    Default Evolution of a nursery (XP/OT) **Updated #15 with LO**

    I know I put up a pic of the mural we made for Kaelan a while back but I just got some photos my dad had taken of the place before and I was thinking of making it into a LO. I never put up pics of his nursery in general before, maybe that's because it wasn't finished until a couple of weeks ago . I am a little slow I guess compared to all of the ladies who had everything done way before their LOs' arrival. I thought it would be fun to show the evolution of everything. I'm thinking it will make a great double LO with a decent amount of journalling. Any ideas for it? I am going to have to really look through all my papers and embellishments so I can make it extra special.

    This is the room before anything was done to it:


    Then we started painting:


    and doing the mural:


    and finally we installed new carpeting, filled it in with furniture, and made it a real nursery:



    Now it is almost all done. I still have curtains to install, a monkey rug still in its packaging, a jungle themed lamp to put in, and some picture frames with some professional shots to hang. Maybe it will be all done before I'm prego with a second .

    Very pretty, I love the DETAILS title. I think I will try to pick up some cute papers for it at Archivers today. I'll bring the photois along so some of the colors can coordinate like yours do.

    I LOVE the room. Kaelan's a really lucky fellow. I love the rocker being right by the mural so he can look at it while you rock.

    Just wanted to warn you though, because I've btdt... once Kaelan can pull himself up in the crib, he will start to pull on the blinds and break them, or otherwise manipulate them to let in sunlight and keep himself up. It's just inevitable over time... kids break anything they can. (You should see the wallpaper border in my kid's room, or what's left of it, and the ratty pull shades they've "experimented" with) So around 8 or 9 months you may have to rearrange the room a little.
