The Nursery: Revealed!

I have blogged a little bit about some of the work that we have done on the nursery... painting... putting the crib together... getting my wonderful glider.  But it has been several weeks since I last posted anything about the progress of the nursery.  That's because I was doing my favorite part... decorating! =)  And also receiving various items from our friends and family members.

The nursery has been "done" for probably about a month now.  By "done" I mean that, if she came really early, we would be able to make due with what we had in place.  However, now I feel that the nursery is REALLY done... i.e. it looks cute, too! =)

Here are some photos of our little one's room... just waiting for her to show up!

Found this decal at Target.... had to make a few adjustments, but I love the idea!

For shopping lists and "to-do's"

Sitting area... complete with cushions c/o my soon-to-be sister-in-law Jennifer, for some cozy "guest" seating. =)
Dresser/changing area. The frames will be filled with baby photos. There is also a white-painted letter hanging in the hole between the three shelves... but, since we aren't revealing the name yet, you're going to have to wait to see the letter! =)
Found this lamp via CL. I wanted something that would give me enough light to see by in the middle of the night, but wouldn't totally freak out my senses! I may still get a dimmer bulb for it.

We really lucked out in terms of furniture and supplies.  The crib came from Jacob's brother, who used it for his two kids.  The dresser and chest we had already in our "guest room" (both came from Jacob's family as well).  The shelves also came from Jacob's folks.  The glider and lamp were both Criagslist finds, and the shelving unit came from Target.  We bought the crib mattress and changing table pad at Babies R Us, and the shaggy rug at Target.  The curtains and cushions are home made.  I'm very happy with how it all turned out... and looking forward to seeing what is going to be needing to be changed to make it a bit more "functional" (I'm sure there will be surprises that I haven't even thought about yet! lol).
Just a little over 3 weeks to go! =)

I love your sweet nursery. And you will be happy if you have another and it's a boy that you didn't do everything pink. I actually found that a regular nightlight near the changing table was as much light as I needed. But then again you get pretty good at doing stuff in the middle of the night half asleep, so the amount of light really doesn't matter. :)
