Well, I must say I have a new favorite room in our house.
Our sweet little man's nursery is officially ready for his arrival. :) It's exactly what I imagined in my head- sweet, calming, and happy. I know it sounds silly for a room to be happy, but it really is. This room wouldn't be what it is without my amazingly talented mom.
While working full time, my wonderful mother made these beautiful, gorgeous drapes, and amazingly beautiful crib skirt. We wouldn't have been able to afford these items if it weren't for my mom's talented and generous self. She gave so much of her time and energy and I am so, so grateful and thankful for her. :)
I wish the lighting was a little better but it's more true to life with the flash off so I kept it off. The changing table and crib are Legacy and were a sweet hand-me-down from my cousin Katie. Her two sweet kiddos are 7 and 5 and she was ready to part with them so I gladly welcomed them into our nursery. They are beautiful & extremely well made.
We ordered the fabric for the bedding from Carousel Designs. With my mom's help, I was able to design everything and it is even more custom made than I could have ordered on the website.
The shelves and frames are from Ikea and I made his little name banner out of burlap and extra fabric from the bedding.
The rocker/recliner was ordered from Amazon. I tested it out at Babies R Us but it was much cheaper online and there was free shipping. It is The Rockabye Glider and you can find it here. The prints in the frames were free printables that I found on Pinterest. The large frame in the middle has ABC cards and the one to the right says "I am a Child of God". In the small frame I have yet to put a picture from our maternity photo shoot but that's what's going in there. :) I have had the G for a long time and got it on sale at Pier One. The lamp base is from Target and the shade is World Market.
I can't WAIT for my precious man to come home from the hospital so he can come home to this room. I have been having my quiet times in here and just praying that God would bless our son and his life. I'm so excited to see his sweet little face and so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with his life.
