Michael decided to tackle the piles of paperwork on Sunday. So I decided to tackle some nursery projects.
I started by hanging up pom poms.
I ordered them from this etsy seller.
This actually took much longer than I thought. I had to open them all up.
Michael had to actually hang them for me. I couldn't reach the ceiling... even on the step stool.
I ordered the ten pack because they were on sale. I wasn't planning on using all 10. I figured I'd use 7 or something. Turns out 9 was perfect.
I'm not sure if you can tell, but there are actually 3 different colors of pink.
They are very close together in color. I had to go with the 3 lightest pinks available.
I'm so glad I did. I was tempted to go with a brighter pink, but I don't think it would have looked as good. Also, they came in 5 different sizes. Although some are pretty similar.
After taking forever to hang poms, I used some more of the clear push pins and hung the quilt.
Since I can't paint a tree on the wall... and the quilt can't be used on the baby anyway... this added some more color and decoration. Love it!
Next, I hung the "O". I found the frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.
I have no idea why I can't take a straight picture.
I promise the frame and O are straight. I even took 3 attempts at this picture.
Apparently pregnancy has thrown off my balance?! When all else fails... blame it on pregnancy! :)
I found this cute little glittery bird at Buy Buy Baby.
It's hard to see the white glittery outline, but it's super cute.
I hung it right above the changing table
There was a really cute picture I saw at a baby boutique. It was pink and had birds and flowers.
Unfortunately, it was a small fortune.
After looking at their online selection, I found a smaller (and cheaper) picture that I liked.
Plus, I liked that it wasn't pink.
It was still a little pricey, but I felt justified. :)
I am having a make shift nursery with no paint, etc.
One sort of expensive picture was OK in my book.
I also like that it has green (and some blue) in it. It will work when we paint the room green.
Target has a few things that are made by the same artist. I bought the nightlight.
I ended hanging the extra pom pom on the other side of the room.
I actually hung the curtains with clear push pins. Yep, I did.
Mostly because it's temporary.
But also because I didn't feel like trying to drill curtain rods in apartment walls.
I bought some wall decals at Target as well.
Unfortunately, we have textured walls (it's a Texas thing), so I'm not sure they are going to stay up.
My sister Rockie sent us this sign.
It came the day before decorating, and I decided to hang it above the door.
Again, you can't tell, but it is very glittery. :)
(See, the O is straight!)
I plan on getting some floating shelves for above the changing table.
I just haven't found any I like/that match.
I also left a space between the changing table and crib for the diaper champ.
