The drapes are hanging up for now, but no worries. They’ll be ebayed shortly. The curtain rod is also a silver color so I’m(or Jim) going to spray paint it gold.
This is the one piece of furniture that is staying in her nursery. It will be a nice ledge to put the monitor on and I hope to have a fun gallery wall hanging above it!
You can see my(and Abigail’s) paint swatch considerations. I *think* I have settled on which white I want to use for the walls but I’m still considering before I buy any. Man! White is super tricky. Almost harder than gray. I’m leaning towards Behr Ultra Pure White(color matched and mixed in el cheapo paint of course)
Abigail is really leaning toward the dark blue option for Mabel’s room 😉
This is the only “non Mabel” item left in the room. We don’t have space for it anywhere else in the house so it’s going to take a brief tour of the attic. I’m waiting to put it up because Abigail does still play with it and then I think I’ll bring it back down for Christmas because Mabel will be 7ish months old then 🙂
If you’ve been following along on Pinterest and my inability to stop pinning things for her room, these are the things that I’ve come up with so far:
Jim is going to build a much more organized and efficient closet for me(her). He’s going to take out those awful white shelves and build some solid ones that I can put baskets in. For now at least, she isn’t going to have a dresser, so all of her things need to be able to fit in the closet. If we plan it correctly, it should be pretty easy to do.
I bought this rug a while back when we though we were going to be moving. We ended up not moving after all and this rug has just sat up in the attic ever since. It’s the biggest size (7×10) so it will cover up most of the skanky carpet in her room. Perfecto.
This is Abigail’s nursery! I did everything “gender neutral” because I thought I was going to be using this nursery for back to back babies. Things didn’t work out that way, but it’s okay because her big girl room is pretty awesome(I guess I should do a post about that someday?) Anyway, this is the crib we have. It’s currently living at my in-laws because my sweetest mother in law in the world didn’t want me to have to sell my crib when I was selling everything else. Obviously, I was having a hard time parting with some things and she totally recognized that without me ever having to say a thing. So, ME gets to use the same crib Miss A did with one big change. We’re going to paint it! With the white walls of the nursery I wanted to do something really fun. So, the color of the dresser above is going to be the new crib color. Eep!
This is the rocking chair I have picked out! My champagne taste is totally jonesing for a PBK rocker, but since I don’t want to take out a loan to buy a chair, this Target rocker for half the price will suit my tastes well enough 🙂 Now I only need to start accumulating gift cards for this bad boy. I think it will be perfect in her room.
And that pretty much covers the big plans for her nursery. Everything else will be small details that I hope to DIY or thrift to help pull it all together. To get an idea for those things(garlands, bunting, quilts, printables, ottomans, blankets, and more) be sure to follow my Pinterest page!
What do you think of my ideas for Mabel’s nursery? What would you add? Also, if you have a white paint recommendation, I’m all ears!
