I've been brainstorming on how to set up the nursery since we plan on keeping the baby in the same room with our (almost) three year old.
Here's some of what I'm hoping to use and somethings I just love. I'm falling in love with navy blue's with pops of orange and red. Right now all of the room is in white. I borrowed my sisters 13 year old crib and dresser and painted it white for our son three years ago. Well, it's quite large for the room, especially if we're going to have both the kids together. So it may be the time to retire the set that has safely seen 5 children grow, and get a smaller crib and dresser.
|My inspiration for the nursery|
|My son's bed!!!|
|I'm in love with these for the baby girl's bedding|
|Love all these colors together|
|So patriotic...and lovely|
|Want this crib|
|Love this pattern for a quilt|
Here's my son on his bed with his blanket and sheets that HE picked out. I didn't ask him to pick out something blue to match with the rooms or anything. He call's it his WoodyBuzz blanket and I find him dragging the comforter and the pillow into every room.
|He refuses to smile for photos anymore, he likes to either grimace|
or put his foot in front of his face. HIS FOOT. I don't know
why, he's three.....draw your own conclusions
I have been thinking/devising/brainstorming a nursery layout that would allow me to walk into the room without maiming myself on a corner, or tripping on furniture. So much that I measured the entire room, all the furniture I *want* for the room and the best flow patterns. I came up with about 7.
Here's what I've landed on today.
It's an odd shaped room, with a weird entry way. The cut-outs are the other room's closets.
Still, hopefully it's just enough for our growing family.
