Sick or not, the nursery must move forward! I spent the morning still feeling uber sick – Dans hurting too, and Brody is still going with his fever. SO. That leaves me feeling frustrated and I want nothing but rainbows and unicorns floating around our house right now. I have a fuel to burn today to clean this house yet again head to toe. I told Dan that we need our house cleansed, maybe were cursed. Maybe we should just put it on the market already because there has got to be something wrong here!
I’m totally kidding. But I did throw out every single soap in our house and replaced them all – cloroxed for the 100x time this week and washing sheets again. Come on healthy bodies. WE NEED YOU!
So, onto the nursery. The most exciting room in our house right now. We just finished the accent wall (tutorial/pictures to come at the end of next week) and I wanted to show you what we have had delivered so far to fill up this space. Gosh, I am SO excited for this room. We’ve never really had a concentrated nursery space that we put time and money into. With Brody it was what we had tossed in a room, for Owen it was left overs. So, for this sweet babe I am longing a room that feels cohesive and will last him a few years until he is about 4 and demands super hero themed walls.
Here is a sneak peak of the pieces we have to put in the room 🙂
The room inspiration all started with our feature wall, the shiplap we will be revealing to you guys next week and it turned out 10x better than we ever could have hoped for! Channeling our inner Chip + JoJo. I knew I wanted something out of the ordinary, and since it is the smallest bedroom, I wanted the space to have more dimension. This shiplap wall was definitely the ticket.
The Babyletto crib I read great reviews on, and at a smidge over $300 we couldn’t beat the price and it was the exactly style of crib we were wanting. You can buy it here.
The nursery chair was a hot topic, mainly from my mouth. I could not decide between a rocker and a basic comfortable chair. Yes, a rocker would come in handy during those long nights, but once the kiddo is past 1 … well, what do we do with it? I wanted a chair that would last years and years and could transition to other rooms if need be. You can always count on Wayfair to give you the good stuff, we ordered this chair last week and I cannot wait to sink my cheeks into it. You can buy it here.
The dresser is a newbie that was ordered today. I knew I wanted something lighter, a bit rustic and charming all wrapped into one. Who the heck would have thought Walmart would be place to hold my dresser dreams?? For only $340 this lad will be at our house soon! You can buy it here.
The rug, oh that rug. It’s sold out currently on RUGSUSA. We ordered it on January 1, it’s the same rug (different color) that we have in our family room and we adore it. SO comfortable you guys! unfortunately, its back ordered and will not be at our door step until the end of this month, at best. BUT, I just couldn’t cancel the order – we got it at 80% off and it was a total steal. You can find other colors to buy here.
Giant letter “X” because we do not want to reveal baby boy’s name just yet – but his letter is will be placed on the wall and start some of our wall decor off on the right foot. They are on sale, so snag yours at Land of Nod now!!
I also couldn’t avoid plopping these cloud crib sheets into my cart while shopping with Land of Nod. A delightful modern flare on what resembles the clouds on the wall in Toy Story, they were too cute to pass up. On sale, buy them here!
The curtains are TBD. I know we want blackout curtains, and navy … Pottery Barn has some great choices as does Wayfair, so we’ll see who wins that battle!
The wall color is silver streak, by Glidden. The most delightful shade of grey/blue. It fits the room perfectly, keeping it light and bright and giving the room just enough touch of color to make the walls stand out.
I cannot wait to see this room all set up and ready to go for the little man. I anticipate endless hours of feedings and playtime happening upstairs, and this room will be the perfect place to do so.
Baby “X” will have a room to enjoy for many many years 🙂
