D's Nursery

Its been three months since D came into our lives. But it was many months before that that we started to plan for his room. He may not have known it when he first came home but now we can see him looking around.. it is possible that he is staring at something else completely but I like to think that he smiles because he enjoys the colors around him.

When we started out his room at been a make shift office for M and also functioned as a guest room. And it looked like this the day we started to paint. Our choice of color Lemon Pound Cake. We knew he was a he but we didn't want to trap him in a blue room just because he was a boy.


We don't believe in excess so we didn't go crazy buying toys.. we thought we'd wait and see what type of a baby he was.. and shop to suit his personality also that it would be wise to wait till he was actually able to play with toys.. but a cute little train and a few others were just too hard to resist.


Our crib is the Graco Lauren, Dwell Traffic Bedding from Target.  Above the crib hang colorful lantern from the Dollar Tree.




The bookshelves were once nightstands in our room. We removed the doors and repourposed them as floating shelves. Above the bookshelves three art prints. The numbers and alphabet one created by yours truly and the gorgeous boy girl art print created by a very talented felllow Etsian HeatherFuture



Our comfy chocolate rocking chair a great find at the Burlington Coat Factory's Baby Depot above which hangs a mobile I made inspired by the designs of  Lupin of Bugs and Fishes made with a beautiful array of felt from Pixie Rose. This was quite a project.. I was sewing in bed and sewing in the car and I don't sew. Though it required no more than a running stitch I have never done more than reattached a fallen button. We also repurposed some plain white curtains we had. I bought a rubber stamp from Drumchick99 a little robot and stamped the little guy along the bottom of the curtains.


  Lastly, we installed additional shelving in D's closet. He may not have much now but a day will come when the extra closet space will come in handy. And we bought these really cute blue and green bins from Target.


We had so much fun putting together the nursery.. so many memories to be made.. stories to be told and sleepless nights to be had.
