I have a confession to make. I've been holding out on you. Baby M's nursery has been done for a while. It's been ready to show off, but I just took photos over the weekend.
I won't make you wait any longer. Enjoy!
If you remember way back before Gene was born, this was his nursery, too. In fact, the walls are still the same color. I love this shade of aqua. The beauty of it is that it goes well with nearly every other color in the rainbow. As you can see, though, I finally settled on using pink as an accent color.
The dresser doubles as a changing table, complete with a contoured changing pad cover I sewed myself. The pink afghan on the back of the glider was made by a family friend. It's purely a coincidence that it matches Baby M's room so well!
Above the changing table is some decor that may move. The embroidery hoops are both craft projects I did. The frame and M are both things I painted white to go with the room. I have something to go in the white frame, but it has Baby M's name on it, so you can't see it yet!
Here's the other side of the room. Look at all of those hair bows! These make me so happy! I made the bow holder. It's a basic frame made from 1x2s with chicken wire attached to the back.
Here's a great view of her crib (complete with white and gray chevron sheets) and cube storage. When Gene had this room he had a second dresser in this spot. He has one dresser in his room and Baby M has the other, so we needed something here. The canvas bins hold burp cloths, swaddle blankets, and misc. baby care items. It actually works out well for the space because it's not as deep as the dresser was.
Here is a breakdown of where we purchased a lot of the items in the room:
Curtains -- Eclipse Kids Quinn Energy-Efficient curtains (light pink)
Crib -- Delta Eclipse convertible crib
Cube storage -- ClosetMaid Cubeicals 6 cube organizer
Canvas bins -- ClosetMaid Cubeicals fabric drawer
Lamp -- Knubbig Table lamp
Crib sheet -- Circo Chevron fitted crib sheet
Dresser -- Malm 3-drawer chest (black-brown)
Changing pad -- yard sale, similar to this
Glider -- From Gene's nursery, Similar to this chair
