Squish was gone last weekend. One of the joys of being a dude is annual poker tournaments at The Cabin. So I got Eva and Hulk all to myself. yay. O, did I mention I had a sinus infection? And that I'm really cranky when I'm sick?
So, while Squish left me sick and alone with a four year old and 35 weeks pregnant I finished the nursery. I'm really proud of it. I've sat in there and rocked a few times and it reminds me of how I felt when I finished Eve's nursery.
And surprise! His name is Oscar. I would have preferred waiting until after he was born to "announce" his name but someone already posted pictures on (effing) Facebook.
O, and pretend there's a changing pad on the dresser. Eva decided to take it and the most adorable handmade deer. I found her in the living room playing baby with them.
This was the first room Squish and I painted...ever. We couldn't be happier with the color. It's Palladian Blue. I pretty much ripped off this room from Project Nursery.
I made the bedskirt. And by made I mean, I sewed each side, made a pleat, duct taped it to a board under the mattress and called it good. The stump came from a tree my FIL cut down in his backyard. I sanded that bitch down and it was beautiful. I also sanded a board I found in the back yard and made into a shelf and I sanded a branch I found at my bff's house but didn't end up using. For the last month or so I was a sanding fool.
My name is Kari and I'm addicted to sanding.
Rocker came from my granny and the arrows were old fence pickets I found in someone's trash pile on the side of the road. I drew arrows on them and thought, meh, good enough.
So the room is ready and I can't wait until I get to put my next DIY project* in there.
*my next DIY project is my kid.
