We got the crib, bedding and other accessories for Jackson's room this week and today we spent the better part of the day putting the bed together (actually Seth did this part with help (more like hindrance) from Matthew. I decorated. We still have to find a dresser, mirror and buy some more accessories for the room but I think we are off to a good start.
I love the bumblebee theme!!! Adding the snails, frogs and dragonflies make it a little more boyish but I love the song "Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee" and so does Matthew so we chose the bumblebee theme for Jackson.
I got creative!! I found these little bugs hanging on springs and decided to hang them from the ceiling. I am a master at crocheting but never finishing projects so I found where I had crocheted these little squares and decided to use them to hang at the ceiling where the little bugs were hanging. I have to make them more permanent but this is how they look right now. I got them at JoAnne fabrics this summer as part of a clearance sale. (they were like 1.00 each)
Here is the crib with the bedding on it. Behind the crib we have matching decals that just stick to the wall. It works great so we don't have to put a lot of holes in the wall because when he gets older I know he will want to change the decor.
This rocking chair was given to me by a very dear friend. We have a lighter color wood in Matthew's room so we put Seth's old rocking chair in Matthew's room. This darker color matches Jackson's darker wood much better. Behind the rocking chair are little honeycombs that we found at JoAnne fabrics for like 2.00 each at the same clearance sale.
I can't wait to bring home my baby bumblebee so he can see his room!!!
