So it’s real. It’s happening. We are starting to put together our kiddo room. I have lots of plans, and they’ve changed since the last time I posted about it. Here they are. (MIND YOU, we have changed our age to 2 and under now, still open to two children.)
Then…For bedding and crib skirts. I plan on making this crib skirt for both cribs http://www.domesticadventure.com/2010/10/how-to-make-a-crib-skirt/ in different colors. So the giraffe, elephant, and dandelion will all be sheets, the strips, chevron, and cool design will be the crib skirts/skirt for the changing table. (these are all found at fabric.com, from left to right and top to bottom. Premier Prints Lulu Stripe True Turquoise, Premier Prints Gisella True Turquoise, Premier Prints Zig Zag Chartreuse/White, Premier Prints Small Dandelion Coral/White, Premier Prints Ele Chartreuse/White, Premier Prints Maze Coral/White)
I am going to have a thrifted dresser probably painted turquoise, but I’m not certain of it. That will go on the right wall looking into the bedroom We’ll have white curtains for the window, in addition to a black out roller curtain I think. I also want a big grey oversized arm chair/recliner and probably a cubbie system which will go on the opposite wall. Like Ikea’s turquoise Expedit. So I guess if I do a turquoise bookcase/cubbie, I shouldn’t do a turquoise dresser.
Above the cribs, one on each side, I’m going to make some cute little posters we’ll frame that will say “ You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.” on the left, and over the right crib “You make me happy, when skies are grey.”
Also we are going to buy two of these mobiles, and I’m going to make some felt animal face to hang down from them(http://www.amazon.com/Kikkerland-Randon-Hanging-Photo-Mobile/dp/B001A06WD8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392252209&sr=8-1&keywords=picture+mobile%27)
I know this may seem silly to some of you, Joseph and I had this discussion last night. This may be our only chance to put together a nursery, so I’m going all out.
