I wanted a nursery that was gender neutral, and utilized fun prints - no theme.
There were so many nursery's out there that were yellow and grey. I really wanted bold colors and graphic patterns to set the tone of the room. Since we didn't know the gender of our child, it had to be flexible enough to work for a boy or girl. Once the baby arrived, we could then throw in gender-specific items.
I like clean lines, mixed with some traditional peices. The rocking chair was my grandmother's!
The wall art and mobile were definitely my favorite projects to complete. The circles above the crib are embroidery hoops with fabric stretched through, and the mobile was scrapbooking paper cut and threaded with white thread and small crystals to hold them in place. Time consuming, but worth it! Madeline loves to look up at it while on the changing pad!
There are so many to name! The mobile, making the craib skirt with my mom, the corince board my husband made; and the list could go on and on!
I sketched out what I thought I wanted months before actually purchasing any items. It took my entire pregnancy to find the right patterns and items, and it was so worth it!
