I was determined to finish Raffi's nursery before Summer begins. The thought of working on it when my belly has expanded to an uncomfortable size and the days are extra hot pushed me to get a head start. Last week the handyman came over and helped me put up curtain rods, shelving, and framed pictures. Rafael will be sleeping in a crib attached to my side of the bed as long as he wakes up for frequent night feedings, so the nursery will, at first, be a place to breastfeed, change diapers, and dress him.
My 'theme' for his nursery was 'Calm, neutral, comforting.' I used mostly white, with bits of red, brown, green, and grey. I love vintage images and children's books, so I framed some of my favorite illustrations and hung them on the wall. I am also trying to use as little plastic as possible, so most of his things are out of fabric or wood.
Here are some photos of how it looks now; there are still some things to be done, but the basic structure is there.
Hope you like it as much as I do!
