Baby M's Room

Besides ticking projects off the honey do list while waiting for the arrival of Baby M, we have been working on his room. The question we get besides name and due date is our nursery theme and colors.  Our answer is always "there is none." We have no theme and no color scheme, just a collection of the things we like and think the baby will enjoy without being over decorated or too baby like.  Of course this collection of things has taken awhile to pull together and with just over a month to go is finally coming together. Here are two photos from some completed projects.
I have hung the Animal House images over the changing table which is across the room from the crib. My dad made the changing pad box so we could use an existing dresser. I still need to find what we want to use for lighting and storage on top, but so far looking good. Yes the walls are white (sorry I like white), but we did paint the ceiling blue. 

After debating getting one of the ugly glidders for late nights or something more pleasing to the eye, we ended up with a rocker from Ikea. The pillows were my christmas gift from Nick a few years ago and the roman shade was created by moi with fabric from Calico Corners. I found this amazing website - Terrell Designs that gives you how to video and measurements based on your window. Works great and with the blackout lining will make a great napping room. 

There is still so much more work to do with the crib, lighting, artwork, etc and I promise to take better photos. Stay tuned, we only have a few more weeks to get it completed.

Home and Garden Fair

For the next week and half is the local Home and Garden Show. Nick has a booth with the Nursery and if I must say is the best 10x10 booth in the place. They are located in the building with the display gardens and he is getting great expose. Here are some action shots I took while visiting him on Saturday. Nick has much better images, before the doors opened which I will try to snag from his camera later.
Huge thanks to our friends Jen and Marit for all their work with the print material. Plus the best item - Keep Calm and Garden On (you can see it in the first photo). My small contribution to the entire booth as the green pillow on the chair, not much but still a nice detail.

Other exciting news for Nick is in the summer he is doing a green roof at the Parade of Homes. More on that this summer (not until July). Congrats Nick!!
