Now speaking of Ry's room...yeah, well it's not going to be Ry's room for too much longer. As many of you know, we're expecting our third little one come November, so Ry and Bryce are shackin' up together in what is currently the master bedroom (If I've totally confused you, just go here--we're kinda in the middle of a major renovation.) and the babe is getting Ryder's room. And that's all fine and dandy if we have a third boy. But if for some reason it should happen to be a girl that makes her debut, we're pretty much screwed. (Oh and we're not huge planners around here, so we won't find out the sex until that baby makes his/her appearance.) As you know, Ryder's room definitely reads "boy" so it'll be
I wish I knew how to make one of those cool inspiration boards that so many of you are great at making...oh well, I guess that required more than one inspiration, and this fabric is pretty much my only inspiration at the moment. I'm not going all crazy checking out nurseries everywhere...actually my Pinterest nursery board only has three pins on it:/ And they're of boy's nurseries. Anyway, isn't that fabric pretty? I love all things birds so when I saw these lined curtains at one of my regular thrift shops (way before I was even pregnant), it didn't take me long to stick 'em in my cart. I can totally design an entire nursery around these puppies. Whatcha think? Love or hate? They're definitely oldies...not the latest fabric off the rack, which is a big part of why I like them so much. I'm not so much of a big-box-store-kinda girl.
I do want to spray the crib another color and I was leaning towards gray, but the wall color is gray, so now I don't know. Here's what it currently looks like.
If you have any inspiring ideas, I'd love to hear/see them. Remember, it has to go either way--boy or girl. So magenta is out of the question. (even though I think a magenta crib would look pretty sweet in a girl's room) I guess I just don't want to get my hopes up either way (boy/girl) and get a design ingrained in my head and be disappointed when the other sex pops out, know what I mean? But on the other hand, I guess it IS good to have somewhat of a plan. So we're going to have a "casual plan"--ie we're going to do the work (minus the crib) after the baby arrives but have an idea of a direction. Does that make sense to anyone but me? All you planners out there are probably tearing out your hair right about now, aren't you? Ahh...it's all right. We'll be fine:) And I'm pretty confident the baby will have a cute room. Don't worry.
So let me hear your ideas and if you have any nurseries pinned, I (guess) I'd like to see them;) And welcome to any new followers--thanks for stoppin' by!
