***NOW WITH A PICTURE!! I'm so tired and forgot to add it before!***
Well, this is the big reveal. Or maybe it's the little reveal. Don't expect much.
Baby Ellie's room doesn't have much in the way of decorations. She has a framed name and a letter "E" just like one of The Muffin's M's.
I'll try to get a better picture sometime later, but I'm having a busy day and life doesn't revolve around stuff like this.
Lots of people are wondering why I'm going to the trouble of preparing a nursery when our house is on the market and we're (eventually) planning to move. Remember me?? I'm a former real estate broker and I know that decorated rooms help a house to show better than rooms that are bare of even worse, filled with junk. We have no idea how long it will take our house to sell, but this baby is coming in June and she'll need a place to sleep. Plus, I need to nest.
The color is neutral, it's Valspar's "Light Raffia" and I Love It. The bedding is "Elise" by Bananafish. I found it under "boy", "girl" and "gender neutral" and decided on it after my mom and sister approved it for either sex...then they surprised me by buying it for us. I did NOT want a baby-ish nursery and I'm all about anything in the brown family or anything damask. After an entire Saturday of shopping on-line for bedding, I realized everything that I picked was some shade of brown or tan and most had a damask print or involved this light teal color. Big Daddy and I decided this was our favorite. The curtains were already in the room, a hand-me-down from my sister. The chest of drawers are also "used". They belonged to my Grandma, then my sister (for Callie's room) and then I inherited them and used them in The Muffin's room for a while and now, they're in Baby Ellie's room. I'd love to have all new stuff, but there's something nice about knowing that your furniture has a story, much like the headboard that my Daddy made for our bed.
Now, the room is somewhat complete and hopefully, the house will sell and my nesting in the nursery will have been in vain. That's what I'm praying for anyway.
