  1. Great job with these checklists! Funny about the diaper pail…we just started some baby oatmeal and wowza, what a difference from just breast milk! Also, I love this part! “You’re the one that will be changing thousands of diapers at the changing table, staring at the walls at 2am as you pace the floor with a fussy baby, folding and putting away baby’s laundry each week, and standing in the doorway just staring into the crib as the baby sleeps.” So true :)

    • Oh, it gets much worse as you add more solid foods to their diet!! I keep wondering, how can such a horrible smell come from such a small and sweet little girl??

  2. Great tour of your nursery! I’ve pinned it to my nursery ideas board. I like the gender neutral nurseries. Yours feels very soothing without all the bright colors that you see so often. I really appreciate your review of where you purchased things and price (craigslist versus department store). Also your thoughts on the diaper genie and your regret for not splurging on this more targeted item. Thanks for sharing with us!

    • Thanks Bethany – that’s exactly what I was going for, I didn’t want bright, bold colors, but was trying hard to be soothing/neutral without being too feminine, just in case it was a boy! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is seriously one of the cutest nursery’s I’ve seen. I’ve been trying to look around and get ideas for my own baby room. I still have a few months but these ideas are so great! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    • Aw, thanks so much Susan! Glad to give you a few ideas. Enjoy decorating the nursery, but more importantly, enjoy your little one when he/she makes its appearance!

  4. What a great nursery! It’s my favorite room to decorate too ;) Love the board and batten and that dresser!!

  5. This is really great, I love the colors. So soothing and it really is an adorable nursery. Thanks so much for sharing at Crafty Tuesday.

    • Hi Andie, my mother-in-law made the curtains, but we got the fabric from JoAnns, in the upholstry section on those big rolls. Not sure if they’d still carry it since it’s been almost two years, but I do remember seeing it there since we got it!

  6. Loooove it. Can I just say that I cracked up when I saw “labor intensive”…ha. I completely agree with you about the changing table – everyone asked why we had one and I thought…because we’re both really tall and I feel much safer with one! I really like that you have an ipod in the room – so do we and my daughter absolutely loves jamming out (it’s also adorable because it’s a panda speaker…muahah!). Thanks for sharing, I loved reading through this and seeing your nursery!

stay-at-home mom to three beautiful children, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
