Baby's Nursery

So, between March and July we were living at my parents, in a very small but long bedroom with it's own private entrance. We really wanted a super cute and fuctional nursery, and since we were on a tight budget we really had to be creative. We used half of the room for us, and the other half for the nursery. It was actually really cute, here's what we came up with. The color of the room was tan and very dull and dark, so we painted a sea blue, this brought light into the room, and the blue also gave it a soft boyish touch. I wish I had taken pictures of before and after of the room, and our side of the bedroom. Oh well, ..check it out.
We had a banner with Baby's first Ultra sound pictures
I got this cute and super functional little dresser at IKEA. Not only does it work as a changing table and dresser, but when he is no longer a baby, we will use it for storage in his toddler years. The blue baskets I got for just $1 each, they're skinny and long, perfect for storing diapers, and all the necessary things for a changing station. As you notice, the backdrop is a pair of curtain panels, this is what divided our space between our bedroom and the nursery. Behind the panels is actually a really big closet, super fuctional!
We used two wicker chairs, because since we were all three in the one bedroom, we could both sit and relax. The side table is also from IKEA, very functional and neutral off white that matches the changing station.
The lamp was very masculine and vintage looking, which I love, it is made of copper with hints of green. I painted the letters to match the color palette.
This beautiful cradle was hand made by baby's grandfather in Arkansas, and shipped to us just in time for our arrival! Isn't he super gifted with wood? Thank you Possum!
Loved the entrance because we had this rack to hang, jackets, purses, or whatever as soon as we entered the room, plus it was the perfect fit to put the stroller, ready to go jogging!
Some of my favorite outfits
If there is something I would have done different, I would have put more artwork on the walls, and maybe use a darker color to make some of the other colors stand out more. Other than that, it is a very functional space, and we really enjoy it.
