Thanks so much, ladies! We really enjoy the space, too.

Dani, the dresser is great, isn't it?! I went through the old PS nursery threads last night to admire everyone's sweet spaces, and it seems like a popular dresser among PS moms! We have some Hemnes furniture in our bedroom in grey/brown and looked at TONS of baby furniture before realizing we really loved the Hemnes style.

LV, this is the only 'put-together' room in my house. I'd describe the rest of my space as livable but not stylish or coordianted :cheeky: So consider that before inquiring about my design skills!! You'll end up with a bunch of mis-matched furniture bought second hand, otherwise, 'cause that's how I'd describe my overall style :sick:

Rug: From Home Depot, of all places! It's called Simpatico and is made by Mohawk. It was super affordable and is nice for a kid's room... I won't flip out if it gets dirty or stained, because we didn't spend a fortune! http://www.homedepot.com/buy/flooring-area-rugs-mats-area-rugs-contemporary/mohawk-home-simpatico-biscuit-starch-5-ft-x-7-ft-area-rug-131724.html

Mobile: There are quite a few tutorials online for mobiles like this, and many use those paint chips/swatches you can get for free at any home improvement store. I used cardstock in various colors, including glitter. I used a scrapbook punch to make perfect, identical circles, then glued two circles over a piece of string. Rinse, wash, repeat. When I finished a string, I tied it to an embroidery hoop. When all was said and done, I covered the hoop in ribbon. Some people choose to make the strings all the same size, but I liked making them uneven. A few other ways to do this can be found here:http://www.rubyredesign.com/2011/11/pinterest-challenge-paint-chip-mobile/

Mirror: Don't remember :(( It was a HomeGoods find (discount decor store) and we painted it off white. It's plastic, though, which made it super easy to hang.

Oh, your nursery is adorable PPM! I agree with everyone--you did a wonderful job!

We're going to use an elephant theme in our nursery, too. The women in my family have collected elephants for many generations back, so they're very special to me. You are giving me some great inspiration!

Can I finally post O's room?!

There are a few details still missing in these photos (a picture above his dresser, the curtains in one picture) but close enough! It's a really small room so it was hard to get good pictures.

It was impossible to get a shot of the mobile I made, but it's owls and trees if you can't tell!

His name canvas isn't really that high up, it's just the angle of the picture. Visually I would have liked it lower, but he likes to try to take it off the wall!

Oh! lol I was wondering if the cribs were side by side; now I see the sign that says Oliver! I can't wait to see the boys room!

Thanks Dandi, but I'm not clever at all! I took the idea for the mobile from one I saw online. The canvas is from Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/trendypeas I posted a closer picture of it earlier in this thread too: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/baby-nurseries.125127/page-17']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/baby-nurseries.125127/page-17[/URL]

PPM - if you happen to see this, what is the name of your paint color? It's the exact shade I want to paint our master bedroom and I'm awful at deciphering paint chips!!

PPM, I'm hoping you see this too. I need a new area rug for my bedroom, and I'm considering the one you have in the nursery. My walls are gray like yours. Do you love ithe rug against the gray? Is the biscuit color more of a grayish tan or a true tan? It's hard to decipher in the picture. Thank you!!!:)

I wanted to share my little girl's nursery and also bump this up to see if anyone else has something to post! I do have to say that any future babies will probably be out of luck on the fancy/personalized nursery!

ETA: the only thing missing is the comfy rocker/recliner that we bought for the nursery but DH insisted we try out in the living room until little girl makes her entrance. We will see if i get it moved into the nursery or not!

LovesVintage- Thank you so much! I really like the butterfly mobile thing too. I couldn't believe Pottery Barn was the cheapest place to find it, too. I looked at curtains for a long time because I couldn't see paying $100 or more per panel, especially because are windows are taller and we need long curtains (96in). The ones we got are actually shower curtains. We just folded the strip over and then used the curtain clips to hang them. It was a lot cheaper and the baby has to learn to nap without black out curtains anyway.

lulu- Thank you! I think you have a beautiful, classic middle name! I am glad my little one has good company with the name. I bet your nursery was great. I love seeing how everyone organizes things like closets and changing tables.

indecisive - You're so clever to have used the shower curtains!! I remember looking at panels like that. I think they were at Urban Outfitters of all places!! I didn't know they had the butterfly orbs at PBK now. I guess I'm a little out of the nursery decor market now that I have an almost 2 year old! (How did that happen!?!?) Anyway, I got mine on etsy. It's hanging over the changing table, and I just love it for its freshness and ever so slight movement, every now and again. Kiddo seems to like it too! Yay for butterflies! And, birds too!

I always loved looking at the gorgeous PS nurseries here so I thought I would post ours. We only have a small room in our house and everything was DIY and on a budget. I had a lot of fun throwing it all together!

Hi, ladies... sorry I didn't see your questions 'til now:

Kunzite- the color is Sea Haze by Benjamin Moore!

Dani- It's a pretty true tan, but we have it against grey walls with off-white furniture.

Ello, Indecisive and Mia, the rooms look darling!

This has been one of my favorite threads to peruse, even before I was pregnant, so I wanted to share our baby girl's nursery. We are virtually done, though I still have several little details that I'm waiting on (a lamp for a corner, some items that will have her name on it, etc.), and I still need to iron the curtain panels.

It's a pretty small room (about 10x10), and our closets are tiny, so we tried to add in as much storage as we could.

indecisive - I think we might have the same crib (though yours is white), and I just noticed we have the same butterfly mobile (which is one of my favorite things in the room!).
