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 vision....so 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!
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 on....now 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.... :)
