My mom recently came to visit for a week-she left this past Tuesday- to help get the babies room together. Before she came, the crib looked like the picture above, and by the time she left, it was transformed into the picture below. The crib was a present from my mother-in-law, isn't it great?
My husband's grandmother pieced the quilt above the bed and it was our wedding gift from her six years ago. My mom and I went to the thrift store and purchased two bedskirts for $2.99 each and ripped and sewed them back together to make a bedskirt.
This white dresser was also picked up at a thriftstore about 3 years ago. It has since had legs added to it by my husband-previously it sat on the floor about 4 inches lower. He also added a rim around the top that holds the changing pad in place. It received a fresh coat of white paint and a little decorative painting along the top drawer.
Using leftover fabric from one of the bedskirts, we made a little pillow (that will eventually end up in a chair) and I learned how to make piping.
I already had these curtains but these were hemmed and blue tiebacks were added from leftover bedskirt material.
Everything is slowly coming together for a late September little girl! Thanks Mom for helping out so much and coming to see us!
We also made some little dresses- pictures coming soon!
