The nursery is done! Just in time to be converted to a playroom 🙂 But hey, it was done before she turns one year old and better late than never, right?
(Warning, very picture heavy post)
This is what we started out with
Lou Bear demonstrates where the crib is going (also note the beginning stages of our hurricane supplies in the form of bottles of water.)
Crib goes here
Josh hard at work
All done! (If only….)
The nursery fabric
The bedskirt all done
Another shot of the crib skirt. I used a quilted material to form the base since I wanted something thick enough that the springs wouldn’t stand a chance of poking a hole through it.
Dot dot dot
This project would have been a thousand times harder without a quilting board and a rotary cutter
Of course the springs are adjustable, so I when I made the skirt, I made it just long enough to hang below the edge of the base of the crib. That way, when it’s on it’s lowest setting, it just brushes the ground.
The lamp is probably one of our favorite nursery pieces. It was a discontinued item from Pottery Barn and they were out of the shade for it.
So I made my own! One self adhesive lamp shade + fabric =
One darn cool lamp
It works – bonus!
More progress (and more bottles of water)
Empty shelves mean progress, right?
And now, all done!
Such a big girl room
Bird’s eye view
Instead of making bumpers for the crib, I opted to do teething guards.
Sweet Mr Brown Dog and her blankie
Our reading/rocking nook
Shared space between the nursery and the office/craft containment unit
Her night-night light
The dresser/changing table
Lamp and basket (I freehanded the pattern for the basket liner and I’m so proud it actually fits!)
For my cloth diapering friends, drawer number one. Fuzzi Bunz, Happy Heinys, BumGenius 3.0s, Gro Babies and our wipes
Drawer number two, prefolds, covers and all-in-ones
Her outrageously large for a 11.75 month old stuffed animal collection
Our favorite corner of the house
I finished the back teething rail this weekend after fixing my sewing machine with a hammer (oh yes, a hammer fixed it) and took some pictures before we start making more changes to the nursery. Since Mar is such a big girl now and she loves to play (how this kid loves to play!) we’re going to get rid of the office area and make it a little playroom area for her. Hopefully that will be done before she’s five!
