You should start a top 10 things not to do thread for people to read and add too. My son is only a week old and so far I havent had a problem. but Im sure there are many things I will regret putting in the room
Ya, but it's all in fun and it's changeable! If you're like me you'll want to change it even before your child does! Or if it's your first, maybe they'll be moving into a new room and the second baby will get the same nursery as the first. For first time moms the nursery is such an important thing. Ya, the baby won't care, but we do!
Hi, jumping in from the Nov 2005 PR....I just discovered this forum today. Love all the nurseries. Its so much fun to see how everyone has decorated their special room and how much love and effort has gone into them. Great job ladies and enjoy the nursery to its fullest. My baby is 14 months and I still love spending time with him in his room. Anyway heres a major dont...
-Dont use white bedding or atleast white sheets cause they will stain and its very hard to get them out. I have 2 sets for Jehan's room...a plain yellow sheet which is stained and although it doesnt show all that much its still visible to me. Im sure white would have looked a lot worse. Actually my SIL has white crib sheets and they look terrible. The printed toile sheet looks fine though. Cant see anything on it. I used a white bumper which is thankfully fine so no issues there.
If I think of anything else I'll be sure to let you know.
Something I really like and looking into for my sons new room is the chalkboard paint. I am looking into painting the bottom half of two walls in his new room witht he chalkboard paint. My son will be four in May.[/b]
I love this idea, but have always wondered where the dust from the chalk goes. Even with "dustless" chalk, there is dust. Hmm. I would do it in a play area or garage wall where kids play, or in a play house. Somewhere where there isn't carpet.
I wanted to use chalkboard paint.. but then I thought maybe its a bad idea cuz you dont want your child to think writing on the walls is okay, if he does it in other rooms. But if he knows better, then I think thats the coolest room ever!
When decorating the nursery, don't have it so full of furniture that you don't have plenty of room for a bookcase of books and at least one toybox of toys! You forget about those kinds of things for a newborn, but by toddlerhood you'll need them.
