We finally finished Foster’s room… now he can come. :)
Foster’s room is decorated with blue and brown with a splash of puppies. :) I found some Pottery Barn Kids bedding at the Just Between Friends consignment sale that I really liked so I used that as a starting point but I ended up adding a lot of brown!
My sweet Aunt Judy bought us a very cool “Shaggy Raggy Chocolate Rug” from Peek-A-Boo baby. Funny story… this was the THIRD rug that we tried out in the room. She bought each rug that I picked out, then returned it after I changed my mind. What a sweet Aunt. :) I think we all love the final rug- ‘third time’s a charm’, right? It’s so soft and fun to stand on.
We re-used all of the furniture that we used for Emma but changed the drawer pulls to brown instead of pink.
We bought the wall decal above his bed off of Etsy.com I love seeing his name each time I walk into his room. :)
Changing table with canvas puppies:
Dresser- this is the dresser that my dad refinished right before Emma was born. It was my dad’s dresser when he was a baby.
Just had to include this picture… what does NOT belong in this picture??? Two laptop computers. Robin occasionally uses this room as a secondary office when he needs a change of scenery. Maybe Foster will learn to ‘play computer’ early on?
This is one of my favorite things in the room… My sweet friend Jamey made this diaper cake for us! I am amazed by her talent. It matches his room perfectly. I plan to leave it on the dresser until I need the diapers- that will be a sad day.
This is another one of my favorites…. My sweet friend Terra made this beautiful framed poem for Foster. It is the sweetest poem about having a baby boy. It brings tears to my eyes each time that I read it. Do you see Foster’s 1st and middle name on the picture??? Have I mentioned on the blog yet that we decided on a middle name??? Foster James Curry
Funny story about the curtains… nothing is every quite easy for us! I ordered these curtains from Pottery Barn Kids. Each panel came from a different place because they were discontinued… after hanging them we realized they were slightly different lengths. Mom and I tried to blame it on Robin hanging the rod incorrectly. It took us about an hour to figure out that they truly were different lengths. Mom plans to hem the curtains so they will hang perfectly. Poor poor Robin. He never wants to hang curtains again.
I have to admit that I didn’t get AS into decorating Foster’s room as I did with Emma’s room. I guess the main factor is that I had so much more time and energy to decorate Emma’s room.
However, I am very pleased with the way Foster’s room turned out and am grateful to our family for helping us paint, decorate, and furnish the nursery.
You can come anytime now Foster… we’re ready! (at least we think we are.)
