Nursery Tour

Written by Shannon Leigh

It's official! Peanut's nursery is finished (besides a few finishing touches of course)!
I made the yoyos out of the fabric used in Peanut's quilt and strung them together to make the mobile. I saw the idea on etsy and decided I could make one for much cheaper. Mission accomplished.
A special thanks to my husband who helped me paint SOO many pieces of furniture and staying sane while I worked on various projects.
My mom helped with the bedding which turned out great!
I used the same fabric to make a valance for the window.
At some point I will probably have to make blackout curtains but for now we'll see how she does with just the blinds. My Dad helped us modify/hang the chandelier which looks pretty spiffy. My parents gave us both the armoire and the buffet we are using for the changing table.
The baskets on the bottom are full of baby necessities such as diapers and burp rags.
I love the look of the milk glass handles that I found online. They are totally vintage (right up my alley). I got the pulls for the armoire from Anthropolgie on sale.
The teddy bear's name is Bruno. It was Matts' when he was a baby. We have to keep it up on a shelf because Izzy really likes him. I have found him in her mouth on more than one occasion. I got the bookends off of etsy too. Gotta love the vintage!
My sister and mom made this adorable bow organizer out of a frame and ribbons. I can't WAIT to fill it up with adorable bows, I've got a decent start! We hung hooks below for hats and headbands.
Thanks to Matt's Mom and Dad for the gorgeous rocking chair. It's SO comfortable. Good thing it is comfy since I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of time there.
Come out Peanut... we're READY for you!!!
