Happy April! It's officially the month of my due date - woo hoo! I thought it would be fun today to share pictures of the room we have for Lemonhead - he won't be sleeping there for awhile (he'll be in a bassinet/co-sleeper near our bed for the first few months), but we'll definitely be using it in other ways.
Let me just start this post by saying, I am not a craft-type person. Sure, I knit, but that's about where it ends. I don't enjoy DIY projects, or really even decorating things to an extent. So I was shocked when I enjoyed the whole process of pulling Lemon's room together.
We rent, so we didn't paint walls (these are the color they were when we moved in); we did use a decal, but otherwise it's just frames hung on the walls for decoration. Also, I am humbled at how little money we spent on his room, because we found such good deals on things, already had some furniture, and were gifted everything else. Maybe that's why I love this space so much - I can feel the love of the community around us, already supporting this little boy.
But enough talking, right? Below are pictures of the space - not in the best light (it was mid-afternoon when I took them), but I was tired, and wanted to pack the camera back up in the hospital bag - ha!
As you enter:
Sharon Montrose's work for years, so when a friend gifted us these baby animal prints I squealed in delight!
Read Between the Lines - it was one of the first things I saw months ago, and told myself if we got "far enough" in the pregnancy I'd let myself buy it for the baby.
a fabulous Etsy shop to create this custom decal for over Lemon's crib. This is the second verse of the lullaby I sing to him every night - it's from Mary Poppins and always makes me smile because it's all about reverse psychology. Never too early to do what needs to be done for sleep, am I right?
30th birthday party!
So there you have it! Lemon, your room is ready - you just have to get here so you can enjoy it!
