This week has been all about helping my good friend Laura get ready for her baby, due to arrive next Tuesday. Laura has an almost two-year-old named Mattea, and she (possibly) plans to name her second little girl “Molly.”
Last night I made two pieces of wall art for the room that the girls will share. I was inspired by Abby at A Feathered Nest to make the monogrammed art below. My pieces are made with scrapbook paper and not nearly as chic as Abby’s, but I think they’ll be cute in the room nonetheless. I referred to Abby’s tutorial over at Favecrafts for directions.
Laura’s Aunt Judy and I also decorated Laura’s room for her. She wanted a serene place to spend time with the new baby. Her room before consisted of a gorgeous oak bed covered by a tired quilt she’d had for a few years, mismatched furniture, two lamps, and a few pictures here and there on the walls.
Laura recently ordered a new dresser to match the bed, and her husband brought home two night stands from Ikea. In the meantime, Judy and I went shopping and found a new set of bedding at K-Mart, curtains, and clearance aisle accessories from Kohl’s and Target. Judy also brought a chair and a small accent table from home. Altogether, Judy and I spent just under $300. Here are the results:
