The Harry Potter nursery is now officially (ok, not offically. Mostly?) finished! I think there may still be some art added, and the idea of a rug has been bandied about for ages, but for the most part, this room is finito. And not a minute too soon, as those babies will be here before you know it. Let's do some looky-loo-ing.
Those amazing Hogwarts House baby-mascot paintings were done by my awesomely talented photographer/artist friend Stephen (check out his website if you want to go look at more pretty things/if you need a photographer in the Northern Virginia area!). I sent him a concept and basically said "make this happen all cute and stuff," and he definitely delivered; they are just beyond perfect.
The cute swirly names above each crib were painted up all sparkly and nice by Amanda, and my mom made a curtain to cover the closet with some magical little sparkly stars on it (since it's a small room it made more sense to nix the door. The curtain rod it's hanging on is sturdy enough to do pull-ups on, so there's no worry about the babies yanking the whole thing down on themselves -- Jason does not mess around when it comes to safety). There are cute details all over this room!
I think the best part of this room is how so many people have contributed their skills and efforts to pull it together. A nursery should be put together with love, and this one is definitely full of it. That sounds cheesy as all get-out, but what can I say. Babies! They make me go all sentimental!
