Design, Eat, Travel….Repeat!
Well this is it, the final post about Daniel’s nursery. I don’t think I could drag it out any more for you Zealots. I was able to capture some pictures over the weekend while I had the helping hands’ of my husband around. I just love the way it all turned out and I know this because as I stare off into space during 2 a.m. feedings I can’t stop smiling…then again that could be caused by sleep deprivation! Well I’ll let you judge the rest!
When it came to finding crib bedding, I knew there was only one solution…go custom. The fabricator that does all of the work for our design projects offered to make my bedding and window treatments as a gift, so I really could not pass it up. They are such miracle workers and always go the extra mile. Thanks Eddie and Jean Parish of the Sewing Center!
I also wanted to add something special to the art going in the room. I found these custom-made prints on Etsy from Texas Girl Designs. Two of the prints are sheet music with the lyrics to my favorite childhood songs that my mother sang to me. I wanted to carry on the tradition with my son (it’s a good thing he doesn’t know I’m completely tone deaf). The center picture is a map of New Mexico, where I grew up, and the owl represents my husband. He’s known among friends as “the wise ol’ owl”.
My mother-in-law kept my husband’s childhood teddy bear and now he’s taking his place in the crib…or the floor when the baby is sleeping!
I had the UGA and Braves prints made from a vendor on Etsy….I love the site! Check out Pigeon Editions page.
I love a chevron print and the visual interest it brings to a space. My second favorite thing about this picture, the TV. It’s really just a computer monitor hooked up for watching Netflix. Judge lightly….it helps pass the time!
I really enjoyed making this room for Daniel. This was the first room in our home that I was able to buy everything and make it all work together. I hope my little man enjoys his room and I hope you enjoyed taking this journey with me.
Happy designing Zealots!
