That nursery I've been teasing you with for months...

IS FINALLY FINISHED.  And I am in love.  Lucy's nursery was kinda blah.  {Ok, like really blah.}  This nursery is not.  Bonus points for having it done way earlier than the last!

BOOM!  Matching cribs and a seesaw.
The no-sew crib skirts that I slaved over. 
Old faithful(s):  Glider and changing table
The no-sew valance I also slaved over. 

I know what you're thinking.  You're thinking, "What is all that crap hanging behind the bedroom door???"  Patience, my friends, I shall discuss my {brilliant} Pinterest-inspired organization technique in a separate post.

We changed everything in this room: the paint, the area rug, the layout, THE THEME.  Seriously, mutant  vegetables...LOVE.  I bet you wish you thought to use it first.  A big thank you to IKEA for having inexpensive, awesomely cute fabric!  I am so happy that we finally decided to re-paint this room; the shade(s) of green are really soothing and completely transformed the space.  You may have also noticed that we got rid of that way under-utilized twin bed, to maximize toy floor space - we anticipate the toy situation will increase exponentially in the coming months.  This room is done.  It's perfect.  And I am so happy with it!  The one small addition I would like to make in the future is a photo collage above the glider and changing table (says the girl who has yet to print a single wedding picture).

It's totally nuts to see two cribs when I walk into the nursery.  Even though Park won't sleep in there right away, it still makes it feel very real.  Whenever you're ready Baby Boy, we're ready!!!  

All accessories can be found at IKEA.  If you'd like to make your own DIY no-sew crib skirt or valance, check out this tutorial


  1. Eeeeee! It's so cute! Totally crazy to see TWO cribs. They're both gonna love their room.

  2. Love the room! I have high hope for picture collages, BUT I'm terrible about printing pictures too!

    1. Thank you very much! *One day* I will print those pictures...haha. I'm determined.
