Transformation into a Baby Room - Phase IV

The carpet has been installed and now it's time for furniture. We got a brand new beautiful crib the other day. With the bones of the room in place, it was time to bring in the bed.

Waiting to be unwrapped.

The little guy helping dad out. I'm loving every minute of it!

Learning how to use an alan wrench.

Dad showing him how to remove the wrench. It was a snug fit!

Voila! All it needs is bedding.

I'm loving the color of the wood.

So far, this is all that's in the room. We are still looking for the perfect chair.

This is one of the few things we have left from our first son's baby room.
It's a dresser that we use as a changing table.
It's been used by every boy in our house!

Now it's decision making time. How will I accessorize? I'm a bit stumped right now. I'll need to do some window shopping. We tried to look for crib sets but found ZERO. The only store I've seen them at is the only kids store in town. It would be nice to have a bit more variety than that. I'll need to do some digging. If anyone has suggestions, my ears are wide open.

Lisa, bumper pads are not encouraged anymore since they have been linked to SIDS. I say skip the pad and go straight to the cute boy sheet patterns at Target! The colors would match well wtih the Dwell Studio sets.

Sarah, from what I have read, the caution is for bumpers that don't have enough ties to keep it taught against the rails. I'm going to check into that more before.

Really, what I'm looking for is matching skirt, sheets, and comforter. If I don't find anything, I'm going to make something!

You should make something...that is what our sewing machines are for!

OR you could come to Ogallala and we could go to Denver and look around.
