my gender neutral room is missing something..... *update*

Postby fuel1316 » Thu Sep 18, 2008 10:01 am

i cant quite put my finger on it but this room is missing something (lol and its the baby, but i mean as far as decor) im thinking maybe its a lack of baby-ish style? i have no clue... :?

feel free to add ideas or suggestions!! TIA

the colored circles are just regular card stock (the thick kind of paper) i got at the craft store and used bowls and cups to trace the size circle i wanted, used clear tape folded over and taped them to the wall. easy to take off and throw out when the baby gets old enough to not want them :D
Image

Image

the blank space on the dresser is where the conture changing pad thing will go instead of getting a whole seperate changing table stand
Image

the mobile i made out of paper, ribbon, and a stitchers wheel (total cost $4)
Image

the mirror :D same thing, just glued on paper circles
Image

picture frames were just plain wood painted and have a peice of paper over the front for a fun design
Image

i think im going to put one of thoes organized wall hanging pocket things under the shelf :?
Image

Image

all in all this room as been very cheap to make so far, if i had to guess i would say maybe $20 :D
Image

still think its missing something and i cant figure it out!! i know if its a girl well add some pink blankets or something to pink it up just a smidge and if its a boy, the same thing add a blue blanket or something to man it up a little but nothing too drastic, im just not sure what im missing :(

if anyone has any ideas or thoughts please let me know!! :D thanks!


--------------------------------update------------------------------------------

mom ordered the crib and we should have it here in a week or 2 at the most. i cant wait, i really hope that makes it feel complete to me :D ill post pics once i get it set up!! thanks everyone for the great ideas :D

The room is adorable :) You were very creative but...where is the bassinett/crib?
I see your still early so perhaps your waiting for those items. That's all that I can see is missing from the space...sorry i'm no help :lol:

boy or girl, your baby will be very lucky to have such a cute and stylish room. It's extra special because momma did it herself and filled it with love :hb:

I still cant get over how creative you are! Are you going to get a changing table? Perhaps maybe you could get a bookcase and add baby stuff to it. like little baby books, a cute lamp, stuffed animals, etc.

im getting a nice sized stuffed animal for the little white corner thing because the turtle there now is to small lol

the changing table will just be the contured pad on top of the dresser. i dont have room for a whole other peice of furniture 8O we have a pretty big room too lol

the nursery is upstairs to i want to keep the matching bed in there for guests and for me in the night because i swear im not going to want to climb stairs all night long :D

if i added a little bookshelf it would have to go under the wall shelf and i think im going to put one of thoes cloth wall hanging pocket organizer things. i still want to get a bunch of books :D :D thank you for the ideas!

michellelynn- you need to get on the nursery!! october is coming up quick 8O 8O lol do you have any idea of what you want to do?

I HAVE to say it Elisa and I know it is no help, but I am in a smart @ss mood today...you're missing the baby!

there isn't anything screaming in my face that is missing...you'll need a diaper pail and stuff, but I'm assuming you feel like there is something larger missing. I don't see it though.

LOL the baby is the most important thing missing :D

i wonder if maybe having the crib and bedding will make it feel complete? it just feels like IDK i think maybe it doesnt feel baby-ish enough to me. :dunno: like it still feels like a guest room? :?

I am doing a butterfly themed room. I bought the crib set, lamp and other accessories back in May. My dh is a procrastinator. I'm sitting in the nursery right now...it's still the office, lol! He's needs to paint our room(yes, it is in desperate need of a new paint color) and move all the computer equip& tables to our room so he can then paint the nursery. If my room doesn't get done, the nursery can't get started. He does work well under pressure, but you can't do this to a pregnant woman, lol!

oh thats awful! i would be a mess if i was so close and didnt have it done already, lol im just an early to rise person i guess LOL ive been waiting since july to put up christmas decor :oops: hahah so its no shock my babys room is almost done

i have to bribe dh to do the yard like trimming and mowing and all that so maybe you can bribe him! :dunno: i painted the babys room 2 years ago, i knew it would be the nursery so i picked a color i could work with for any gender when the time came and it really helped (1 less thing to do while pg)

is thier small things you can do to get it moving? moving computer papers, disks, other small random things that will maybe get dh moving?

Those are gorgeous! I wonder if "Michaels" craft store would have them...hmm.

My helping was by clearing off our nightstands so he could get started this weekend * fingers crossed* He always has to go to the EXTREME..he can't just paint our room he has to install 8 pot lights into the ceiling which is going to take time :twisted: I tried to get things going in the office but he got crazed because it's his work office and he didn't want me to mix anything up, which I can totally understand. We were both using the closet in the office to hang clothes, I cleared the closet..woopeee :)
