Nursery Talk

Re: Nursery Talk

  • We did a woodland/adventure themed room for DS. It was intentionally pretty gender neutral, so we'll stick with that them for this little girl as well. I'm going to swap out some of the art, but otherwise it should all be fine. We keep the babies in our room in a bassinet for a while anyway (I think we transitioned DS somewhere around 8-10 weeks old when I went back to work so he could sleep longer without me waking him up at 5 AM). Since my maternity leave will run into summer vacation this year (I'm a teacher), she'll probably stay in our room longer.

    The biggest struggle is going to be converting our guest room into DS's new room. We need to paint, get toddler furniture, move all of his stuff over, transition him to sleeping in a big boy bed...yikes! I'm hopeful that all of that will go smoothly and I'm going to try and get a lot of work done over our winter break if I can (and enlist family help to move the old furniture out!).

  • We moved the extra book shelf out of the extra room.  Thats a start!

  • I love seeing everyone's progress!  Our nursery is still the storage room...ugh.  We have decided on a nautical theme.  The crib and dresser are grey so we want grey, navy blue, and teal as the main colors.  Target has so much cute stuff.  I can't wait to finally start.  First step is box up a zillion things and drop off at Goodwill!

  • It's so exciting to see some people starting up their nurseries! We will be doing a travel theme, so excited to start, but likely I won't get to start until end of December.

  • @Nolegirl1185 I was just at Target this weekend and saw all kinds of nautical themed stuff for baby's room! Anchors, whales, ocean. So much fun! Can't wait to see what progress you make.

  • Posted awhile ago about no nursery ideas because I was focusing all of my attention on potentially adding on to our house...well it turns out that we are going to move and our new home is scheduled to be completed within a week of my due date. So there won't be much in the way of cute part colors or anything but I am hoping to find do some cute maps or adventure type prints to hang on the walls once we move in. We will just be using the furniture from DS's nursery.

  • @KirstinH88 yes, I've been eyeing it all for awhile now. I want it all lol.  I keep making myself hold off on the decorations until the big items are done (crib, dresser, rocker, etc)  Crib and dresser are done so far, among many other things.  But I still need a rocker of some sort and a mattress before I'll be buying anything decorative.

  • I bought a second-hand Land of Nod crib from a neighbor last night for $75. It looks to be in really good shape and came with the toddler rail (and a mattress, not sure if I'm going to use it but the peoples' house seemed nice and clean...). We are hopefully moving next summer, and we currently rent anyway, so I'm not doing too much in the way of nursery decorating. I even registered for white crib sheets because I don't want to make any decorating decisions. I got a second-hand glider (but may end up springing for a new one). The last thing I really need is a changing table.

  • Sorry to resurrect a dead post, but has anyone used Carousel Designs for customs nursery items? I'm considering doing a changing pad through them even though they are pricey. I can't find what I want with the right colors anywhere else, and wondering if their stuff is worth the price tag? Thanks!

  • @catem07 baby will be in our room too, we don't have a choice as we only have two bedrooms until our addition is finished. (which isnt really going to make any progress until summer) we also gave DD the much bigger bedroom as she has a lot more stuff. When the addition is finished our current bedroom will stay the nursery so trying to get it somewhat together now.

  • @belocin did you have issues with DD and the stuff around the changing table?  DS would have ripped the stuff off the walls, and my DD likes to kick the wipes that are next to her changing pad

  • @pammasu0909 She's only recently gotten long enough to reach the wipes with her feet and she doesn't really care for them. She does like to grab the lotions from the basket when we sit her up but puts them right back when it's time to get down.

  • @kitkat8387 Wow! I'm impressed. I don't have an ounce of artistic capabilities in my DNA otherwise I'd love to stencil a cute elephant on the wall in the nursery.

  • @KirstinH88 that's genius, I think I'm going to have to! 
    KirstinH88Nolegirl1185
  • @BabyBlake042017 pretty! I like the theme. Where did you find your dresser, if I may ask? I'm looking for one that small and most of what I'm finding is just too big. That looks perfect.

  • @BabyBlake042017 DH did the same thing with DS's nursery! We had a pretty neutral brown/green/yellow wildness theme, and he got this rainbow colored bicycle print that he just LOVED and wanted to have in there...it's not as mismatched as Mickey is, but it irks me a little bit every time I see it in there, haha.

    I agree with PP...stick it behind the door! Or, in the closet... :smirk:
