We’ve finally had time to finish up the nursery! Matt painted it way back in February, and we purchased some furniture shortly after, but until recently, we haven’t had a chance to put it together or do any decorating!
This past week I was able to sort through what we had previously kept in the room and do some organizing and decorating. And now – its complete! All we need is the baby!!
Since we don’t know the gender, we wanted to keep things neutral, and I love how it turned out! We went with tan linen fabric and white furniture, gray walls we brought in rustic elements which we have throughout our home.
Want to see some photos?!
We found the crib at a garage sale which started the white furniture trend. We purchased the dresser and night stand from Ikea and the rocking chair we had already in the house. Our neighbors bought us the awesome cushions for the rocking chair and it matches the curtains and crib skirt perfectly.
I couldn’t find curtains and bed linens that I liked (except for at Restoration Hardware – which is way too expensive!) so I purchased linen fabric at Joann’s and sewed some curtains and a crib skirt. I am not the best sewer, but I tried my best and I think they look okay!
We bought a big dresser because we have a small house with no closets, so the many drawers will come in handy. And with the changing pad, it becomes a changing table too!
The changing pad cover came from a sweet little ETSY shop called Fern Leslie Baby. I loved the grey and ivory stripe and it totally matches the linen fabric for the crib skirt and curtains!
We of course have lots of mason jars and crates in our house, so I incorporated those into the baby room “decor”. I made the sign (it still needs to be hung :)) but, it is painted on a grape crate I got awhile back and have just been waiting to make something with it!
On the other wall of the room, we will eventually put in a bench seat and a built-in possibly under the window, but for now, we just brought in our red flyer wagon and added some baskets for toys.
And that’s it! I’m so glad I was able to finish everything and do some decorating before baby arrives. Once we know if baby is a boy or girl, we will likely add in some more details (and maybe a custom baby name banner from our ETSY shop too! :))
