Elise's Nursery - The Beginning

So I thought I would share with you the nursery so far......

First, we will start with the paint color:

I did 4 samples and ultimately we decided on this...

Misty Teal by Benjamin Moore
Here is a pic I found of a big sample (better than the pic I have), 
it's second from the right going around the plug.
Don't you love it!!?!?!
And look at it next to the linens! :) 

Next, the crib:
I had about 5 picked out, but my biggest stipulations were clean lines, tall on the sides rather than the back, open, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I found this beauty for $340 and with free shipping a discount code I got it for just under $300!! Sweet!

I decided to do a dresser as the changing table, thought that would be better as a transitional piece. 
I needed one with lots of storage and was a certain size....found this one on Amazon and love it! :) 

Next, the wardrobe:
 There is one in the room right now and I love it, but it is dark wood and that didn't really go with my I found this one on Ikea. 
It's sweet, right? 
I am going to switch out the handles for something softer and more girly, but for $100 it makes me very happy!

And last the glider:
I was stressing about this one. 
They are all so expensive and I know they take a while to get in so we needed to make a decision ASAP! 
All I wanted was a white glider that looked like a nice piece of furniture. 
Not off white, not a rocking chair, and not $800!

Well, I happened to take mom out to USA Baby last week while we were out furniture shopping for her to show her an idea of what I was looking for and they were having a sale....not a huge sale, but a sale. 
Aaaaaaannnnnddd the awesomeness that is mama bought us one! 
HUGE relief!

We got this one.....
but in this white material...
for $450! Sweeeeeeeeeet!!!!!!!

So those are all our purchases from last week. 
Needless to say, the nursery is moving right along, and that makes a pregnant lady very very very happy!

Once I get all of the furniture in and the room painted I can start with the decorating part! 
Here is the rug I think I have decided I just need to figure out pink or green.....
And of course the lighting...

 I have loved this light from Ikea for a long time. I think it is girly but funky all at the same time....which is kind of the theme I am going for for the room....girly and funky!
But I am also tossing around the idea of a chandelier too....

especially one with pink.... :) 

Sooooo, that's where we are at so far! 

I, of course, have pretty much everything else planned out in my head...pillows, curtains, wall art....but that's another post.
So here is my Nursery To Do List:

order crib
order dresser
order wardrobe
pick out mattress
purchase changing pad

Oh my! You are SO organized! We weren't like that with our first pregnancy. We bought nice (unfortunately expensive) furniture to convert and hopefully last forever and had tons of things given to us to decorate. I like to call it "eclectic", haha. Her room is going to be GORGEOUS!!

Amy said...

Love all your nursery decor so far. If Jackson had been a girl, I was going to do a chandelier in the nursery. I just think they are so pretty and girly! Can't wait to see the room all finished!

so fun! love it all, can't wait to see it all come together... LOVE all the colors and the white furniture!

makes me sad we're moving in 6 months or so and our current nursery is very "temporary" but that just means I get to plan a whole other one in a few months.... while taking care of an infant [fun, HAH].

I love all your ideas and that color is absolutely stunning for the walls! Your little girl is going to have the most amazing nursery ever :)

Megan said...

Love all of your nursery decor for sweet little Elise! :) She will love it all I'm sure!!

We had a hard time picking out a glider as well! We were SO in love with the gliders at PB but NOT the price! We searched for MONTHS comparing them all to PB and then finally found ours at Babies R Us. They had JUST gotten in the line so it was awesome because we got to purchase the glider and ottoman separately which meant we got to use a 20% off coupon on each piece! :)

Looks like everything is coming together for you! Can't wait to see the nursery when it is finished! :)
