I spent countless hours planning for and getting Kate's nursery ready for her arrival. I wanted it to be perfect - my dream nursery - and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
I wanted it to be super girly with a neutral color scheme and a hint of pink. When I had my husband hang the chandelier I asked if he liked it and he said "it's pretty girly". I immediately replied "oh good, that's what I'm going for!"
I found the curtains at Target. I considered making some but it's much cheaper to buy curtains than to buy that much fabric.
The glider was also from Target. I always try to have a picture of Christ in my childrens' rooms an I found the perfect one at Seagull Book & Tape that went right along with the color scheme I was going for.
I got the chandelier and framed mirror at IKEA. You seriously cannot beat the price and the chandelier is the perfect touch - I'm in love with it. I got the changing table at D&B Woods on Center Street in Provo and we had it stained to match the crib. I made the changing table pad cover.
I love the custom closets in our house - it really saved us in this room. Although I wanted it to look 100% like a nursery, it was our only remaining guest room a few weeks prior and I still have to store some stuff in there. With the help of the custom closet, there is plenty of space to store everything with room to spare.
I got both bookshelves at Target. I love to fill the shelves with pictures and toys and not just books when I can because I think it adds a lot to the room and keeps things interesting. I filled both shelves with pictures of Kate's family, pictures of her mom, dad and sister as a baby, and a maternity picture from right before I had her. I filled the fabric bins with bath stuff, bibs, toys and burp cloths.
It's my dream nursery - just what I wanted. It took a while to put together but it was worth it.
