A Confession

Ok, I have a confession to make.  Last week, I mentioned Young House Love’s Pinterest Challenge and that I was trying to decide between artwork for above the changing table and a mobile for above the crib.  Well, I have all the supplies needed for both and have started on the mobile, but like all good things, it is taking a little longer than anticipated (I might have waited to the last minute to start).

Thankfully though, I do have something to share, and it is a result of one of the pictures I pinned on Pinterest and even showed you last week in my ideas for a mobile.

I pinned this because I love the paper balls (there is probably a technical or better sounding name for these somewhere) suspended above the crib like a cloud.  I didn’t feel like I wanted to use this as the mobile, but I loved the concept.  Especially since it adds so much color to the room.  (Not that our nursery is really lacking in the color department.)  I never researched how to make the balls or wear to buy them though.  So I just assumed this idea was not a likely possibility…

…until this weekend.  The girls from my small group Bible study hosted a baby shower for me and used paper balls for decoration.  After the shower, one of the girls offered them to me to take home.  I remembered my inspiration picture and felt like I could incorporate them somehow into the nursery.

I found the perfect spot for them….

I love how they mimic the round colorful leaves in the painting and fill up an empty area in the room.  They also match the colors of the boxes on the bookshelf.  It’s so much fun to see everything come together!

Did you notice the lamp underneath them?

I made this back in college (my dad helped with it) for a Lighting class I took using an old lamp and Cabbage Patch Kid.  My parents came to visit this weekend and brought it for me.  I think it looks great on top of the bookcase.  Look at the cool shadows it casts on the wall and ceiling when lit up.

So even though I didn’t accomplish either of the two projects I mentioned last week, I did clean the floor up by hanging the paper balls (Michael Luke did) from the ceiling and added a little more light to this side of the room.

What do you think?

    Noah is such a lucky little girl and I know already she has a talent for decorating. It’s part of her heritage. I can hardly wait to meet her.
