Thanks for the links! i checked out the butterfly grove quickly and saw they had a set called BRIANNA which is my dd's name! The prices are reasonable too :)
Here is the set I picked out. i picked out a very light pink for the wall color.
http://www.babysupermall.com/main/produ ... 9006v.html I didn't get the wall paper - I had a hard time removing it from my ds room when we redecorated..not gonna do that again :D
The crib and dresser are dark cherry.
I have been day dreaming about the nursery for so long...I can't wait!

That is kind of what I was thinking. When I looked through the pictures I was thinking "where's the crib?"... and since none of the pictures show the floor under the mobile it was kind of hard to tell. I think the crib will do a lot to give it a more baby feel. Have you picked out the bedding yet?

My other thought was the same as mrstreenall, that a little bookshelf with baby books and things might add to the nursery feel. If you have enough floor space under the shelf I would do that over one of those closet things, however it looks like you may not have enough space. :?

You have done a great job and I love how you arranged the circles. :D It really turned out cute!

that is adorable! i love the little lamp :D cherry furniture would be very lovely for that set!

blue- maybe ill look into a litte book shelf :D i do want to get some books and things so it would help.

if you look at one of the top pictures the one with the dresser you can see in the reflection of the mirror, the mobil and part of a kep board LOL the key board is where the crib will go but i didnt take a pic of it because well LOL the baby isnt going to sleep on a key board HA!

i didnt pic a bedding SET i got some cute polka dot sheets and ill get a creamy white bumper and i figured whatever the sex was ill put a pink or blue blanket in the crib. i was told not to get a bedding set because they are so much money and you dont use the quilt part

very true about the quilt :wink: I draped my ds quilt over the front of the crib and used it as decoration. Now that he's 3, he sometimes asks to lay down with it on the couch but not very often.

I think the room looks great and once you get all your baby items it probably wont have the "somethings missing" feel anymore.

How about posting the babies name up on the wall in wooden letters (if you know that is) We did that in both of my kids rooms and I think it really makes it nice. The room is really pretty!

Fuel your babys room looks great! I love it. I agree with everyone that your very creative. I am so lazy i cant even think about my nursery right now. Of course i am only 12 weeks. I think once the crib is in there it will look even more complete.

I love that book shelf! Very cute. May I ask where it's from? I need a book shelf myself. :)
