Updated 12/19/09***
Well, other then a few last items I need, the nursery is offically complete!

Here is DH putting the crib together
Image

Crib shots
Image
Image

Far corner of room shot
Image

Close ups on furniture
Image
Image

The shelves:
The wooden Rub a Dub Dub blocks I made, thanks to an idea I saw on etsy
Image
The oposing wall's shelves
Image

The closet
Image

The last few things we need are baskets for organization of the changing table, the glider (which my SIL bought but it isnt in yet) and the duckie rocking chair, which my mother is going to buy for us as a welcome home baby gift.

Also, on the wall by the crib, I will be making wooden wall letters, but that will be after the birth since we are team green and don't know if it will be Jaxon or Sophia yet :D

Image

:D So happy it's finally done. I keep going in there and looking at everything :)


*******************************************************

My nursery is still under construction in my head only LOL
The work will begin in a few weeks.

The Concept:

Ducks and Bubbles. This is how I invision the wall to be painted. I want to take wooden circles and paint them like bubbles, and some with duckies inside them.

Image

I want to do white furniture, this is the style I invision.

Image

I have ordered the quilt :) My mother-in-law bought it for us. I found a women online who custom makes them and I love her rendition of my ideas so we went for it!

Here is the design :)

Image

And the duckie print close up :)
Image

Couldnt find Rubber Duckie print bedding ANYWHERE so I am so pleased to have found this :D

And lastly, the duckie mobile I found, has been ordered.

Image

I can't wait to actually post real pictures of my progress and have so many other accessories and Ideas I want to add.

Ok. Did some work for the nursery over the weekend and thru this week. Here's some updated stuff :D


This is how we wanted the walls.
Image

Here are the bubble and duckies I made for the walls. We will just have to paint the stripes on the wall. (Early November, hopefully, as we still have yet to move out of the nursery :P We are remodeling the master bedroom, and it's taking FOREVER!)

Image

Here is a close up on the duckie.

Image

Here's the image of the quilt I was emailed. (I had it custom made)

Image

and here it is in real life :) I :hb: it

Image

Canisters I made (well glued duckies too :P ) for cotton balls and Qtips :)

Image

And here is what we have yet to make/buy.

Image

Image

I cannot wait until we move into the new master bedroom so I can get started on painting and assembling it all. My shower is Novemeber 28th (due to out of town family being in for Thanksgiving) so I am hoping to have it painted and ready by then!

Well we made some huge progress this past weekend, and will be ready to assemble furniture and decorate soon!!!!! So excited! Just need the carpet, which will go in the next few days!

Here are some before shots:
ImageImageImage

DH hated the woodwork and wanted it all repainted white (which I love since I wanted al white furniture in here)

Here is the room in the early stages of priming and painting. The yellow reads alot louder then it is, its really a pale yellow.
ImageImage
ImageImage

Now, we did the stripes this past weekend and the chairrail and I am completely in love with the room. Still have to hang the baseboards and put the carpet in, but other then that, the hard part is done!

ImageImage
ImageImage

And lastly the ceiling fan :)

I knew even before I was pregnant I wanted a rubber duckie nursery. And when we decided to stay team green it sealed the deal since its so gender neutral. But I must warn you finding rubber duckie stuff for a nursery was so hard! I had to have the quilt custom made since I didnt find any yellow and blue duckie baby bedding. Also I had to buy alot of the stuff myself since I couldnt register for most of it at the main stores like Target and BabiesRUs. But it was worth it in the end and I absolutely love walking in there. Its so bright and cheerful!

Hope baby loves it, too! We'll find out soon!
