Olivia's Nursery

The nursery is finished!  We have been working on the nursery now for about six weeks, just working on bits and pieces as there has been time (and energy!).  It has been a lot of fun!  I made almost everything in the room and had a lot of help from Hannah.  I didn't really have a specific theme in mind.  I just knew that I wanted some darker and bolder colors.  I get tired of pastel colors after a while.

We found this Tigger in Walt Disney World outlet store on our trip in September and I just fell in love with him!  We knew we were pregnant at the time but weren't sure if we were having a boy or girl just yet so I resisted the urge to purchase all three and just picked up Tigger.  He ended up being the inspiration for the entire room!  I love the dark and light pinks mixed with the turquoise blue and the paisley print.  We found Pooh and Eeyore at our Disney Outlet store here at home last month.  I also found the blue and pink paisley fabric (on the lamp) that matches perfectly.

I made the crib skirt in three separate pieces so that they can be repositioned to always touch the floor (and hide stuff!) no matter what height the mattress is at.

This is probably my favorite part of the room!  I love the fabric lanterns as a mobile and the height that they add to the nursery.  I used a tutorial that I found online and spent many, many hours putting them together.

We were thankful to not to have to buy any of the big furniture and gear this time around.  The crib and glider are Hannah's hand-me-downs.  The bookshelf was my sister's from when she was little.  The ottoman is a piece of storage furniture that I added a cushion to and covered with fabric.  We are using a bookshelf with fabric bins as a dresser in the closet.

My second favorite part of the room.  Hannah and I made this art piece together with scraps of fabric leftover from the crib skirt.  I just love how it turned out!

Hannah also has her little rocking chair set up in the room so she can rock her babies while I am rocking Olivia.  She has already been practicing!  The little rocking chair was mine when I was little.

Four weeks from tomorrow until Olivia is scheduled to make her debut!  We are ready to meet the newest addition to our family!
