Anyway, back to today's post...when I first posted Ava Kate's nursery, there wasn't much on the walls. There was a reason for that, I wanted to use photos of her to decorate. I was planning on a large newborn photo of her to go above the crib and I wasn't sure what else I would do. Well, five months later it is coming together :)
We put this 16x20 print up above her bed a few months ago.
(don't worry, it's safely secured with a french cleat that will hold 100lbs ;) I wanted to make sure it was not gonna come down since it was right above the crib...safety first when decorating your nursery!!)
I love this image of baby girl captured by the popular and talented newborn photographer, Laura Brett.
It's one of my favorite things in her room. I found the frame at Hobby Lobby for half off at only $25! I painted and distressed it a bit to coordinate with the crib and dresser (it was originally gold.)
This past weekend I found these white frames at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off as well! I decided I liked them without pictures in them and I love the look of them on the wall :)Right now the frames are white and I haven't decided if I will paint them off-white to match the dresser and mirror on that wall. I think there is enough 'regualr' white in the room to make it fine to leave them the way they are but I may break down and paint them to match anyway :p
They show up on the wall much better than in the photos, I promise ;)
Another picture we hung above her shelves (made by my hubby) is actually her birth announcement.
I love her birth announcement and am so glad that we have a copy of it hanging on the wall in her nursery. For anyone wondering, I ordered it from Shutterfly (where I ordered the paper announcements.)
I took this image of my precious girl at just six days old. I didn't take enough photos of her at this tiny age and it makes me sad. They are newborns for such a short time!
Her very full bow holder in the corner there! I think we will be needing a bigger one soon! :p
I finished this post just in time...I hear my little one waking up from her nap now! Here's to hoping that I can be better at posting from now on.... ;)
