What do you get when you combine a cot quilt, nursery curtains, an owl mobile, a cot valance, two sets of bunting flags, a lamp covered with fabric, a seat topper and a cushion cover for a rocking chair? Well, you get a finished nursery!
One thing that I did before I started up my blog was paint a tree on the wall and fill it with leaves and owls, so while you may have seen everything else in the nursery, a lot of you may not have seen this:
It took quite a while as I painted the tree onto the wall with the aid of a data projector, and then cut the owls and leaves out using cardstock. I think the overall result was quite good! Here is a close up picture of the owls in the tree:
And just for good measure, here is another picture of my favourite thing in the nursery:
It is strange, because I thought that I would feel slightly relieved that I could class the nursery as finished. Instead, I have spent a lot of time in there wondering what else I could do!! I am hoping that the feeling will pass so that I can get stuck into some non-baby related projects.... and I have a lot of those!
