The Nursery

the nursery

Well, the nursery is officially done!  

I thought it would be finished months ago but I took my time picking-out everything and making sure the end result would be a peaceful, cozy, comfortable nursery for our little girl. :)   A little about the room…   it’s ‘L’ shaped with slanted ceilings on the right-side so it was challenging to work with but once we got the bigger items in there (dresser + crib), we were able to figure out what could fit where.  And as for the colors and themes, we stuck with soft colors including lots of gray and touches of pinks and went with animal themed with a focus on cute, ‘lil elephants.  



I saw the ‘wall library’ on Pinterest and knew it’d be perfect for the nursery.  It was also really easy & fun to fill up since my baby-shower invites asked the guests to bring a signed children’s book in lieu of a card.

The dresser is large enough to hold a ton of clothing, blankets, accessories and also serve as a changing table.

Right now the closet is full of random stuff (books, toys, extra diapers, etc.) but I’ll eventually stop over at the Container Store and find a better way to organize it (or so I say ;)).

 Lastly, I’m planning on adding a few more small touches, such as framed newborn pictures and some more elephant inspired items to the room but for now, the nursery is finished.  And in only a few short weeks I’ll be able to show it to my little girl!
