We finally have it complete…in the final hours. To tell you the truth, we were just waiting on our glider to arrive….which took almost 7 weeks. But, I’m so glad we have it now, because it was worth the wait.
Anyway, let’s start the tour!
First, off, I have to point out the AMAZING handmade mobile that my family helped me make. Here’s a how-to on it, if you want to recreate it for your room!
Okay, back to the tour.
It’s a relatively small room: all a baby really needs! We went with a gender-neutral theme of ‘You are my sunshine…when clouds are grey’, painting the walls a light grey color.
We purchased the Monte Luca glider in black (best decision ever because we were going to do it in white, but the delivery guy’s hands were BLACK with dust, as was the box, and I would have already had to clean it off).
We did get the all white accent pillow too. It took us QUITE a while to decide on a glider, and that’s why we waited until the last minute to purchase one. We knew we wanted a modern design, so that we could use it in other rooms after there was no more nursery. Driving 2 hours away to actually be able to sit in this beauty, is what drove us to purchasing it. I refuse to pay that much money for a chair without sitting in it first.
Even though it’s the most expensive piece of furniture we’ve ever bought, I think it will last a long time.
My very talented mother-in-law did all of the sewing for the room (and the rest of our house). How’s that for custom? She did foam bumpers for the crib and curtains for the window. I love it…when can this be my room?
We purchased the crib and dresser/changing table from Ikea. The crib is the Sundvick crib in white, which we ended up purchasing after Brooke said she loved hers so much for their twins! The dresser/changing table is the Nyvoll in medium/brown and white…which we promptly painted black.
Leland’s new favorite spot is the ottoman, just in case you were wondering.
I also ended up commissioning this beautiful work of art from my brother-in-law’s girlfriend, Chelsea, to give to my husband for his birthday/our baby shower. It has the lyrics of ‘You are my sunshine’ media arted into it!
And we officially stuffed both the dresser and closet full of baby gear. It is probably the most organized it will ever be, but I think we’re ready!
