So this weekend I made a bit more progress on the nursery. I still haven't started sewing anything (am planning to get started this weekend while Paul is on vacation in Vegas and I'm home alone) but I DID put some things up on the walls...
Here's the corner where the crib is. On the wall is one of my dad's vintage baby outfits and 2 vintage baby dishes- one was my dad's, the other was found at Brimfield Antique Show. The mobile is from the clearance section of Pottery Barn Kids and plays Brahms' Lullaby. I'm thinking of stenciling a quote on the wall above the mobile but haven't decided yet- any suggestions?
Here's a close-up of the outfit and the baby dishes.
Here's the wall to the right of the crib. The prints are reproductions of vintage prints, mostly from A Child's Garden of Verses. In the changing nook I hung a Lettie Lane Paper Doll print. My mom and I found this print at Brimfield too and I bought it as I have a similar one in my childhood bedroom. It's a bit on the girly side (I didn't know we were having a boy when I purchased it) but I still wanted to put it in the room somewhere. There's no glass in the frame as it was an odd size so I figured that if the baby knocks it off the wall and onto his head when he's a little older he'd be ok.
I swapped out the hanging organizer for some cubbies. This leaves room in front of them for a diaper pail.
And the final wall has more of my dad's vintage baby clothes hanging on a little clothesline. Paul doesn't really like the way it looks but when I asked him if he'd like them better in shadowboxes or displayed some other way he said "leave it for now, maybe it will grow on me." So we'll see what happens!
I think it looks cute myself!
And here's cute little lamp I bought on Ebay that has a little dachshund on it..
This is what the lamp looked like when I bought it.. Some fresh paint was all it took to bring it back to life!
This weekend I'll start sewing. I'm planning curtains on either side of the changing area, curtains for the window (we have bamboo-type blinds up so I'll just do valances probably), a crib skirt, a bumper, some pillows for the chair, things like that..
