Here Liv is in her crib. This is totally posed. She doesn't sleep in here; she sleeps in a pack n play in our room. But I put her in there just to see how she looked.
I tried very hard to use things I had on hand and not spend a lot of money in Liv's room. Mike's mom painted the room for us. I forget the color but it is a soft slightly peachy pink. The crib was Ben's (we got him a big boy bed rather than converting the crib to a toddler bed). My friend Lesli (who is very crafty and talented) made the crib skirt, floral pillow covers and blanket, so I just had to pay for the fabric. The bird pillow cover is from Etsy. The sheets were a clearance find at Target.
Mom donated the dresser. She's had it forever and hauled it up and painted it for us. I love that it is "vintage" and feminine. Mom painted the inside of the dresser raspberry. The color looks a little red in pictures (and in real life too, but more so in pics). I chose the paint so it is my fault, but with all the clothes filling the drawers, you barely see the paint anyway. The changing pad and basket I already had. I just bought the changing pad cover. The chair we also owned too.
Here is Liv fresh from the bath, mohawk and all.
As I was getting Liv dressed after her bath, Ben came in, started looking around, and discovered Liv had some books he'd never read (gifts from a friend), so we all cuddled up in the chair to read. You can see in this pic that we definitely need curtains. The bird art print is another Etsy find. That rug was a steal on rugsusa.com but the gray looks a bit weird with the crib skirt. I love the rug but am still debating moving it to another room and getting something else for this space. The gray/white just clashes with the chair/fabric. But the room is so mix n match, maybe it doesn't matter. I am going to find curtains first and see if they help tie it all together. If anyone knows of any cute curtains that would work in here, let me know. I think a stripe would be nice to offset all the floral I've got going on.
I like how it looks like Liv is listening carefully to Ben as he "reads" us this book.
I'll be back soon (hopefully) with more/better pictures as I finish up her room.
Also, I hung new pictures in the hall outside Liv's room -- one of her cute chubby face and the other of Ben and Liv. The other two were already there but I've never shown them before.
