I'm expecting at the end of July so I've been diligently working away on the nursery for a few months now, with some help from the SO. I wish I had a before picture of the room but I can't find one. If you can imagine in it, it was bologna pink. The baby is a boy though, so pink just wouldn't do. I ended up going with a cheery yellow colour.

So.. the parrot on the wall is a construction paper cutout that I made. I also sewed all the crib sheets and the curtains and I am working on a quilt which incorporates all the fabrics I've used in the room. The "stained glass" frames in the window were actually made by my in-laws. The little table my SO made when he was in scouts as a child and my FIL found it in the basement of their house and stained it to match our furniture. The lamp shade I recovered with the same fabric as the curtains. Oh and the "jelly fish" hanging from the windows I made with fabric scraps and ribbons, and I stuffed them with lavender!!! That was a fun project.

The room isn't completely finished, but there's just some things that I won't be getting around to for a little bit so I wanted to post pictures now while I can.
Also, obviously the stroller and the bassinet won't be staying in the nursery, we're just storing them for the time being.

Congratulations!  How fun to use a table your SO made in scouts.  You've got a lovely room for your little guy to come home to.
