Well.. it's June! Junebaby's month. Actually she's due to arrive in less than a week. And while she probably won't be sleeping in this room for months I've been trying to finish up the nursery before she arrives. I still have a few more projects I wanted to get to. I really want a shaker peg board and the hunt continues for the perfect mid-century rocking chair. And we definitely need a little chair-side table of some sort. I was going to head to the antique mall today to see what all I could find but after being woken up last night by something suspiciously contraction-like I'm calling it. Finished! for now...
Here's the finished doll quilt wall. I love it so. It turned out so much cooler than I ever imagined. I'm very tempted to cover the entire house in tiny little textiles. Or maybe I just want to cover the whole house in wood paneling and then paint it over in Benjamin Moore's Popcorn Kernal because this soft yellow makes me so dang happy. To hang the quilts I used tiny little tack nails and then either nailed them right through the quilt (hidden in the binding corners) or I sewed little loops of floss on the back of the corners and hung them on the tacks (thanks amy for the idea!).
More quilt wall pics here.
Here's the crib all decked out in its hand-me-down bedding...the pink dot bedding from dwellbaby! My friend Cindy had a girl when I had Oscar and man how jealous I was that she got pink dots.
Here's a close up of the quilt that's hanging on the crib. It's a side of that same thrifted cutter quilt I used to make the house doll quilt. It's purely decorative, I just sewed it together over the edge of the crib with a few stitches. Since these kids can't have covers for a year anyway I thought it was a perfect solution.
This vintage mobile is one of my most favorite things in the nursery. A thrift store find from Lisa and Stephanie, it's just the cutest thing, the perfect colors and it still works. I love it! Thanks girls :) xo
We bought Junebaby some new Ikea shelves to store all her treasures. I've been going a little ebay crazy and they'll be jammed full of crap very soon. Right now they're all organized and pretty with some of my favorite things like... my gorgeous birthday gift from Amy smartypants who knew I was having a girl before I did. And look how cute it is next to these perfect little booties I bought from Catarina.
Here are some of Junebaby's new dolly friends.
And finally some more fun mail I just received... curtain tie backs from Morgan. I love these funny little guys... they're salmon and gold and folky... perfect!
Phew! That's it. Only I can take a hundred pics of 3 walls. All the baby's room pics are here on flickr. Later this week... Oscar's new room, otherwise known as "babies don't like green!"
