Before the holidays, we got down to business and really began to concentrate on bringing "my vision" to life. We spent a few hours furniture shopping one afternoon, and quickly agreed on something we both liked. By the time you get to number three it's amazing how quickly this process gets streamlined. We ordered the Hanley line from Westwood Furniture in the color Cloud.
We originally were told it was backordered until the end of February (which meant 3.0 was most definitely going to be furniture-less for a few weeks), but were pleasantly surprised when we received a call to tell us it arrived early. Wahoo!
Mr. Cute also got his carpentry skills on, and enlisted the help of my father in law to help do the new bead board, trim, and baseboards for the room.
Cute joined the project as head supervisor.
They worked through the better part of the day, and I love how it turned out! It gives the room a little something besides just that plain boxy look.
While the boys were building, I found some bedding that I liked. We are going with a grey/white/pink theme, and since the room is somewhat small I wanted something light and frilly. I had seen this seersucker style crib skirt paired with a ruffle bumper at Pottery Barn Kids. I love all things seersucker and knew it would be perfect! My plan is to have pink seersucker pillows made with her monogram to coordinate.
I lucked out when my mom and sister found the exact bedding I had on my wish list from PBK outlet for slightly less. I was so excited!
I was also pleasantly surprised when Mr. Cute found the most perfect shabby chic chandelier for her room! This wasn't a priority item on my list this late in the game, but I was am so excited to add this girly touch to it!
It goes with the theme perfectly, and has just enough bling to satisfy my southern loving heart.
Everything is coming together, and this week and upcoming weekend we plan on knocking out some of the larger items on the list. Mr Cute is working on the bookshelves he is building, I plan on narrowing down paint colors, and getting my mind around one of the more fun parts...organizing her closet! :)
3.0 NURSERY CHECKLIST
- Somewhat neutral in color, but not afraid of color pops.
(Hopefully picking out paint colors this week!)
- A large monogram.
- Some sort of built-ins and wall trim to break up the boxy feel. (In progress)
- A comfy glider.
- A closet shelving makeover.
(Goodbye single wire shelf that builders tend to love to install. Buh-bye!)
Which will come first, the baby or the nursery??
