As previously mentioned, we have started to shop around for baby stuff, and it is FUN. I have never really been a fan of pink, I was always a purple kind of gal, but there are some really cute things you can do with a pink baby room.
I would like to paint the walls green- something light and fresh, something that could be used for our little girl OR a future boy baby. Something along these lines…
The crib that I totally fell in love with is like one million dollars at Pottery Barn Kids- but I received a secret tip that there were some pottery barn cribs at the Down East outlet here in Sandy. Sure enough, they have the exact crib I had been swooning over, just at 60% off! (Thanks Candace!) We haven’t purchased just yet… where do you store a giant pre-assembled crib?
Next…bedding. I am kind of particular in this area, only because I want the baby bedding to be beautiful and girly without having Dora the Explorer stuck all over it. There are a lot of really ugly crib sets out there and I am pretty sure I have seen them all now. So far this one is my favorite:
Of course, what room would be complete without some Ikea furniture. Also, my pregnancy brain has made it impossible to spell furniture without the aid of my spell checker. (Twice now. nice.)
This would theoretically be a changing table with a pad on top. I am not crazy about the idea of having a built in changing table on top because I would like to be able to have some versatility here. Not to mention, some babies love a changing table, some babies hate them. We will see. Wouldn’t it be cute to swap the knobs out for some cute anthropologie hardware?
I’m a tad obsessed with this bookshelf. It would be perfect for books, toys, picture frames, basket drawers full of onesies and diapers… I mean it is a total dusting nightmare, but it would be so cute in the baby’s room. And with Ikea, you know you aren’t going to spend a ton of dough.
A realize that coveting is a sin, but I’m pretty sure there is a clause somewhere in there that says “except for Anthropologie stuff, you may covet that all the live long day.” Here is the Buzzing Garden Shade by Anthro. I saw it at the store last week and tried to fit it into my purse. It didn’t fit. And it’s also illegal.
As soon as Jazz reads this blog, his eyes will roll into the back of his head and he will start foaming at the mouth, his hands will shape into dollar signs and he will pass out. He will come around though, just give him some air, he will be fine.
So, what do you think?
