Let The Wild Rumpus Start

6 Jun

Back when I previewed my nephew’s nursery I said we were waiting for a piece of art.

We’re still waiting for it!

I’ve never really had any issues with Etsy, but the shop we ordered the print from seems to think five weeks to ship a print is standard. I’ve waited less for custom furniture.

They’re also pretty unresponsive to emails and last I clicked on the shop’s link, it seems they’ve jumped ship.

I could get all pissy about it or just move on.

We moved on (temporarily) and took pictures without it.

I did improvise a bit and mocked a chalkboard with the cardboard that came inside the frame purchased for the print.

Up on that wall should read, Dream Big Little One.

Sad face.

Blanket on glider was made by a friend’s mom.

Giraffes seemed to be the gender neutral animal of choice.

The blanket is from blissbaby – an Etsy shop we can trust.

It was made by my sister’s friend.

Crib bed skirt was made from the fabric we used for the baby shower.

Here’s a before shot of the room.



Here are Max’s thoughts on the Etsy shop that took too long:

Happy Wednesday!

    Good for you for blowing the whistle. It is just plain highway robbery! However, you could get a canvas and paint that on there! Looks fairly simple! that way you get your design!

    That’s my biggest nightmare when I order from Etsy. I’m disheartened for you, but the nursery is adorable as hell and I’m a huge fan of giraffes!

    What a cute stinker. You have a lucky sis- you pulled that room together nicely! Tell that etsy seller to suck it and get a talented blog friend to make you something.

    What an absolutely lovely room! I need to check out that quilt shop! And boo on the print shop. That is just awful. Don’t let it ruin your perfect room.

    Love the last photo – happy tear!
