Peekin' In On Baby - Part II

by - Friday, April 03, 2009

Baby HandyLuster's room is almost done.  I'm dying to reveal it to you all, but am still waiting on a few final pieces... the seamstress is still working on the glider and the bench cushions and HandyMan and I still have to figure out solutions for the rad cover and the shelf above the window.  I'm not sure we'll even get those things done before Baby arrives but I hate to show you the room when we're so close to done.

So you'll have to settle for a few more sneak peeks in the meantime.  First up is the crib.  This actually isn't going into the room because we plan on having Baby's crib in our room.  That's the plan anyways :)  Hopefully we'll all still manage to get a good night's sleep.  The Pottery Barn Kids gingham crib sheet and bedding was a $50 steal on Craigslist, I found the monkey at a local bookstore, and the custom blanket was made by etsy seller whynottsewn.   

And here is the recovered ottoman!  The seamstress is doing the rest of the cushions but HandyMan and I decided to tackle the ottoman ourselves (and we got to try out our air compressor staple gun too - bonus!).  Funny, but we didn't end up using any of the fabrics I first liked.  But this one is just perfect :)  It really stands out in the room.  I can't wait to show you the rest of the room...hopefully soon!

    The room looks beautiful! The fabric on the ottoman looks amazing.
    I too would love to know the name of your seamstress as we want to have a few things made for our master bedroom. Looking forward to seeing the remainder of the room.

    I love your baby's room but just remember - no pillow in the crib with your baby.

    We bought the ottoman fabric at The style was Devin in the Film Noir colourway (though I don't see that particular colour online).

    My seamstress's name is Gail and her phone # is 647-233-6683. She's located near Queen & Carlaw. You can tell her Jennifer referred you :)
