Jack's Room

Our most recent project has been getting Jack's room ready for his arrival. We painted the walls a greyish blue and kept the ceilings the same beige color that it originally was. The dresser is one I found in Canton a few years ago, and was using to store all my wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, stationery, cards, and who knows what else! Now we are using it as Jack's changing table. We decided on getting a Jenny Lind crib for Jack because of cost and size (it's unbelieveable how expensive some cribs are out there). We absolutely love it now that we've seen it all put together! The bookshelf is from Nadeau, my most favorite furniture store ever! I wasn't so sure about the color when we found it, but I think it works well with the room.
A few of the girls from my church made the baby bedding. Kim helped me pick out fabrics, which ended up being completely different from what I had in mind! I love how everything turned out. Lieanne, Kim, Julie, and Elizabeth - thank you SOOO much!! You all are so talented!

My favorite part about the room is Jack's name above his crib. Josh had one of his subcontractors make the letters for us. They are made of plywood and are about 2-1/4" thick. The tallest letter measures about 16" tall. Josh did such a great job mounting them. We are still waiting to put a scripture verse up above the mirror. I'll re-post the photo once we get that up on the wall. I think it's supposed to come in sometime next week. Aunt Kristyn and Miss Gaby are going to help get it on the wall for us.

The only thing missing now is baby Jack!
