Anyway, this morning I was checking my news feed on Facebook and saw that I was featured over at Young House Love today. Total surprise and shock! I had actually forgotten about sending the email. So head on over and check it out if you haven't already and a big thanks to John and Sherry for featuring my ever-evolving living room!!
Speaking of ever-evolving, we rearranged Isaac's nursery while the hubby was off a few weeks ago. We were in the process of painting our master bedroom (I promise I'll have pics soon, I'm still working on reupholstering the headboard) and didn't want our little chunker breathing in paint fumes so he slept in his own room. Gasp! I know!! The best part? He slept great, it actually worked.
Once we figured that out and decided to keep him there we had some work to do.
Isaac just started crawling and can sit up great on his own but because he's so big he ends up rolling over in his sleep and whacking his head into the crib sides all the time. The crib we have has closed ends on the sides. They're solid and not rails, which is a pretty popular style these days. The problem with that is that you can't use traditional crib bumpers because you don't have any rails to tie them too. On top of that, bumpers aren't very safe and almost no one makes
I bought these bumpers from WalMart for $20. They come in four pieces, two long ones for the front and back and two short for the ends. I just recovered the long pieces and added new ties. The added bonus is that his binky's don't fall through the rails now. If you have a crib like ours with the solid sides and need a bumper alternative you should try this one, super easy and very cheap!
Ok, onto the pictures.
I would eventually like to add one or two of these acrylic shelves under the window and a mobile, but it'll do for now. :)
