Baby Girl's Room
We were hoping to have it COMPLETELY ready before the "reveal." But, time is running short, so I might as well show off what we have done so far!
Jason did a great job painting this dresser! It was a great find at a local church garage sale. God had it ready just for us - I saw it on the church lawn on my way to work. We also bought the matching twin bed frame that Jason will eventually paint for her. I think we paid a total of $20 for both the dresser and bed frame!
The Goodwill lamp base and shade we found stopping there on a whim. With two dance teacher moms, I had to add my own spice to the lamp with some rhinestones! I love bling and anything that glitters! I also sewed the runner with leftover fabric from her quilt.
The quilt I made is large enough for a toddler bed, so it doesn't quite fit in the crib. I had some extra blanket binding and fabric, so I made her a little blankie that she can have as her "special" blanket if she so chooses to have one! Also, this pic shows the beautiful way that the crib skirt turned out - my Mom and sister Autumn made it over their July 4th stay! I helped pin!
This is a pretty good shot of the curtains - they match the crib skirt. Also courtesy of Mom and Autumn! I have to point out the wicker hamper - $3 garage sale find! And, the changing table, $15 garage sale find! Oh, and if you don't remember, the crib was Craig's list. I love to see all of my deals and steals in there!
We want to paint pink, purple, yellow, and orange daisies on the walls. We have the paint and home-made stencils (made from enlarging the scanned daisies from the curtain and crib skirt fabric) ready to go. Maybe this will be a Labor Day labor-inducing activity! :-)
Hope you like it! We sure do! We also purchased a rocker/glider with ottoman off of Walmart.com. We are very happy with it. It is in our living room for now, but it will eventually find a home in her room. I figure I might want it out in the living area for when we first come home from the hospital for all of those feedings!
