The Baby’s Room

I have been working on the baby’s room with the hubs for several weeks now. It has gone a lot slower than I wanted and it’s at a stand still now that Spring is here and we are going full gear with the Lawn Care business. Still we only have a few things to finish it up and I will be so excited to be done!

For now, here’s a little preview of what we have completed so far!

Here is a wheelbarrow that one of John’s brothers made him when he was little. I think it is so cute and wanted to incorporate it into the room. I decided to use it for the children’s books John and I have had since childhood and some are also new that I have been collecting since we first began trying to have kids.

My aunt got a couple of baskets for the baby and I just love them. This one we use for diapers and wipes. The other we use for his toys.

My aunt and her mom (my Nana) sent baby a couple of gift cards to Walmart for Christmas so we bought a few items he needed, including this dresser and changing pad.

The next two images are my favorite part of the room. John is on the fire department and I wanted to incorporate that into the room. Last July I took this image of their Engine 1 Pumper truck. On my side of the family we have a lot of service men (Firemen, Police Officers, Military, etc.) and those who were firemen were the Engineers (including John) so I thought this was perfect to use. I used photoshop to create a stencil of the truck and then painted a fire truck boarder around the room.

I love the colors of the room. It’s a bit difficult to see the difference of the white and cream, but it’s there. John helped pick the colors are. For the lower half of the wall I used Affluent Cream. For the Upper half I used Rich White. For the dark blue border I used Prussian Blue and the lighter blue was Live Wire. For the red fire trucks I used Mendocino Red (acrylic paint.)

Hopefully by the end of summer we’ll have the room done and I’ll post more as we get it finished!
