It took pretty much the whole 9 months, but JB and I finally finished the baby's room, and I snapped a couple of photographs a few days ago. I am really happy with how it turned out. Almost everything in the room is DIY or upcycled, so we were able to put the room together very inexpensively.
I would have to say that my favorite thing in the room (when the baby isn't in there of course... ha) is my "rocking throne," as I like to refer to it in my head. We picked it up off of craigslist and it has this green-70's fabric on the cushions, so I recovered them in the red, and at that time it also wasn't a rocking chair. So handyman JB went to work and built rockers and attached them to the bottom-- cool, huh? then we painted it white. JB also built the front facing book shelves under the window.
I know it's hard to see the artwork, but there is an ABC embroidery that I made a few months ago, as well as two prints from Persimmon and Pink's Etsy shop. The wall hanging is a vintage gift from my friend Katy-- her great aunt made it and hand appliqued all those pockets for her when she had her first baby!
I sewed the crib skirt and also had an afternoon of paper-mache fun when I made the mobile. We decided that they kind of look like beehives, but I like them anyway ;)
The pictures on this wall are simply pages framed from "The Little Red Hen" which was my favorite children's story when I was little.
