Pins #82 & #83: Colette’s future Room

June 23, 2013

Eventually I hope to post the final room we will be putting together for our baby girl.  But for now, we’ll just have to enjoy the little touches that will one day help inspire the completed space.  (Milo is still sleeping in the nursery and Colette will be sleeping in our room for a few more months at least).  Here are a couple things that will be part of future that room that we’re enjoying now!

These bins/baskets/buckets whatever you want to call them were pinned from Land of Nod.  So cute right?  I pinned them after looking for the bins my sister got for her baby’s room (the larger version of these in gray).  Literally the week after I pinned this, I found the almost the EXACT item, in small and medium sizes at my favorite housewares store, Home Goods. Both baskets cost me a total of $14 while at Land of Nod, the cost for one is $19.99 – score.

Here are the buckets in use – the small one for diapers and the larger one for blankets:

Next, as I talked about in an earlier post about making fabric canvases, Sarah Jane’s Out to Sea Collection inspired my ever changing vision for Colette’s future room.  My mom is 90% done with her quilt, I made the canvases and also made the super easy minky snuggly baby blankie.

Snuggly blankie = minkie fabric one side, pirate girls on the other, sew inside out, turn it around, lots of ironing, 100s of pins and one decorative stitch around the edges.
