Olivia's Room- almost done!

Postby dolly » Mon May 07, 2007 10:38 am

My big boy Flipper had to see what I was doing upstairs..I think he approves :)

Guess who thinks she's the baby??? My lil cat Roxy!!!

Her first teddy bear: a gift from my neighbor's mom last night :) It's from the build-a-bear workshop in NYC.

We still have to finish molding, paint the closet doors, hang some more stuff on the walls, hang the curtains, and finish the staircase which runs into her room, but this is a long time coming....this is how it started!

This is the ceiling in the changing table area: Now there is a pretty chandlier.

This is the opening to my huge walk in closet! I love it!!

I'll show you more when we get the stairway finished!

love the room, I like the colors you chose as well. Where did you build the room is it in your basement ? it looks like you two are doing some work to the whole floor.

nice work though :)

thanks :) It's hard to tell the paint colors from the pix but the walls are actually a hydrangea purple and the ceilings are blue. We plan to add clouds eventually. I can't exactly get on a ladder to do it now...

It is upstairs. We have a dormered cape house. The stairs come up in the middle, so we walled off one side to make our big closet. Our bedroom door is the single door so her nursery is right next to ours.
When she gets bigger, we can move her down to the main floor into one of the bedrooms. Right now Grandma has one of the bedrooms (with an attached apartment) and the other is our guest/computer room.

Thanks Butterpea :) I had to wait so long for the dresser to come in. I ordered it from Buy Buy Baby. It took about 14 weeks! The top piece was separate but all together it cost about $500 with delivery.

I got the changing table from Sears, and the crib from a baby safety seminar...it is a Babee Tenda. It comes with an 11 year warranty. It was $650 but totally baby safe and made very well.

I love it!! The walls look blue in the pics (even though they're purple) and I'm so glad to see that you can make blue look nice and girly. I was starting to have a panic now that i've painted our nursery walls blue. I keep thinking 'what if it turns out to be a girl?', but you've put my mind at ease.
thanks

it depends on the lighting and time of the day sometimes they really look blue :) I'm sure your nursery will come out great. I wanted to stay away from the all pink thing :)
