Nursery Progress - Week 3

Wednesday, March 6, 2013
So I know I've been gone a while.

I blame the whole hormonal baby thing.  I've been avoiding the internet like the plague.  Don't know why.  Maybe I'm trying to focus on the here and now.  Getting ready for D day.  (That's delivery day)

So I haven't been doing too many cookies.  And well, the cookies I have done, I am saving for "maternity leave" so I'll have something I can post in between midnight feedings and the occasional shower I might treat myself to.

So instead I have more nursery details....yay.  I know y'all are probably sick of the nursery.  But it's one of those things I have had to focus my attention on.  I'm seriously due any day now.

Any day.... *sigh*

So here's what we have going on.....

Finally got the wallpaper up on the shelves and OMG it's awesome.

Or ya know....I think so anyway.  And since it's my nursery that's probably good.

My mom spent hours putting it up on her last visit.  See the glass of ice tea on the shelf?  That's a southern woman's life line.  Gotta have tea to tackle any home improvement project.  Otherwise your doomed to failure.

We also got a couple accessories and some furniture in the room.

Sorry the pics aren't great.  But ya know...I'm not exactly an interior photographer...

Anyway.  This chair was inherited as well from my MIL.  It's awesome.  I love it.  I have a match in my master bathroom....

There's the chaning table covered by drapes.....and of course the giant giraffe.  I mean what nursery doesn't need a giant giraffe.

I swear it's taller than I am...which isn't a hard feat...but still...

And a lamp we picked up on impulse at TJ Max.   Yeah.  I shop the Max.  With no shame.

Anyway....crib isn't up's a long story.  Next nursery post will be the completed room.  Well maybe with the exception of some wall art pieces and a bed skirt.  The bed skirt was put on hold.  Part of the long crib story.  So till then...

Maybe pray I go into labor soon.  I really really really want to have a now.

Nursery Progress - Week 2

I went to Dallas recently and picked up the nursery curtains.  I looked everywhere for these and they discontinued them.  So I settled on these....and I was about to order them online but by the time I went to click check out they had removed them from the website!  So I thought, well, when I head to D-town, I'll stop at the nearest PBK and try and find them...hopefully they will still be in stores.  Well, they weren't.  They had one panel in the length I needed. *sigh*.  However, while I was looking for a replacement lo and behold I found these!!

Just like the ones I wanted but in blackouts instead.

The curtains I had been looking for since the very beginning.  The coveted dream discontinued curtains.  I guess they took them out of circulation because they were going to re-release them in blackout panels.  I prefer blackouts for nurseries anyway.  Makes nap time...well...darker.  Especially when the room is practically all windows.  They cost me almost double what I would have paid for the other 4 panels....but....ya know.....ya gotta do what ya gotta do...

I also picked up the wallpaper for the back of the bookshelves.

By the time I talk to you next week, I'll probably have a completed nursery to show ya.

Other details we have going on...

Zebra rug.  I know not the history or origin of this rug.  I inherited it from my husbands family.  But it works so....

elephant curtain finials.....

We had a baby shower and there's all kinds of stuff to get in the nursery now.  It's overwhelming.

We also have our crib and changing table picked out and delivered too.  I offered to assemble the crib...but the hubs got all mopey...something about it being his job....paternal rights...I dunno.

Anyway, that's how it's looking!
