When I was pregnant with my daughter I wanted to create a nursery for her that she would be able to transition into easily. It was also really special because that was the first room painted in our new home.
http://projectnursery.com/projects/abc-and-as-easy-as-123/ my inspiration came from the nursery link above found here at Project Nursery!
For paints I also used Behr. Shelving was from Home Depot. Crib is from Baby Appleseed "Davenport collection. http://www.babyappleseed.com/
I would say that my favorite item would be the soccer ball in glass box that her father purchased. We are both fans of soccer and the mini-ball has the FIFA 2010 World Cup logo which is the year she was born :)
