Finally! We are done with our little girls nursery. It has been mostly complete for a couple of weeks now but we needed to add a few finishing touches. We LOVE the way it turned out and are so excited to bring our little girl home. We wanted something simple and natural and I really didn’t want to deal with a theme, like butterflies or sea creatures. I wanted to pick colors that we enjoyed and just pull in elements to tie it all together.
This is what we started with! We never really did anything with this room when we first moved into our home. It is the closest room to our master bedroom and we knew it would eventually be our first nursery, so we decided to just leave it empty. Along with that, it was basically our dogs room… they would be gated in this area when we would leave the house, and because of that the carpet was left pretty much destroyed.
Our first step was to pick bedding… and a huge step it was. After a lot of going back and forth between buying something and making something we found our bedding and loved it! Once we had the bedding we were able to chose a paint color…
…paint, install a ceiling fan, and take out the carpet
…our good friend Andrew came over and helped us get started on the new floors
…then hubby and I took it from there. I was about 7 months pregnant in this photo but I helped with everything I could; crawling around on the floors helping the hubby measure, cut and hammer everything in. Of course the dogs were very curious!
Finally, we had a new room- complete with new paint, floors, fan and lighting!
Since we were on a roll, we went ahead and put the crib together that night as well!
From there, it was all about the details! We hadn’t had any showers yet, so we couldn’t really do a whole lot more. We were still waiting on a couple of our bigger items like the dresser, mattress and glider.
Tomorrow- the details!
