I realise now with a baby that my working life is very different and actually looking after Stanley and the joy he gives me is more important that pursuing my 'career'. However I have really enjoyed being creative in kitting out his nursery. I wanted to find unusual things to go in there and not buy too many new things.
His cot is my cot that I had as a kid and I sanded down and gave a lick of pale grey paint.
The changing table is something I inherited from my parents that they used to have in their kitchen.
The images in frames on the wall are cut from wallpaper I found in the old boiler cupboard when we turned it into a little wardrobe for him.
I was really pleased with these. His room was obviously a nursery once before (our house was built in the 30s) and the paper looked hand printed - possibly from the 50s. It was very badly marked from the old boiler and people building round it so I was happy to save what I could.
Phew long post!
