Happy Monday Bloggers!
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I was a lucky lady and got to do a lot of the fun things I listed. The snow on Saturday almost stopped my friend Jen and I from exploring the thrift stores, but we decided to brave the roads anyway. I was SO happy that we did. I landed lots of treasures ... mostly for baby Parker. Actually I think everything I bought was for baby Parker.
The biggest treasure of the day was this navy blue swivel rocker that I landed for $15.00!!!
Yes friends, I bought this rocker/glider for less than $20.00. I was trilled. I've been looking for a rocker for Parker's nursery for awhile now. This one was a perfect price, in excellent condition, and the color goes with his room.
Remember this is the color scheme I am going with:
I love that it doesn't been to be reupholstered. It's a little darker than the pictures makes it look. I think it will look adorable with a little yellow and white chevron pillow. Thankfully I bought an extra half yard of the chevron fabric that I'm going to use for the pelmet boxes.
I'm having a little regret over not buying these...
I know I can't have it all, but they're just so perfect...
(I would use this metal trash can as a hamper)
Who knows, maybe I'll go back later this week to see if they're still there.
So here is the progress we've made on the nursery:
things we have:
crib: check! (we're using the one that E used as a baby)
window treatments: check!
changing table: check!
things we still need:
I think I'm going to price out how much it would cost to get a piece of carpet bound (anyone getting new carpet and have left over scraps??)
I have been scouring the pages of craigslist daily.
I was originally set on getting a cubed type of bookcase like this one:
but then I saw this image and also loved this look:
I want to make my own bumper and fitted sheet, but I'm really scared that I am not that skilled. I don't really know how to sew.
anyone know where I print pictures of vintage airplanes?
toys, locker baskets,hamper, industrial letter p, ect.
I'm sure there are a lot of other things I'm not thinking of, but it's late and so I think I'm going to sign off for now! Once we get the room cleared out, I'll start taking pictures of the room as it comes together.
