Here it is! After brewing in my head for months, it was so fun to actually make this little project happen & to work on it with my hubby! I really can't make any of my projects work as well without him because he is much better at the "big picture" than I am, and I am the details behind the big picture, so we make a good team ;)
I couldn't get good lighting on this side of the room for the picture, but it is our changing area (minus the changing pad, for now). Rather than buying a new dresser/changing table for the room, we opted to store all of little e's clothing in the closet & to make a changing area with an antique table that we already had. We replaced the legs on the table to make it more sturdy & then, to make up for the lack of storage space that the table provides, we hung wire baskets on the wall nearby with cloth diapers, ointments & such tucked inside.
Little e's room also needed to double as a guest bedroom for our family's needs. To accomodate a large bed & crib into a less than huge room, we decided to make the bed into a daybed & replaced the head & foot board with foot pegs (more on this later--perhaps a DIY Wed?)
This created ample space in the room to have both a guest bed & a crib! YAY!
We also wanted to create some ambient lighting in the room as an alternative to the big fluorescent bulb that is in the middle of the ceiling & came up with these fun lights to serve as lighting & also decoration over the bed. I'm working up a tutorial on those as well!
Like I said, I love the details--this suitcase & vintage baby weigh is purely for fun, totally impractical. Although, the weigh does work, so I suppose I could track baby's weight every now & again if I'm curious. :)
Vintage fan to give little e some ambient noise when he sleeps :)
Handmade Crib Skirt--to match the curtains by the changing table.
If you can't hide the cords, embrace them ;)
And, finally, a close up of my little superhero's wall & crib.
I love the feeling of a completed project & a successful one at that!
