Labor of Love!

After spending two weeks in Boston, Caroline's nursery is Finis!
Here's the fabrics that Andrea, Daughter #1,  chose for their daughter, Caroline's, nursery.
I made the bed linens and panels here, then mailed them to her so they'd be there when I arrived.
This is what we started with.

It kind of looked like an episode of Hoarders!
We put a fresh coat of paint on the walls and trim.
Hung panels on the windows.

We dressed that crib up with the cutest dust ruffle and bumper pads.

The daybed received some attention too.
Small bookcases for small books and girlie things.

Because this is an older home, there are no closets in this bedroom.
No problem.
We just repurposed an armoire from the living room that held games...and stuff.

We had a wonderful supervisor.

She didn't miss a thing!

That herd of elephants ended up here.

The reveal...

Caroline's nursery.
A labor of love.
Life is good.
