Nursery Art Work

I hope everyone had a great weekend. One out of four of my flower pots got knocked over from the hurricane but that seemed to be the only damage. It was worth it though because Sunday the weather was so gorgeous. We decided to take a drive to Ikea to browse cribs which my mother so kindly said she would purchase for her fifth grandchild (yikes!). Once we got there we walked around the entire store looking for cribs to no avail. We asked a sales associate where they were and she let us know that they all had been recalled since they weren't up to standards and wouldn't be back until December. At least we had a nice drive out there. I really wanted to get a crib so I can start decorating more so we headed to Babies R Us. They had a simple white one in stock that was perfect! We purchased it and set it up after we finished touching up the rest of the paint on the walls. I still have yet to pick fabrics/bedding but am confident it will all come together. For art work I wanted something whimsical (and purple) but was having a hard time finding anything. I though I could find a few pictures online and print them out but it proved harder than I thought to have had someone else read my mind on what I was looking for. So I created my own. I used a photo editing program and had these three photos printed. This is as crafty as I will ever get so don't judge how lazy my DIY artwork is. My mother in law is going to make curtains once I find a nice fabric. I look forward to everything coming together!

Feel free to save and have these printed if you like them. Works best on an 8x10 print.

Looking forward to photos of the nursery. They are really fun to decorate. I used the same crib & bedding for all 3 of my kids & have it in storage for the grandkids(!!!!!)

I got my crib and dresser from Babies R Us too! I think they have a good selection for reasonable prices. I didn't like any of the IKEA baby stuff. BUT they do have good KID stuff. I am headed there soon for new toys for Leah!

Why would anyone knock your artwork- it's awesome! Seriously. Glad you found a crib- you'll have to show us the end result!!

Love to decorate nursery, Joshua is all winnie the pooh at the moment but I wanna make it a blue room when we move house next year. Can't wait to see your nursery finished.
