updates to micah's room

We cleaned out Micah's room (for the most part) a while ago, and we've been working on simple projects around his room. We still need to buy our outdoor storage shed so that we can move out a lot of the boxes that we packed up and piled in his closet! We did get his curtains to block some of the light that comes in from the rear parking at our apartment. They are just basic chocolate brown...
We also got his crib and it was put together immediately when it was delivered :)
I've also started making some fun accent pieces for his room. We are converting an oversized nightstand to be a changing table...that's a project for Alex seeing as how we need it to be raised 7 inches! Because it has great storage in it for all things Micah, I decided to look for some baskets to hold things like diapers, wipes, washcloths, etc. I realized quickly that I am very picky (actually, I have always known that!) and also not willing to shell out a whole lot for baskets that are going to be hidden behind doors which left me with very little options. My mom had some extra storage bins laying around and offered them to me. I had an idea to cover them with paper and mod podge and they came out so cute! Now I'm bummed that they're going to be hidden! Here's a before and after of the bins....
I also used strips of paper to cover these plastic bins that we found at Target for super cheap. I didn't want to waste the space in the changing table!


Here's the last thing I've been working on...I have made these for some of our nieces and our friends' babies, and I knew I wanted them in Micah's room. True to the randomness of his room (all sorts of shades and patterns), I chose to do each letter in a different kind of paper. Every craft store in costa mesa is out of chocolate brown grosgrain 7/8" ribbon so they aren't finished quite yet.

So that's the update...I can't wait to keep adding to his room. Micah's Yaya (alex's mom) made his quilt, and his daddy is working on some fun prints for the walls and when those things come together we'll almost be done! It's hard to believe that in less than three months, we'll be bringing him home! We can't wait!
