Nursery Update!


It's been a couple weeks since I've done an update on our nursery...and I'm excited to say that we're almost there!  A lot of progress has been made...which makes me SUPER giddy!  So much so, that I just had to share.  

You last saw the crib here:


And I'm happy to report that we've recently made some fun additions since then!


For starters, we got the crib bedding in!  The color scheme for the nursery is orange, aqua and gray so the bedding definitely helps kick start the theme.  I was surprised with how few options are available for boy crib bedding.  I didn't want anything too babyish or literal, so I decided to go down the custom route...thank goodness for Etsy.com.

 The bedding is custom made by House of Henderson and I'm very pleased with the outcome.  We ordered two sheets...the one you see above and a polka dot version.  We're not planning on getting a bumper but I don't think it will be missed based on all the patterns already happening in this space!  


I LOVE our new rug which is from Land of Nod.  Did you know Crate and Barrel has a baby and kid's store?  I sure didn't!  But now that I do, it's very very dangerous!  I think the rug helps break up the room, while also tying the color scheme together.  

Oh and you caught a little sneak peek of the curtains...they're being hemmed as we speak.


And here is our new rocker!!  It's the Sleepytime rocker by Nurseryworks.  It normally retails for $700, but we were able to get it for $500 on gilt.com...definitely a deal based on the going rate for gliders and rockers these days, PLUS it's super cute!  And comfy.  Win win, if you ask me.  The fabric is a microsuede, which we know cleans pretty easily since we have the same material on our sectional.  I also love the wood base...it ties in the look of our crib.  A special thanks to my mom for this sweet gift!  :)

The pillow was also a super steal!  You all know this popular Serena and Lilly "Buddy pillow" well, but it retails for $88...yowza!  Luckily, one of my sweet readers tipped me off to a blogger who was selling hers for half price.  SCORE!


We sprung for the Ikea Hemnes dresser which will also be the changing table.  The nursery has a small closet, so the extra storage is necessary...and already being utilized!  We added these cute glass Anthro knobs to give it a little interest.


This area is where I had envisioned the rocker to go, but I'm not sure if there is really enough room.  So for now this little side table sits in its place.  I bought the lampshade from Lowe's of all places...it's Allen + Roth...I love how the gray border helps the lampshade pop!  

I got the idea of the toy bin from Jessica's sweet blog.  It's Smith & Hawken for Target...now we just need toys!  :)  


Here's proof of the tiny closet.  Ryan added two hanging bars and a shelf to maximize storage.  The dresser is one we already had...it works as extra storage, however, we may move it out if hanging clothes demand more space.


So that's the progress thus far!  I've ordered some prints to hang on the wall over the dresser.  We still need to find something for over the crib...we're thinking a map.  But really, it's the little accessories and necessities that need to come together to make this room complete.

I have to say...it's been fun to walk by the room and see it come together.  I love sitting in the rocker and thinking of the little life that will soon occupy this room.  Already so in love with this little guy!  

I'm thinking the next time you see the nursery, it will be finished!  Can.not.wait!

  10. Love what you put together so far! The color scheme is fantastic. I love that people are moving away from the old style of nurseries and going toward rooms that will grow with a child. Much more economical!

  21. Love the updates! And wow, what a score on the Buddy Pillow, I still can't believe I spent what I did, but I chalk it up to my "reward" present for making it through the NT Scan unscathed. (rationalization right??)

    I do the same thing with sitting in the chair and thinking about what will be.

  34. I love it! Changing tables are a waste of money if you ask me... we used a dresser, too, and I love it because we can store the diapers and wipes in one of the top drawers and use the rest for toys and clothes. Plus, it will grow with the baby and can be used in future rooms. It looks so great!

  44. I love the way it is turning out! It looks great. You want miss the bumper either. We have a white mesh one and I am so glad I didn't go with a padded one. The eyes are naturally drawn to the skirt and sheets without it. Compared to Noah your little guy has a ton of storage space but I definitely utilize her dresser/changing table storage too.

  49. The nursery looks adorable!! I really like the idea of using a furniture piece as the changing table...it can translate so much better as they get older! I picked out one at Ikea when I was pregnant last year, then we lost the baby, but it is still on my list!! These posts are helping to me to look forward to our adoption finalization and getting the nursery ready!
