baby B | the nursery

Baby B's nursery was originally our guest room when we moved into our house in December. so, we had guest room furniture in the nursery for a while until we figured out what we were going to keep and what we would get rid of. we got our crib pretty early because my grandmother bought it for us, so we had the crib set up with a bunch of dressers and cedar chests blocking it for a long time. we finally got all of that furniture out of the room towards the end of the summer, and I couldn't believe how open the room felt!

we moved our only matching set of dressers into the nursery for Baby B, and left the small cedar chest as an extra closet. then we moved a few bookshelves in, and the nice swivel recliner that my in-laws got for us! I wasn't sure how all of this furniture was going to fit into the space, but the room actually still feels super spacious because it's open in the middle! we aren't the kind of people who buy matching sets of furniture (hence why we only have one matching set of dressers, and that's because they were Thomas's as a kid haha) but I think the white/gray/brown goes together well. that's pretty much the whole color scheme of the room anyways! haha

after our first two baby showers, we started to organize the room and put things into place. then we were able to put stuff in it's "spot." when it hit a month until his due date, we hung the decor on the wall, and made sure all the sheets/blankets/onesies were washed and put up. if you notice, we've already got like 30 stuffed animals in his room which is kinda crazy! half of the stuffies are actually mine that i had as a kid! the brown bookshelf we were going to use as a bookshelf, until we realized we had too many books for it! haha so we moved the white bookshelf in (my dad actually made it) for the books and ended up putting some of the stuffies on the brown bookshelf. I'm not sure I want to keep it like that, but for now it works I guess! 

we aren't doing a set theme really, but I wanted to do a mountains/woodland critter feel because those are the things we love. I love foxes so you'll notice a lot of fox stuff, but then we've got the bears and other critters represented also. it was fun to just find random things that all fit together to make this room feel cozy for Baby B! we love the way it came out, and can't wait to bring him home to his room! it is crazy spending months putting a room together for this little life that will be coming to the world... and now we can't wait for him to be here! we're ready for you Baby B! :)
