The Nursery

In 1 frenetic week I managed to convert the nursery from pink to blue. Thankfully the walls were green so we didn't have to repaint. Just about everything else was girly from the mirror to the bedding to the lamp. After many shopping trips, each item was replaced by boyish blue.

Lillian had moved out of the crib into a twin bed so we have both in the room right now. The biggest challenge was finding bedding for both beds that I liked and that coordinated...or at least didn't clash. I prefer not to use a theme and finding twin bedding that is not covered in cars or animals proved to be quite a task. Not to mention squeezing all that furniture into one room. But I have a feeling that twin bed is gonna come in handy on some particularly rough nights.



It still needs a couple more final touches and the curtains need ironing desperately but for the most part it's done. Now all we need is the little boy who is gonna use it.

It looks wonderful! You will enjoy having the bed in there for a while! Unless of course you get blessed with a sleeper, which I hope you do. Can't wait for you to be able to fill the nursery! Beth

Oh, how sweet! Hopefully you will be exhausted and passed out on that bed sometime soon.

So nice! I love the idea of having a crib and the bed in the same room... a place for momma to rest beside baby.

I love it - it absolutely looks perfect for Baby Boy Harris! It looks so peaceful! Hopefully just a few more days until B.B. Harris arrives and fills the room with the last added touch!

I love it! The green swirl in the twin bedding is awesome - it pulls the whole room together. Very nice job! And congratulations!

Lori,
We are heading for Maryland to visit our grandson, but when I get home I will check the blog immediately for news on your new baby boy. I know when you are waiting it seems forever, but all of a sudden he will be in your arms. We are so happy for all of your family. Liz G.

Congratulations and welcome home to Baby Ian! Like probably all of your blog readers, I'm anxious to see a picture! But we need to wait and let you guys get settled in.
