Nursery Updates

The nursery is almost completed. Just a few more projects to finish, then I can relax. Hopefully the baby doesn't come before that! Below are my current to-do projects, which I hope will be completed this time next week.

Fabric from Jo Ann Fabrics for the crib skirt, as mentioned in my previous post:

The chandelier I bought yesterday at Babys R Us needs to be installed: 

Finish the drawer liners: I bought 1 roll of gift wrap at the Container Store, but failed to realize there were only 2 sheets per roll. I ordered 3 more rolls from Parkside Papers of Wooster & Prince prints. The 1st is the pattern I bought initially, which will only fill 2-3 drawers (there are 9 drawers total). The other 2 patterns are similar in color, but will break up the monotony of the first one.

Curtains: The blinds have been completed and look great! I'm thinking of going with a shade of gray with the curtains. Gray would look soft against the light blue walls, but will look great with the pink. West Elm has two possible selections; however, I think I'm going to wait until the rest of the room is completed to figure out the exact color for the windows. At least the blinds are up!

I love these pewter silk panels:

As well as these platinum linen panels:

The crib skirt will be first and I plan to finish that before the drawer liners arrive. The chandelier will be completed by my husband and father-in-law, and the curtains, as mentioned, will be last. I will post again with completed photos!

Oh, and don't get me started on the glider. I've been waiting on this one from JC Penney to come back in stock in chocolate and now the glider is sold out, as well. I may have to look for a replacement...
