I had bought some fabric last year for living room pillows but that didn't work out so my thought was to use it in the baby's room. Then I started feeling bad because the room would look more like a living room instead of a baby room, so I switched back to the original fabric. But then I wasn't loving that and did I really want to waste money and time on something I didn't love, even if it was just for a few years? Back to the more mature fabric we went and this is where we are today.
The walls have been painted Smokestack Gray by Benjamin Moore, the background of this board. It is a pretty color, the perfect amount of blue. We were going to go almost white but then this paint card fell out of my paint deck and it was perfect. I think God was telling me to paint the room dark so the baby will sleep better so I will be a nicer parent and person so then I will be more of a light for God if I'm not as tired and grumpy, right?
1) Crib Skirt fabric is Kravet Bansuri Slate. I think I only have enough for a crib skirt and I'm using this method. Should I line it? I'm not doing a bumper.
2) Shade fabric is Braemore Spice Market Ikat Putty. I haven't decided if I am doing roman shades or adhering to roller shades.
I haven't decided on a panel fabric yet if I do the roller shades.
3) Crib is a Jenny Lind crib that my sister bought for us several years ago. I was originally wanting to paint it a color but with this nursery plan it looks best white.
4) The Chair oh the chair. The chair that Eric really really wants is so dang expensive. We have a lot of time to decide so this one is still up in the air. The chair pictured is one I like it's the Nava by Best Home Furnishings and about a 1/3 of the price. Turns out that money isn't the biggest factor in this decision space is. I'll probably post more about this in the next few weeks.
5) The light fixture is one I picked up at the thrift store a few years ago for $6! It does need a plate at the bottom of the light to cover wires but I hope that can be fixed with a trip to the lighting store. The antique brass looks so good with the wall color.
6) Pottery Barn wall bookshelf made by my daddy via these plans.
7) Threshold Jute Criss Cross Rug in 5x7 from Target. Mine was only $33!
8) The dresser was purchased yesterday. I was wanting something a little darker but when I saw this little guy I knew the clean lines would be perfect. The best part- the drawers work great and we got it for $50 off! I'm not sure if the changing pad and diapers etc will fit on top so I may look into getting one of these carts. ps don't look at the wall color around the dresser, it isn't accurate at all.
