To hold you off until then, I thought I’d share some very preliminary photos of the nursery progress we’ve made so far. I shared our plans for the space back in this post.
My mom and I started working on the DIY Crib Skirt using this fabric (2D Zoo in Pool Blue by Alexander Henry)…
Although we didn’t really have a “tutorial” to go off of we did use this blog for inspiration, and it was really easy to create our own.
After hubby assembled the crib, my mom and I attached the front panel to see how the crib skirt looked...
And I love it!
The colors are just plain fun, and I can just imagine little William pointing to all the different animals once he starts learning how to talk :)
Here's a photo of how it ties to the crib - we didn't waste our time making the ties pretty, since they won't be seen by anyone.
The best part? Since the crib skirt attaches using ties, the skirt will adjust as we raise the bed for our growing little guy.
The other progress we've made in the nursery department is to buy a rocking chair. Nathan found this one on Craigslist for $60.
(ignore that table...we're not sure where it'll end up)
The chair came with seat cushions, but my mom and I are going to reupholster those. The rocker is the perfect size for my short stature and Nathan can fit in it just fine too. :)
So here's a photo of how things are looking these days in William's abode...
Of course, we still have lots to do:
- Paint the room, and the trim, window sill and closet doors
- Add a door to the room
- Buy curtains
- Finish crib skirt
- DIY a changing pad cover
- Reupholster Rocker seat cushions
- Lay down the rug
- Hang artwork
- Figure out something for the lighting
But this list is much less daunting and way more fun than our last big house project, so we're not complaining! ;)
