Nursery Reveal: Baby Who's Digs

Posted by Kristin

Alrighty folks, its finally time to see the finished product of Baby Who's nursery. I've shared Baby Who's Pinterest Board and the ideas behind it. A few weeks ago, you got some sneak peaks at the beginning stages of the nursery being assembled. So now lets take a look at the final product. The inspiration for the colors came from the nursery bedding we registered for. Our primary colors were turquoise and green with hints of red and orange.

Except for the crib, most of the furniture in the nursery was re-purposed
from what we already had, including the white dresser, wood side-table and blue rocker.

Ikea sheets and new green fabric made four curtain
panels that really add some color to the walls.

There's plenty of storage space in the closet and the door knob is a perfect spot to hang the diaper bag.

A simple changing pad on top of the dresser makes a separate changing table unnecessary.
And a mirror is always fun to have around with a baby.  

The orange wet bag hanging on the side of the dresser will hold cloth diapers waiting to be
washed. A basket I had on hand holds various supplies Baby Who will need in the coming months.

Inside the dresser, the drawers are lined with the cutest cloth diapers,
ready to cover Baby Who's little bum.

Some of my hubby's stuffed animals from when he was a tot line the bottom shelf while the full Lemony
Snicket book series lines the top shelf. Technically they're kids' books so they sort of fit in here right?

Baby Who got so many cute hooded towels and robes so I had to make a little hanging rack
for them. Plus it's never too early to start teaching numbers. Remember, I live with a teacher.

Thanks for the great blocks Aunt Ellen!

Yes, that is a beer bottle. And someday soon you'll learn why its in here.

An Ikea bookshelf got a coat of red paint and holds most of Baby Who's
books and an awesome turtle night light. 

Two baskets on the bottom shelf are an easy spot to stash extra blankets and small toys.

Two large Ikea prints in green and blue are surrounded by simple art
made from cards and framed circles of craft paper.

The Tree Top bedding fits in perfectly while the drawer under the crib holds all
the bedding.

The thumbprint tree from my shower looks right at home in here.

An old rocker that I got for free years ago was remade with turquoise paint. To the right, a free road-side
 laundry basket sits ready to hold dirty cloths (after a good scrubbing and hosing-off of course).

All in all, once the furniture was painted, the nursery came together pretty quickly. A big thank you goes out to my hubby for painting oodles and oodles of furniture this summer (not his favorite past time). Welcome home Baby Who!
