We mostly finished up the nursery before Daisy was born, but I'm only now getting around to posting about it.
I picked up a ceiling hook kit at Home Depot for a couple of dollars and had my husband install it. We weren't able to get wiring not intended for the interior of walls to make a long cord for our light, so I've got it plugged into an extension cord. I'm going to be covering the yard "rope" I made to hang the ball with some extra nursery fabric. I have a good friend finishing up the crib bedding and once I get my extra fabric back from her, that'll get done.
Meanwhile, it's a wonderful middle-of-the-night nursing spot. My little girl loves to have this 'night light' on and it gives a nice pale glow to the room. Just enough light for me to see, but dark enough to sleep comfortably. It's great and I'm so glad I took the time to make this light.
PS. I still haven't found a black cushion for my rocking chair, but I will.
