Since the old baby nursery thread is locked I figured I would start a new one.

You can browse through the faboulous nurseries in the old thread here: Baby Nurseries

ETA: Feel free to add your pictures even if they were in the old thread!


ETA2: I just noticed there was a second nurseries thread, which is also locked!...but here is the linky: Baby Nurseries 2

I'm still missing a few things but got MOST of it done!. Just missing a hamper, the glider (which should arrive in October) and the art above the cribs


Hope you guys like it!

Here is entering the room...the art on the left used to be in my hubby's nursery!!!. The little sign says "Why God made little boys". I love it, it's just so precious!!!. We also have the mobile that will go on top of the glider...which is SO CUTE! I am so glad his mom saved this stuff!

The art on top of the cribs will be a modern type art with their names, weight, date/time, etc...

with the night light on...I love that light! It''s perfect and love how it reflects on the sides...

The little birdhouse is something I made

and close up of the baby jails...I mean, the cribs!!!

So on the wall next to the closet I''ll have a hamper (in brown so it matches the glider that will go in the corner!).

And that''s it from me!


I am so relieved to have it ALL done!!!!!!!!! I''m getting to the point that I''m very very exhausted so it''s good to have it done and ready!. I shed a little tear when we were finished hanging the numbers

The best part is that the cost of this nursery (excluding the closets and the glider) is about $1,000!...I think that''s pretty good considering I needed to cribs, two sets of bedding, etc...
So I''m proud of myself and DH is thrilled!

I didn''t know there were old threads and was just thinking this wkd that I wished there was a Nurseries thread I could go peek through for ideas and also to post my own stuff when it''s coming along!! Thanks so much for starting this one Mand!

And your nursery is fabulousness!!! I absolutely love how modern chic it is! And very relaxing. Where did you get the artwork over the dresser if you don''t mind me asking? I love it!

Seeing your room makes me nostalgically miss our townhouse rooms which were so stark and clean like that, but on the plus side our new (smaller) house has all wood flooring which I am in love with. The rooms are smaller too though, boo!!!

Thanks Mara!!!

I would have loved to have hardwoord flooring in their room!!!. The nursery plans shifted once we knew it was twins. The "nursery" was originally going to be in a smaller room and this room used to be my office. Now guess who had to move her office to the small room?...this one!
...but I definitely needed the extra room for the boys!

The art above the dersser and teh numbers are from Etsy. I love Etsy! There are just so many cute things there!

The woodland critters series is from =tags&includes[]=title:2o8h065d]John Golden

I love all his stuff!. He has a robots series that I love....and I also love his "By order of management" series!

The numbers are from =tags&includes[]=title:2o8h065d]Art&Philanthropy I love all her stuff too...she has the cutest bird prints!

Mandarine I love your nursery! Love the understated effect - simple but still very "baby boy." You guys did a great job!

Thank you!

I wanted it calm, but not boring...and cute but not too baby-ish or theme-ish!...

DH says I had way too many ideas in me head...hehe

Mandarine, I had that same mobile when I was a baby too!!! I think my sister has it now. I wonder if i could find another one one eBay. That would be fun!

I love the nursery, Mandarine! I LOVE the wall art you chose. We don''t have kids, but I might just have to buy a few pieces anyway.
