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.
