Nursery Pictures

Some of you have been anxiously awaiting nursery pictures. Despite the fact that I'm not completely finished with the room, I thought I would finally indulge you.

Now for some prefacing...

The oval above the bed will encase the first initial of Bebita's name -- I know some of you were probably hoping I would forget to take the letter down before posting the pictures (ahem, Dad). Sorry...my lips are sealed. The oval with her initial was an idea I had in my head, but I couldn't find any place that sold such a thing. Finally, I was looking on eBay at wall letters and I came across a seller who made shapes as well as letters. When I say "shapes" I mean stars, moons, circles, hearts, etc. I was so determined to make the idea in my head come to life, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to just ask if they would custom make this design for me. I tried to explain it as best I could and then I drew a picture of what I wanted it to look like and sent it to them. They said "no problem" -- they could make it for me. Woohoo! So when it came in the mail, I was a little nervous opening it, which soon dissipated when I saw it and couldn't believe that it was exactly what I had imagined and it turned out perfectly! I was so excited to hang it on the wall. The oval and letter are made of wood and painted white. It cost me a total of $10.00 -- $5.00 for the oval and $5.00 for the letter. I was ecstatic and still am...I love it!

The chandelier in the corner was something I picked up from Urban Outfitters on clearance for $9.99 last August. It is also made of wood and for some reason didn't come with all of the parts, so I had to improvise by using ribbon (there were holes where I tied the ribbon and I'm not sure what they were there for).

I still need to get a changing pad to go on top of the dresser. It will go right below the animal pictures. But other than that, it is close to being finished. I just put all of Bebita's clothes in her drawers and closet today -- they look so cute. I posted pictures of that below as well.

In my opinion, the pictures don't really do the room justice. It was really hard to get good pictures because it is such a small room, but hopefully you get the idea. If you want to get the full picture, you'll just have to come visit us...and you're more than welcome! I love the way it turned out and now all I need is little Bebita to make it perfect!

Enjoy!

Darling room. I really do love all the details. I love the grown-up baby girl tones - with the terrific colors, patterns, and textures. Great stuff, Leah! And what a mighty researcher and determined lady you are. I love the treasures you have found.

Leah said...

Thank you so much everyone! I loved doing it! :-)

Aren't you going to give me a hint? Is "e" the second letter of her name?

Leah said...

Ha, ha...my lips are sealed! Sorry. ;-)

i really hope the doctors didn't accidentally not see a little weiner on this kid because otherwise that boy is going to grow up absolutely drenched in pink and brown.

but seriously...everything is so incredibly adorable and you did an amazing job!! :) You are decorating my house someday...if you have time :)
