Baby Room feedback
I have been enjoying the creativity that comes with planning our baby girl's room. There is something about gathering all the elements that is really fun for me. I FINALLY found a rug that I love when I was in Wichita last weekend. It fit the 'look' I was going for perfectly. The only things we don't have on hand so far are the glider and other accent pieces which we will probably get closer to when baby comes. I love that most of our furniture is from family...gives the room a sentimental touch. The chifforobe (fancy word that means a dresser than has drawers and a place to hang things) was my mothers, and mine, now will be our daughters. It has been in many garages and been revived many times. It was yellow before my dad and I refinished it to the current color many years ago. The crib was at B's mothers house for when she watched her grandchildren. We inherited it a few years back. So many memories, spring from these material things. I love thinking that when I am rocking our little girl that I will look around the room and history might speak. Maybe I will even pray some of the same prayers that mothers and grandmothers prayed. There is one element that I need help with, paint color: What color should we paint the room? Do you like the blue, pink or yellow version? Or do you have another idea I can try? I worked up these inspiration boards to lay everything out visually. I have been having fun with photoshop elements and learning a lot in the process.
