Oh Baby: Nursery Artwork is Hung

It might seem like this is the worlds slowest room reveal but I'm not dragging it out on purpose. Im still missing the glider. I won't go into the details of what the hold up is now but its extremely aggravating and completely out of my control! Serenity now!

In happier news, the dresser is painted and I have some artwork up.  If you recall my original design, I had a slightly different plan but once the bassinet and dresser were in the room, it felt more spacious reversed so I made some changes.  I may still put up that picture frame molding on the other side of the room but I want to have everything place before I add anything else since I might prefer to use the blank wall for other, more temporary displays.

The artwork was a twist on this free download I shared a while back.  I took 4 favorite quotes from children's books and hung them in Ikea Odby frames.  I think it breaks up the navy blue wall nicely, works perfectly with the coral in the window treatments and adds a punch of pink without being too sweet.  What do you think?

I have a couple of finishing touches to add before I can't do another thing in here but wait.  At this point, I'm putting my money on baby arriving before the room is done.

  3. Lovely. :) And if it's not done before baby gets here life will go on. I promise. :)
    We finished up Charlotte's room literally minutes before Katie left for the hospital. (oh wait, I still have a couple more projects I need to do for that sweet grandbaby's room!)

  5. I know life will go on but that doesn't make it any less annoying. It would be nice to be able to nurse the baby sitting down.

  7. I love those quotes and frames. I have stared at those frames so many times at ikea and haven't bought them yet...you may have just convinced me to. Love the navy and coral combo....

    I love the nursery!  I was so obsessed with having my son's nursery perfect a month before my due date, in case he came early.  Turns out he was a week late, and the 2nd night we were home we moved his crib into our room.  We ended up moving when he was 6 months old, so he was almost 8 months old before he spent a night in his nursery!  I would have never thought that while I was pregnant!

    This room just makes me so darn happy. I love it. Love the color, the curtains, the adorable Penguin book art, all of it. And yes, it SUCKS that the glider isn't in. I hate anticipating something like that and having it stall out. I hope it comes soon so you're able to fully enjoy such a serene space.

    Love your color combination! So perfect! What are the quotes you chose?

  12. The quotes are:
    -Tell me a story, tuck me in tight, tell me you love me, kiss me goodnight
    -Sometimes the smallest things take up the most space in your heart
    -The more you read, the more you'll know, the more you know the more places you'll go
    -I love you forever, Ill like you for always, as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be

  13. Lots of people seem to say they dont use the nursery right away but I think it will be different for us since this room is right next to ours and we don't have anyplace to feed her upstairs (except sitting on the bed) aside from in here.  I'm sure we wont use the nursery exclusively but Im also sure Ill be using this room if its outfitted correctly.

  15. So precious. I love the art, and it really pops against the navy. The room is really coming together! Hope everything works out well with the glider, I'm sure it's frustrating to have to wait. Have a very merry Christmas!

    I seriously have never been to Ikea (my nearest one is 2.5 hours away) but I'm in LOVE with those frames!

  24. Once you have an ikea near you, you will wonder how you lived without it. Its not so much the typical things I find there but if you entertain a lot, its so helpful!

    The nursery looks fantastic! I used the same fabric that you used for your curtains for a duvet in my master bedroom (except in charcoal).  We've had it for a while and it's held up really well!
    As a children's librarian, I also love the book quotes!  I may have to borrow that idea for my son's nursery.  I'm still in the planning stages - too many ideas and I can't focus ; )  I guess I have until May to figure it out.

    Stefanie, I must have been gone for a while, because I just now realized you are pregnant! Best of luck to you and your new addition. The nursery is looking gorgeous, but I'd expect nothing less from you. ;-)
