Finally. This mamma is breathing a long sigh of satisfaction. One more thing to cross off my "baby-do-before-he's-due" list. And it's not even womb baby's room. We now have three cribs in our house. Three. Two of them were given to us (isn't that wonderful?) The twins are almost two years old but I couldn't bring myself to switch them to toddler beds just yet. They sleep so well and are so nicely contained in their cribs. I'll let them adjust to the new baby and then we'll try turning them loose.
I am so thankful that I didn't break the piggy bank for this room. From start to finish, we've spent less than $100. The most expensive item was the fabric for the curtains I made. The dresser was given to us and we painted it and the bookcase. The walls were washed in a fresh new color. All of the other little odds and ends that make this room unique I found at thrift stores or in my attic. Scrapbook paper and vintage children's books from my childhood home were framed. And the two little babies now sleeping in their beds-- are memories in the making.
