While this may be as far as we’ve gotten on the physical room, I’ve been continuing to pull together some details for this space, when we ARE able to move in and set up shop for Little Man. While he may arrive even before we close on the house, and likely will sleep in our room anyway for the early weeks, I still have the nesting bug and something about pulling a room together for him (whether he NEEDS it or not right now), helps me feel more prepared and ready to meet him.
Baby’s dresser arrived at our apartment a couple weeks ago, in time to house some clothes and provide a decent surface to change him on, as we’re planning on still living there for the first couple weeks after we bring him home. His crib and glider are on order, but both are backordered several weeks, which is fine with us, as it has nowhere to go in the meantime!
A couple things pictured are items I have my eye on, another couple are items on our registry, and a couple (okay…maybe half??) are things I’ve already purchased. 🙂
The hardware in the room (curtain rods, door handles, etc) will be chrome, the trim white, and the walls SW Sea Salt. I’m planning to do white wooden blinds and DIY some navy/white strip curtain panels for the window.
The mobile is from PB Kids, and is what kicked off this whole scheme! I love the boats but don’t want to go TOO theme-ish, so adventure/water/boating/whales is lightly incorporated throughout. (I’m planning to design a little print with the words to “Row Row Your Boat” as well!) The fabrics to the left are two crib sheets I bought – the aqua from Land of Nod (along with the aqua “Things” bin), and the navy from Etsy. The arrow fabric at right is a changing pad cover, also from Etsy. The adventure pillow was a find from West Elm, the lamp and striped pouf are from Target, the picture frame from Michaels, the whales print is from an artist named Lucy Darling. The dresser is from a local furniture shop.
I’m excited for the months to turn to merely weeks as we count down to both the time I can put this room together for REAL…and meet its new tenant! 🙂
