Kelly over at http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/ has a new installment of Show us where you live Friday. This one for me will be a little different - this one for me will be show us where your sister lives. My sister Allison and my brother in law Brad are patiently awaiting the arrival of their first baby due on June 19th. The room is finally just about complete so I thought I would share a few photos. I guess it can count a little towards me since I was the one who found the bedding and some of the decorative accents. Oh, and the wall color too! HA!
This is the view from when you walk into the room. Wall color is Benjamin Moore Ylang Ylang from the Aura Collection.


Look at those cute little pick up trucks on the radiator. Brad has been collecting them for years and finally has a reason to put them to good use!


The curtains in the room were made by my very talented Mother. A lot of cursing went into those valances, HA












Over in the little alcove, we found these prints from www.landofnod.com . We thought they were perfect and a great punch of color.




Here is the changing table area with pictures of their other "baby" ~ Tucker.




The bedding came from www.poshtots.com as well as the painting. Posh Tots have been the best to work with and so accomodating to all our special requests. If you look really close, you will see that the license plate says COOPER.
















Here is a close up of the bedding - Isn't it the cutest thing ever?















And of course, no baby with the middle name "Fenway" room would be complete with at least one old Red Sox sign. I found this on ebay and thought it went with the vintage feel of the room wonderfully.

This post would not be finished without a gratuitous shot of momma-to-be....



So there you have it. Now we just have to wait for Cooper to make his debut.




22 Days and counting!
