I would say it's about 95% complete.
We are still waiting for the blinds to come, I still have to sew a valance for the window, and there is one more thing I need to hang on the walls. But it's a completely functional nursery and I can't help but spend a few minutes or hours each day walking around it, sitting in the rocker, and just enjoying the room as a whole while I wait for my little one to arrive.
A lot of people have been asking to see inside the nursery and I was always hesitant to show them because I like to show people a finished product. But, like I said it's functional so I have no problems showing it off now.
It all started with me painting some dinosaurs on the walls.
and it just grew from there!!
The palm tree was a hand me down from my bosses, they used it in their kids nursery. I think it fits perfect in mine. I might however dye the cover green.
I know bumpers are a no-no, but I just put it up as some added decor. The baby won't even be using this crib for awhile anyways because we have a beautiful bassinet in our bedroom. When he does move into his room the bumper will be removed.
I had such a hard time finding the right size bins for this changer. I went to 4 different stores before I finally scored these! The best part is that the ones on the top shelf can be written on in chalk!
I love this light fixture we got at Ikea! it fits perfectly!
Our cozy little rocking corner. I have yet to make the blanket to cover this chair, I am hoping to do that this week.
We have SO many books to read our baby boy! My husband is very excited for story time :)
This was the best solution I could come up with to store his clothes. We have such small rooms so a dresser was not an option. I managed to get a really good price on all of the storage in the closet, I think my grand total was around $60 for it all. The baskets inside the hanging closet organizers are from the local dollar store and they hold all of his clothes, bibs, and socks neatly, the bottom bins are full of blankets, and sleepware.
These Disney Dollars were something my brother and I got when we went to Disney in the late 80's. They don't even make these anymore. The were matted, framed, and hung in my brothers room when he was little. He gladly gave them to me to put in my son's room :)
Remember those dollar store frames I bought?
Well here they are! they turned out so great with just a couple coats of spray paint!!
I found these box shelves on clearance so I purchased two sets, spray painted them, and added the scrapbook paper to the back to give them a little pop of print and color against the walls.
All but the two largest frames (the green dinosaur on skates and the Wolveraptor prints) were from the dollar store. I think my total for frames was $35. With the spray paint this project cost around $40. It was so easy to do and it makes the prints in them pop so well.
So it took awhile but the room is finally in order. I wish I would have kept a tally of how much we spent on it. I know I scored some major deals on some things in here (seriously people, dollar stores, and if you have them in the area, Big Lots are your friend! So many great deals there)
Oh and that bassinet I mentioned earlier? Well my dad made it for me! It's absolutely beautiful and I couldnt have asked for a better gift. It looks lovely in our room and I know our little one will be so comfy in it.
It matches our furniture nicely and whenever we are done with it, it can be completely disassembled and packed away neatly in storage. It can also stand stationary or with just a small tug on two of the bottom pins, it can swing to help rock the baby to sleep. I can't wait to use it!
Well I hope you enjoyed the tour of my baby's nursery, I would love to hear any feedback or if you have a nursery/kids room of your own I'd love to see photos!!
