Making of a Nursery - Part 3

Several new updates on the nursery front.  Again my goal is to have it completely done by Thanksgiving...so only a few more weeks to go!

Since the last post we have accomplished a good bit.  For starters our crib now has a mattress.  Several of my co-workers went in together and surprised us with the mattress which was so sweet! 

I also made some fitted sheets from a blue and white swiss dot fabric.

Our changing table arrived and we have put that together.  Still working on storage options for the bottom portion, but hopefully I will post about that next time.

My mom gave us this sweet little rocking chair, and Nick painted it a fun orange!

Speaking of orange....for a slit second I was considering painting the bathroom orange (no thanks to Kiley), but since it took me over a month to decide on a blue/gray for the nursery I quickly realized that I didn't have near enough time to mull over that decision.  Not to mention I am such a coward when it comes to decorating...I always take to safe route....even though I know the bold approach would probably look better.

All that to say...we decided to paint the bathroom the same color as the bedroom (Benjamin Moore Gray Owl), but managed to spice it up with a fun orange and white horizontal stripe shower curtain.  I am so pleased with the result and cant wait to get a new bath mat and towels to tie everything together.

You may be wondering where all of this orange is coming from...well I did manage to pick some accent fabrics which will be incorporated in the room.  None of the work is done so I don't have any pictures to show, but here is a peak at the fabrics. 

Stay tuned to see where these will be used!


  1. I love your shower curtain! Where did you manage to find it? I've been looking but have had no luck. Thank you!

  2. Thank you! I actually made it. I searched high and low for one and never found one that I liked so I just cut some orange and white fabric in strips (12 or 13 inches wide I think) and sewed them together then added the grommets at the top.
