So our nursery is done!  Actually it's been done for about a week now, but I'm just getting around to posting the pics.  It's been a busy week!  We found out that I've started early labor so it looks like babygirl probably won't wait until April 17th to get here... whiiiiich I'm TOTALLY fine with.  So anyway, we've been doing all kinds of things this last week from working in the yard (aka, I watched John work in the yard from inside) to cleaning the house for company to making last-minute purchases on a few things we still needed for baby.  It's been a productive week!  And now we wait  :)

So here's the nursery!  I love being in there and dreaming of our baby girl... praying over her and her future.  Imagining John and I's lives changing drastically as we turn into a family, but so thankful for that change.  We are so excited to meet her and feel incredibly blessed to be entrusted with this life.  

View as you walk in the door - I love how much light comes in (thankfully we have wooden blinds on this window cuz the pompom sheers I made are just for cuteness)

Amazing glider and ottoman, lovingly reupholstered ($40 craigslist score) by Aunt Robbie and John's mom - they did such an amazing job! 

Accent table from Ikea (replaced the knob) with Target lamp and books all ready for bedtime

Wooden birdhouses from Michael's, painted by Daddy  :)

Tree and bird decals from Etsy - so much easier/cleaner than trying to paint something!

The crib!  Great Walmart buy paired with bedding from Pottery Barn Kids which we got from John's aunts and mom

The bedding is themed with trees, owls and birds (I know, I know.  Don't put the baby in the crib with a stuffed owl and a bumper pad.)

Floating shelves with some favorite items

The framed art I threw together with some scrapbook paper, buttons & a white frame we got from Ikea and then spraypainted

Opposite wall of the room

Print sent to us from my sister Cindi, with a verse I've held onto dearly for the past few years
Our "changing table" is just a dresser with a pad on top of it, which means we can continue to use it as a dresser long after diaper changing is done (we added knobs and storage bins for color)

Adorable quilt made by Aunt Robbie - love the colors

Ikea "Picture Ledges" being used as bookshelves... the perfect height for little hands to be able to reach someday and grab books from  :)

I just love the book collection we already have!  My sister Christi got us started with a bunch of my favorites, including "Charlie the Ranch Dog" by Ree Drummond - The Pioneer Woman

Precious owl clock made by Daddy - wooden cut out from Michael's that he spraypainted and then built a clock piece into


  1. Oh my gosh! This is the post I've been waiting for! Everything looks amazing! I knew it would. I can't wait to see it in person! I'll probably cry when I walk in. I love you so much and i can't wait to love on your baby girl!
