Sam's Nursery Start to Finish

If you have ever been pregnant you know that the last couple weeks consist of cleaning, laundering and making sure you have everything ready for the arrival of baby. I have just about emptied my first bottle of Dreft detergent with all the washing we've been doing. Taylor has been escorting me around town to make sure we have every last detail checked off, and I am finally feeling ready for our little man. I can't wait for ya'll to see his completed nursery. Taylor and I both find ourselves spending time in there or just opening the door to take a peak.

Take a look at Baby Sam's Nursery!  
Start to finish:

First, we had to move Taylor's office.
Here is our clean slate:

empty room

Then we added the dresser and crib from ikea. See the blog post on our trip here

We then added the rug which I think makes the room. It adds just enough color without being overpowering.

We filled the walls with art from an assortment of etsy shops framed in ikea frames, and the paper mache giraffe from Dwell Studio. The apothecary lamp was a great find from Lamps Plus-available in almost any custom color you can imagine!  I also replaced the original knobs with polished nickel rings...sooo much better!

Bedding from Serena and Lily

Love his little bookshelf-it is the perfect size and will still allow for the 
glider to tuck perfectly into the corner.

Looks like I have my very own drapery installer!

Probably my best find was the linen drapery from ikea (2 panels for $25!).  I did have to invest some money into having them lined (blackout is the only way to go for a nursery) and purchasing the solid iron hardware. 
I got mine locally, but you can order it from here.

And here we are today! We have the glider in place from Ballard, the "s." pillow and the pouf from etsy, and the brass floor lamp from Robert Abbey.

His bookshelves are a work in progress, but for now this is what we've got. And yes, that white box is a speaker. Taylor's most recent tech purchase have been these sonos speakers.  At first I was hesitant, but I have loved having them around the house 
(especially great for football season :)

some of my best organization can be found in these 3 drawers. I am HOPING I have everything I need at my fingertips while changing Sam...including these hilarious pee pee tee pees.

Now all we have to do is wait on our little man to get here!
