The Baby's Room

So, the baby's room is finally done!  I actually had a lot of fun putting this together.  I never went into it with a "theme".  I knew I wanted to do wood alphabet letters in lots of different colors and patterns, but beyond that I had no idea where this was going to end up.  I stuck to mostly blues in all different shades and threw in some green here and there as well.  We wanted to do something that could easily transition into a "little boy's room" once he gets old enough to proclaim what he wants.  I really do love it and cannot wait to spend time with our little guy in there. 

Looking in from the hallway
Alphabet Wall - Opposite from the crib. I figure it will be something for him to look at when he's older and chilling out after a nap or whatever. Ha! This is probably the most "creative" thing I've ever done on my own and I've got to say I'm quite proud of it!!

The corner of the room I had no idea what to do with. I thought some colorful paper lanterns (not lit) would be cute.

The dresser and changing area.  The pictures above are of our little family, some will be replaced with baby pictures once we have them.

The bookcase and storage area.  The picture is the movie poster for "Matchmaker Mary". Our little Missy dog was used in it while she was a "waif" at Wayside when we were waiting to adopt her, so her picture is on it several times. I went to the big movie premier (ha!) when it came out and got this poster thinking I'd put it in a baby's room one day.  We also own the movie and I'm sure we'll watch it with the kid someday! 

I have a feeling we'll be spending plenty of time here.

Organizing closets is not my strong suit, especially ones this small, but this neat organizer thing really helps. Clearly, this is still a work in progress...

Ted's always checking on me.

Now we just need a baby!!

I love the room!! Can't wait to see the baby in it!!

DId you pick out a name for him and "reveal" it? I don't think so, but if you did, i missed it!!

It's been great following your pregnancy, and I can't wait to see the little guy, and watch the pictures as he grows!!

Where did you find the letters? I would like to do the same for my baby's room and like the combo of letters you used.

I found all the letters at Hobby Lobby. They were kind of scattered throughout the craft section.

Hi Stephanie,
I LOVE your alphabet wall and would love to re-create it. Can you tell me how you recovered them/decorated them so well? I would be willing to purchase if you are willing to sell yours or make another :) Let me know your thoughts!! Thanks so very much!
