The nursery!

Before I got pregnant, I dreamed of designing a nursery for my future baby! Then it was finally time do that and I have struggled making decisions and figuring out what exactly I want to do! But Preslee's nursery is coming right along! I finally was able to make some decisions!

First, I chose the crib and bedding! Those are the only two things that have come in, and I love them both!! The simple modern bedding is exactly what I wanted. I plan to bring in some pinks with the accessories!


This is a pic of the bedding but in Christina Applegate's nursery! I love how clean and simple it looks!

This past weekend, I found this dresser and along with a matching nightstand that had feet, similar to the crib so I went ahead and ordered those along with the glider! The glider color is about the same color as the bed skirt (taupe/gray).
I had a hard time with gliders because I really wanted a super modern one but they are so dang expensive!! I ended up choosing this one because it was a much more reasonable price and still had a little modern style too it. (This is the glider just not the same fabric.)
My uncle and Papaw are also building me a armoire! The room we are using is an office and it actually doesn't have a closet so the piece they are making will have double hanging rods and a big drawer at the bottom. They are almost done with it and I can't wait to go to Tennessee in September and pick it up!

I am going to use the extra hall closet right beside her room for extra stuff. Also, I think that Matt's grandpa is going to make her a bench for a window seat/toy storage! I thought the bench with baskets in the is a cute idea and would be more storage for toys and books! I plan on making it really cute with pillows and pink baskets!
Now the hardest part is finding stuff for the walls! I am getting the room painted a darker taupe color (similar to the bedding) and I just can't decided how and what I am going to accessorize!

So that is all I have for now... I am hoping to get the nursery finished by October so I can enjoy putting away her things after my showers and so it will be perfect for our princess whenever she decides to arrive!

hey julie, love what you have picked out for your little one. i have been looking at gliders as well and have found them to be extremely expensive, to much for me to pay for baby #2. anyway where did you buy yours from? what brand? if its more reasonable then what you have been looking at i would love to look into it. just email me if you can.

Hey Julee I love all of your nursery items you have picked. I am 4 weeks behind you with my second child, but first girl. I am also looking for a glider and they are so expensive. Where did you end up finding yours?

Maybe some cute vinyl decals from Uppercase Living? That's what we did in my son's room
