I painted them (with a free sample of Valspar paint in "Herb Cornucopia") and Nick got them onto the board. They were a gift from Austin's grandparents and they were the perfect finishing touch.
(Although it was a little hard to paint since I still can't feel my hands!)
I finally settled on this Lolli Living "Animal Tree" crib bedding set. It was really hard for me to pick a theme. Everything was animals or trucks or boats and I just couldn't make up my mind.
I liked that this set had a monkey but wasn't over the top monkeys everywhere. There was an owl and a lion too!
Speaking of monkeys, remember this guy? He has been with us since 16 weeks (read week 16 here). I've played the Snugamonkey music almost every night for baby Austin. We love the whole Snugamonkey line and have the bouncer and the swing too!
I fell in love with this print from Dalloway Place on Etsy. You can order it in any color you want and in several different sizes. (This one is 11x14.)
The owl print actually came off of a gift bag! It was a perfect color match with the bedding set and the paint and it fit perfectly in the 5x7 frame. I have one more frame to hang but I want to wait until I have a family photo for it.
I can't wait to bring my little man to church in this one.
The gorgeous lamb blanket was hand made from Nick's grandma. All the Cordero babies get one.
Another thing I love about his room is the light that comes in through this window. The white chiffon curtains helped to create the bright, airy look I was going for.
I really, really wanted to get the chair by the window so I could rock him and stare out the window but it just didn't look right there.
We will have to toughen up the look of this room as the munchkin gets older. We can change the aqua paint to a darker blue and make everything more masculine.
For now though ... it looks exactly how I envisioned it.
