Nursery To Date

I've been talking about it for months. I finally have a few pictures to share! Major, major things happened over the last week in the nursery and I am breathing a huge sigh of relief. The clutter and disorganization of things miscellaneously floating through the room was really getting to me. {Must be a side effect of pregnancy because I cannot tolerate clutter!}

Before I show you, let me tell you what I had in mind. I wasn't gung-ho on a baby blue everything nursery {and Stephen insisted it not be Carolina blue} so I immediately knew that grey would be a main color. I love the tranquil feeling, yet also clean look of a grey room. I did want it to be sweet enough for a baby, but also give him room to grow into. I think we have accomplished that so far and I think what we have planned to finish it will complete the look.

Lets go ahead and start!


I knew I wanted these Ikea Ribba shelves to display his books. Currently working on his book collection but we do have a start :) My brother gave us Sophie for part of our Christmas present. I love me some Sophie!


This is the crib and dresser corner of the room. We got his bedding for Christmas. I love the grey!!


Grey, aqua blue and white are his main colors but we have plenty of pops to keep the room lively.




He's already got quite a few friends in his crib! Of course, they are only there temporarily until he's sleeping in the crib himself!


Stephen and I bought this cute little guy the day we bought his mattress. I love his sweet lil' face. He also plays four different songs when you pull on him!



His dresser is starting to fill up! This will also double as the changing table. It has plenty of storage for clothes and neccessities. I didn't go the plain changing table route because I wanted something that would grow with him and not take up more space!

Another big change in the room: He got new carpet! This boy is getting the royal treatment already, I swear. When we built the house we went with a plain builder grade carpet and we want it all replaced just three years later. Little man got first dibs and we love this Mohawk carpet! What have I been missing out on...man!


I bought these bookends for his nursery, but since we have the shelves I'm not sure if they will stay or not. Once we have the changing pad in place we will see how much room we have for accessories like these.



The ceiling got painted and we also upgraded with some crown moulding. Once the walls, ceiling and trim got painted it really felt like a nursery! Stephen worked hard every night last week to get it done.



One last fun thing so far, I made these closet dividers for his sweet baby clothes! {Closet still has to be painted!} I will show you this simple project later on this week.



I hope you enjoyed the nursery so far. I am loving how it has transformed into a space we already love... and in just a few months we will have our sweet little man in here with us! More to come...

xoxo.

This room gives me baby fever! I love that you went with the grey route! The Corduroy book, closet dividers, the bedding, the toys, oh my!

The crib is perfect. Oh, and i love that you painted the ceiling and added the molding. That rooms has gone through a seriously amazing facelift. You should post before/after pics!

Laurie @ The Rookie Wife said...

How did I miss this post?! I'm in love with the nursery! I wanted to go with the gray and aqua color scheme for a boy as soon as I found out I was pregnant! I love the dividers..where did you get them? Also.. good idea for crown molding. It realllllly adds character to a space. We just purchased the Chicco Travel System this weekend. The Car seat had the best reviews.. but boy are you right about it being heavy. Can't wait to see more posts:)

Love this tranquil room! My favorites are the books and that blanket draped over the side of the crib!
