Really, the room has been ready for a while, just chaotic and disorganized. It's a small space and Baby has so much stuff to pack in there! We started in March by painting and ordering the furniture. Slowy but surely, I've been finishing projects for the room, like the wreath, the crocheted throw, a mini quilt, and a toy net.
Here's the whole room. I stood outside the door of the room to take this picture! The window is on the south wall; the crib is on the east wall.
Here's the west wall, with the changing table/dresser unit. I have a fun wall hanging planned for the big empty space above it.
This is the mini quilt I made that hangs above the crib.
Baby has already amassed quite the collection of stuffed animals. (Okay, okay, you beat it out of me. They were mostly all mine and have been in storage for years because I couldn't bear to get rid of them.)
Since it's not a good idea to line her crib with animals, I wanted to buy a toy net to hang in the corner of her room. As I was looking around online I realized that I could crochet one very easily and for free with yarn from my stash, rather than shelling out $15 to buy one.
After a brief online hunt for an easy pattern, I dug out some cotton yarn and made a simple triangle. It's super cute and matches the colors already in her room, however it's really small and only holds three stuffed animals! I actually like that it's not huge, but if I did it again I'd definitely make it bigger.
Now, what do I do with the rest of the storage bin of stuffed animals? Turns out, I haven't really solved my problem yet. :)
Big Bunny is snuggled in between the crib and the closet doors.
Today, Hubby helped me organize the room and clean out the closet to make room for more stuff. We're ready to go!
