The nursery is pretty much done!!! (sorry for the terrible iPhone pictures!)
We LOVE it and can’t wait for Carson to see it. It was lots of fun making it for him and imagining him in it. It took lots of time, antique shopping, etsy shopping and
stealing borrowing ideas from pinterest…but it turned out better than we imagined. We could not have done it without lots of help from lots of people :) So here’s a long list of thank yous!!!!
First my amazing husband who painted the room, built all the furniture, spray painted lots of decorations and put up with my endless obsessing over what it was going to look like!!! He also picked out art for the room and braved Ikea on a Saturday (if you’ve ever been to Ikea on a Saturday, you know how fun that was…) :)
My dad and brother hung everything on the walls…a job that scared me and I was so glad they were happy to do! They did an amazing job! My mom and dad also got us the crib and bedding- thank you!!! Ryan’s dad helped hang the curtains :) Thanks Grandpa Bear!!! Ryan’s mom has filled Carson’s closet…once I get that organized I will post pictures!!! We LOVE all the cute clothes she has found!!! She also found a great whale book holder and whale wall hooks/art! My talented friend/coworker Allison took our maternity pictures which decorate the room. I will post more of the great pictures she took soon :) My other talented friend/coworker Pat helped me re-cover the rocker (that I got off craigs list) and make a changing pad cover! She is so crafty and such a great seamstress (she also helped me make the table rounds for our wedding). Thank you sooooo much Pat!!! My sister-in-law Krissy and my mom helped organize all the wonderful things we received at my shower (which will soon get a post with lots of pictures!). If it weren’t for them, you wouldn’t be able to see the floor ;) And a big thanks goes to my mom. She is amazing and made so many cute things for Carson and the nursery. I could name all the cute stuff she made, but it would take forever… I am trying to convince her to open an etsy shop ;) My favorite thing she made is the stuffed robot…isn’t it adorable!?!
And Stella has only eaten one baby toy…and has yet to destroy anything in the room :)
We are so lucky to be surrounded by so much love! Carson is a lucky baby!!!
