Baby's Room!

Ladies and gentleman...we have a nursery!

Since moving in to our townhouse in November of 2008, this spare room has acted as a storage area, guest bedroom, office and den. Back in February, once all the wedding gifts had been cleared out, I decided to make it my project to decorate and convert this room in to a lovely guestroom and den for me to watch all of my trashy television (Jason prefers that I don't record Keeping Up With the Kardashians on our family room TV). With the thought that we would probably be using the room as a nursery in a year or two, I decided to go with a gender neutral color scheme, which truthfully was an excuse to do the whole room in my favorite colors...black, white, yellow and gray.

Less than a month after painting the room we got a little surprise...
...and this room became a nursery sooner than anticipated.

Finishing this room has definitely been a labor of love and a long, ongoing project. After hundreds of ideas and concepts and countless hours on pinterest, etsy and bouncing ideas off Carolyn, it has finally come together! I had free range from Jason to do pretty much what I wanted, and I absolutely love how it turned out! 

Before I can show it off though, let's take a look back at what the room looked like back when:

And now, I am SO excited to show you the finished baby's room!
 please excuse the photo-bombing puggle.


the details: 
*Clock, Bedding, Throw Pillows & Nightstand via Target

*Valance originally via JoJo Designs but redesigned by Kelly & Cedar Street Creatives!

*Framed bee art via Etsy - Doodling A Smile compliments of The Beeb

When the original plan was to make this a guestroom/den, we got a new TV and my father-in-law built us the shelves. I love having this little "me" corner in the room.
*Glider & Ottoman via Babies R Us compliments of my dad & step-mom

The dresser in between the closets is packed with all the fun things that baby will need once she's a little older...so bigger clothes, toys, etc.

This panda (which is my sorority's mascot) was given to me by my Big Sis, Holly, on the day I was initiated. 

This lamp was the very first thing I bought for the nursery the day after I found out I was pregnant.
*Carter's Bumble Collection Lamp & Shade via Babies R Us

*Baby Nambe Moon Bank compliments of my mama 
*Frame via Target

*Print via Etsy - Fancy Prints for Home compliments of my mama

Instead of buying new furniture I just converted the other dresser into the changing table. The drawers are stocked with diapers and all the necessities, as well as blankets, spare sheets, towels, etc.
*Letter 'K' via Etsy - A Touch of Sunshine 
*Frame via Amazon

*Bunting banner via My Baby Shower! compliments of my friend Robyn

*Furry friends compliments of my mom & sister-in-law, Ally 

*Basket via Pottery Barn Kids
*Changing Pad & Cover via Babies R Us

*Mobile via Etsy - JanieGirlCrafts 

*Frames via Amazon
*Photographs compliments of Sara Jayne Photography

*Delta Canton Convertible Crib compliments of my Grandma
*Sheets via Potter Barn Kids
*Sleep Sheep compliments of the lovely Brynn.

*Musical Bee Rocker compliments of my Auntie Lisa

So there you have it!
I hope baby girl loves it in there as much as I do!

And, YES, for those of you observant folks...Nugget's name will start with the letter K.
But that's all you're getting....just be happy I didn't blur it out. :)
