Nursery Update

I have been hard at work on the nursery for the past few weeks and I'm so excited to finally share some pictures with you.  It is not completely finished yet and we are still lacking some personal touches and art work but I still can't believe how far it's come in the past few weeks.

We moved into our house in February and probably had the crib set up the first few weeks of March but the nursery sat pretty empty like this until late April.

 
Now it looks like this...
 
 



I'm not sure if I will be keeping the bookcase in the corner or not- I'm considering adding picture frame shelves to hold books on that wall behind the rocker to add some dimension to that corner. 
What do you all think? 

Baby Boy H has so many clothes now!!


Here are some of my favorite items in the nursery:

The Orange Rocker:
I nabbed this orange rocker for $100 at a yard sale!  Once I knew we were having a boy I knew that gray and navy blue would be the nursery colors but I didn't know what accent color I would use. When I found this rocker I just feel in love- even though orange isn't usually a color I gravitate to I knew I had to have this for the nursery!  The price couldn't have been any better and it's completely comfortable. 

Jellycat Giraffe Stuffed Animal
This was one of the first gifts I received for Baby Boy H before we even knew he was a boy.  My sister gave me this for Christmas and I remember being so excited about it but still in shock that I was really having a baby.  It just didn't feel real back then.  I hope this is one of his favorite toys as he grows up. 

Baby Boy H's Dresser
This dresser is still a work in progress in my garage.  It belonged to my grandmother who passed away in 2006 and sat in her master bedroom for as long as I can remember.  I know she would be so happy to know that it was going into Baby Boy H's nursery.   
It's supposed to be a navy blue color and we are currently on paint coat #3 and I think we're going to need at least 4 if not 5 coats of paint!   It's proving to be more work than we planned but there is no going back now. 
The dresser will go on the one empty wall that I didn't show you.   

So that's my update so far!  I'm about 90% sure I know what I'm doing for artwork but I may change my mind- I know I need to make a decision soon since I have less than 7 weeks left.

  3. It looks great! I love the colors and that rocker! One thing I would suggest is maybe having a little side table next to the rocker, I have one next to mine and it's great for having a place to sit a bottle or book or my iPhone etc. while rocking Hunter. Also, high shelves for books is a good idea, we have bookcase and Hunter is always pulling all the books off of it, I kinda wish they were up higher out of his reach.

    If you don't mind me asking, where is your crib and the changing table dresser from? Is that the Ikea one? I need one that size for our nursery. Thanks girl!

  23. I'm a little behind on blog reading but I'm cracking up right now b/c our nurseries are going to look very similar! We have white furniture, including the dresser/changing table from Ikea and gray walls. We also have the same bedding from PBK but different colors...gray crib bumper & bed skirt with pink & white polka dot fitted sheets. We also have the same changing pad cover in pink but it's on back order until August :( Love how everything looks!
