Wrapping up the nursery decorating.

This is Cole's revamped dresser. Mom made the ceramic owl on the left and Jason (Frankie's boyfriend) bought the name train from the Greenbrier.
 Mom drew this Woodland Creatures pictures, which is displayed nicely over the crib.
 My sister-n-law, Casie, made this wall art.

 Frankie made these two pennants, "Baby Cole" with owls....I love them.  They were shower decorations also!
His room is pretty much complete.  I have one open space that I would like to fill with some type of bookshelf and/or a toy chest.  I might have to come up with a combination of the two for my father-n-law to make!  I'm so blessed to have such a crafty family.  I wouldn't trade his homemade decorations for the world!

Beginning of Baby Room Decorating

Now that our house is practically finished it's hard to post new & appropriate stuff to this blog.  But, now I'm working on decorating the baby's room.  I've managed to clean out the closet, give away the bed and desk, and move a dresser to another room.  Saturday, I received the wall decals and today, mom, dad, Eric, and I put them on the wall.  I absolutely love them!

Here's the room before:

And the final product: 
I'm so excited to get this part completed.  Now, I plan to take the leaves to Lowes, get some paint matched and paint a dresser.  I hope to find small additions (chair cushions and such) that match the wall art to make the room come together.  Stay tuned for more to come.
