Okay, so I've been thinking about this a lot and looking online a lot! But I think I finally have some direction.
I had an idea of what I wanted, but couldn't quite pin it down. But then I saw these two nurseries, and knew that I wanted something similar.
So I totally stole these pictures off someone else's blog. I don't actually know this girl. Lately I have taken to clicking on random links in hopes of finding blogs of pregnant people. That way I can see their nurseries, check out what baby products they are buying, and console myself with other pregnant people gaining weight also!
I absolutely adore how simple this nursery is. It is calm and beautiful, exactly what I want! I love the little shelf holding the day gowns! I plan on checking out Lowes soon to see if I can find an unfinished one to paint.
This bedding is Pom Pom at Home, which I adore. The problem is, it's pretty expensive, at least more than I want to pay. But I love the look!
This next nursery is off of a design blog.
I love the look of no bumpers. This is a Jenny Lind crib, so our crib will look really similar. I like the few patterns and the calm colors. I wish we could paint our walls a blue!
They have a little shelf as well. I just love those! Doesn't this room feel so calm?
So now onto my plans:
We are going to use brown and blue as the colors. We will move a printed brown armchair from the living room up to the nursery. I want to get this changing pad (or one like it) to bring more brown into the room.
I am going to order this fabric for a pleated crib skirt. I also might use it for a pillow in the crib. I want to do just plain white sheets. And I want one or two white pillows, maybe with his monogram on one of them.
This is the crib, which hopefully will be here in the next week or two. I am hoping we don't have to keep on those ugly black wheels! I know they would be useful, but they just aren't very cute!
Our changing table (which is already in the room and put together!). I want to find some sort of baskets to put on the shelves to hold his diapers and changing supplies. I have looked at Target and Lowes and don't love anything there. I need to check out Bed, Bath, and Beyond as well. Any suggestions?
We also are looking for a white dresser (or one that I can paint white). There was the perfect one listed on craigs list, but by the time I emailed, it was sold. So back to hunting. If I can't find the perfect one, than I guess I will settle for a storage/bookshelf sort of thing.
I like this Martha Stewart shelving unit. I could stick baskets in some of the cubes to hold his clothes and use some for books. So if I don't find the perfect dresser, I'll go for this.
Anyway, that's what I have so far! Thoughts/suggestions would be great!
