Today I am officially 26 weeks pregnant.... which is great!! It is also starting to put me into a minor panic about the state of the nursery.... specifically the fact that we got off to a great start but it has recently been at a stand still. Well today the glider arrived and it is even more fabulous in person in the twin's room than it was in store! So naturally I am now wanting everything else complete (did I mention that we have a backyard reno going on as well and that I am more or less useless when it comes to doing anything other than lying on the couch now... the joys of being on restricted activity!). So I need to exercise a tad bit of patience as Andrew is only one man and our to-do list is growing by the day.
I have decided to focus on the aspects that I can do from this couch... such as order the final fabric for the crib skirts and decide on the window treatments for our twin girls' room.
Right now we have two simple ikea panels hanging from a silver rod and some wood horizontal blinds. In my opinion, both need to go. We have decided to go with a simple white roller blackout shade to replace the wood blinds as I hear blackout is the way to go to keep the light out and the babies sleeping as much as possible. As for the panels.... I've found a couple of options but am open to suggestions.
Right now we have two white cribs, a white leather recliner and a dresser soon to be painted (still deciding on the colour though). I was thinking white for the panels but am now thinking that might just be too much white...
here is what I am liking so far...
Ruffle Rings Drape from Pottery Barn Teen... Yes I know these are white but I am loving the texture and how they would pick up off of the polkadot fabric for the bed skirts.
|Audrey Chenille Dot Panels by Pottery Barn Kids. I know pink works with our wall colour but I'm not sure about the pale pink at this point.|
|Polka Dot Sheers by Pottery Barn Kids.... not sure about the sheers... I might like them... I might hate them.|

So please help a pregnant & indecisive woman out (that would be me) and let me know what you think about these window options or if you have a better idea!
