DC - love your nursery! And I'm so impressed with the closet - so organized! I love all the little pink clothes - they are so cute! I'm glad I'm not the only one whose soon-to-be-born child has a big wardrobe ;))

Sarah - oh, I am so bad at decorating. I think you could definitely accessorize with neutrals like taupe or beige, if you want to tone it down, but I'm no good at figuring out exactly what!

Anyway, here are photos of my son's nursery!

First, crib with wall decal. And my stuffed dog Beauregard hanging out.
Image

Crib bedding with breathable bumper. And more Beauregard.
Image

Dresser with changing table. There is actually a piece of orange gingham oil cloth on the top of the dresser, which I know is so old lady-ish, but I couldn't stand the thought of accidentally leaving a wipe on the surface at night and ruining my nice cherry dresser! The space above the dresser is saved for the quilt my mom is making.
Image

My La-Z-Boy chair...so comfortable. Blanket on the back I knit myself. And the wall hanging my mom made for the year of the rabbit.
Image

And the other side of the room - stuffed animal bin, hamper, and diaper pail.

Basil - I LOVE your nursery! Can I ask where you got your nursery furniture? This is exactly what DH and I are looking for, it is just gorgeous!

Cute nurseries Tao, DC, and Basil!! :appl:

Basil - does your animal bin stand up well when empty? I was thinking of getting one of those for dirty clothes but it looks like it would collapse without any clothes in it.

Brown_eyes - Thanks! The crib, dresser, and nightstand are from Room & Board. The dresser and nightstand are regular adult furniture so we will buy a matching twin or full size bed when he outgrows the crib.

Kunzite - thanks! Well, the canvas is pretty stiff so it doesn't collapse and fall on the floor. Mine doesn't really hold a round shape though since it is still creased from shipping. I don't know how it will look after it smooths out. Right now all that is in it is a Boppy, so it's not that full.

Awww, so sweet, inhisarms! My daughter found out she is having a girl, but we were looking at nautical themes if it had been a boy! I love how you did the closet. Her nursery has a smaller closet and I really think redoing it with an organizer would give her so much more space. I'll have to send her this link!
When in doubt....don't.

giving this thread a bump so it doesn't get lost (and perhaps to inspire some more ladies to post their nurseries).

IHA and Basil -
Those are LOVELY! IHA - I wanted to do nautical for our "boy" but since our LO has proven to be a lady, i have not found a nautical them i liked since.

Beautiful nursery Modern! :appl: And what a closet Ms. Stella has! :love:
Re: Baby Nurseries!

Post by charbie » August 17th, 2011, 3:41 pm
Its too cute, Modern! I love that mobile and all those cute little touches.

Ours has that same butterfly but not too matchy feel as well, with green accents...but once I post pics (after its done!) you'll see its a lot different. But I love that we have similar tastes :)
Re: Baby Nurseries!

Post by modernsparkler » August 17th, 2011, 10:51 pm
Thanks Imperfect! She has more clothes than I do.

Charbie: I thought we might have similar tastes. Can't wait to see your pics. Good luck with the next few weeks ! You are so close.

These are beautiful nurseries!! I love Modern’s butterfly mobile, too! I’m 8 weeks and we’re starting to get our nursery ready. I’ve already looked at tons of nursery decor online and feel like I want everything! Of course, we don’t know whether it’s a boy or a girl – but thank you all for posting your nursery pics! They’re all so adorable!

There are some very nice nurseries in this thread! You all have done a great job!
Here is my daughter's room. It is also a combo with our guest room. She is baby #3 and her room is large enough that we can keep the guest bed in there and we need it. When guests visit she sleeps in a pack 'n play in our walk-in master closet. Who would think a 4 bedroom house would ever feel small? With 3 kids, it does!

Her bedding was custom made 6 years ago for her older sister. I made the letters myself and also the picture board above the glider:
Image

I got new bedding for the bed to match the nursery decor and made the paintings myself, with inspiration from etsy paintings I'd seen:
Image
To the right of the bed is a frame I embellished with an enlargement of her birth announcement.

I've been addicted to pinterest lately so I made the button monogram and the handprint ballet canvas painting last week. I plan to get some sort of low/wide-ish bookcase/cubby thing here for toys at some point. The pictures in the "first year" frame are of big sister- keep forgetting to change them out :) :
Image

I made the small picture over the shelf above the changing table, the bows and bow holders were gifts and she shares some of the bows with big sis:
Image

Looking into the room:

NFO, great looking nursery. What an efficient use of the room as a double up guest bedroom. I love your personal touches.
Re: Baby Nurseries!

Post by NewEnglandLady » August 30th, 2011, 11:03 am
NFO, Lauren's nursery is absolutely adorable! The idea of combining the guest room with the nursery is brilliant! I can understand 4 bedrooms being small. We bought a 4-bedroom house thinking we'd have no more than 2 kids, but I hadn't thought of this option just in case we want a third. It looks gorgeous and I don't think space will be an issue for you, even when guests do come. Congrats on #3!
Re: Baby Nurseries!

NFO: love the paintings you have over the guest bed that you made! Looking for something like that for DD's big girl bed - been thinking of PBK floral ones but yours are much more original! What inspired you on etsy?

Our nursery is almost complete and I love it - will post photos once I get some thing on the walls (waiting until we decide on a name!).
Re: Baby Nurseries!

janinegirly,
I just searched "nursery art owl" and "nursery art birds" and looked through all of the results. I would find elements of what I wanted in a bunch of different ones- an owl here, a tree there. I used canvases and painted them pink. then I painted on the trees. Then I used scrapbook paper in different designs and assembled the owls and chicks and then glued them on. If I did it again I would use the flat canvas boards because I had a very hard time working with the traditional stretched canvases- they had too much "give" in terms of gluing on the owls and birds and made it a lot more work than it had to be (wouldn't dry flat). It's not hard to do at all and it's fun to do something one of a kind too. Try it! And it's cheap!
Re: Baby Nurseries!

Post by janinegirly » August 31st, 2011, 12:58 pm
Thanks NFOwife! Where did you buy the supplies..Michaels or something similar? Did you sketch the owls/birds on scrapbook paperI am normally not very crafty AT ALL, but recently made some animal pillow pals (also inspired from Etsy) and they came out well..I was so proud!
Love the lights you got as well (flanking the bed) - where'd you find those? Thanks for sharing, I love the feel and combo idea! :).
