Well since we are just hanging out waiting on a baby I thought I should snap some pictures of Dutch's nursery before he gets here and turns functional. Several months ago I made this board for the design and the nursery turned out pretty much just like the board.
Eric wasn't too sure about a nursery that wasn't very babyish but he loves the room and so do I. We both spend a lot of time in here just sitting and looking around. Claire even loves the room and we find her sleeping on the rug beside his bed. I hope that is a good sign or sisterly love!
It was hard to get good pictures in here because the room is so tiny, I think it is 9x9. My belly sticks out about 13" so that only leaves about 8' to work with resulting in some blurry pictures.
First up is this little corner where we like to hang out. We ended up going with the Beckner swivel glider by Best Chairs for our chair. I'm not sure of the style of fabric but do know the color is mouse and is a little darker than the photo looks. I'm glad we went with the swivel glider because the space is so small if we need to move the chair over we just swivel it around. The shutter is something we had in the shed and the antlers were Eric's first deer. Don't worry they are attached very securly to the shutter which is very secure to the wall. We may be a little over kill on making sure things don't fall off the wall.
We found the dresser at a consignment store. I love it and it is the perfect size. The diaper caddy is from World Market and is hidden from view when the bedroom door is open. All you see is the dresser
This wall will probably change but I'm at the point now where I really don't care. The frames have random people in them because they are from the thrift store. Like so random a man is working a machine in a factory and the other is a girl with Ronald McDonald. Waiting on photos of my boy to replace.
Beside the dresser is the tiny closet but just enough room. I think this baby is set up with clothes this year. Sad thing is I think this only goes to 9 months. I can't imagine having a girl, it is hard enough to say no to boy clothes. See all of his long gowns and tiny bubbles, so sweet. And can you tell I have a thing for stripes.
One more thing to show, his light. I bought it years ago for $5 and held onto it. Glad it worked perfectly for this space.
There you have it Dutch's nursery. Now just watiing for a baby to fill it up!
