A long time ago, I saw a child's room in a magazine with high beadboard and the child's artwork all around the top of the beadboard and I knew that was what I wanted for my baby's room. Someday, I imagine these frames will be filled with Charlie's artwork.
The bookshelf was there (you might remember it from this rooms former use as a scrapbook space). But we added the doors, after my asking Ken over and over about getting them. I had called the contractor literally the day before Charlie was born. When Charlie came early, I turned to Ken at the hospital and said, "I didn't get my damn doors!"
I counted last night while I was feeding Charlie, and there are nine different things in the room from etsy:
"c" cross stitch pattern from andwabisabi. Alphabet letterpress print from simplesongdesigns. Muddy morning print from belle and boo. Two postcards from tutti studio. Wood puzzles from wood that's fun. Dinosaur from nwtoycrafters. Mobile from lollipop moon (and I have to say she is AWESOME and made the mobile to match the rug). Clock from decoylab. Customized golden retriever print from modern art everyday.
Above the beadboard is a very very pale blue. Charlie has two wooden trains. One my grandfather Charlie gave to my brother. The other was given to our Charlie by our Casey family. And he has lots of books, which he is already reading to me. On Thursdays we read the encyclopedia.
The blue elephant on the bookshelf is an original Carron. Fat baby in the crib is an original Laura and Ken.
