A Few Nursery Projects

We hit the 32 week mark tomorrow, meaning Tiny is only FIVE WEEKS from being full-term! While we are elated and anxious, we also really need to buckle down on getting last minute things done. As the clock keeps ticking, we are trying to finish the nursery before Little Man makes his big debut. Just typing those words gets me all giddy :).
 
 
A few weeks ago, I showed you this little piano we found at a local auction. Zach decided Baby needed a place to sit if he intends to channel his inner Mozart, so he whipped up this little wooden bench. Isn't it precious?

From the moment we found out we are having a boy, I knew I wanted to display one of Z's baby outfits in the nursery. I found a shadowbox on sale at Michael's, but the back was black velvet and nothing in the nursery is black. Zach suggested covering it (why didn't I think of that?) so I found some neutral fabric at Jo-Anns and covered up the black. Much better and all ready to hang!

After completing the dresser/changing table (shown here), we knew we wanted something to hang over it that pulled together different colors from the room. Zach got busy on this adorable bear painting; I absolutely love how it turned out and can't wait to hang it over the dresser. He used the same gray as the walls (Valspar Gravity), the same white as the wainscoting, the same bright blue as the dresser, and a darker blue to contrast. You also get a tiny peek at Tiny's crib :).


There's another project Zach finished a couple weeks ago that I'm dying to show you guys, but it definitely deserves it's own post. I promise I'll show it to you all soon!
 
 
Happy almost-weekend!!
