Sneak Peek: The Nursery

Once we brought Gates home from the hospital it became apparent that our one bedroom apartment was insufficient; while small, babies have a lot of stuff.
Baby Stuff
Our original plan had been to convert the room for cubes' office into a nursery for Gates.
The First Nursery
For this room, I'd purchased two sets of decals (blades of grass and tree branches with leaves and birds) to decorate the wall above the crib and the baseboard on the wall opposite the crib. Luckily, I did not start the application. (They're not repositionable and the application is incredibly time consuming.) At the moment all of the grass has been applied to the walls of the nursery in our new flat. I've also applied three of the branches, finishing the addition of leaves for branch, and partially finishing the addition of the leaves for a second branch.
Gates' Nursery
When purchasing decals, especially multi-colored decals, double-check to see if they've been assembled onto transfer film for you. I'd assumed that all decals would be delivered this way; Elmo Studio did this. Those I purchased from Jay Deco did not arrive this way. The transfer film that shipped was also too short for one of the main branches, and the instructions as to how to apply them were less than helpful. If your decals come with less than intuitive instructions, check out these application instructions from Dali Decals.
How has your home changed as your family has grown?
Ciao Bella!
