Nursery Design - Part 2

Hooray, the nursery is done!  With 6 weeks to spare!  As a reminder, we had already finished painting the nursery, but needed to complete the furnishings and decorating.

Some furnishings were easy.  Do you recognize this dollhouse bookcase? We already used it to stage our last couple of houses.  Now we're happy to give it to Adelyn!

Love these!

The other key pieces were a changing table/dresser and rocker.  Doesn't that look like a cozy corner to snuggle with a new baby?

For the other elements of the room, we spent lots of time shopping at the Pottery Barn Outlet, IKEA and HomeGoods.  We mixed and matched different items to pull eveything together.

Grandpa (or whatever he decides he wants to be called) installed the new curtains as part of the finishing touches, while Mom-to-be looks on.

Princess & the Pea Growth Chart

The last finishing touch - a growth chart to track Adelyn's height (we're a tall family, so it will be fun to see how quickly she shoots up!).

Now we just need a baby!

Crib & Changing Table:  Boori Regency from Bye, Bye Baby
Pink Striped Rug - Pottery Barn Kids (Outlet Store)
Quilt & Bedding - Pottery Barn Kids Hayley Design
Lighting - IKEA

  1. FYI- you can decide what you want the baby to call you all you want-she's going to call you whatever she pleases : )

    We were super against nicknames, we wanted plain grandma and grandpa and Charlie calls them papa and gaga, no changing it!

    Hey kid, that's lady gaga to you...

    1. Lady Gaga!!!! LOL And you're right, we probably don't have anywhere near as much say in this as we think we do!!! Thanks for sharing.


  2. Everything looks wonderful! Lucky little girl! My husband and I were going to be Grandma and Grandpa to our grandson, but he has changed Grandpa to "Pa" and my husband loves having a special nickname. Our grandchildren are such a blessing to us, and I hope you enjoy being grandparents as much as we do.

  3. WOW! Wow, wow, wow! That is ONE lucky little girl. I've told you our story... We had triplets over 5 yrs ago. Not only did we not have a nursery... we didn't even have room for cribs! :) Just pack n'plays. That room is bigger than what our 4 kids (ages 7 and 5) and 2 dogs now share. BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for showing us.

  4. I just love the feeling that the nursery brings with it's soft color pallet and punch of blue on the striped walls. I also wanted to let you know that I gave your blog the Liebster Award. You can see it here: http://www.abritofhappiness.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-liebster-award-nomination-and-bit.html Congrats, Helen

  5. Oh Helen, thank you so much for the kind words and the nomination!' I really appreciate it. Now I guess I need to think about answers to some of those tough questions!

    Thanks again, Laurel
