interior decorator *updated*

Here are a couple "shots" of Baby's Room - I still have a few things to do (you'll notice the walls are *ahem* rather bare...). But it's functional and ready to rock otherwise. The blue walls (and blue chair and blue futon and blue curtains) in no way indicate that we are "hoping" for a boy (I personally think it's a little creepy to "hope" for a specific gender...) I just really love blue. I love the bright colors in the room, and I love that most of what's in that room is either homemade, a gift, purchased with a gift card, or was something we already owned. (Honestly, I spent the same amount of money on the Boppy slipcoveras I did on the flannel sheets for the futon...)
*Update - the dresser I painted is along the wall to the right... the pictures I took of that wall are pretty dull, though, which is why I didn't include them here. It's basically blank walls, the other end of the futon, and the dresser. But it's in there, adding color & life, and serving as our changing table. Hooray for things pulling double duty!

The baby's room is so cute! Isn't it a great feeling to have everything all nice and ready for the baby to come home! I remember folding and re-folding Ethan's baby clothes about 10 times before I actually had him.

Hope your last few weeks go smoothly - we're praying for all 3 of you!

That's a good lookin' room.

You'll enjoy having the futon in there. Wife and I put a twin bed in Daughter's room before she was born, and we spent many nights huddled up in that bed hoping she would sleep.

Looks like you're about ready!

So adorable! Nice job. :) Where's the cute dresser you refinished? I can't believe how soon Baby B will be arriving! Hope all is well with you, Mark and the babe. :)
