A room for the behbeh.

We were so excited when we finally finished girlfriend's little room! It feels good to have everything prepared and laid out - gives me a sense of having things together (although I'm sure we will discover there is plenty we do NOT have together once she gets here.)

Lot's of greens and pinks, and a slight "classic" Winnie the Pooh theme. That changing table? That so nicely matches (oh how I love matching) the other furniture? $10 off Craigslist bay-to-the-bee.

Here are some crib details - my mother (soon to be Mamaw to her first grandchild) made the beautiful Pooh Bear bumpers, blanket, curtains (as seen in another post), and even some flannel Pooh Bear sheets for when the colder weather comes. And my aunt made the quilt. Lot's of homemade going on here, which I LOVE. Love love. And that super adorable mobile? Found it at a (rather sketchy looking but turned out to be awesome) garage sale for $15!

Sometimes I just stand in the middle looking around at everything, thinking about the daughter (what?!?!) that we will soon have living in there. Then I feel kind of corny and leave.

But soon find my way back in there again.

Here are a few "before" pics.

This dresser has been passed around quite a bit - it started out as my mom's when she was a kid, then it was mine and my brother's, and now it's here. It's also seen it's share of refinishing!

Babies. Rooms for them. Awesomesauce.

  1. It looks great and I'm so happy for you that it's all done, what a relief! I totally feel ya too...I have a habit of just gazing around her room and thinking of how crazy and wonderful it all is, then leaving, then coming back. It can't be helped! :)
