Nursery-Final Product

I meant to post this before the baby came but things happen (like going into labor a week early).  Luckily, we finished the nursery the previous weekend but it took me a while to get photos of our completed work.  We attempted to keep things very neutral because we didn't know that Henry was a "he" until he arrived!

I posted a sneak peek a few weeks ago with some of the finish details, you can check it out here.

I attempted to stick on a budget with the project and receiving the crib as a gift certainly helped.  We also refinished a dresser from my childhood (repainted and new hardware), bought our glider on Craigslist, used paint we had from the previous house, re-purposed curtains from the living room, bought the rug at a furniture outlet and the bookshelf was a floor model so we got 20% off.  Still, preparing for baby is not cheap :).  We were so blessed to have a few baby showers to get us set up.

Henry is sleeping in a Pack N Play bassinet in our room right for the foreseeable future but we've got his crib ready to go:

We use this changing station at night.  Love having the diapers stacked on the wall for easy access.  During the day when we are downstairs, we use our other Pack N Play for changing and naps.  Yes, we have two and it is so nice with a two story house-I definitely recommend!

Between the crib and the closet, we have the glider and bookshelf-which doubles as a stand for the lamp and gives me a place to put things during nursing sessions.

Close up!  I love the embroidered lampshade but it think this lamp may be a bit too bright for night time feedings.  I'm considering getting a smaller lamp or nightlight as an alternative.

That's it so far!  Now that Henry is here, I would like to make some artwork for above his crib.  Something a bit more "boy" :).
