psst--thanks for all the sweet comments about our newest addition! You guys are great.
I snapped all these pictures a few weeks before baby Harvey arrived and it looks so clean and empty in these photos! This is my very very favorite room in our house. It gets wonderful light and it's full of all the happiest things I had. We spent very little money 'decorating' this room, most of the things I already had on hand (I even combined leftover paint from our bedroom and the dinning room to paint the walls). Is that alarming to anyone else? That I have enough stuff to, well, stuff our four bedroom house??
Anyhoo, on with the tour!
I've posted about those painted lanterns already, and the amazing 1930's classroom map was a generous gift from a friend (I know!). If Harvey doesn't win the geography bee I'm going to be a little disappointed....
Instead of a changing table, we picked up a bookcase from ikea, turned it on it's side, and installed some drawer inserts (side note story: I am super bad at obeying instructions (too lazy? or, ahem, creative?) and while Evan was assembling all the furniture he begged me not to help, but I insisted, claiming I could build a simple set of drawers! And then he went to screw them in and wouldn't ya know it, I built them upside down.... haha ). I'm thinking this will be more functional then a changing table or dresser, as we have lots of storage for clothes in the closet, and this can be where the toys live.
and a shot of the puppet corner.
So I guess that pretty much covers it!
