Here is Judah Kaliko's "crib." Get it? Haha, I'm so corny. Corniness aside, I've pretty much finished Kaliko's nursery. I wanted it to be fun but not wacky and colorful but not tacky.
My two inspirations were my baby shower theme which was "It's a Small World," and a Picasso framed print I picked up at a garage sale for two bucks! I took the colors from the print and used it for the room. I also have little touches of "world" stuff in the room, from the globe, to art on the wall, and the not-yet-finished airplane mobile I'm making to hang above his changing pad.
I wanted to include meaningful touches in the room to make it cozy and warm. There is art that was custom drawn and colored by my mom for my "Small World" baby shower and hand-written notes from close family and friends. I also enlarged Kaliko's birth announcement as a sweet keepsake.
I look forward to all the fun memories that will be made in this "crib!"
