Decorating the nursery

Thought you all might like to see a few photos of Brijin's room. It's still a work in progress, but I think it turned out well. Since we didn't know if she was a boy or a girl until delivery, we went with the gender-neutral, animal theme.

My mom, or I guess I better say GRANDMA, bought some cute animal pictures at Target and hung them when she and GRANDPA were up last week to help with Brijin once we returned home from the hospital. Found the bedding on Ebay (Pottery Barn Kids!) and the other room accessories at Babies R' Us - the window treatments, hamper and diaper stacker. Also scored big time at garage sales with a glider chair/ ottoman and a diaper changing table that my hubby painted red to jazz up - I wasn't even intending on going to garage sales. However I randomly drove by two separate ones on different day with items I'd been wanting practically sitting on the side of the road just waiting for me! ASK AND IT IS GIVEN!

Still planning to fill you all in on the big day of delivering Brijin and all the other topics I referred to in the post last week when I finally returned back online from my hospital stay. But there just aren't enough hours in the day nor in my sleep pattern to do so quite yet.

Here's some more photos of Brijin, just because she's so darn cute! Also happy birthday Dad, or shall I say Grandpa!

That changing table looks awesome! A little spray paint can go a long way :-) I seriously need to take a shot at making over some furniture.

Thanks Maria - yes you should definitely try! It's pretty easy and does make a real difference. Although if I had a chance to do over, I probably would have just bought regular paint instead of spray paint for this piece. Got kind of drippy and runny. (Spray paint worked great on our wicker chairs though). has some great stuff about repainting furniture - just search it. My delicious also has a few posts tagged under decorating about this.
