I finally started decorating Mary Ellen's room this weekend. We had painted the room (a color called gleeful that Sean picked out, and I loved the name, so I went with it) about a month ago, but up until yesterday, we hadn't done anything else. It was starting to loom over me a little. I am by no means done. I still have bare walls and need some more furniture, curtains, and a rug (if I can find a cheap, cute one that matches - no easy task!), but here are a few pics of what I spent my Saturday morning doing......
got the idea to do the above garland at The Nesting Place, my new fav decorating site!
The pictures in the above photo were given to me for FREE from my sweet sister in-law about a year ago, and even though they didn't match Hattie's room, I couldn't pass up the fact that they were free, and I'm glad I didn't because they look PERFECT in Mary Ellen's nursery. Thanks, Missy!
And speaking of those pictures, thanks to Mimi for providing an extra pair of eyes and hands for helping me hang them since I got it in my head that I wanted them straight across from each other on the longest wall in the nursery. With her by my side, I didn't put too many holes in the wall before we got the job done!
And thanks, Honey, for taking Hattie away for the day so I could decorate without little hands curiously getting into everything behind me :).
Question: Where can I find a cute (cheap) white bookshelf? I got Hattie's two years ago at LOWES for about $30, but they don't carry them anymore. Target's are too expensive. I haven't checked Walmart yet, but after that, I'm out of ideas.
Hopefully I'll have more pictures to share of a completed nursery in the next couple of weeks!
And then a sweet, new baby GIRL (she better come out a girl now!) to put into the nursery a few weeks after that.
