|See? Stickish but not too branchy.|
As a quick side note, I do not like this light fixture at all. Don't you think it looks like a blobfish?
Then this birdmobile sat in our nursery for a few weeks because we struggled putting 3 tiny eye hooks in our ceiling. We finally started by nailing a small nail into the ceiling and then removing it and screwing in the eye hook. This captain morgan pose happened a lot.
|Did not have a little captain in him|
During the time when the birdmobile sat in the nursery, the clear thread that had held it up during it's construction became tangled up and frustrating to work with. We played around with it like a eyeball-threatening marionette until we liked how it sat and tied it up. Right around this point it was late in the evening and we had been attempting to hang this little thing for about an hour and a half, we were pretty slap-happy and the "talk birdy to me" song started happening. This is going to be over the changing table/dresser, so we had to make sure it was fairly high so that Dillon could work comfortably underneath. Since he's going to be changing lots of diapers!
|Pardon the terrible photo and the pile of stuff on the dresser.|
