Seven Dwarfs Nursery for One Lucky Baby

25 Oct

After a very long hiatus that can be blamed on house hunting, moving into and decorating said house, and being generally anxious and excited that we are expecting our firstborn, we have a new post!

This room is my favourite in the house, mostly because there will shortly be a baby in it. But also because it is adorable, and we are proud of our rookie decorating skills. We decided before we knew the gender of the baby that we wanted to do a Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs theme, because it’s actually pretty gender neutral for a princess story. If the baby ended up being a girl, we could always play up the princess/castle theme, and if it was a boy, we’d go for a more woodsy look. Plus, I have a ton of Dopey ornaments and collectables from when I was a kid.

Can you tell what we’re having based on the room?

Mr. C made the felt apples above the changing table. A tutorial is available at Purl Bee: http://www.purlbee.com/apple-coasters/

And I made the bunting above the crib:

The bunting tutorial doesn’t exist, but I mean, come on. They are fabric triangles sewn onto a ribbon.

We also made the wreath on the door full of apples and diamonds (because diamonds aren’t just for girls- the dwarfs seemed to love them). The “I’m Grumpy” throw on the bed is made from one of those cut and tie blanket sets from Joann Fabrics, but unfortunately it looks like the item is no longer available! I’m glad we snatched it up when we did.

Now all we have to do is wait for Baby Arts&Crafts to arrive!
