Our previously white crib took on a whole new, sunny persona with a fresh coat of yellow paint. I really love the way it pops against the robin's egg, seafoamy, light teal walls (there have been lots of discussions about the exact nature of this color, and no two pictures of it turn out the same. Maybe we should call it "elusive blue")
(please don't comment about how my child is going to die because I painted her crib, k?)
I have 3 pieces of art in the room:
1. A collage of her newborn portraits
2. "Be filled with joy" print (she and I share the middle name Joy, so besides the colors being perfect, I thought it was fitting)
3. The wooden Happy sign. I saw this painted sign on Autum's blog, Creative Little Daisy. She said she didn't like the way it turned out, so I asked if I could buy it from her. In the end, she just mailed it to me FOR FREE. How nice is that? I am in love with it, and the yellow and little aqua heart at the bottom match my colors perfectly! (Check out her blog for all kinds of amazing DIY home projects, especially the pallet wall she just built in her newly renovated attic!)
I got the fun rug here. Did I ever mention I love rainbows? (ps: the rug is still on clearance, if you love rainbows too :)
I made a simple coordinating crib skirt, and then just purchased a white minky bumper and white jersey sheets. I thought all that color needed a little bit of white to balance it out. The same goes for the room.
Here's the fun colorful side of the room:
And opposite, some calming white:
And that's it! Thanks for taking the tour!
(I left out the closet and bathroom because they are our storage areas for 2.5 years worth of diapers, wipes, formula, baby paraphernalia, clothes, toys, and my bin of sewing scraps. You're welcome.)
