The Operation Pooh Photoshoot
Monday, August 14, 2006
So here's one of the shots I took of the nursery for our dossier. Again, I know we are getting all this stuff ready WAY too early in the process. But as I mentioned before, doing this (including buying the crib and the bedding and all that) makes us to feel like we're helping the process along, especially during the times we have to wait for others to get stuff done.

And we're not really going overboard on spending money since things like the border we bought at, hate to admit this, Walmart. Although I would like others to shop there as much as possible since we do own shares in that wonderful company. ?

And that bedding set was a bargain at BabiesRUs for $60 compared to the other ones I've seen that go for a few hundred. Granted it didn't have dust ruffle (just sheet, quilt, crib bumper and that wall hanging currently attached to that awe-inspiring 80's style floor lamp). Toss in a rug and sheer curtains from Target and the whole room (furniture and paint included) was probably under $400. Which is just being smart since we may end up changing the entire room in a year if our little one decides he or she wants a different style room.


I also took a couple other shots showing the room from another angle (which shows they have a closet in the room) and then another showing the room has it's own bathroom. And we took shots of our family room, kitchen, living room, etc. I probably over did it, but I did try to at least be not completely pretentious.

    Just a minor point - the border, curtains, and rug came from Target's Classic Pooh collection.

    But please continue to shop at Walmart :)

    Your room is darling and your baby is going to love it. I think it is more likely you and Stefanie will want to change it than your child! As I recall from quite a few years ago 2&3 year olds don't have very definite ideas on decor!
    But you have done a beautiful job, put time and effort into it and it shows. Children's things wear out much quicker than our things because we are careful and they just plain aren't. So it is wise not to spend a fortune.

    I am totally impressed. The clouds are perfect. Great looking room - that + the spool & Christian is pretty much convinced now that he's slumming it with the Warners. LOL
