Just 4 days till my due date and the nursery is officially done!
The last picture has been hung....
all the clothes washed and put away....
now all we need is Jamie!

I always said I wanted a gender neutral nursery so I could use it for all our babies....
well that pretty much cut our bedding search and "theme" in half.
I knew I didn't want something too matchy matchy, but I wasn't opposed to things that were "babyish." He is a baby afterall and will have plenty of time for cars and airplanes when he moves into a big boy room.

When we found the Cottontail Friends bedding at Pottery Barn Kids I was sold.
There were so many different shades of green, tans, yellow and white...even a little pink that I knew it would be perfect for a boy or a girl!
Plus I couldn't resist all the cute little farm animals!

Hope you all like how it turned out!

Here's the best full room shot I could get from standing in the doorway.
The crib is from the JC Penney Bella collection in Espresso.

My Best chair glider/recliner. It's fabulous and definitly lives up to it's name! My mom found a great green and yellow plaid fabric that she used to make the valance....and you'll notice the wood blind we finally hung so we don't have a Lindbergh baby!

Our bargain bookshelf from Target.
I picked up these handmade prints from Etsy. The artist actually makes lot of things to coordinate with different Pottery Barn bedding.
The changing tower/dresser also from the JC Penney Bella collection. My mom used the same fabric from the valance to make the letters and the cover for the changing pad.
Drawers all full of clothes! I probably open them and look at everything at least once a day!
All the diaper supplies. The itty bitty adorable newborn fluff ready and waiting on top....the rest of the bigger cloth diapers are in the cabinet below.
His ever growing wardrobe....who ever said you can't find cute boy clothes obvioulsy wasn't looking very hard!

I love it! That bedding is adorable and I'm still so impressed with those stripes. I love the cloth diapers, the little covers are so cute! I sort of wish we went that route sometimes, for outfit purposes, haha. I just think they are so cute in those little colored covers and a t shirt!

The nursery looks amazing! I love the farm animal bedding (so cute). That crib - oh, my goodness, it's perfect. Just beautiful!

Jules said...

Gender neutral is always nice, especially if you have a girl the next time around. The bedding from Pottery Barn is adorable!

The stripes on the walls look so great and the glider/recliner looks comfy. The prints from Etsy are so precious and I like how is name on the wall matches the fabric on the valance and changing pad.

You definitely look like you’re all ready for sweet Jamie’s arrival! Thanks for sharing these photos.
