We Have Crib...

Yesterday Chandler put the crib together! Well, I must say that it was a team effort! I read the directions and he actually put it together. We love how the crib looks and how it works in the room. We also put the rocking chair cushion that Jeannie made on and put the rocking chair in the room. It is starting to look like Channing's nursery and not just a blank extra room. Chandler also put the fan up and it looks perfect. We still have a lot to do with the walls. We are adding some great accents that I think you guys are going to love, but we have to let the paint sit for at least 30 days on the walls before we put the accents up! We are also working on the changing table that was mine as a little baby girl. We are painting it so that is a work in progress right now. We are also buying an armoire for the room and should have that sooner than later! We finally found a rug that is perfect for the room from Flor. I will try to post a picture of the sample we have in a few days. I do not know how well it will show up on the blog until we have the whole rug to post, but I will try. Enjoy the picture progress!!

Pieces and Parts Everywhere!

Setting up for the big 'build' and getting the directions ready!
Note: not the rug we are using... Just something to put the crib together on so we didn't scratch the new floors! Also, the walls will obviously not be bare in a few weeks...
This is how we found Benz in the middle of putting the crib together... He was sitting in Bentley's bed...His bed was only a few feet away, but I think he was pouting because he was not getting any attention!

The rocking chair Chandler's mom gave us and the cushion that Jeannie recovered for it. That is a sneak peak of some of the fabric we are using. There are a few more coordinating fabrics being used in the bedding and curtains, but you will have to wait for those pictures!
And.... The FINISHED product! We love it. Notice the pig in the crib... That was Chandler's piggy bank when he was little, his Granny made it. He put it in the room last night. We thought it went with the decor!
I even went in the room this morning, turned on the light and looked at everything. It is so fun thinking of our little girl sleeping in there in a few short months. We are getting so excited!


  1. looks awesome! I love it! Can't wait to see the room all finished!

  3. OOOHHH! The stripes on the pillows match up PERFECTLY! That looks so nice!
