I am 33 weeks pregnant - the baby is due on the 29th of July and i have started being creative again!
It started with painting the nursery. Back is this post i had considered having an underwater theme based on the book The Rainbow Fish.
In my brain i had the concept of being underwater and have the water line above my head, and having this waterline as kind of a border around the top of the room. The colours of blue, teal and purple. So after stealing loads of colour samples from Bunnings (though the amount of money i have spent there in the last 3 months i should have shares in Bunnings) i came up with this colour scheme.
Ice Pack Quarter (bottom left) for the main walls, Lagoona Teal (bottom middle) for the wave, or water line and Spritzig Quarter (bottom right) as the sky above the water line.
As usual what i have in my head and actually executing the idea are two different things, and, as usual, i forget that i am carrying around one hell of a baby belly (i will get to that later - it is HUMONGOUS!). So i had Husband's help with the main wall bit but did the roof, waves and sky all by my self (mostly while he was playing Playstation or making baked goods like scones for me - my pregnancy craving).
So here it is. I am very happy with it and the colour are so peaceful. My wave in 2 parts are a little spaz but i am so happy with it.
The room is still in a bit of a shambles, we haven't decided whether to have the cot in our room, as recommended by the SIDS people (sudden infant death syndrome) for the first few months or to put in straight in the baby room (any advice from anyone is appreciated!!). so we haven't put it up yet.
The change table in the picture above was bought cheap on ebay and i sanded it back and painted it myself, i love it! but i gave up on doing the same with a 2nd hand cot i bought and purchased another on from Ikea. (after a Keno win!).
So... next is to decorate!
