must have some effect on that.
It doesn't look quite as bare in real life. :)
I just can't wait to have a sleeping little boy in here! I did make the crib set. I mentioned the quilt earlier. I bought fabric for the sheet and made the crib skirt out of two old sheets we had on hand. I also ordered a white bumper pad, it's just not here yet.
For curtains, I took what was already in the room when Aliza used it, cut the middle section out of each curtain, and replace them with a panel of fabric from the stash downstairs. Just to add some color.
The dresser that used to be Malia and Josie's. And Nate's Mom's when she was a kid. :)
It will eventually have something on it...probably diaper supplies and a lamp.
One thing I am always thinking about when I decorate is how much I hate to dust little do-dads. There were lots of little vintage-y pieces I could have used to decorate, which I would have liked, but I really like to lessen any kind of unnecessary busy work. Keep the dusting requirements simple, I say. It was a part of how I thought about the girls' room too.
These shelves are about as do-dad-y as I get. It was pushing it for me.
I still want to paint the H red.
The frame used to be in Aliza's room. I printed these pictures of Nate's and my parents, Nate and I (yes, he is pulling a baby goat by its leg...I love it), and left the center for Hunter.
The books we had and the blocks were given to me at a thrift store when I asked "how much for 5?"
The embroidery was done by my Mom and used to hang in my room (as a baby) and Josie and Malia's room. The round hoop I put together, and I followed this tutorial to make the wood sign. It was with a piece of lumber left over from building our house.
And the little fabric-covered canvases that I made are hanging on a small wall in front of you when you enter.
