Nursery Reveal

So before I show you the nursery, I have to show you where I started! Below is a picture of our guest room on the main floor of our house. This room was rarely used, other than for storage and looking pretty! Since its right next to our bedroom, its perfect for the nursery!

Before we knew if Baby Roberts was a boy or a girl, I fell in love with the idea of painting the nursery a dark blue. I figured I could use accent colors based on the gender once we found out! Below are a couple of pictures I tagged on pinterest for ideas.

And here are the after pictures! I am so pleased with how everything has turned out. Of course things are still a work in progress as we continue to get items needed, but if Baby Boy Roberts comes sooner than later, at least we are ready!

Hanging above the crib are three Ikea frames. In the frames are the crib skirt fabric and some adorable green giraffe fabric!

The white bookshelf was one I already had since college, but is a cute addition to the room to display items!

My mom had the blue and white curtains on hand that I could use, but we added a stripe of green fabric to tie in the colors of the nursery. 

The crib skirt fabric is from Forsyth Fabrics, the crib sheet is from Tuesday Morning, and the bumper pad is Carter's that was originally all white, but we added the pops of blue and green for the cording and ties. 

The changing table is a dresser from Ikea. The lamp on the changing table was found at TJ Maxx, but the fabric was swapped out with the crib skirt fabric. The mirror is from HomeGoods. 

 We replaced the knobs on the dresser with knobs found at Hobby Lobby. I love how it ties the room together!

The glider and ottoman are Little Castle from Buy Buy Baby. The floor lamp is from IKEA, and the framed print was a gift from a friend, which was my inspiration for the colors of the room.

Baby Shower!

This past weekend, my sweet friends on St. Simons threw me a baby shower! It was such a beautiful day, and I was thankful to get out of the house! The decor was blue, green and white - the same colors as our nursery!
Yummy food - homemade cookies and fruit and yogurt cups

Me and my mom with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law
And my sweet cousin, Mayer, made the trip down from Atlanta!
And baby Roberts received a lot of great gifts!

All of the wonderful hostesses!
Dad and Johnathan were so nice and came over after the shower to help load up the gifts

Next post ... nursery reveal!
