Nursery Update

Chris and Steve painted the nursery today!! So exciting. I decided to put together a mood board with some ideas for the nursery I have swimming around in my brain. That is a LOT of work. The organizing swimming thoughts thing and creating a mood board.

 I'm assuming they will get easier the more you do, but holy cow it's time consuming. I think it looks really clustered but I wanted to include everything. Grr, and I just realized I'm missing a piece of wall art I want to DIY. Oh well! I know the image runs into the sidebar, but I am too lazy to fix it. Here is a link to it, but it doesn't have the numbers.

Okay, I'm going to go through the mood board by numbers. I hope it isn't confusing, but it probably is!

  1. What a place to start. I have no idea what these are called. They are those wooden rounds that you put some fabric into when you cross stitch. At least I think that's what you are. I've seen these before in nurseries, and they typically just use coordinating fabric to fill the frame and place them above the crib or changing table. Very cute! 
  2. I love this idea. I'm not sure if they're styrofoam or wood, but they're just wrapped in yarn. I want to make a "D" and maybe add a crocheted flower to it, and place it on Number 17 or 19.
  3. I love these curtains. We got them at Ikea. We will be layering them behind Number 7. Very girly.
  4. This will be one of the colors for the stencils. It's Sherwin Williams Daffodil, Harmony (no voc) paint.
  5. I adore these. Chris thinks I couldn't have found anything more hideous. He despises them, and that's putting it lightly. I think they would be adorable in the corner above her crib.
  6. I'm not majorly in love with the lamp because of the price. I would like to DIY one if I don't receive it at one of my showers.
  7. The beige/khaki curtains that will actually block sun rather than just being pretty like Number 3. Love Ikea!
  8. I'm planning on a collage of frames for above the changing table/dresser. I bought this frame from Ikea and I'm planning to put a picture of Chris' Great Grandma Delilah, a picture of our Delilah Rue, and a picture of my Grandma Mary Rue. The rest of the frames will be filled with random things, like the thank you card we got from Jonas' birthday party. I love the colors in it. 
  9. The first crib sheet we found and liked!!
  10. The mobile from the bedding set at BRU. I really like the poms.
  11. This is what color went on the walls today. It's Lemon Chiffon by Sherwin Williams (Harmony).
  12. Yay for the crib! Ours is a little less brassy than this. I really, really, really love it.
  13. I asked Chris if he liked these doiley lamps better than the poms. He scoffed at me. I love them.
  14. My sweet mommy (yup, I call her mommy) got this blanket for me. Can't wait to put it in the nursery!
  15. So the nursery is kind of an odd shape, to say the least. Well, it isn't that odd. But anyway, there's a useless wall and we are planning on making these DIY bookshelves to make it functoinal (it's the closet wall you see right when opening the door). And since there's two Number 15s, and it's way too much effort to renumber them, I will just tell you that there will be pops of pink in the nursery. That's it.                                      
  16. Ahhh, I really love this too. Chris did too, thankfully. I used to sing this song all the time, and I illegaly downloaded it in high school and we'd listen to it on our way to soccer games. I will have her make it in pinks, greens and yellows.
  17. I'm not even sure where this originated, but I know it was on it's way to the dump and I said absolutely not! I will use it someday. Well that someday is now. We will paint it (maybe white or green, Chris said NO pink), and redo the shelves obviously. I can't wait to see how it turns out and what knick-knacks I can decorate it with.
  18. There will also be pops of green. Exciting.
  19. The Hemnes Dresser from Ikea. I have one and we love it. Look, this person loved it as their changing table too!
  20. Obvoiusly I forgot to number the stencil, and as I mentioned before, it was way too much effort to renumber. The stencils will be in two colors (probably) over the lemon chiffon. They will be in daffodil and some other concotion we come up with (mixing colors).
This weekend we are hoping to purchase the chair rail and crown molding and get it painted. We are also hoping to start the stenciling (depnding on when they come in the mail). I hopefully will update soon!
