The Nursery Chronicles...Part 2

Friday, January 6, 2012

I kept my word!! It's been quite awhile since I have updated about the nursery progress...don't fret, just because I took a sabbatical doesn't mean we've halted in any sense of the word--little miss will be here in just over 2 months so I am diligently trying to get things knocked out little by little as not to overwhelm myself near the end. You can take a look at our initial "nursery inspiration" post here.
Our contractor completed the home improvements and I am so pleased with the end result...gorgeous 4' high white painted beadboard coupled with built-in closet shelving for the utmost of baby organization, and of course, the furniture.
Here is where the nursery currently stands:
daddy jeff taping to prime the walls--see, he does love pink
 as you walk into the space...the walls are now primed and ready to paint!
a shot of the crib...more detailed shots to come once we have the bedding 
 the dresser/changing table
the side nook...we've got our contractor coming back to
install a built-in bookcase very soon!
 someone's brand new hamper
 a sampling of some of the pieces to adorn the walls
my favorite part...caroline's closet! 
 this child is going to be dressed to impressed...
Mimi and I may have gone a little overboard already ;)
custom clothing dividers were a must 
 
I am in LOVE with the crib and the dresser--classicly chic with a hint of glamour. I am still waiting for the bedding to arrive and then painting the walls will commence--Jeff is ecstatic about a blush pink room for his little princess ;).  
After that, we'll be decorating with all sorts of fun new decor and I'll be assembling a gallery wall with frames, printed quotes, art, mirrors, and such to "cozy up" the room. Other odds and ends on my plate:
  • Buy window treatments--maybe a pattern if I find the right one!
  • Install floor rug
  • Insert upholstered chair--just waiting on the custom piece to be delivered
  • Buy a moveable ottoman/pouf for the floor
  • Find and install a mobile for the crib
  • Organize all of the little one's necessities {oh how I heart organizing!}
So there you have it. Progress made indeed, yet still so much to accomplish in a short amount of time so we'll be adding little details here and there until I can reveal the final nursery, hopefully by mid-to-late February. Hope you all enjoyed this little peak into Caroline's boudoir.

  7. I love it!!! Especially her dresser and crib! I'm sure you've already walked in there a thousand times and daydreamed about having her actually in her room --- it's surreal when it happens!

    And I'm with you - love me some organization! Everyone said that Jackson's room couldn't possibly stay as organized as I'd had it originally, but it really has. Granted, he's not mobile YET, so that plays a big part! Haha! My advice - stock up on as many coordinating baskets / boxes / whatever you can to hide baby gear, toys, etc. The built-in bench that we have in Jackson's closet (I found seagrass baskets at Ikea and had the bench built to fit those) have been so, so awesome!

    I cannot WAIT to see Ms. Caroline in her gorgeous room. She's one lucky lady already!!!!!!

    Great work, friend!

  8. LOVE!! I bought the same closet organizers! I'm trying to find a pouf too, but it's hard to find one with my colors. Good luck!

  9. I think I spied "babywise" in your closet. Loved the book! and it worked like a charm with both my kiddies (toddler boy and 3 month old girl) and there were never any worries of failure to thrive or the such and both were off the charts in growth (just throwing that out there because I know some of the debates about it). Happy sleeping!!! :)
