van’s Nursery- Part 4

October 17th, 2010

So it was a VERY busy weekend working on van’s nursery.  Thankfully I had reinforcements- aka my Mums- to help.

Here’s a quick run down of what we accomplished:

  • clipped tags off all the baby clothes, washed them, and then put them into the cool drawer organizers that Mr. vB made me
  • cleaned the wooden blinds and window sills in the bay window, where the glider and night stand now reside
  • bought all the necessary items to make the crib skirt and the crib bumpers (ie, lining, cording, batting, thread) pending the fabric ever arrived {sore subject}
  • got a fabulous and highly needed pedicure
  • created a bulletin board with a darn cool frame
  • covered existing white lampshade with coordinating crib fabric
  • FINALLY steamed wrinkles out of the glider slipcover
  • and last but not least, as fabric arrived late Saturday afternoon, started to make the Crib Skirt

Yeah- I think that about covers it.

And it you can believe it, we still have about another weekend’s worth of little projects to complete and THEN the nursery will be finished!!! Hooray!! It’s almost reveal time.  I know you guys are excited.  But I’m ahead of myself.  Here are some photos of the projects from this weekend.

The drawer of pure organization, I mean clean clothing.

And most importantly the FABRIC!

{it was a long hard search, but I am really happy with what we finally selected!!}

I’m working on posts now to show the breakdown of how we made the drawer organizers, bulletin board, and lamp shade cover!   They were all pretty easy!  Make sure to check back for the details!

{Thanks again Mums for all your hard work this weekend!! van and his momma really appreciate it!! xoxo}

    Wow, no wonder I was so tired when I arrived home in Newport News. We certainly did accomplish a lot, but it was fun. We always have such a good time together. The crib skirt is coming together. Had to take the machine in today for repairs, just a little glitch in the process. The handle on the bobbin case broke off and I couln’t sew. but it was fixed today and the sewing has been renewed.
