It’s nursery time y’all! Why I pushed getting it together until after the peas were born, I don’t know. It’s taking me f o r e v e r! However, it’s evolving thanks to some same-schedule naps the twins took this week.
Much improved thanks to a little decluttering, new, girlie curtains, and a snazzy new fan fixture (and minus uno crib currently in the master). As for the curtains, the green ones weren’t meshing with the new color scheme for the room so I officially went on the hunt for something new. I found it in the form of some Target, patterned sheers that I scored for 5 bucks a pop, hemmed to fit, and slapped up. (Sorry for the bad picture…still working on learning how to use the DSLR.)
Pretty but the room needed some color so I went on another official hunt for some peachy-pink fabric to line the new sheers with. After searching for fabric, sheets…something cheap…I finally settled on some thin broadcloth from Hancock Fabrics that I got for $16 during a 60% off sale. The only issue was that the broadcloth was only 45 inches wide, whereas my sheers were 54. So, I had to do what I do best and improvise.
To do so, I cut two 54 inch pieces of fabric for each sheer, sewed them together to create one long panel, hemmed each edge, and then hemmed each to the length of the sheer it would back. See the connecting seam?
As for the closet, it never did have doors to cover it’s insides so I went with the most simple solution of spray painting an old tension rod, slipping on some curtains rings, and hanging the similarly constructed fabric right on up.
I love the flavor and texture it adds to an otherwise b.o.r.i.n.g. but necessary light fixture. What do you think? Is it too big or does it fit your fancy? I’m thinking of painting the fan blades a light taupe to match…should I or shouldn’t I?
. . .
Well, there you have it. A nursery fit for two. There’s still lots and lots to be done including painting the dresser and lining it’s drawers, recovering the rocking chair (currently in our room), making some sort of a foot rest, whipping up some crib skirts, getting some stuff hung on the walls, turning a tablecloth into a rug, making a window seat cushion, and a surprise that I’m working on next! Whew!
It might take me a few more weeks (dare I say months?) but it’s going to be the cutest nursery on the block (in my vain opinion)! Check back in as I post my progress!
Have a funderful, wonderful weekend!
