To “celebrate” let’s talk about the nursery. It’s just about finished. Before we share true “DONE!” photos… we just want to show off a few of our recent additions – filling up those wall spaces that were lacking. First up, the original piece by “Grandreama:”
Isn’t that fantastic?!
We shared in our last post that the two paintings she gave us are amazing – but just didn’t fit into the aesthetic of our space. Here they are:
(If you’re super-observant, you’ll notice that we painted the holder for our changing table pad white. Poll results were an even tie between white and yellow. Don’t worry, yellow fans – we’re working on another addition that will dry your tears… because you’re certainly all broken up over this.)
The two birds on the right represent us (Mr & Mrs Dreamer) the smaller one is the wee one in the oven – and there’s plenty of room on that wire for future chicks. The artist promises to add them when that time comes. We love the symbolism behind it and the way it fits perfectly in the nursery.
Here’s the other side of the room…
You’re probably thinking, “Wait a minute! I thought you decided against the lamb painting?” We did, it’s just a placeholder. We’re planning on ordering a newborn portrait of the bebe on a 16×20 canvas – and the lamb happens to be that size. So, it was perfect for planning out that wall space… bebe photo flanked my portraits of mom and dad at 6 months…
More on those later – the girl child may have a mullet and double-chin, while the boy is the cutest darn thing in creation. Both frames were a simple, cheap DIY project and we’ll share more about that soon… it will give me something to do while sitting around not going into labor.
Now, back to gestating…
