Nursery tours are so much fun, aren't they? I posted before about my inspiration, but here's how it all came together.
The print in the middle was where we started. And the guest bed is where we ended! I knew I wanted to work with primary colors in the room, coming from the rocket print, but it's a little hard to find colors to match! All the yellows were golds, the blues were navies, and no oranges or greens could be found. So red it was.
I contacted an etsy seller about the smaller rocket prints. I sent her the colors from the print, asking if one rocket could be blue/green/yellow and the other rocket pink/red/orange. I love how they turned out. When I was bringing in some baby stuff from the garage I found these little Rainbow Brite sprites I had made when I was a kid. I thought they'd be perfect with the room and colors.
I really didn't want to get a bedding set, since I knew I'd only be using the crib skirt, since I wanted white sheets. But I could not find a crib skirt that matched the colors I wanted for the room. Except in a set - MiGi Rainbow. (Which is funny, because Thatbaby's bedding was also MiGi). When the whole set went on sale for less than $50, I caved in and got it. And the matching window valence.
I wanted a rocket mobile for the crib, but didn't want to pay etsy prices. So for about $10 I made my own.
We kept Thatkid's crib and dresser, but I wanted to spruce up the dresser a bit, so I got wooden knobs and painted little rockets on them.
For long nights, I made myself a nursing corner. The little nightstand holds breastpads and pump supplies and also works to hold my water/snack while I nurse. Then of course the glider I end up sleeping in a lot of the night!
