Crafty Baby!

Planning a baby's room is much more difficult than I thought it would be. I have to set him up in a room that has all wood paneling and cork floors, so pretty much a solid pallette of yes, brown. I also didn't want to create the standard pastel crib/changing table/rocker glider/Pooh bear set up that I usually see in pictures. I toyed with the idea of a rock vs. country room with an acoustic guitar on the wall...then I thought of a "toy" room decorated with old tin toys. I still haven't really settled on any type of theme, but have started crafting things nonetheless. So far the main centerpiece will be a large circus print and circus photos that were my grandmas. I like the idea of grandma Betty looking over our little guy while he sleeps. And what kid doesn't love the circus?!

Hi TP-

I love the curtains. I think the room looks great. And honestly - wood paneling rocks!

What's GP's middle name going to be? I'm just curious for monogram purposes...

later gator,

It's going to be Anton -- after his grandpa on Jason's side.
