Halfway done

The baby's room is slowly getting there, and a request has been made for some "halfway done" pictures to be posted. So I'll oblige:

$25 Goodwill Glider/Rocker before and after (new foam, fabric, batting and a funny overstuffed lumbar pillow made of fabric scraps to break up the monotony of the brown)

Did I mention the other half of the baby's room is the computer room? Well, here's the bad desk we had there before, and the IKEA desk we found to put in its place. Some wall shelves have been purchased and are waiting to be installed above the computers, and I can't wait for that.


You can't really tell in that previous computer desk picture, but the walls were a mustard yellow color. Now they are this cream color with these awesome stripes (all the credit goes to Jeff for this idea and the execution thereof)


And last we have a valance hanging on the crib (full of junk), just waiting patiently for the hardware to hang it on the window, and the crib quilt waiting to be put together with its fellow bedding pieces, bumpers and crib skirt.

I am still looking for a rug, adding velcro tabs to the crib bumpers, pondering what fun items we might hang on the empty walls, and waiting to organize all the other items into the drawers and shelves. Once that's done, you all will be the first to see.

It's looking great and i can't wait to see it in person. I'm especially impressed at your skill and courage to do upholstery. Good job on the perfectly even stripes, Jeff.

I love all of it! So the chair- is the seat connected to the back? or is it 2 seperate pieces, will teh bottom move around when you sit on it, or did you velcro it down? It is so cute, you have been a BUSY bee, I love the valance, even though it's in the backround I can still get the idea and it is so cute! love the quilt, and the blue and brown stripe, is that a sticker or paint? I know you're pregnant, but for some reason I forgot about teh part that you will be having a baby soon. When i saw the post- I thought- baby room- what? and then I remembered, I know your pregnant,but it's like it hasn't clicked that you are going to have anotherh addition to your 2 boys soon. I'm so excited! I know I say this all the time, but i love your boys so much, they are so cute adn so sweet.
