Our nursery is officially finished! With only 2 weeks (or less) to go before Baby Bo arrives!
I tried to take the pictures below going around the room clockwise, starting in the doorway. Hopefully that gives a little more perspective on how the room is set up.
The nursery has been painted blue and the border has been up since we remodeled the house when we first moved in during the fall of 2003. I always knew I wanted a Cubs baseball nursery -- boy or girl -- it was going to be Cubs baseball! I actually thought I had probably jinxed myself to have a girl by painting the room blue -- but apparently that was not the case!
I want the room to have a Cubs/Wrigley Field feel to it. My MIL painted the bricks and ivy behind the glider and the 353 is actually at Wrigley in one of the corners for the distance of a home run.
The stuffed animal area is suppose to be like the green wire that is around the outside of Wrigley to catch balls. I thought that would be a neat touch and the fans are the stuffed animals in the bleacher seats. My FIL designed this aspect of the room.
Both of the drawings you see are original artwork depicting the Cubs or Wrigley.
The other "oddity" about the room is the screen door. We tried a crib tent but it was just awful. So our solution for keeping our four fur babies out of the room -- a screen door. It may look a bit silly but I have a feeling it is going to be very handy.
Overall I am thrilled with the look of our nursery. It is just what I wanted. Something different and unique with lots of fun elements. I can't wait until Bo is here and I am able to spend time in there with him.
