Building the cot

We assembled the cot at the weekend! It’s the first step (apart from the obvious decoration of the nursery, which was completed about 8 months ago) down the road of preparing attempting to prepare the house for the baby.

We guessed pretty well with the furniture colours – the wardrobes and chest-of-drawers were from MFI, while the cot was from Mamas & Papas. Side by side, they’re a pretty good match. Here’s a photo of our efforts:

Next step will be letting the dust settle and then damp-dusting everywhere so it’s clean before we put the sheets, etc. on.
