My Nursery Project - Part One
It's finally happening. I moved to Vegas about nine months ago and ever since have been living full-time as a toddler... Well, as full-time as a responsible working adult can anyway.
I work in the fashion/art industry as a model, production tech, and promotional manager for various production companies and I am for the most part self-employed. I work roughly 3-7 hours a week and have the rest of the time to live the lifestyle of my choice, my dream come true.
Because I spend so much time at Mommy's place, I have neglected my condo on the other side of town which I got solely for the purpose of building a nursery. Yesterday however, I was bitten by the bug. I went to my place and began cleaning it from top to bottom.
My downstairs (2nd floor) is my adult space. It houses my living-room, my kitchen, my downstairs bath, and my guest bedroom. I haven't done a whole lot with the place, as I'm never there. My upstairs (3rd floor) contains my master bedroom (nursery), walk-in closet, and master bath. The 1st floor has my basement, garage, and laundry area. Now that you have a general idea of the layout of my condo, I'll get to the good part.
Day - 1 (October 12, 2011)
I have collected a few things with which to begin decorating my nursery. There are a few things I've ordered that will take time to arrive (like my crib and car-seat), so I'm doing what I can with what I've already got. Mommy picked me up some wall clings when she was touring the East Coast last month that are animal and hello-kitty themed. A pink and white decorative rug lays on the floor at the top of the stairs. Also on the floor is a colorful letter/number foam locking-tile play mat.
While I was cleaning yesterday, I wound up with a huge pile of clothes that I wanted to donate to Goodwill. I made my way over to the store and dropped them off and decided to take a peek in the store. I found a Pack-n-Play and a Fisher-Price play set both for really cheap. They now sit on the floor, making the room much more inviting for little ones. I now also have a place to nap until my crib arrives!
Pack -n- Play
There are a lot of walls and surfaces that I can decorate and use in different ways. I'm brainstorming and so far I'm having a lot of trouble coming up with ideas.
My walk-in closet doesn't have much done to it yet. It's basically a diaper supply closet for now. There is a three-tiered shelf that I'd love to field ideas for! If anyone has any suggestions of what I can do with it, please let me know. It was difficult to photograph, but I think I got some good angles of it. (Chair included in photo for scale).
I'm always looking for ideas and suggestions of what to do with my nursery. I know many little ones dream of the ideal nursery, so if anyone wants to share their dreams, ideas, or suggestions to help me with the development of this project, I'd be happy to hear them!!!
Hopefully over the next few days, I'll have gotten started on applying the wall-clings to the various chosen points in the room. Mommy and I were throwing some ideas around earlier, so hopefully it turns out as good as we think it will
