Here are some pictures of what we're working with:
Rocker, blanket & boppy (and yes, I am a rather impressed with myself for sewing that boppy cover sans pattern. Actually I've sewn everything in here without a pattern, the changing pad cover, crib skirt & fitted sheets. Yay me! But the boppy cover involved a zipper & it turned out really really well.)
And here's a lame view of the crib skirt. I hated it when I'd change the crib sheet & the skirt would get all screwed up, so I just made the little skirt part without the deck & Velcro-ed it onto the sides of the platform. Sometimes I even amaze myself. (except for the fact that those bubbles really ought to be going vertically instead of horizontally. And yes, I'm too lazy to fix it.)
Dresser & mirror.
The flooring. It's not as red as it looks in this picture. I think the black would look particularly nice with the flooring.
Then there's this super cool quote we'll be hanging up with a black frame & font. (p.s. I adore this shop, I bought like 18 of my Christmas presents from there, so check it out.)
And here's the crib. This is how the whole thing started. The nasty thing needs to be repainted & painting is my own personal circle of hell, so I think it's kinda pointless to take off white paint only to put more white paint on, soooo....that's where I'm at. Would the black be too much for a baby's room? I've googled some pics of other nurseries with black furniture & I think it would be awesome. The rest of the room is so light. There's one more fabric involved; there's the goldfish, the bubbles & then an orangish-red graphic fan pattern with a white background. It all goes really well together without being too matchy-matchy. So what do y'all think? Paint it black? Some of it? Just the crib? Repainting is not an option, so I have to choose very carefully. What do you think?
