This is the nursery that will be the home to our first baby!
I had saved pictures of nurseries I liked on pinterest. Once I knew what we were having, I picked elements from nurseries that I liked to make one that was right for our baby.
The nursery is a mix of traditional and modern. I chose items that were made in America or as close as I could get to being made without dangerous chemicals. I knew we wanted a nice glider and that is where most of our money went (aside from clothes).
Paint color - Dolphin Fin by Behr
Crib - Baby Mod Modena
Dresser and side table - Ikea Hemnes, painted to match the crib (it's more of an antique white when you buy it)
Shelves - Lowes
Gallery wall pictures - made by my sister in law, frames are Ikea Ribba
Glider - Best Chairs style Ayla
Baby bedding, curtains, pillow - www.babybedding.com
Mirror - Target, painted all black
Bulletin board - made using this tutorial: http://www.athoughtfulplaceblog.com/2011/11/diy-bulletin-board.html
Chevron Blanket - http://www.etsy.com/shop/SparklesSewShop
3 painted canvases of animals and stuffed elephant- http://www.etsy.com/shop/LilSunshineStudio
Striped canvas - made by me
Canvas baskets in closet - Martha Stewart from Home Depot
The glider - it's so comfy and perfect for the room. I also love the chevron blanket - it was very well made.
Have fun! It was important to have the husband help enjoy the process of designing the nursery so it would be something we would remember doing together to prepare for the baby. I loved sitting in the glider every night looking at what we had accomplished each week while the baby kicked in agreement that he approved!
