Here's where we can show off our baby spaces. I know not everyone is going with a nursery, but I'm curious how the space that's been carved out in our homes for the LO's looks.
I have a nursery (only because I had a spare room due to building an addition this summer - otherwise, no nursery). LO won't be spending much -if any- time in it anytime soon, but it's stocked with DSS's crib, and a couple old dressers I already had. It's on the main level of the house, so I suppose for nap time it'll get used.
Bought a can of mis-tinted paint for $9.99 and used some left over stain on the wood floor.
Painted one of the old dressers (found at the free store years ago) the same colour as the walls. An old Teddy Bear of mine is hanging out, waiting for baby.
This dresser used to hold all my yarn for knitting. It's been this colour for a long time (green is one of my favorite colours!!!) The small circle picture frame was a Christmas gift from SIL, and I purchased the circle mirror. My mom made the Dr. Seuss curtains and receiving blanket.
I already had the green sarong from some travels, so my mom sewed a little topper and I "installed" a friction fit curtain rod. Making shelves for the closet is on my to-do list, since right now it's just empty and things are stacked in there.
It's a VERY small room (I believe that bedrooms are for sleeping and have no illusions that this will double as a play space.) I can't remember the exact meaurements, but it's about 7 feet X 10 feet or so...
I'm still on Team Green, but I've had a couple people see the room and exclaim that I must have found out I'm having a boy... Grrr!!! I think it's a perfectly gender-neutral room.
I would love to see what other mama's have done!
