Nursery Reveal

Again, I apologize for the iPhone pics... But here is the nursery complete!!

The mirror was the color inspiration. I bought it at least a year before we got pregnant. I knew I had to have the mirror, but had no idea where it would go in the house.... Until I started planning the nursery...

The ink sketches were done by my talented sister in law, and was exactly what I wanted!! Made my Sarah Richardson design-inspiration complete!!

Bedroom wall stencil

It just occurred to me that I never posted pics of the wall stencil we FINALLY put on our master bedroom wall! Eventually I hope to post pics from my actual camera, instead of my iPhone, but for now these will have to do!!

The stencil took 2 people (me & my mom) and took about 3 hrs total (well, more like 5... But we had to make a run for some more craft paint when we ran out, and we ended up doing a bit of shopping as well....)

I absolutely LOVE it! It totally transformed the room and added that little Oompf that it was missing...

Nursery update!

We've finally put all the furniture together and in its rightful place. Slowly, I'm going through what we've been given thus far, washing it all and putting it away. There is still a LOT we need (and I'm not even sure what it all is either!), but it's coming slowly. Just need to hang the bookshelf, mirror, and pics (once my sister-in-law finishes the sketches!).

Wall decal from etsy. (can you see the resemblance to Sarah Richardson's Sophisto-Nursery??) The 5 sketches by my sis-in-law will go on the stripes above above the crib.

Before the other wall decal arrived...dresser is new from Ikea, crib is hand-me-down from a 2nd cousin, and the change table is also a hand-me-down. There's also a rocking chair at the end of the crib, in front of the closet door (cuz the room is so tiny! And this is our "big" spare room!!)

After the wall decal arrived (LOVE it!!) ("Promise me you'll always remember you are Braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem, and Smarter than you think")

Lamp I found at Babies R Us (and to think, the hubby originally wanted me to return it!!)
