Seriously, though, after months of searching, we finally found our crib and dresser/changing table! They are being delivered on Sunday evening, which means that it's time to stop fluffing around. We have to empty out the office this weekend. We figured this would be just the kick in the arse that we need to finally get things moving.
Here is the crib:
Here is the dresser:
But actually, it's in this slightly ligher color called caramel, because the nursery is a fairly small room.
And I have narrowed down my choices for nursery themes to two. I am actually going to set up a poll, so please vote on the following:
1) Clas.sic Po.oh.
I have long been into Clas.sic Pooh and always thought that this would be the nursery theme. In fact, when I was first pregnant two years ago, I fell in love with the set that Tar.get has since discontinued. This set is also from Tar.get, it's cute looking, but honestly feels a bit "cheap" as far as the fabric quality goes. But it's still adorable and I have some great ideas on how to accentuate it. It's also half the price as the other set that I like.
2) Moons and Stars
My all-time favorite children's book is "I Love You This Much," which has a scene in which the baby rabbit says to the big rabbit, "I love you all the way to the moon." The big rabbit says back, "I love you all the way to the moon and back." I have always loved this book and the loving sentiment that it has. So, I thought what could be greater than to recreate that feeling in a nursery. This set feels a bit nicer and I also have some really fun ideas for this one, including some moon and stars artwork and stenciling.
I am really torn and can't decide. Please help by voting! Either way, I think we are going with a nice yellow color for the walls, once again, to keep the nursery feeling a bit brighter and more open to compensate for the small size of the room.
And for those of you picking that they are both ugly, please leave some suggestions in the comments. That way, I can get some other ideas.
