At least this weekend wasn’t all bad for the Natifuss–she was the recipient of her very own playroom yesterday, which Mike and I have been working hard to create over this past week. We’re still not completely done, but our little laundry room has been mostly transformed into a baby-safe space, and so far Natalie has loved it.
Here are a few shots of the almost-finished product:
I fell in love with a little red armchair for her reading corner, and picked up a matching storage ottoman to use as a toy box. We finally bought a foamy playmat to cover the floor, and cleared our old cd shelf to make room for a bunch of Natalie’s books (her favorite game these days is to pull books off shelves, so this way at least it’s her durable cardboard books that take the biggest beating). I painted a rather rudimentary tree mural on one of the walls and door, and we just bought a safety gate to block off the storage closet that shares the space. Overall, our little cherry-themed playroom is awfully cute, if I do say so myself.
