In fact the idea came from a blanket I knit for the baby. It's a favorite and definite starting point for the nursery.
The room is far from done and these are photos from my phone (no editing and poor lighting - thus the yellow tone) but with all the craziness happening with the house and clean up, I wanted to share something that wasn't torn up and showed some actual progress. Plus, I really like how it is turning out and I am so excited to finish it and bring our little one home to this room.
I painted the walls white and the trim black which was a tedious and terrible process I will share with you more in depth another time but I am really happy how it turned out. The first few brush strokes of black terrified me and I almost regretted it but I am so glad I continued. I also painted the dresser and crib in the same black which was also tedious but worth it. And bonus, saved a TON of money. This nursery, like all rooms in our home, are all low budget productions filled with DIY projects. And I will share all about them here eventually. Hopefully others can learn from my mistakes.
Next up on the TO DO list is hanging the curtains (black), more wall art, finding/sewing a pillow for the chair, and finishing the crib and bedding. And hopefully all that will happen before this little one arrives - still have some time.
