Donovan's Nursery

Donovan's nursery is finally coming together!  And he's just seven weeks old =) He won't be sleeping in it until he's too big for the cradle though so I'm not terribly worried that it's taken this long since it had to be built from scratch!  Yesterday I found the perfect Curious George wall decals that I thought had been discontinued from Pottery Barn Kids, and that gave me just the impetus I needed to finally start hanging stuff up in there.
In case you're wondering, yes the bed is backwards.  Serenity keeps climbing in it whenever I'm not in the room.  This way at least she's not trying to climb up the drop down side. 

I opened my brand new Silhouette and used it to cut out the letters for his name, and then I arranged the kites, Curious George Decals, and name letters on the ceiling.  I love how the ceiling angles, it makes it seem like the kites are flying right overhead! Look here for the tutorial on how to make the kites =)

I also dressed a little set of shelves in the hallway just inside the door of his room with all the adorable Curious George stuff I got from my wonderful shower, along with the personalized blocks and the awesome scrapbook with photos of our wonderful friends in it!

Now I just want to make a little reading nook in the corner, and buy a chair for nursing when we move back upstairs.  Much better!
