Since we gave an update on a nursery, I thought I should show you all the work Jason has been putting into Cady’s room.
Every piece of furniture in this room, with exception of the bed, was made by Jason. I think it is awesome that Cady can have such special pieces in her room. We know each was made with love.
It is crazy to me that this room looks more like a little girl lives there than a baby.
This is what you see when looking in the door
Her bed. I would like to redo the poof balls above it but I also have some ideas for something similar to replace them too. The nightstand next to her bed was made by Jason. It was his first furniture building project.
Her newest addition: Dollhouse bookcase. This turned out like a dream. It is so perfect. Her books have been spread between her toy room and shelves in the nursery. But now they are all in one place and all accessible to her. She has just been sitting there for a while going through all of her books
Her bookcase and dresser
Her dresser. I’ve updated some of her pictures and she loves feeding daddy’s change to her piggy when he comes home from work every day
And her closet and hampers
I just love her room. It’s the perfect room for a little girl. It is sweet and soft and one of my favorite rooms in our whole house
We also added a little place to display her artwork in her playroom. I’ve seen this done on a couple of blogs. I saw it in person at my friend Tiffany’s house. She and her husband did something similar for their daughter Kate and I just fell in love with the idea.
We found a tutorial that used some curtain hardware from Ikea. And as much I as I liked it, I just wasn’t going to drag myself all the way to Ikea for some wire and clips. So we went to Lowe’s with the idea of what we wanted to do in our head and just looked for something that would work.
We ended up with some eyes, wire, and made a quick stop by Office Max for some binder clips. For right around $5 Cady has an awesome art gallery.
I think it fits the feel of the room perfectly.
She has some stuff up from Summer MDO and our crafts at the library storytime
Now I’m afraid we are going to have to end up doing this to every wall in our house. I know we will run out of room on this quickly, and I just can’t bring myself to throw any of her masterpieces away.
