The Nursery!

I realized that I hadn't yet posted pictures of the nursery. It is pretty much done, with the exception of a picture frame that needs my baby's prints and picture, and obviously it doesn't yet have the baby. Otherwise, it is done and I think we did a pretty good job. Jeff keeps asking me which room in the house we are doing next... I keep trying to convince him that we should do the living room next because I want new couches! Haha! But no, we will wait for a bit on that room until we save up some more money.

In this room we: repainted the walls, ripped up the carpet, sanded the wood floors, and refinished the wood floors and then pretty much everything else you see!

Looking into the nursery from the hallway. The rocking chair was my mom's and then mine when we were kids, and the rocking horse was mine. It is a tradition in my family that my grandparents gave all of the grandchildren rocking horses when they turned 1.:



The wall right inside the door. Jeff built the shelves the books are on. The toychest was mine when I was a kid. My dad built it. He repainted it for the nursery.



Here is a closer picture of the shelves.



The wall on the other side of the windows. We bought the dresser at a local Amish store and painted it. The one picture on the wall is one of our maternity pictures that I then made a background for and framed. The frame under it is waiting for our baby. :)




The crib wall. We bought a wall decal and put it on the wall. We *LOVE* it! We did a naturey, owl theme in the room, so the tree fit perfectly. We didn't want it to be owl overload, so we really only have a few in the room, but we brought in some nature as well and the tree, especially with the leaves the perfect colors of green and blue, complete the room!

Melissa- we got the owl lamp at Target from their website. We changed out the lampshade to match the room, but otherwise it was perfect!
