He was only able to hang a couple of pieces of tin, we accidentally purchased two different types of tin roofing. Some of the tin had a textured look and some had a shinny smother finish. I was a little disappointed that we weren't able to finish today but not nearly as disappointed as my hubby is that he will have load up the mismatched tin and return it to Home Depot.

Then I covered the front of the box in fabric and took ribbon and cris crossed it. Using thumb tacks I secured the center of each crossed ribbon. Then I glued a smaller piece of the box to the back side and placed magnet stripes across it.....

I had a quarter bag of Veggie Pasta and a quarter bag of Penna Pasta that I boiled.
Then in a separate pan I sauteed a can of Tyson chicken breast chunks in olive oil and minced garlic.
After the noodles where cooked I placed them in a casserole dish and covered it in a half a jar of Ragu tomato sauce I had left over from making spaghetti last week.
I mixed in the sauteed chicken,
Topped it with mozzarella cheese.
Finally baking it in the oven at 350 until the cheese was completely melted.
It was so so so yummy!!!!
Even my little man liked it :)

I bought a $4 craft frame, scrape book paper, & paint. I used Mod Podge to glue the paper to the frame and then seal over the top of the frame. I wrote a sweet little saying on the front of the frame, which would look better if I didn't write like a first grader.......
Then I hung up my farmer sign I made a couple weeks ago, a star that I got from my super sweet next door neighbor, and a black tin shelf that use to be in Paxtons room......
My favorite project so far is the baby's name. I use fabric backed with card board and cutout the letters o his name. I then used hemp ropes and clothes pins to hang the letters. I hung the rope on the crib just to take a picture it will eventually go above the crib on the tin wall.
I moved Paxtons rocking chair in the baby's room so when I was in the nursery with Ian he could sit next to us. I thought it would be cute to make a pillow for the rocking chair to match the room....
I used a old pillow I had laying around the house and some extra fabric I had left over from the letters.....
Again using left over fabric from the letter I decided to cover some cloth diapers to match the room and placed them in the bucket I purchased for my homemade cookie Bouquet.....
Next I went to work on this super cheap $10 lamp I purchased at Walmart........I covered the shade with fabric then trimmed in it with some fuzzy fridge......I also spray painted these iron star hooks that I am going to use as curtain rod holders. I would of gone ahead and hung the curtains but since it is not a good idea for my big fat pregnant butt to be up on a ladder I decided to wait and let my hubby do it......The last two things I didn't make but I am so excited about because they match his room perfect. I bought this super cute cow hamper at a Lonestar Baby for only $15. I LOVE IT!!!!!This Little people barn is probably the coolest thing in his whole room.Its is a special edition set that is made to look vintage. I first saw this in Parents magazine and was going to order it but when I was at Target the other day I found this one.... I am sooooo excited about his vintage barn toy !!!!Everything is really coming together so cute! Believe it or not I still have tons to do, I just cant wait for that final finishing detail ,Baby Ian!

We put raised the baby's crib and dressed it with this oh so sweet bedding......
Then with a little team work (her doing most of the work) we painted the walls...
As you can see we decided to go with the dark brown or as my mother refers to it turd brown lol. I am so so glad we went with this color, I LOVE IT!!!! We painted 3 walls, the wall the crib is against is going to be covered in tin roofing.
I was going to finish the day by going to register at Target but I will save that for another day, I am Pooped:)
