It’s beginning to look a lot like…a Nursery!! And we are in the final countdown of becoming a family of 3. Less than 7 weeks to go! Things are getting real.
It feels like yesterday when we first found out that we were having a baby!! People say the nine months will fly by but Ufta! This little dude is going to be here before we know it!
The room has come a long way from what was a blank canvas not too long ago…
I wish I could say that the nursery has been under construction for awhile now but in reality we scrambled to start and finish it (to at least be presentable) the week before our Big Reveal Party! And though we are not entirely done decorating the room, we have had a lot of of our friends asking us for details of the theme of the nursery so we thought we would share what we have done so far.
First baby item we knew that we needed and ordered was the crib. I knew I wanted to go with a very classic look for the nursery, and being blue is my favorite color and we just happened to be having a boy…what better choice to go with than blue tones for our baby boy’s room.
The crib is called Langley from the Eddie Bauer collection at Target. And of course that soon to be daddy right there had the crib put together in no time. So our starting point for the decor of the room was our off-white crib.
The other nursery item I knew that I would be needing was a rocker. Through lovely Pinterest I had come across some double rockers, and was sold on having a large comfortable couch style double rocker. Once we had those two larger items purchased, I found some simple wall art decor at Pottery Barn kids and we were set for the party!
Welcome to Baby M’s nursery…
It’s a good thing this little dude is small, or maybe a dude, because one of the biggest challenges with this room is that tiny closet. I’m sure Jamie will have some sort of organizational unit installed soon.
I picked up this double seated rocker from Walmart. The pillow and the white washed wooden anchor wall art came from Pottery Barn kids.
Remember these bad boys? I left them for the owners that bought our Andover Remolded Home, but couldn’t stop dreaming about them so ran back to West Elm to grab another set. And best part was they were on clearance this time around.
The white washed blue whale wall art I picked up from Patina. The chandelier was left in the house from the former home owners. We scored on all the free chandeliers they left for us when we bought the home!
I bought this adorable white washed seahorse mobile from Pottery Barn Kids. I love the shabby-chic casual look that you can incorporate into any nursery.
We still have a ton left to do, buy, and somehow find space to put everything. But we’re getting there…
Jamie thinks he’s pretty close, but I think I have him beat!
7 more weeks to get all of our essentials and the nursery complete!! I’m sure my “nesting” or whatever they call it will kick in soon and I will be in high gear to get the room/house done. Can’t wait to show you the final reveal of the nursery! And hopefully there is a new tenant to introduce you to as well!
