Baby's nursery has been a work in progress since very early on in this pregnancy.
I have to admit, it has ended up nothing like I imagined or planned... it has sort of come together and formed itself, but I am pretty happy with the result!
Ben and I have worked on it here and there over the last thirty or so weeks.
There are still some tweaks that we will be trying to accomplish over the following weeks, but ultimately they are not things that absolutely need doing before baby arrives, and not something I am going to stress over during the remaining short time.
There are so many little quirks that I love about Baby's nursery. Ben did an amazing job on the striped feature wall, and every time I go in there it makes me smile. He also did a fantastic job of bringing some of my ideas to life, such as the wall shelves and hanger and the cot mobile. On the side table, next to the glider is a piece of art that is a work in progress... we have to wait until baby is born to put his hand print in the middle of ours. Next to that is a very cute Gummi Bear night light and our Angel Care Sound and Movement Baby Monitor. In the cot, sits Ben and my childhood teddy bears and a cute teddy bear for baby, with our one of a kind, hand made cot mobile overhead.
I have also had some fun with wall art, creating a button letter 'J' which had significance (wink, wink) and a little notice board as well as a map of the world which still needs some artistic additions...
Then... we hit the wardrobe! We have used one of the three wardrobe bays to create a changing and storage area. This houses all of his nappies, toiletries, feeding equipment, Ben's Daddy Bag and the alternate pram attachments.
In the middle section is all of his 0000 and 000 size fold-able, clothing (the larger sizes are stored in baskets up top for the moment) and some linen (the rest of which is also in baskets up the top). The last section has two hanger rows and holds all of Baby's onesie's and jumpsuits.
Oh, and then of course there is his pram (with my funky red nappy bag attached) and his car capsule sitting back awaiting installation. Obviously these two items will not be in his room for much longer, but at the moment it is the best place to store them. Oh, and the yellow door that is currently the gateway to Baby's nursery will soon be changing to a more appropriate blue colour.
So there you have it... Baby's nursery as it currently stands. I am pretty happy with how it has turned out, especially all the little DIY components that have been fun to create and personalise just for Baby.
