What, Carrie? You actually have interests other than decorating your son's nursery? No way!
For those of you who have been around for the past few months, you are quite probably on "Henry's Nursery Overload." I don't blame you! It's the only room of the house that needed my attention, though, and so I have slowly been pecking away at it since he was born. However, I thought I would show you a little something that my husband and I have been working on that doesn't involve the nursery!
A while back I showed you this toy chest. Not the most well-made piece, but I picked it up for $20 at Goodwill. It had some lovely tack paper inside. I will spare you. (Gross.)
My handy husband went to work on the mechanics, and installed some of those anti-slam hinges for the opening. We (well, mostly he) painted it a creamy white, and now here it is in Nina's room!
I love how it looks! But even more, I love that I have a new place to stash Nina's ever-growing collection of random toys. How many stuffed animals does one kid need? Don't answer that. I am afraid we have only scratched the surface!
The only thing I can't decide about this piece is if I want to do some personalizing on it. Maybe do Nina's name in a pale pink or green, either on the top or on the front? What do you think? Leave it plain or personalized?
