Here’s the room. It’s directly across the hall from our room (maybe three steps). I’ll get you some better before pictures.
Here’s what I know:
The wall color is going to be the green (it’s actually a shade lighter than that but I couldn’t find the actual color). And the ceiling is going to be pale blue. I’m going to use the Jenny Lind crib that I used when I was a baby, but there may be a color change. I haven’t decided. The bedding is going to be exactly like the picture. It’s Pottery Barn’s Scallop Pique Nursery Bedding. Simple and classic. I love it.
The big impact is going to be a accent wall with a fabric tree. I am so excited about this. I love all the different colors and patterns on the leaves.
My husband’s family is giving us an upholstered glider and I’m so excited about it. It’s similar in style to the one above but I’ll need to get a new slipcover for it, but I haven’t even started looking at which one.
I’m hoping to pick up this dresser this weekend. I love the details of the dental molding and the sides. This will be the changing table/storage in the nursery:
Obviously, there will be some painting to be done to it and probably some new pulls, but for $50 I get the dresser, mirror and side table (which will probably go next to the glider).
My goal is to have the big elements done by Thanksgiving, so that’s painting, the tree, dresser, crib and glider. That way I can enjoy the holidays and not really stress about finishing things up until January.
Here’s the to-do list:
- Repair the walls from previous wallpaper removal
- Paint the walls and ceiling
- Replace the fan
- Buy/paint dresser and night stand
- Paint crib??? Maybe, maybe not.
- Hang curtains
- Make fabric tree decal
- Hang artwork and mirror
- Purchase slipcover for glider
- Reupholster ottoman.
