nursery tour

The phrase may be "if you build it, they will come," but our baby's not paying attention to that. As of right now, she's overdue by 4 days and showing no signs of remorse. I'm still comfortable (maybe too comfortable...), just dealing with nightly sleep that seems to come in 2 hour increments at most. Guess my body is just preparing me for our daughter's contribution to that scenario?

Or maybe she just wanted to give me time to show off her nursery photos. So let's do this!

The vinyl branch and birds are from Etsy seller Vinyltastic. She was an awesome seller to work with; if you're in the market for vinyl, seriously check out her store! I wanted to pair fabric-covered leaves with a vinyl branch, and she kindly created a custom listing that allowed me to do just that. The birds were icing on the cake!

In order to fit a shelf and its essential storage, we had to remove a mirrored bi-fold closet door. Replacing it was a breeze with an IKEA curtain and tension rod. I used the other panel in the package to make a matching curtain and crib skirt. 

One of our friends gifted us with this quilted art - isn't it cute? She's a crafty lady, that one. Now we just need to find some complementary pieces to fill out that wall.

My favorite square in this shelf is the one filled with books. I can't wait to have our daughter snuggled in my lap while we read together. Next to that is a bin of toys, which is second favorite. How can you not love all those squeezably soft friends? 

So, baby, what do you say? Are you ready to inhabit this space?


  1. How exciting! What a wonderful nursery. Love the colors and the details. Hope she shows up soon.

  2. Super cute! I love the tree branch! Can't wait to see your little one! :)

  3. I love how it turned out! What a brilliant idea to use the leftover curtain for a bedskirt, so cute! Can't wait to hear the news of your little one. =)

  4. Great job! You can tell she's got a creative mom :) Hopefully she'll come into the world soon.
