The Completed Project

It is finally ready! Well.... I am still waiting for my brilliant Engineer husband to find a way to hang the tacked-up window coverings I made to fit our 60's odd-shaped window frames...but I am not doubtful of his abilities, and for now they are blocking light :)


Anyway, I digress. The baby room is done! I have crafted, sewed, dyed, and spray painted myself to death, but it was all worth it. Please note the name above the orange stars (it is on the wall, but we reserve the right to change it until it is officially on the birth certificate!).

I am now 10 days from the due date, and ready to roll. I am not completely sure why I felt the burning desire to completely re-do the baby room, but possibly since this is our third boy I needed to do something a little different. It was fun, but since I am not especially crafty nor a gifted seamstress, I am glad to be done.


Enjoy the pictures!

Yay! Looks so good! Any signs of labor yet? If you're still feeling nesty you can help me make a mobile/dangly thing for Peyton and Aly's room. :)

LOVE IT!! Everything is so cute. Kari did a great job on the blanket. Love the mobile and the cut-outs of the animals. What did you use for the four "pictures" above the crib?

Jude is an awesome name! I love that! You have to keep it. I consider myself crafty but my rooms never, ever look so professionally done. We hardly ever get to see you so I love being able to follow your blog. We are anxiously awaiting Jude's birthday. Three is a wild ride, but so much fun.
