A gender-neutral nursery for our little girl, due December 12. 2010!
I wanted a gender-neutral nursery, with just a touch of girly. I'm not a fan of pink for girls and blue for boys, so going gray was perfect for us. I like clean and classic furniture that will last through any room change, so the white pieces from IKEA were perfect (not to mention cheap!).
Simple, clean, and functional.

Paint color: Misty Moonstone from Glidden, tinted 25% lighter.
I handmade the mobile using dowel rods and tying ribbons to them, then attaching jingle bells. A very inexpensive project that will be fun for Adelaide to look at and listen to when getting a diaper change!
To make the gutter bookshelves, read my instructions here on my blog, Our Little Lentil.
I love the picture collage above the bookcase. It took a while to lay it out perfectly, but with patience, it turned out just right!
I also love the bookcase, because my husband and I built it from scratch. Working together to create something for our little girl that will last throught the years is pretty special.
