Almost Finished! - The nursery reveal!

Well, we are thisclose to complete in the nursery! Close enough that I'll call this a big reveal! Only things left is the other curtain, and to recover the glider.

First, Wyatt loved Sophie so much, he wanted one of his own. His room has lions, monkeys and elephants, not giraffes, so we had to find a new friend. Elephants it is!

He loves them!

 We bought a glider on craigslist. I was so excited to find one with white wood! The cream cushions however leave much to be desired, and they clash horribly with the gray on the walls. So I'll be recovering them over the next few weeks.

I am trying to do one of those cool paper lantern/pom pom mobile things, which is apparently much harder than it looks. I wanted something like this... 

And I got this instead. I need some serious design help. Ahem, Brittany. 

It looks even worse than I remembered! I've also been crafting up a zillion hair bows! I made all of these for Little Willow. I sure hope she has hair!

My mom and I were working on a ruffled curtain, and she was awesome enough to finish it for me! I absolutely love it, and it may be my favorite piece of her room!

 We used this tutorial , although we purchased twin flat sheets, as we wanted more colors. they were around $4 each, and we bought 1 of each color (3 white, to be used as the base as well). I was able to get enough for both curtains and the matching crib skirt. Super easy, but time consuming for sure. I used the same ruffle technique that we used on the crib skirt. I just love the way it turned out! Thanks mom!

Scott was able to do the dresser refinish too! I feel so much better having all the furniture in the room, instead of just masking tape lines, haha. 

 I wanted to add a little extra something, so I painted the sides of the drawers! A little peek a boo blue! I still need to do the touch up on this, but I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Above the shelf that her name letters will set, we put up a vinyl quote from Coco Chanel. "A girl must be two things: classy and fabulous" I love this quote. To me in is extremely feminine, without being too "I am woman, hear me roar" or pink princessy. If I can raise my daughter to be classy and fabulous, I will consider it a job well done. 


I even got her drawers organized! I didn't take drawer by drawer photos, but I had to show her stash of newborn diapers! These things are just sooo cute!

She also already has more shoes than I do! We were also able to finish the closet doors. We do need to get new molding for the top, but that should be bought tomorrow. In the meantime, please ignore the ugly wood strip. 

So cute shoes!

Now that the dresser is in, I was finally able to get the closet set up the way I want it.

Newborn clothes on the left, 3 months on the right. The blue and gray bins hold bibs, baby wearing pieces (2 slings, a moby, a mei-tai and a water sling), the bigger sized diapers. These will probably move, but it will be at least 3 months until she's able to wear them, so they'll stay in the closet for now. 

Here is the fabric that we will using to recover the glider. 

I think it's perfect! Once we actually do the recover, I'll try to do a detailed post on that. Not a full tutorial, but lots of pics! I'll also share which tutorial I used. 

Just a few more little details. I love this lamp!

Final look at right side of the room. Minus the rest of her name, of course. 

What do you think??

It looks amazing! The curtains add that great pop to the room. Btw, the name tease is killing me still!
