Sneak Peak—Colson's Room

In the past week we have made a lot of progress on Cole's room. Almost all of our office stuff is moved out minus the computers and a book shelf.  This left enough room for me to be able to get the paint up on the walls. 

I absolutely LOVE the paint color! I think it is the perfect brown! It's not too dark but it's not a tan color. I love it! :o)

We also got Cole's dresser put together, as well as his crib. Right now they're just in the corner of the room...we still have to arrange everything, but at least they are together. It really makes me feel better knowing that his room is almost finished.

Here is the crib and dresser next to the paint color. The crib is the same crib that Hannah's the Graco Lauren Crib in Espresso. The dresser (which you can't see all to well) is from Ikea. You can't beat $59 for a 5 drawer dresser!

Here is a photo of the curtains next to the paint color. We also got these from Ikea—$20 for two panels.

The plan was for me to paint three large circles above the crib—one in green, blue and orange. But then I got to thinking that it might be easier to do them in wall vinyl. That way I would be able to move them around/remove them. I did a little research but the price was just not working for me. So then I came up with using fabric. Nick came up with the idea of mounting it on foam board. GENIUS! So I went to the store today to look at fabric. I couldn't find the exact colors that I wanted—this is where paint would have been easier as I would have been able to pick the exact colors that I wanted. But I managed to find some that I think work well with the bedding...

The perfectionist in me is a little bothered by the colors not matching the bedding exactly, the blue is the color that bothers me the most. It's a bit too bright compared to the other two colors...but I guess I'll get over it. I think it looks nice none-the-less. And who knows, maybe I'll come across a blue at a different store that I like better and then I can just pop this blue off and re-do it. (The fabric is only hot glued to the back of the foam board.) :o)

Also, as you can see, I decided to keep them as rectangles. By doing this, I was able to keep them as large as possible, where if I were to cut them into circles, I would have been losing a lot of the color. When I actually mount them above the crib I will put them higher and a little farther apart. They are just propped up on the crib right now.

So there you have it! A little sneak peak into Colson's room.

Once it is completely set up, I will update with more photos. The same goes for my office. :o)
