I've been meaning to show you Adelaide's room, but I was waiting until it was finished. Then it finally occurred to me that it will literally never be finished, and that's a good thing. She's a baby. She's going to grow and change and find her own interests, and her room and what's in it will reflect that. What's on the wall now might not be on the wall in a year, and additional stuff will most certainly be added as part of an ongoing process. I'll make stuff. Adam will make stuff. And eventually Adelaide might make stuff. Out of the blue, we'll happen upon something that is just perfect for the space. It will evolve, just as it's been evolving for the past eight months. There is no "finished" here.
But Adelaide's room is "finished" enough these days for me to give you the tour, so here we go!
A few of my favorite on-the-wall things: The sailing swan was a lovely gift from Annette over at Waxy Pin (blog and her adorable shop). The paisley seas just kill me! The books print is from the Black Apple Etsy shop. And the alphabet letterpress print is from the One Canoe Two Etsy shop.
And, of course, there's my very favorite thing of all in the nursery, looking like such a big kid these days!
Other notes: The paint is Benjamin Moore Natura in Denim Wash. The braided rug, the hamper, and the big toy bin are from the Land of Nod. The crib and changing table are from Babies R Us. The rocking chair is an old one from Adam's family. And the barn bookshelf was built by Adam and his dad based on my design/request and is painted with Benjamin Moore Natura in Smoldering Red.
