Nursery Additions: Decor

L has been busy working on the nursery as the arrival of our precious bundle of joy draws closer. If you remember from the last post regarding the nursery, it is a space theme. L made this creation from gift wrap and felt. Yeah, I know. She can take anything and make it look good.

L is also stenciling the walls. The stencils are drawn and ready to be painted.

The crib is now all decked out and ready to be used.

There are a few items still needed but I expect they will be taken care of during the baby shower. Unfortunately, I cannot attend so there will be no pictures or stories about how fun it was and all the gifts they received. Big sigh… I will just have to settle for hearing about it after the fact.

Do you remember the first time you set up a nursery for a baby? Or maybe you helped a friend or relative set up theirs. What kinds of things did you do?

    When I set up my second son's nursery, I painted the walls yellow (in those days, we didn't know gender until a baby was born) and ripped up the old carpet from the previous owners. When he was two weeks old, I hired someone to sand and refinish the hardwood floors underneath. There was a huge stain in the middle of the floor that he said he wouldn't be able to get up. When he did get it out, I was so excited, i ran downstairs to call my husband while my son was sleeping. And, fell off the bottom step and broke my foot. I called my husband and said, 'I've broken my foot. Our son is asleep, You have 20 minutes to get home before he wakes up to take me to the doctor." first and last time I've broken a bone. A specialist told me if i could stay off it for two weeks, it would be healed. otherwise, six weeks in a cast. He wrapped it in an ace bandage; I nursed the baby and was walking again in two weeks.

    You're right. L can do anything. Felt and wrapping paper! What a talent.

      I wish I had just a fraction of her talent.

    I like homemade stuff like the felt picture above much more than nurseries that look like a cookie-cutter picture from an expensive catalog.

      I agree.

  5. My girls shared a room until we moved into the house we live in now. They and my wife went to quite a bit of trouble decorating their shared rooms. But when we moved into the house they were older and took to decorating their rooms themselves. Teenagers love to hang up posters and such.

      Teenagers most certainly do, or at least they used to anyway.
