Nursery Updates

I posted an update of the nursery a few weeks ago here. All of these items have been checked off: the crib skirt, chandelier, dresser drawers. However, I'm still on the search for curtains. Here are the most recent photos of our baby girl's nursery, which I am in love with!

Before: an empty, but painted room, with inexpensive white curtains (Walmart) to cover the windows. Also, an odd shaped room. This house was originally a cape, but the previous owners added on to the back of the house to make it more a traditional home. This room has slanted ceilings and a (big) closet with 2 doors, one awkward one as shown below:


When I first started designing our baby girl's nursery I envisioned the light blue walls with pops of hot pink. I love the outcome of her room. It is a space she can grow into and I will love spending time in here, as well. Once our baby girl is here I have planned to buy a monogrammed decal for her wall (recently shown here) and a few prints from Etsy.

The chandelier is my favorite item in the room. I love the Giant print because it has sentimental value. It used to be in my childhood room, but was given away at some point. About 5 years ago my Mom surprised me with this framed picture and I've been saving it to hang one day in my child's nursery. We love it! I also love the color of the curtains (on the 1 window). Unfortunately, there was only 2 panels when I bought them on clearance at Ross a while back. I searched the internet for them, but haven't found them. I hope to find a similar color or a light gray color.

The bookcase fits perfectly under the slanted wall and holds all of her books. I am shopping for a large brown basket to hold toys. We currently have a glider handed down from friends of ours, but I am searching for a new comfortable chair to replace this one.

I will add more pictures as the room is completed.
