Finley's room....finally :)

Ya know...we tried so hard to have his room finished before he came....but it just DID NOT happen. 
And folks say to you empathetically as you tell them your pre-baby goals, "He's not even going to use that room for a while you know"....And you smile and nod, knowing damn well you won't have time once your little bundle arrives, no matter what room he's in, to do anything but take care of that little bundle. That pooping, crying, eating, cuddly bundle of pure and amazing magic. So fast forward to 4 months later and we're finally finished. We put it side for a minute until we could REALLY finish it. We're only waiting for ONE more thing. A rug. We just haven't found the right one yet. wink, wink...We'll post an update later. So when you have talented friends and generous family members, designing a baby room is sort of a piece of cake...so once we re-conveined and saw all the fun things we had to work with the room came together rather fast. A special thanks to Mirna Stubbs, Dean Kube, Lilla Rogers and the studio ladies,  and last but not least, my wonderful mother-in-law, Sandy aka Momsville and my father-in-law, Kevin, aka K-Pop. Our elephant bedding is from Land of Nod and designed by Allison Cole. Thank you Momsville! The "Hello, I love you" bear print by Julia Pott is a fave we've had for awhile and didn't have the perfect place for it until Finley arrived. The adorable alpaca print is Flora Chang. We made the mobile with help from a co-worker of Colin's. Thank you Hanna! There are some Petit Reve prints in there too. I mean, c'mon, Can you blame us? ;) As far as furniture it was mostly Ikea and then we took an old chest of drawers we had in the garage, slapped some knobs on it (lovingly painted by by K-pop). My hubs painted it and voila', good as new.

Looks gorgeous! Well done. That is one stylish kid's room. Love the wall color. My 'babies' are now 6 and 9, and I still haven't finished their room – kudos to you! Cheers, Saskia.

This is beautiful! This kid doesn't EVEN know how cool he is yet! Love the cloud fixture too. (P.S. We still have crown molding we never finished putting up in Torin and Hunter's room- maybe by the time they hit high school it'll happen)Love it!

Hi friends! Thanks for all your sweet words. It's just so nice to finish something you start....you know? I hope he enjoys it when he's a little older. Although right now he loves looking at all the bright color :)
