Landon's Room - Part 1

To say that I am a little behind on blogging would be a small understatement. The last two weeks have flown by. I have had so much to do but, now I am back in the swing of things and will attempt to catch up.

About two weeks ago Mom and Dad came out to visit and we had an Extreme Nursery Makeover weekend. Of course, we didn't spend the whole time working on the room. We also enjoyed time together. We celebrated Christmas and also went to Atlanta for the night, which included a yummy dinner at Maggiano's.

I digress...back to the room!

Here are the "Before" pictures of Landon's Room. I must admit I am a little embarrassed to show them because we literally have done nothing to this room since we moved in two years ago. I didn't want to do to much to it because I always knew it would be a nursery!

It sort of looks like we took a picture of this sad little computer desk!

The room is almost all cleaned out!

Dad was kind enough to spend his time off painting the room and adding moldings. Here we are midway through....

I was a little worried at first that the color would look to "girly" but once it was up I loved it!

While Dad worked on the room, Mom and I worked on the bedding. I had found my fabric well over a month ago and after some long Internet searching I finally found enough for everything I needed. Since, Heath and I are such dog lovers, the clear choice to decorate the nursery in was puppy dogs. Once I found the fabric it all started to come together. I also knew that I wanted to use turquoise and red.
Here is how it all turned out...

The wall decal is from etsy. I love it!!!

Close up of the dog fabric. If you look close Jackson and Odie are both on there.

This was just the beginning of the room. I still have to complete the bed skirt and mom is also having a quilt made for the room. I cannot wait to see how that turns out. I also have a half dozen other little projects I want to do in the room. Once the rest of the furniture is put together and all the finishing touches are added I will post new pictures. Lets be honest though, the room will not totally be complete until that little man is home in his bed!
