So, we have pretty much put the finishing touches (minus a few things) on the baby's room...but, we still don't know when we are getting a baby. However, once we have been contacted that a birth mother has chosen us...we are ready to rock and roll.
Because we are adopting, we have no idea if we will get a boy or girl - so, we had to go with a gender neutral theme, but I did not want to go with the traditional yellow and green. I have a love for the color orange - so that one definitely had to be in there.
Here are a few pictures (sorry taking with my phone) of the room. I really love the orange, blue and green.
I designed the crib at Polka Tots Designs...and then bought extra fabric to create the frames and the window treatment.
My mom bought my brother a crib when his son was born - so, she also bought us the crib and changing table and we bought the dresser and the bookcase. I LOVE the furniture which came from JCPenney.com. Thanks mom, you rock!
We got really lucky on the glider rocker...a friend of a friend was selling their custom upholstered glider rocker which happened to be orange...I love it too.
Of course, being a big Longhorn fan - I had to put a little Bevo in the room too. :) More about that little rocking chair below.
This rocking chair was mine when I was about 7 or 8 - and my mom got the chair custom painted to match the room. Isn't it the cutest thing ever? Some may find it wild, but I think it matches perfectly!
And, as a surprise, my mom added this chair as well. Hopefully, our baby will be perfect and will never have to use this chair, but of course, if it is anything like me it will be there ALOT! HA!
Hope you enjoyed the tour...and we would love your prayers on our adoption.
