Nursery Sneak Peek

Can I just tell you that I am loving how Emma's nursery is coming together. We have been so blessed to have been helped every step of the way by our friends. From painting to closet organizing to the donation of the free crib and changing table. . . the end result has actually been as cost-efficient as it has been adorable.
It isn't done yet. There are still small, but very important details, that are going to make the room look even better that still need to be attended to.

Here, however, are some pictures showing our progress. First, the wall colors. One of the finishing touches that still needs to be done is the white chair rail that will separate the two colors.

I have been collecting fun little pieces of the nursery since we decided on a color theme. Here is a fun pillow and a basket that will sit next to my glider and hold books, nursing pads, etc.Here is the changing table and cover. Pretty basic, but I love that both were handmedowns and match perfectly!

And the crib. . . oh, my friends, the crib. This bedding was the color inspiration for all of it. I have since really focused on upping the raspberry color in the room. The curtains, rug, and a lot of fun little accessories (even a raspberry piggy bank!) are all in that color. I just painted raspberry colored squares on the wall above the crib last night and we'll be mounting white metal plaques above that.

We also recently found a used glider on craigslist and of course, there is the craigslist book shelf, which I can't wait to take pictures of and show you once I've set it all up. I have put it next to the changing table and will use the top two shelves for diapers and other necessities, and the bottom two shelves for books and stuffed animals.

I have to be sure to say, once again, that I have had a lot of help with this nursery from the very beginning. That is part of what makes me love this room so very much. It is truly a compilation of my friends and their amazing talents and love for our little girl. It makes me feel so supported to have them there for me. I only hope that I give them back the same type of love and selfless support.

It's all so adorably girly! I kind of want the same color scheme for my own room. :)

That crib is simply beautiful for a hand-me-down! Seriously! The nursery looks great, I love it! I am SURE that decorating a boy's nursery is fun, too, but I must confess that I always feel like moms who don't get the "girl" experience get a bit gypped in the the whole decorating the nursery part... the frills and pink and girly is OH SO FUN! Glad you've enjoyed it so much!

The colors must be even more stunning in person! They look great in these photos and I find that it's HARD to get paint colors to show up well in photos (know what I mean?!)

Yes, we need a belly shot, too. Try to get a couple of Will with your belly - I cherish those of Lil Pumpkin kissing my Peanut in utero.
