I have to say it is by far my favorite room in the house (which isn't really fair considering its only the second finished room)! We had to finish it quickly because our little Button is coming earlier than expected (thanks to his persistence of being in a breached position) so some things still need to be done; mainly just more leaves on the tree that needs to be painted. All in all, I'm so pleased with the results and so glad Hubby was willing to do so much in making this room perfect. He painted the stripes on the ceiling all by himself because he didn't want me standing on a chair at 36 weeks pregnant. <3
Okay, enough talking about it... here's the slew of photos for you all. :)
As you can see, we added a rug with lots of texture to bring in some more neutrals and warmth to the room. We also added a floor lamp for some desperately needed lighting. This room has no ceiling light so we had to improvise the lighting and placement of it.
This is the wall on the left of the crib. We added some cheap DIY'd shelves (all four in the room came to $20 including the brackets, paint, and wood!) for some much-needed storage and to draw the eyes up to the ceiling. We anchored it with a low bookshelf we snagged at target. I can't wait to fill it up with some more books as Button gets older.
We may or may not spray paint the lamp from gold to blue later down the road. Personally, I think it needs a touch up of gold paint but the Hubby is thinking blue. :P we'll see.
Next to the bookshelves is Button's reading/playing tent.
After filling it with a DIY'd faux bear skin blanket and some cheap clearance pillows, this spot has quickly become my favorite in the room!Here is a closer look inside. See the little basket? We filled it with all his board books and age appropriate books that we can change out as he gets older.
Here is the view from inside the tent. Yeah, so I may have laid in there for like an hour reading baby books and not wanting to move last night. -.-
Across from the crib is the changing area/dresser.
We finally got the mirror mounted to the wall so its baby safe.
The Hubby used latch hooks that he then hooked to a standard wall hook so that it leans but can't actually move much at all.
These are the shelves above the dresser. The basket on this shelve and the ones over the bookshelves hold all our fabric diapers, wipes, and other changing supplies.
I love this little deer candle holder that I snagged at Goodwill for 50 cents, especially since I've seen a ton of little metal critters like these at antique shops going for over $20!
Here is another shot of the antique stroller that I just had to add... just because.
Hope you all liked the tour and got lots of inspiration. <3
So, what kind of deals have you all come across these days? Anyone else finishing a room two days before a major event!? Yeah, it’s that soon. Yay to procrastination!
