nursery done

On- Saturday 23 November 2013

Yay! The nursery is done. Except for a few more pictures and obviously lots more baby "stuff" - poor little guy doesn't really have anything except furniture and clothes at the moment. But Im sure that will change and we have plenty of storage space ready for it.

There were quite a few little DIY projects which might explain why I feel so exhausted. But very pleased with how everything turned out, it was worth it. Little one's initials I bought from spotlight, painted the same colour as the wall and used spray glue to attach some glitter scrapbook paper. The painting above the crib is just simple stripes painted on, then strips of ribbon added for more colour and texture.

Auntie Jackie made the beautiful crocheted blanket, and Grandma Bell made the gorgeous rocket mobile pieces which I put together with a wooden hanger purchased from etsy. Behind the door is another artwork I did of an owl which is mixed media using security envelope paper. Uncle Chris is working on some crazy alien illustrations which I'll use to make an ABC poster.

And because I love before and afters - the change table with drawers was an ebay find for $100 which I painted the same colour as the walls. Then I used left over test pots to create the ombre effect and navy handles. The rocking chair was another ebay purchase for just $40. Just a lick of gloss white paint and some nice new fabric.  

To finish it off - twinkle curtains. Black out curtains in navy blue with little lazer cut stars that let just a little light in. Oh and we're missing a before shot of the whole room - yup, that's an improvement.
