The Ps had a baby girl last August and L asked me to make a stool for her. Usually I try to make these things match room decor, but there wasn't really much of a theme for this little chica's room (think custom, gender-neutral bedding in greens, blues, and khakis with pops of pink and other colors). Since the Ps live in Austin, I had to go off of pictures that Mrs. P posted on Facebook to get an idea for color schemes. One thing I don't trust: my monitor's ability to show colors true to life. I mean it looks fine on my screen, but who knows! Those blues could have more yellow to them or something. So I was left to blaze my own trail and hope it didn't look like a seventh grader made it at the end. Here's the finished product:
All in all, not my best work. It was hard to get inspired by a room I'd never seen. But apparently the Ps liked it. I wasn't there to give it in person, but that's the word on the street.
This next one is one of my favorites! I don't know if I just like making stools for boys or if it's the parents that made this one so fun, but even though I was in the same situation with this stool as I was for Baby P (never met the bambino, never seen the room), I had an idea to use as inspiration. The goal was fun without being too babyish. This was the end result:
Maybe it's the color scheme or maybe it's the minimalism of it, but this is one of my favorites I've done to date. L and I had so much fun meeting Jake and seeing his parents when we were in Austin over Thanksgiving. Yea for special friends and their babies!!
