[Little Room] Come Together!

Things are starting to come together.  The paint is on the walls, all I need to do it is repaint the trim a bright white and start picking out fabrics!

If you go back to my mood board, I have a TON of fabric swatches saved.  Now that we know she's a SHE (yay!), for the curtains I'm thinking of going for something with either a bit more color (like corally reds and aquas - like the swatch above) or something light an airy (like the swatch below) and then going bolder with the bedding.

I ordered the classic and ubiquitous MadebyGirl Love print in Candy Yellow, I can wait to see how it goes with my Serena & Lily Buddy and Honey Pie Designs Smile Pillows.  I already own an extra Ikea frame that it will fit, I just need to freshen up the mat inside.  Why do the mats in Ikea frames always turn so dingy??  I'm hoping a small foam roller and some white paint will do the trick...

The furniture probably won't arrive for some time (although the crib, dresser, and rocker have all be picked out!), but I plan on doing lots of little crafty projects in the mean time... art, pennants, and some repurposing of things from my own childhood.  Slowly and surely this room will come together!

    Natasha - It's def a blue a grey, almost like a chalky navy which I LOVE... it's funny bc Husband thought it was sooo dark on the swatch, but loves it now. It definitely has personality, and will be a great base color to work around.

  5. Girls stuff is so much more fun than boys!! :) It looks great so far. Can't wait to see the progress!
