Like I mentioned last week, I just haven't had the energy to get Henry's nursery completed! Maybe it's because he's still sleeping in a bassinet in our bedroom, and we really only go in there to change his diapers. And why does a 5 week old baby need a fancy nursery just to bare his bum? :)
Nevertheless, here are a few little things that we have done. I love this crib bumper, the vintage look of the stars, and the red color with the rich wood of the crib.
My favorite neighbor and friend, Aimee (remember how I showed you her house?), lent me these lamp shades from her daughter, Lulu's, nursery. Lulu is now four years old and isn't missing them! This lamp sits on a dresser that used to be in my husband's room as a child, and the mirror frame is made from reclaimed boards from an antique wagon. It was a fun little shopping purchase from the days before Brent and I were married...you know, when we had time to leisurely wander the antique shops and hold hands!
Below is my next project. The current curtains in the nursery are a little girly-girl for Master Henry, so we will be changing them out just as soon as I can get my act together. I love the look of these, but Henry might not appreciate lilies of the valley as he gets older!
So, next I will be tackling the window treatments, and I will tell you for sure that it will involve a serious mistreatment of some fancy-schmancy curtains. The Nester would be proud. I'll be showing them to you soon!
