I think I have FINALLY decided on bedding for the shared nursery. It is exactly what I have been looking for and while it is a little expensive (for my taste anyway...you have two kids and tell me it does not put a dent in your checkbook) I think it's what I am going with.
My idea is that Baby Girl Ferguson (name still to be determined) will of course use the bumper. Owen will use the quilt on his big boy bed. Yes, I know it will not "fit" so he will get a plain khaki bedspread and this will be his "throw" at the foot of the bed. See...it all ties in.
Now, I sort of think its a bit masculine. Mom and Jessica believe (and I trust their judgment) that we can girl up her portion of the room.
I am really going to miss Owen's room though. It has been my favorite room of the house ever since we were able to decorate around the orange and have it turn out adorable. I think this will be equally as adorable and I cannot wait to start decorating. However, I DREAD moving everything around in that house and cannot seem to hammer down a date for Jeff to start working on that.
That ought to be an adventure...for sure.
I wish I could take the roof off, rent a crane and move things around that like.
I just have to keep telling myself that if we got it into the room, we can get it out. Hopefully without destroying the furniture or the walls.
Updates to come soon.
