enjoying the now

As excited as I am about what's to come in May, I'm trying to cherish the present as much as I can. It's our last few months of almost 10 years with just the two of us, so I want to make the most of it! One of the things we enjoy most together is working on house projects, and the nursery has become the latest one. It's been a joint effort, with E doing the painting + installing and me sewing (and designing, of course!) This weekend, we took a huge step in clearing out the guest bedroom furniture, so it's really starting to look more like a baby's room. When it all comes together, I'll post complete photos of the space, but for now, here's what we've been working on.

We had these rattan-covered stools that were in bad shape, so I recovered them with a kind of double pillowcase cover. I LOVE the Joel Dewberry woodgrain print! Now you know what I meant when I said I was making stool covers--no, I didn't mean diapers:) as someone suggested!

And the gorgeous grey-painted furniture. This is the same fresh aire color we used in our dining room, but it's so different on the desk and rocker. My grandfather bought this rocking chair for my mom, so I'm happy to be able to use it. It'll get a new cushion soon--I'm just waiting for the foam to go on sale at Joann!

This afternoon I'm making Valentines with my international students, so I might be back with some of our creations!
