I’ve been meaning to share Claire’s nursery for a while now. If you were reading when I was pregnant, we did not have a nursery right away since we moved three months after she was born. I didn’t want to go to the trouble of setting something up just to move it all in a few months.
So since I didn’t get to go nursery crazy before she arrived, it’s a real treat for me to have this nursery for her now. Granted, we are moving again in the spring, so her room will look a little different in another house, I’m sure. But for now, we are loving it.
Our nursery theme is grey, mint, and chevrons. I wish there were some more mint accents. I originally planned to have a mint wall, but since we’re renting here for such a short time, I skipped it. Hoping for a mint wall in the next house.
The view as you walk in. The chevron theme runs strong!
Her crib and the letters of her name are my favorite. My husband did an excellent job at hanging them!
I got them at Michael’s for $3 each 🙂
We got this dresser online. It’s cheap but should last through the baby/toddler years for two kids, I hope. I wanted to do a gallery wall but left it as is with that one picture for now. Maybe I’ll add more later.
Here’s a few little details of the room. I found the Pooh wall art at Wal-mart for $4! The bee height chart was a baby shower gift from my best friend. Although we haven’t used it yet, I can’t wait to start adding her height soon.
I think the room came together really well for going pretty budget on all this.
The only thing I was disappointed in for a while were the curtains. I got some very cute (also chevron) curtains, as seen here. I returned them though as they provided NO light blocking. This room gets plenty of light, so I went with a blackout curtain and sacrificed the shade of grey I wanted. Oh well! They do the trick.
Sidenote: the curtains are never opened since it’s such a pain to keep closing them for nap time 😉 But the room does look lovely when the light shines in.
