Elizabeth's Nursery

It's not as if I have let the past year go by with out completing any projects. I have let the year go by taking little to no photos of the items that I have completed. I was simply to tired to take them or I just forgot. I finally got around to completing most of Elizabeth's nursery. The one thing that I hate I haven't gotten to yet is her Quilt. I have purchased the fabrics for it but I am having a problem with execution. Time gets interesting to manage with a 5 month old around. She is on my lap as I type trying her best to get to the keys. I was really fortunate to receive her crib from a dear friend that no longer needed it because her little one was ready for a big boy bed. Brinda was nice enough to donate the bookshelf so we didn't have to purchase one. I had been holding on the $15 chair from the local H4H Re-Store. I decided to recover it in a light grey Duck cloth. The side table I pick up at the local thrift shop for $7. I painted it and added the trim around the top.
Her dresser that I picked up from the Garage brothers from use to hold my fabric but they have been given the boot! I did have to change the drawer pulls because the originals were a little to sharp for little hands. The rug and crib mattress are pretty much the only new items in the room. I even managed to get out of making her mobile. Nikki's husband Steve made the ceiling paper poufs for m baby shower they hosted and I thought they would make a great addition to her room. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. So that most likely means she will turn 3 and want all my handmade work changed to pink!!!
