I intended to write this a while back when I was working on sweet Deirdre's room but since being home, I have been spending more time cuddling than at a computer. Aaah, lovely priorities.
Here is baby Deirdre's room now that it is completed Having gone through the baby phase before, I had more thoughts (ie, opinions) about what I wanted in a baby room and how to organize it so that it would work for us. I also wanted to re-use James' space in a way that would be feminine but not too girly. We also didn't want to re-paint or take down the wall decal so all the choices had to work around that.
When possible, we tried to use things that we already had in the house, take advantage of hand me downs and optimize storage space!
What we decided to go with is a color palette of yellow and red to complement the silver-sage wall color. We also used a mix of wood and white-- our furniture is a blend of both so we used baskets and a mix of picture frames to make it seem intentional.
|Crib View. We purchased a new toy box and some IKEA accessories for the crib. Also featured is my awesome super cheap crib skirt and bench pad that I sewed with the help of You Tube Intelligence. The crib was a hand me down from my uncle and the pictures were moved in from the office which is now James' room. The hang it all has already been moved into the closet since James can't seem to resist the temptation of those brightly colored balls.|
