Nursery in Progress

I would prefer to share a finished nursery, but lately we have been doing things more at 90% complete! Some people have asked, so I will go ahead and share where we are at before we are transitioning her to a big girl room!

I was tempted to keep my old bedding and thought I could add in pinks, but one of my favorite things about the boys nursery was how it was painted and I was not up for painting another room of stripes.  And I was really loving pinks and greys - so finally I said forget it - we are going girly!!!  Not too crazy girly - since most of you that know me, know that I'm pretty far from a girly girl.  But after having two boys I think it is time for a bit of pink in our house.  So ultimately I still wanted something soft and sweet.

Here is a bit of taping out the chevron stripe on the wall.  It wasn't too bad to do, but I wouldn't be jumping to do another.  I was certainly happy I chose to do just one! 

A lot of people asked where I got the grey chevron sheet - I found it a Pottery Barn Kids.  I got the bed skirt there too, but am not a huge fan of it - if you look close it is a strange grey, but I was tired of looking for bed skirts.  I did find a really cool chevron bed skirt that fit great, but it was either the sheet or the bed skirt and once we lower the mattress the skirt will probably go, so I went with the sheet.  

Did I mention she is one of the only girl grand babies in our family - I think she is doing quite well in the clothes department!  I got out a few of my outfits from the boy - but so far have not put any on her.  

My mom did an amazing job recovering my rocking chair!!!

I found this cute little night light at Pottery Barn Kids too.

So what else needs to be done?  

We need some accessories for some fun finishing touches!!!

Well - a few things.  We put a dimmer switch in - genius, huh!  We got the idea from our neighbors, should have done that with the boys' room.  But like typical Bormann DIY - attempt 1 and 2 failed and Keith has to call the dimmer company to fix it.

We need to bolt the dressers to the walls.

We have one curtain tie back hung - still need to add the second.  And I might get around to ironing those curtains.

I just found these ducks and wooden name on Etsy, so i ordered them in pink, grey and white.  Hopefully they will arrive next week. 

I ordered a bunch of these frames.  You have to paint them yourself, so hopefully they come soon.  I ordered them before she was born, so I need to figure out what the heck is going on.  I plan to put her newborn pictures in them.

Where's your rug from? It's pretty too! Good job on the girly room. I'd say yes, after two boys you deserve some girly stuff! :)
