Prepping for the baby: DIY mobile and refinished baby furniture

I have begun to work on the various DIY projects in anticipation for baby and the nursery. The coming of our little bundle will probably be one of my biggest DIY projects since our wedding (and will probably trump that too). We are 24 weeks now, and I'm hoping to finish most of these projects sooner than later - in case I don't feel up to it later in pregnancy.

 The first one I started (I have them all in various stages of progress), is a 'woodland' mobile for above the crib. It will have little critters and such to float above baby while baby drifts off to sleep. I have been keeping track of the felt pieces I've cut out with hopes of sharing the pattern with you all at a later time :)

I was also fortunate to be given a previously loved crib for baby. I decided to refinish it, and being that chalk paint is non-toxic and super easy to apply, I choose that route. It's a nice soft, light grey colour with the slightest tint of brown. I was also given a pre-loved dresser that I am refinishing the same way - this way all of our pre-loved baby furniture will be all matchy-matchy for the amazing cost of a bit of paint :o)

I have a few other projects on my mind - some will have to wait until the nursery room is cleared out, but others I'll begin as soon as these two projects get a little further along.  I am hoping to give each of the above projects their own post when they are complete in placed in their proper new home in the nursery :)
