Crawling Along with Nursery Progress

So here she is - baby girls nursery in its first stages!  My brother was nice enough to come over Sunday afternoon and help me with getting the trim molding (where the white goes to blue) up but it was too dark by the time we were done to photograph it so Ill have to show you that later.  It was surprisingly easy and went up with some simple construction glue. Also hung a few of the book ledges but need to finish that up this week.

Even more exciting is that our crib arrived!  The hubs is swamped this week but he will be putting that bad boy together soon so I'll actually have something to put in this room to help with scale. I am struggling with finding a right sized dresser that isn't too big for the room but also not too small to be useful as a changing table. I'm hoping once I have the crib assembled, I'll be able to get a better sense of size as well.

Oh yea, today is the first day of my third trimester.  Eek!

    What a spectacular baby room, I love the color and the light fixture. Can't wait to watch the progress as you add a crib and other furniture.

    It will be utterly gorgeous.  Loved your spread in the bhg magazine.  You and your home were stunning! Congrats on 3rd trimester. I had my 3rd daughter on March 1, and those 3rd trimester memories are all too recent. You'll have a baby in your arms before you know it!

  5. Thanks.  Its Martha Stewart Wrought Iron in a Glidden Duo base (its one of those primer and paints in one so it covers really well)

    Gorgeous color & room!  Is that light fixture original to the house? I looked back & can see it was in earlier posts of this room but it looks so pretty in your photos here. Congrats on your third trimester!

  10. That light fixture!  I am in love with it!  So smart to set up the crib first, then get the dresser after.  I planned my entire nursery and then once the furniture arrived, I had to reconfigure the whole room like 3 times.  Scale is everything.  I can't wait to see the crib :)

  12. Thanks!  No, not original.  We picked it up on our architectural salvage road trip years ago.  I totally love it too. http://www.brooklynlimestone.com/2007/04/architectural-salvage-review-new.html

  13. Im still not convinced everything will fit in here so Im stressed about it but Im just pushing onward.  (And when I say 'everything' i mean a crib, small chair and dresser).  Its really a tiny room.  Hopefully I wont regret going with the small space.

  15. I share everyone else's love of the light. It's so hard to find attractive ceiling mount fixtures. That navy paint kicks butt. I can't wait to see it with the moulding!

  16. You're off to a great start! That dark blue is amazing and I can't wait to see how the coral pops off of it. The light fixture (vintage, I'm guessing) is so pretty.

    Love it!  Can I ask where you found your ceiling lighting fixture?  It's gorgeous.

    I had to have my changing mat on the floor for safety as my kids wriggled so much

  20. Very pretty. Which room did you end up using, the former box room that you had the long table in? Offhand do you know the dimensions of the room?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes it's the small room. Dimensions are 6.5 feet wide by about 10 feet long.

  23. I purchased it at an architectural salvage shop and had it rewired. More info here: http://www.brooklynlimestone.com/2007/04/architectural-salvage-review-new.html

  24. The nursery looks great so far!  We never got so fancy with ours, and I do regret not actively decorating it... lots of white :) But I hung a prism in the south facing window, and now my daughter wakes up to rainbows everyday!  Love following your projects, thanks for sharing!

    Your baby’s room color is so chic and sophisticated.  I’m not surprised if you end up setting a new bar in baby land.

  27. I LOVE the color.  At first I thought it was black...we just painted my bedroom black.  Love what you did with the walls, ceiling and molding!  :-)   Happy beginning of your 3rd trimester!
