Nursery Reveal!

After weeks and and weeks of working on this room, it's about finished! 
We still have a few projects we'd like to complete in here over time, but it's definitely ready for our baby girl to come home to enjoy!

Here's my "inspiration" post I wrote over the summer where I shared a few of my ideas. I think I achieved what I wanted and had in mind! I find myself just hanging out in here. It's definitely my favorite room in our house! Then again, it's also the only room in the new house that we've painted and decorated since moving in last June. Everything else got put on hold!

Anyhow....here it is! I'll do my best to post links to where things came from. If there's something you're curious about, please feel free to comment or email me and I'll do my best to answer!

Before you walk in the door...

Right now it reads "it's a girl," but I'll probably change it to her name once she's here! Well....and once she has a name. Still not 100% set on one.

When you are standing in the doorway, here's what you see...

I just love the bumpers that my mother in law made for her crib. I really stressed about finding the right fabric for them, and I'm so happy with the final product. We also love her crib. I had the same style crib, but mine was brown, as a baby.

All her bows! Some were gifts, I've also purchased a lot from here.

All the books we put on display on her shelves are books that are special to us.
In fact, I've even added a few since I took these pictures!
I had to include a few Olivia books and some by one of my favorite children's authors, Mo Willems!
The teddy bear was J's growing up and the pink doll was mine.

This dresser was such a labor of love....I don't even know how many hours I put into refinishing this thing. But I love the final product! There will be a long post to come with step by step directions!

Her closet...still has lots of room in it. I'm sure we'll fill it quickly!

The paper mobile! I spent a full weekend making this. I plan to do a tutorial....hopefully before her arrival!

Things I'd still like to do in her room: Bookshelves behind the glider and some artwork with her name or monogram. Hopefully the name artwork can get done once she has name, and the bookshelves can wait a little while since she won't be big enough to get books off a shelf for awhile. Right now her books are hanging out in baskets.
