Nursery Ready for Baby J!

by Jenn

We have continued to make progress in tidying our house since moving in, and with the completion of my brand new studio, I was able to finally move out the miscellaneous props and art work from Baby J’s room so that we could better enjoy his space.

Last month Debbie Fermanian of Creative Designs by Debra met with us to plan for the Wizard of Oz mural Jeff was hoping to have created for us.  She had so many great ideas and mostly with Jeff’s creative ideas, came up with a plan and sent us a “rough sketch”:

Mural (sketch)

Early this month she came back and for two days worked her magic and transformed a blank green wall into a work of art.  I happily documented her progress:


Now it is complete and we could not be happier with the result.  Debbie is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to transform a space in their home with a mural.  Here are my images from today with Baby J’s room neat and tidy and ready for his arrival:
