The Cactus's Crib is set up!!
He has painted walls,
a musical projection mobile (but the figures will probably change),
a protective father,
AND a custom crib skirt!
I made the crib skirt on Sunday, the last day of my uber-busy spring break....I got the basic tutorial from Young House Love, but sewed my hems instead of using iron-on hem tap and added a pleat in the middle.
I added the pleat primarily because I'm not the world's most precise measurer, and it was far easier to adjust a pleat than deal with me cutting things too small.
It's attached the the frame with velcro...which was a ton cheaper and easier than using another piece of fabric as a base. I'll probably sew on the velcro eventually...but the stick-on is working for now.
In other news, The Cactus also has a rocking chair.
Mom and I found it at Nebraska Furniture Mart.
It's actually a piece of patio furniture, but it was super comfy and
WAY more affordable and any rocker/glider I could find.
Plus, the cushion was already the right color--SCORE!
In sad news, I think the baby takes after me.
Not even born yet and his room is already a mess.
Not a good sign.
