Can you believe that we're at the end of the first month of the year? For the last couple of weeks, I've made additional purchases for our home. I think at this point, my husband is ready for me to go to TJ Maxx and HomeGoods rehab. It is hard for me to stay away from these stores--the prices are great, the inventory is unique, and I feel like we need so many new things to make our house a home. Well, Patrick isn't buying it, so it looks like my free shopping spree days are limited to items that are needed for the baby.
Speaking of the baby…we decided on a crib set and furniture for the room. Initially, I wanted to get a black crib, but I fell in love with this set from Babies R Us:
And the great thing about this is it will grow with her going from a crib, to a toddler bed, and then a full size bed.
I also found the most adorable crib set:
And the most fun item is seeing our mural come to life. My very talented friend, Tene will draw the mural and here are the sketches for the wall (remember, we're doing a Parisian theme room):
So now I am just stuck with picking out the paint color and the crown molding for the room. I am not sure why I'm dragging my feet on this one; I guess I'm scared to make a permanent choice. I know I want the walls to be a soft pink and I want hot pink accents like this chair I found from Target:
With this bold color of pink, I guess I should go with softest of pinks on the wall. With the mural I should make the little girls dress, beret, and shoes a bold pink, like the chair. What do you guys think?
In addition to baby stuff, as I said earlier, I purchased some more items for the home. Here is a picture of artwork that I found at HomeGoods that is in our master bedroom and then I found these faux leather storage units at TJ Maxx to put in our office space to hold CD's and DVD's:
Well, thanks for reading and for giving your opinion on paint color too…Happy Building and stay away from HomeGoods, yeah, ok…who am I kidding?!?
