Mission Accomplished

And we finished BEFORE we needed to (we have 2 weeks, 5 days til my due date, so I'm currently patting myself on the back.)

And now I will share the photos of the nursery that should hopefully feel like you are transported into the tiny bedroom on our 2nd floor. Kennedy and I have been enjoying just sitting in there in the evening and looking around the room.

Tonight, my lovely sister-in-law, Stephanie, helped us organize all his clothes by size in his closet. Honestly, it would not have gotten done if she hadn't helped us.

And honestly, the nursery wouldn't have gotten done to this extent if it wasn't for everyone else in our lives. We have been overwhelmed with the amount of love and help that our family and friends have showered us in. And maybe I'm gushing and having an emotional pregnancy moment, but it's also the truth. I almost need to cry over how undeserving I am of all this love.

STOP! I'm going to stop now, so I can share the photos! Enjoy!


Step over here and you can see the crib. Above the crib is a photo of each of our 3 dogs. Yeah. 3.

Throw pillows made from the same fabric as the crib skirt. Headboard is an antique door that Kennedy re-stained. Above the headboard is a tree picture (center) that sister Emily drew and had everyone at my baby showers put their thumb-print on in lieu of a guestbook!

Notice the dog in the corner. This child will have no shortage of dog toys.

Changing table/book shelf. Yes, I staged the changing table caddy with diapers and baby powder.

Pinterest-inspired bulletin board (backed with chicken wire!) We put pictures of his baby friends, family pictures, a dog calendar, etc, etc.)

View from the Diaper Genie II!

Fun projects! Printed letters from this site and hung them up.
Got an old, burned up fence picket from this fiasco, and Kennedy put 4 different knobs from Hobby Lobby on it.

AWESOME! Jaclyn made this shadow-box name with antique letter press letters. I can't stop looking at it! It's on the side-table by the rocker-recliner.

Where I'll be spending a lot of time. Sister Emily also made that adorable "C" stool next to the chair. (We have so many hand-made and thoughtful gifts that have helped furnish this nursery. It makes it all the more special!)

1AM and I'm updating my blog about the nursery? What am I, CRAZY!?! I'm going to sleep now.

The room looks incredible!! What color are the walls - are the a shade of gray or just white? We're getting ready to repaint a room for my 15 month old son so we can turn his current room into a girlie nursery for his baby sister due in March. We're thinking about doing the walls gray, and I love the way yours look!!
Cute blog in general!!

Thanks Tracy! The walls are a shade of grey from Benjamin Moore, but I can't remember the shade off the top of my head...
