So! Thanks to my dear sisters, and a very diligent day of snipping, sewing, gluing and painting, we are done with the baby’s room!

Theme: Yellow & gray.
Motif: Birds & Hedgehogs.

I GREATLY desired to make at least a little something for my little girls room, so I grabbed some pretend vintage prints and whipped up a crib skirt. I absolutely refused to make baby bumpers or my own sheets. Perhaps when she’s soiled all the clean ones, I’ll whip up a few for her. Yellow & grey birdy fabric w/ stenciled hedgehogs? YES. Here is the progress, along with a snapshot of some CUTE little burp-clothes (gifts from a dear friend, dyed old cloth diapers and stitched fabulous ribbon on. Love love love.) and the little white IKEA boxes that now hold all sewing materials.

And here we have a better view of the window, with the fabulous curtain made by Aunty M., along with the gorgeous lamp, and tidy shelves.

My sweetheart and I put up the shelves after a long day out at IKEA with my sisters. Quite a challenge hanging such usefulness from drywall, plaster and molly bolts. But. We managed, and put yet another “old-house” notch in our belts. And now they look stunning.

You’ve seen these items before…our dear little girls Going HOME outfit! The jumper was worn by my husband, and I wore the booties. Thanks to Aunty J & M, the little rosettes were added for our little girl. How fitting that her outfit matches her room. 🙂

And finally, little peep at her changing table (tucked into an open closet), snugabunny and new diaper bag.

Luckily, the room was already painted a beautiful whisper yellow, so I just added crib, curtains, rug, shelves and artwork. Simple transformation overall, but it took a bit of time, as mama bird seems to be moving slower than usual these days. Perhaps its the beautiful bump that keeps on growing 🙂 A heartfelt cup of THANK YOU to all my dear sisters (Aunty J, aunty M, aunty R, and aunty L!) for getting it truly 100%!
