Nursery Set Up

Hi ladies! This is my first time posting, and I just wanted to say congratulations to all! I'm currently 22 weeks, and hubs and I are at the beginning stages of buying a house. Everything should be finalized and we should be settling in by late August-early September. I am freaking out because all I want to do is set up baby girl's room! As a teacher, ideally I would be spending my summer off organizing but theres really no point now that we're moving. My question is when do you plan on getting your nursery ready? 

Re: Nursery Set Up

  • Welcome! Sometime between now and 6 months post-partum. We're presently debating how long to leave our other bedroom as a guest room for a bit after baby, especially as the plan is for LO to sleep in a bassinet in our room until night feedings decrease. But the nesting mother in me wants to get everything put away nice and neat. We also are compounded with the problem that we would like to move when our lease is up in January, before I return to work. I know some people have already completed their nurseries, or at the least the main stuff. Each situation is unique.

    Our baby boy!

  • I am 21 weeks now and we are
    Trying to clean out the room that will be the nursery. It is now acting as DH office and a junk room to store all the things we have no idea what to do with since we just moved the end of last year and are still organizing. I can't do a lot of the lifting so I am at his mercy and he is in no hurry to clear that room out and it's driving me crazy! I just want to clean it paint it and pick out my nursery furniture! I already picked out my paint, a wall cling design and bedding!!
  • We are currently in the process of building a room to put the baby in. We're giving up our dining room. I'm so impatient to get it built but it will be mid-August before we can get it finished. We already chose paint colors and a theme but we are waiting to set stuff up until after the baby shower so we knew what we have and what we still need.

  • Roomie is looking to move out in september so we won't be able to do any set up prior to that. My living room is a hot mess since we needed a place to put the things we already have.

    My living room too! I've been using groupon like crazy so an entire wall of our living room is all baby stuff with nowhere to go...so glad I'm not the only one!

    Exactly! I bought her bedding, we have furniture, I know what wall decor and paint color I want. I told hubs I don't care if we live out of boxes, I just want her room to be perfect! 
  • Welcome and congratulations!

    SO and I are in the process of taking the wire racks out the master closet, repairing the walls from the racks, and painting it since the current paint is flat and shows a lot of marks. Then we are putting a closet organizer in there so he can move his things into the closet too.

    Then we plan to set up the nursery closet to get things off of the floor. After we organize the closets, then (by about early August) we are going to paint. Finally, I have a friend and her boyfriend coming from out of town and the men are going to assemble the crib and finish setting the room up. I hope to be done with most of it by the middle of August. 

                                                              

  • We have cleaned out the clutter in the closet and dresser but I really won't do much until after our shower in September because I have nothing to furnish it with. But that should still be more than enough time to prepare. Plus LO will be sleeping in the room with us anyway so it will be kind of like a baby show room!

  • We likely won't have a whole nursery set up by the time she's here.  We're putting a PnP in our bedroom and will have the glider and ottoman and change table set up in the spare room (to-be nursery), the swing set up out in the living room.  No clue about when we'll build that crib, but it's not necessary for a while after she gets here.  
  • Since we're having another boy, we pretty much have everything we need already and we are re-using DS1's bedding, etc. It won't take us long to set everything up, so I was planning to wait until the fall.

    DS1 is also a November baby, and with him I just shopped throughout the summer and then put everything together and got organized in September/October.

    You have plenty of time. Even if you can't actually decorate a room, you can definitely prepare by buying everything you'll need to it's ready to go when you move into your new house. Don't panic!

  • We moved about a year ago and last Labor Day weekend I set up the nursery.  It's very neutral in theme and we knew were going to try to have another child and for my own reasons I just had to have it set up after we moved so it's basically done.

  • I've just started but plan to be done by mid September. I've ordered a rug and I finally picked out bedding and coordinating fabric for the pillows and bedskirts that I will be making. DD will be sharing a room with DS and I'm going to get the room set up and transition her from crib to bed by mid September so she is used to her new room when DS arrives. He will room in with us for a few months so she'll still have time to adjust to having a brother before she has to share her room.

  • We are giving one of our guest room beds to SIL, she isn't ready for the bed yet, DH let her know that the first week in August we would like to have the bed gone. Crib and chair are ready to go in room, walls are painted, I need to repaint the changing table my sister gave me so it matches the new stuff. I may skirt if rather than paint it, haven't decided. We have the bassinet sitting there waiting, and the portacrib. DH has work to do in that closet and has to get it cleaned out do it can be painted. And after Thursday, I can start buying clothes and registering for specific Items for a boy or girl. It is frustrating when you want to have it ready but depend on other moving pieces to be able to get it done.
  • I'm 24 weeks and so far we just have the room painted and empty. I put a bookshelf in there and filled it with books. Probably will not have it finished til September. We have picked out everything, but have not ordered yet.

    We just started working on the nursery a couple weeks ago. We moved into our home last summer a couple months before we got married, and haven't used a couple of the bedrooms and the nursery was one of those rooms so it was a blank slate to start with which was good. So far all we've done is started painting, and assembled the dresser. The painting process is going very slow since we never feel like working on it after work during the week, and our weekends have been so busy. I've also ordered/ started working on (DIY) a few decorations for her room. Ideally I'd like to have the nursery complete by the end of September (due Nov 1), since I plan on working right up til I pop.
