Before we had baby names, baby swings, car seats, and coming home from the hospital outfits picked out, Christian and I knew that the foundation of our baby’s room was going to be rooted in the five elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Since they are the building blocks of our world, we wanted to embrace the concept in Chet’s room also.Without taking the definition of each word literally, we did our best to incorporate our love of nature, balance, and family into Chet’s room.
We started with Chet’s bedding. At the same time we found his bedding, I also found the perfect pinwheel mobile. You can read more about it here.
From there we picked out a crib. You can read more about it here.
And then we were ready for paint on the walls. Although I am in love with it now, it was a very stressful weekend for me. We definitely had our ups and downs with painting techniques! You can read more about it here and here.
And without further ado, here is Chet’s (almost) finished nursery:
All that is left is to hang blinds and frame the picture for his room. Since he won’t be sleeping in his room during his first week/months of life, these little details can wait until after he comes home. Until he is ready for his crib, he will be sleeping next to us in our room in a moses baskets (that my sister is letting us borrow! it is beautiful!!!!)
All we need now is a baby!!!!
