I’m slowly getting things together for Boyshteyn’s room. We can’t really do much until the walls are painted & the flooring replaced, but I at least have some plans now.
The furniture was fairly simple. We were pretty sure that we wanted a convertible set that could at least become a toddler bed. I fell in love with a set at Babies R Us & got an amazing deal. The special at the time I ordered was purchase the glider, crib, & dresser to get the changing table for free.
I placed my order the last day of the special & once I hit send got a message telling me that the crib wasn’t available so the it & the changing table had been removed. I called the next day & it was actually in stock, so they set it up for me to get the crib at 20% off for the inconvenience & the changing table was still free! Go Babies R Us! This is our set:
I’m having the bedding made. After searching I couldn’t find anything I liked at all. Then I finally found some awesome stuff but it was well over $300 for a three-piece set & I just couldn’t justify spending that much on bedding! I found someone on Etsy who had the same fabric & is making a larger set for much less. It includes a bumper with a removable cover (so it can be washed), two sheets, a bed skirt, a blanket (to be used when he’s older), & two curtains.
This is what the bedding will look like:
The curtains will be in the same stripe pattern as the bed skirt & the blanket will be a combination of the three. Similar to this (Thanks for the quick photochop work, Tara):
The light! I love the light. I really had no plans on changing the light that is in the room, but Misha found one at Ikea the other night that we both liked. I think it will be really cute in there!
My Twitter friend, Julia, sent me a link to a nightlight this morning & I think it’s perfect:
So far that’s it. We’re going to put some plants in there (hanging spider plants are recommended for baby rooms) & we’re going to look at flooring this week because we want to have that replaced soon. The carpet in that room isn’t in the best shape. Misha wants to put photographs on the walls. I think pictures of the puppy girls would be cute.
I need to pick a paint color very soon. I’m considering just going with a neutral cream color. I don’t think I want the typical blue room because there’s so much blue in there already with the bedding. I had planned on going with a caffè latte color (the same color our living room used to be & the entryway is now), but I’m just not sure. Suggestions?
