Now is the fun part of personalizing Drew’s space a little bit. I’ve moved over a bunch of his “accessories” to make this new space feel more like his. We’ve relocated the ship’s wheel from above his crib to above his big boy bed.
The room doesn’t even look like that anymore… 🙁 I loved that room.
because here is where the wheel was relocated to:
The little sign will be hung right under the wheel with uber strong 3M tape (squares? glue? what are those things called?) but I haven’t made my way to the hardware store yet.
Oh, and are you wondering why are we putting all this work into it if we are getting it insulated and re-drywalled before Drew moves in? Well, it’s because the plans have changed. The drywall estimate came in about 2-3 times more expensive than what we estimated it would be (we were estimating between $500 – $800) which means the room will be put off until this summer till AJ is off from teaching and we’ll give Drew some extra cuddly blankets for the remaining cold nights… and we have a space heater so it shouldn’t be too big of a deal. He’s warm blooded like his dad. 🙂
The Pottery Barn Fisherman’s Lamp is now longer on his changing table, like this:
… but now it’s on his nightstand with a little practically indestructable plant and a photo of our family (he loooves looking at pictures of people he recognizes).
Okay, let’s talk about the nightstand. It was a trunk that was sitting in our living room as a little end table but it wasn’t really serving any big purpose so I decided to use what we had instead of buying Drew a new nightstand. I love the texture next to the simplicity of the bed linens.
The dresser is an antique that AJ’s grandmother gave AJ’s father. The photos are from Drew’s six day old shoot with Petite Pixel Photography. Notice it’s missing the top drawer? My loving and cautious husband has it in the attic and was too nervous about his pregnant wife climbing the ladder to get it. 🙂
Every night we read stories in our bed before we put Drew down for the night. Last night we read stories in his new bed and then put him down in his crib… I had tried to buy navy sheets for the new bed and then got home and realized they were an ugly shade of forest green. AJ called it pregnancy color-blindness. I called it Home Goods’ poor florescent lighting. 🙂
