The Nursery!

Ok the nursery is pretty much finished. The walls are a very pale pink, they look a little darker in the photos. Paul is the master photographer, not me and I didn't want to interrupt him cleaning the kitchen for me:) We are waiting on one bookshelf but you can get the general idea......




The chandelier has pretty clear and pink crystals hanging from it.






Paul and I made this for her room:)




Olivia's crib





her closet

her clothes:)



don't mind the pile in the corner, those are just donations that didn't fit and will be mailed to another traveling family! I also haven't figured out what I really want on the shelf.


and in this corner you can imagine this........

except I am not paying $399 at Pottery Barn for it. A friend of ours is making it for Olivia!



Everything is ready for you baby girl! We can't wait to bring you home to your beautiful new room!

so cute! our little zoe is still sleeping in our room so i am pretending i am still coming up with my great design for her room--at least it will be better than a wall in the middle of mom and dad's messy room, right???

LOVE your nursery. I am just starting on our one for the little miss, while we're on the waitlist! Pottery Barn....love it. I am drooling over the Brooke bedding set right now, trying to see if I can make something similar. Your room looks fantastic!

You have such a beautiful family! I can only imagine how anxious you are right now.

Do you mind if I ask where the chandelier is from? Love it!

Cute nursery! We used birds and green in Elise's room. Then went back and added pink accessories when we found out we were getting a girl. I love artwork you guys made; it's nice to make something for your daughter. It will be special.

WOW! I love the bedding and everything that you did! When you have a moment (which may not be for 2 yrs and that is okay), I would love to know where you got your crib bedding set.
