Nursery Decorating Update

18 Jan

So far I am really excited with how the nursery is turning out. MJD and worked through the office issue, we got a new smaller desk and moved it so that it’s no longer the focal point of the room. We also got a really nice, warm picture of Eastern Market (from Eastern Market) to hang over his desk. Then we made the other two walls about baby. I think it all actually works well together!

Once we go the furniture figured out, MJD hung the Land of Nod curtains (that match the crib set) and I ordered a decal for over the crib, and adorable pictures for over the changing table (currently being framed).

The decal is from Etsy, a shop called SmileyWalls (it looks like she’s on vacation right now), and the woman is so great to work with. She went back and forth with me on colors and I love how it looks! My mom and sister actually came down for a little visit and hung most of it up for me (I get frustrated with craft projects very easily!). We have some more flowers to put up – I am hoping my sister does that when she comes to meet the baby, but I love it!!

The prints I will share once they are framed. So, here are some pictures so far. The lighting is not the best, but I’ll post better pictures when we are done.

Oh and we painted the room yellow a while ago.

I can’t find a picture of the office set up as it has been since we moved in, but here is the room as we unpacked.

Do you like it so far?

18 days

14 Jan

Eighteen days until we hit the official due date. That doesn’t mean baby comes in 18 days, but after 37 weeks, that seems pretty close. The nursery decorating is in full swing. My mom and sis came to visit and hung a fabulous decal over the crib.

We are going to get prints framed this weekend to hang over the dresser/changing table.

And then we have to buy and wash some sheets and the changing pad cover, but at that point, we will be pretty decorated. I just can’t believe a little person is then going to use the room…a little person we haven’t met yet. What will she think of the decal? Will she like the pictures of her dad hanging curtains and her aunt and grandma decorating with decals?

It’s all very exciting and overwhelming, and I still have trouble imagining it.

SO, instead I will continue to make lists of things to do and post pictures soon of the decor so far. Much easier!
