Baby's Room

Since bringing Karis home happened so quickly, her room wasn't exactly ready for her when she got here. It has been something thats bothered me for quite a while. We are slowly but surely conquering it. It started with painting the walls. They were a pale yellow, but really needed to be painted so we did tan (boring I know) with one baby blue wall. I honestly regret not doing more of the room blue because I love it so much, but I was scared to paint the whole thing blue since it is a girl's room. Who knows, Van might come home one day to find that I painted it all blue. We do have a lot of paint left...hmmm...

Katie and I made letters for her name on the wall. This is so nursery cliche right now, but I just couldn't help it. I really wanted it there.

Aunt Kasey made her a cute door hanger.

And my dear friend Kat made the mobile.

I'll post pictures of the finished product when I take them. How about that.

Cliche or not, those letters you and Katie made are adorable!!! Are the backgrounds of each letter painted or printed paper or something else? Such a great idea!

I LOVE the letters you and Katie made! I wanted to do that for Charlotte's room (except I would have bought the letters because hello, I have zero creativity), but her name is so long that I felt like it would be overwhelming.
