We have a bookcase full of toys and books. I bought a mat for the floor so that she won't bonk her head when she rolls over. I have a chair for me to sit in and we got a tv to play PBS Kids or something more adult for me when I'm getting bored.
But during her naps, I'd like to try and find something else to do. I've found four projects on pinterest that I want to try out. I am, however, not being very proactive in getting them done.
Texture Wall - I found this on pinterest and thought it would be fun. We've already been to Joann's and picked out a few fabrics for the wall. I had no idea how expensive fabric was and especially since I don't want large swatches of fabric. Anywho - I have these all done, I just have to find a way to attach them to Gigi's cork board without using tacks (I don't want them to fall off onto the floor).
Book Shelves for Gigi's Room - In the old house, we had some small book shelves up in Gigi's room but with the new house, she has a whole playroom with large Ikea book shelf. I thought it would be fun to still have some books in her room so I found this pinterest idea for book shelves using Ikea spice racks. I have the spice racks - I just need to paint them white. I should just get this done - it would be super easy.
Magnetic Chalkboard - This one will be fun as she gets older and should be super easy. I have the drip pan and chalkboard paint. Again, I should just get it done. Note - mine will not be as fancy as the one in the picture.
Alphabet wall - I've really wanted to do this one since I found out that I was pregnant, but it will be the most time consuming and expensive project to do. I've bought the scrapbook paper and three letters (her initials) to see just how time consuming this will be. Who knew that these 8" paper mache letters would cost $2.99 each!?! I'm going to try the letters I have this week and make a decision on if I want to finish the project or not.
