Baby Doc

We have a new baby in the family!  I wish I could share a picture here, but just don't know how the Docs would feel about Baby Doc's picture being in what can be such a public space.  So, just trust me, he's adorable.

He was a bit early and the Docs were not quite ready for him.  I was there last Saturday to help Daddy Doc finish up his bedroom.

His room is a tan color with gray furniture.  Accent colors are navy blue and a dash of red in the bedding.  There's a travel theme with airplanes and trains, and darling luggage shelving.

Here's what we added to the wall behind his crib:

I purchased 3/16 plywood, cut it into strips about 8" wide.  I found a Minwax stain called "Worn Navy" - it was perfect to make these new wood strips "old".  They are light weight so we just used the nail gun to shoot 1-3/4 inch nails through the ply, the drywall and grab into the studs.

It looks really nice - better than I anticipated!

Still some things to hang - the luggage shelving and other decorative things, but his bed is made and ready for him, whenever Mom and Dad are ready to move him out of the bassinet!
