E's Nursery

Okay, today I decided to post a few pictures of E's nursery. I know she is almost 4 months but better late than never. The real reason for the post is because (God willing) this weekend her daddy is going to be putting up her shelves he built for her so we need some before and afters.

This is her crib and wall decal. The decal turned out amazing. My dear friend, E-beth, came over and help a very pregnant lady's vision come true. What a blessing to have someone so willing to help out! I think it looks so great in her room. I love it and we even impressed the hubby by how accurate we were in measuring for the crib. I use we very loosely here, I simply did the leaves the rest was done by E-beth.

Please ignore the storage bag under her crib. A future project in the making. It is a storage bag we had on hand already and decided to use for her excessive amount of blankets.

Here is a different angle of her wall and crib. On the far right you can see a bare wall. That is the spot for her shelves. (It is the best picture I had at the time.)

Below is the daybed in her room with owl pillows my friend, MAC, made for her. Aren't they just the cutest? The pink & yellow striped pillows were made by none other than myself. I think they turned out cute, if I say so myself. The rest of the pillows and comforter we already owned. And on the far top left hand side is the Sesame Street Alphabet poster I pick up for $5 at the JBF sale. It is perfect for her room.

Here is a full view of the day bed and rocker. Notice the windows. They give such amazing light in her room. I am still working on the whole curtain issue. I want something light and bright but haven't found what I am looking for. I did start some plain white curtains but gave up after the first set. Notice that on the left there are curtains but not on the other. It is a work in progress, what can I say?

This is her dresser/changing table. I really wish I had pictures of the before. Her daddy worked so hard on this and I think it is so beautiful. Again, a little shoot out to E-beth, who walked us through the whole refinishing of the dresser over the phone. E loves looking at herself while we change her diaper. I love it because it is not new and it has character but mostly because her daddy worked so hard on it. I can't help but smile when I see it in her room.

(This pic. isn't the best but you can see the bare wall where her shelves will be in the reflection of the mirror.)

Here is a close up of J's hardwork. Isn't it a beauty? The handles are original to the piece. J decide to just spray painted them. They turned out great and I love them!

Stay tuned for the updated pictures of her bare wall and new shelves!

A Little Late...

Tuesday was my hubby's birthday and our anniversary.

It was a great day. I dropped off the baby and surprised him by returning home to pick him up for breakfast. Before E we always had breakfast on his day off then would run around and rummage through Habitat for Humanity or go to Home Depot. We are crazy like that. Since E we haven't gone out to have breakfast together. So we did all the things we use to do before her. And it was fun. It made us grateful for the time we got to spend together but also reflect on how much life has changed.

Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary to the most amazing guy!! Love You!
