Carsyn's Room


It's Show Us Where You Live Friday over on Kelly's blog. This is my first time to particiapte, but thought it would be fun to show off Carsyn's room. I used this Friday as a deadline to get it finished. I almost made it, but there are still a few things I want get done in there, but for the most part it's done.

View from hallway.


Here is the crib that her Daddy bought her. Little bonus from a Vegas trip!


Here is a close up of Carsyn's bedding. I love it. Our Sunday School teacher's wife, Kim, is amazing and helped me pick out all the fabric. I was just going to go with Pink and Brown, which are great colors, but she opened my eyes to a whole new idea. These colors go better with the rest of our house and hopefully will grow with Carsyn as she comes a big girl. 5-6 girls from our Sunday School class spent HOURS making this bedding. They are so generous. Carsyn's bedding was the first of many. So far they've made 3 sets and I'm sure there is more to come as others keep getting pregnant.



The crib is a convertable and they made the coverlet large enough to transition to a comforter for her toddler bed. Thanks girls!



The chest is my toy box from when I was little. My sister recovered it several years ago with the black fabric. Before it was a yucky green vinyl. The Large black frame is something I bought at Hobby Lobby in the first year of my marriage much to my husband's dismay. It was 90% off and I couldn't resist. He had no vision for it ;-) I knew I would use it some day. And finally 5 years later my purchase paid off! The day before I went to the hospital my friend Jenni and I were digging through Linen's-N-Things looking for a deal (it was their very last day of business and EVERYTHING was 95%). Jenni found the lettering and it was only $2. So, needless to say, I'm very proud of my less than $20 big bang for my buck!

another view for the full effect.


Curtains! I finally got these finished this weekend. It's a project that started 3 months ago.


Here is Carsyn's new dresser. It came in on Monday. Now we can stop changing our sweet baby on the floor. Granny is very grateful!



What nursery is complete without a sleeping baby?!?!? Mind you, MY baby doesn't sleep here. Not at night at least. Just the occasional nap.

Thanks for stopping by to see where Carsyn lives...hopefully some day!

  14. did you put the lettering on fabric then just stretched to the frame? I love it! Also, did you make the pics above the changing table or buy them at Linens N Things too? Love their coloring and fun designs. I am proud of you for being able to get the room done, I know it was a challenge :)
