Baby C's Nursery

5.14.2010

Since Baby C is due in just two weeks... I thought it was time to share the nursery with you. Paula came by for a visit a couple of weeks ago and took some great photos of the nursery while she was here. Thanks, Paula.

I still have a few things to do--- but knew I should go ahead and have her photograph what was completed so far.
.
On my to do list:
- more pillows for the twin bed

- nailhead trim for the panels behind the twin bed
- a few more accessories here and there
- changing pad cover
.
Other than that--- here is our gender neutral nursery on a budget. I'm very pleased with the way things turned out. Now I'm just excited about Baby C's arrival. That will make the nursery complete.

- furniture: my childhood furniture from growing up
- chair and ottoman: from Good Will and had it reupholstered in a neutral linen
- accent pillows: Amy Butler's Coreopsis in Green from here
- all other fabric (white and linen used on bumpers, bedskirts, and chair): King Cotton
- walls: Monterey White (HC-27) by Benjamin Moore

Brooke, It is wonderful! I want to spend all day in there! It's beautiful and special with all your childhood furniture. I love, love , love it! The you are my sunshine above the crib just really touched me because that is the song I sang Jack every night when he was a baby and still do. :)

The nursery is just lovely! I have a question about the awesome lantern. It says it s for outdoor use, did yo have to make any adjustments to use indoors? I love how you painted it the same color as the crib, gorgeous, thanks.
