The Nursery

Well, the baby might not have a name yet but she does have a room. It's pretty much done except for a few finishing touches that I need to do. So here it is for your viewing pleasure......

This is the view as you walk into the room
I fell in love with the fabric on this chair and that is actually what convinced me to get black furniture and then the ideas took off from there
I hope this baby likes to be rocked more than Julianne did. She was over it after about 2 months. I'd like to get some use out of my pretty new chair!
This is the cornice board. Shaun made it, my dad painted it and my mom glued the flowers on it. I love it!
The window (my mom made the curtains)
Her going home outfit...and that is a sheet made out of minky. It is so soft - I want one! My mom also made all of the bedding (skirt, sheets, bumper)
I got this lamp at Homegoods and then got the beads to go on it at Wal Mart of all places.
She is set for clothes
The other side of the closet. Like I said, she's set. These are only 0-6 months clothes. Good thing we are having another girl to get use out of all this stuff!
The view looking out the room.
The dresser and mirror. That mirror used to be gold. I painted it. What a pain. I was wishing I would have just bought a new one half way through my project.

Close-up of the dresser. It has crystal knobs that I just love. The picture doesn't show it very well.
The decal above her crib from Uppercase Living. Those things are a pain to put on but I love how it came out.
There you have it. A big thank you to Shaun for helping me paint the room, installing the shelves/poles in the closet and making the cornice board. And a huge thanks to my mom for helping me hang everything, making the bedding and curtains, and helping me put that decal up.
Now I just need a floor lamp for a corner of the room and I want to hang a few things on the large wall on either side of the decal. It feels good to have it done and ready for her!

I'm speechless. It is BEYOND beautiful. Perfection. What a lucky little girl! Where did you find the chair? I'm drooling... I have baby fever already, and this perfect nursery is not helping appease it at all.

Can't wait until your beautiful girl arrives!!!
