Where She Will Lay

I have had a lot of fun doing her nursery. One of the first household projects I have loved working on. I was so excited, that her nursery is almost done minus a few details and I will be sharing her room today 🙂 Her room is { in my opinion } awesome ! It it the best room in the house and with professional photos I feel could be in a magazine hehe ! I really wish I had this taste when decorating our bed room.

The nursery is a very very small room, but how much do you REALLY need for a new born and even a toddler? This is what the room looked like when we moved into our house in 2011.

The first thing we decided to do was take up the carpet and do any painting we needed. We had already decided that we were going to be laying down a laminate flooring to help eliminate dog hair in the babies room. First the painting was going to take place. I am not a huge pink person or any ‘baby’ color for that matter so I already had in mind the nursery was going to stay neutral. Neutral is easy and can stay the same for a while. I decided to make an accent wall to add personality to the room. I was not sure if I was going to do wall paper, or deal with a stencil. I truly dislike tedious work because my career is VERY tedious, I don’t need any more of it in my life. In the long run, using a stencil was the best decision for us, so I found my favorite stencil and painted away. My husband helped with placement and I did the painting. It turned out great and I LOVE IT !

The floors also turned out nice. we ripped out the carpet and placed them ourselves. Much easier than I thought. When we were picking them out I wasn’t a huge fan of them, but they went with the furniture, the wall paint and the price was great. Once we laid them down and finished, I was very happy with them.

The furniture arrived just as we finished the floors. Perfect timing ! We put each piece together ourselves. It was time consuming and slightly aggravating but in the end, it turned out great. Here is a ‘tour’ { HA! } of her room with the furniture. IMG_0968

Still awaiting on a small accent table to come in. The lamp was purchased awhile ago but it is just another perfect piece to the room !

Small but GREAT…. I am so happy with how things turned out. Now I am just anxious to get the decorations and details. Our color accent is a VERY light pink. I have ordered a monogram { I am obsessed with monograms } for above the dresser / changing table. I am a huge fan of etsy and I have actually ordered a few monograms through this etsy shop called League of Letters. While the shipping does take a lengthy bit of time { which you are warned about in the purchasing process } the work is great . It will look a little something like this . . . EXCEPT with her initials which are S. L. G.

I am also waiting on her quilt for her bed. We did not go with the traditional ‘bed in the bag’ for her nursery. I am doing a sheet and a quilt and that’s it. Simple ! The quilt was also purchased on etsy through a shop called Designs by Daffy.

I am so happy with how things are turning out and can only hope the rest of the nursery falls into place when Baby S arrives.

Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend !
