I started painting the nursery in between nap times this weekend, and have all the walls except for the corner with the computer (yet to be moved) done. I absolutely love this color. It’s a shade darker than I had originally thought I’d go, but the very slightly lighter shade of the sample paint just didn’t show off all the woodwork very well. This one just glows, and looks so great with the crib. I’m really excited about the artwork that’s going to hang over the crib – it has so many colors and I think it will look really great with such a calm background. The rest of the room is still a mess – and much more studio than nursery. I haven’t given up much space to the baby yet, but small steps. There are only so many hours in the day. And yes, that’s the mobile I’ve been waiting for. Hopefully we’ll get that hung sometime this week.
And below is something I’ve been eyeing for her room as well – at least the tree part. They are handmade with fabric, and adhere to the wall, but can be moved around repeatedly. I was thinking of using them in the room and adding some handpainted touches with growth markers – we’ve never really had a true growth chart around here for the girls. And since we discovered tonight when we tried on the 0-3 month pajamas on F for the first time…yeah, well…those are going right back in the bin. Apparently we’re skipping that size entirely – because growing we are.
