a glance at beck’s room is my fave

September 4, 2012

I think my title as blogger might need to be revoked. For one thing, I’ve never worn a top knot. For another, I don’t have a smart phone. And for another, I’m just now finishing Beck’s nursery and he’s four months old. If I was a real blogger, I would have had it done the week after I found out I was pregnant and it would have been featured on a number of sites by now.

I remember waiting for him to arrive and thinking that I would finish it the week after he was born when my mom was here to help. Ha! I barely left the bed for a month. But last week I finally got the courage to brave the crowds at IKEA and only broke my friend’s sewing machine three times in order to add those final touches. Now both Beck and I can enjoy the room before he’s able to scale the shelves and break everything in sight.

    First, I love a little bit of procrastination. Second, I love anyone who can incorporate a moose in to a room. Way to go!! Love the space, oh and I agree with Kelly, I want to see more pictures!!

    it turned out beautifully – love the reoccurring woodland elements – and for the record, ours wasn’t done until 7 months!

    The tree mobile is great. I love the animals also – my daughter had a few of them – they look so cute displayed, and she loved playing with them too.

    Love the glimpses of your house! Maybe a regular feature??

    Whenever I think of Ikea now, I think of Liz and Criss (and the other couples) fighting over a table.

    My, oh my, do I love this room. I’m obSESSED with moose and how perfect and manly is Beck going to be?!? Moose make men. This is just too cute.

    More pics, please! And maybe a lunch date…

    Ah!! This is awesome Melanie! Do you want to adopt me? =) Love the banner + mobile!

    I just laughed out loud of your description of a “blogger”! Ain’t that the truth. No one wants to be a stereotype anyway so good for you!

    The mobile is adorable!

    Ha ha! I’m also in blogger denial. I can’t even do a braided bang. I propose we create the new generation of bloggers…the kind who procrastinate and elevate bad hair days to an art.

    perfect…love the choice of books…and the animals will be around for years…my 10yr old still plays with his!

    You’re my favorite kind of blogger–it’s not as if Beck’s offended his nursery wasn’t perfectly styled when he arrived! But of course, it is now!

    ha ha ha! no top knot and no smartphone for me either! and it took me 3 years to paint my daughter’s room something other than the greige that was in there 🙂 Beck’s room looks fabulous!!! love love

    I love it! Don’t be so hard on yourself, you moved right before the baby was born. The nursery for my 2.5 month old is almost done… maybe getting it done by the time he is four months old is a good goal! Enjoy!


  • On September 5, 2012 , Melissa said:

    What a sweet nursery! I’m finishing up our little guy’s nursery too, even though he just turned one. Oh well, haha!

  • On September 5, 2012 , Katie said:

    so precious! and I love that you made the banner & mobile! really sweet.

    You have such perfect style! And my daughter is two and I’m STILL working on the nursery. So, you know, you’re way ahead of me.

    Adorable & fun! I just discovered your blog (where have I been, I know)…and have 2 month old twins so I’m enjoying your baby posts here, among other things! Our little men look a bit like each other, round faces & bright eyes 😉

    Very cute, now you need to get “Where I the green sheep” Little Miss J’s all time fave.

    Woah, beck’s mobile is my fave. I was about to ask you where it came from, and then saw you made it yourself, so extra awesome! It reminds me of those flensted fish mobiles, I would love to see a tutorial on how to make this some day.
