Making Progress...not so much

January was such a productive month for me. Was I wrong to think at 8 months pregnant that February would be the same? Apparently. Mostly I had design block in Girl #2 room (after a couple of weeks I realized it was because of the paint color and decided the whole room needed to be repainted before I could do anything else!), and I was having the hardest time finding just what I was looking for on Craigs. Why is it when you're not looking you see stuff, and when you are there's nothing?!

Anyway,  I was able to get my crib skirt made ( you'll never believe how I did it!), buy a dresser, order a stencil, and get the room edged out in paint. I'm having this baby in three days so that will have to do for now!

Here's the fabric I used for the double layered skirt:

Fabric I'm considering for the chair

Red will be the accent color. My husband is a HUGE Ohio State football fan (Go Bucks!), and as this is his only son I wanted the room to reflect that. However, I'm naturally drawn to blues and greens and I hate overly/obviously themed rooms. I didn't want the room to look like a sports bar so I'm using the Ohio State red as an accent...

...and using a mixture of vintage Ohio State programs...

...and maps as art.

There will also be some vintage photographs of the stadium, my dad when he played football, and some not so vintage photos of when my husband played football. So the football theme will be there, just understated! I can't wait to pull this room together!
