We’re going to have a baby here soon, but we haven’t done anything with the baby’s room.
See? I’m not lying:
What’s the hold up, you ask?
Other than sheer laziness?
Well it’s the fact that we don’t have a theme picked out, silly.
Babies’ rooms need themes people.
Wildly adorable themes, and that crap they peddle at Babies R Us isn’t cutting it.
That? Up there, with the basketballs and footballs? No way, I’d rather eat dog food for an entire year.
So we had to start brainstorming.
First we were going to paint a stripe on the ceiling and just do a modern room. We found this room in a Domino Magazine as inspiration:
But then we saw this old subway poster and thought we should do an industrial revolution theme and use the colors black, rust and navy.
But then we saw this old life preserver and captain’s mirror thought we’d do a nautical/pirate’s theme.
But nautical and pirate themed rooms are super cliché and over done.
Which got us thinking, what isn’t cliché?
You never see a rat nursery. And I found this amazing rug that would go super nice with his crib.
Maybe a Jesus theme? Because he’s coming at Christmas time, and we still haven’t ruled out the possibility of naming him Jesus.
We can line a shelf with those fancy Jesus candles they sell at the grocery store in between the ethnic rice and Duraflame logs.
Or, hey! What about an anatomy themed room? We can make a mobile of internal organs, and hang photos of the digestive system.
Clearly I need help, do you guys have any ideas? Cliché or orginal, whatever, I’m desperate.
