I am finally confident enough to start planning our nursery.
As you know, we are adding an extension on an old 2-bedroom, one bathroom home on the river 5k from the city of Perth. The extension makes way for a new kitchen, dining and lounge room - so we have three extra rooms in the existing house. Yay! A choice of five rooms to choose for a nursery.
We are going with the theme of forest friends. Nature and our garden and our animals are a major part of our lives and our joy, and we would prefer to raise a peaceful nature-loving hippie, than an over educated, over- stressed perfectionistic achiever like mum and dad.
It has been decided! Bubble goes into the back bedroom, which is Willo's old room, and Bob's current office, and storage room for all the crap from my office, my old business, laundry et al.
I decorated this room for Willo in 2006 when we moved in. It is painted a light blue/green - very pale, but still with colour. The colour will tie in with blue - for a boy, or pink - for a girl.
I spent yesterday searching for vinyl wall decals. Normally I would paint murals myself, but I simply do not have the time nor the space to do this. I am loving the vinyl stick-on, removable range of decorating loveliness one can buy, then pull off when bubble is too old for said design and replace with whatever.
Here is a sneak peak.
The tree, not the bed .... then we can add some forest friends
Same decal, then
we can add pinky girly nature friends ...
20 weeks is where it gets FUN : )))
