Navy Nursery Progress

April 9, 2013

Nesting is in full force, y’all. So, I thought I’d update you on some nursery progress—it’s the least I can do since I haven’t updated you on anything else lately.

First of all, I revised the moodboard:

Revised Nursery Moodboard

I tried to streamline to colors a bit from version 1.0. I thought things were getting a little too wackadoodle and I really wanted to focus on the navy and yellow with small hits of red and turquoise, plus the awesome pattern of the pillows.

First, I started digging on these sconces from Pottery Barn and then I found them brand new on ebay for almost half price. Hooray! They swivel right and left, but are somewhat unobtrusive while you’re sitting in the bed. I mentioned my plan for the pillows in the last post, too. I made a big, long lumbar pillow for the bed and a smaller one for the chair.

Hey look, somebody needs to iron shams! As for the lamp shades, should I add some trim?

Here’s the pillow for the to-be-delivered-any-day-now chair. It’s currently chilling in the Baby Mod Olivia crib with some stuffed animals waitin’ on a friend. (And yes, they will vamoose once the kiddo starts occupying the crib.)

Next up, taking a cue from the Jenna Lyons playbook, I painted the beat-up cream dresser (which you can see the before in slightly more detail here) the same color as the wall – Benjamin Moore Hale Navy. And I sprayed the handles turquoise. Can’t decide if they need a little dimensionalizing with some rub ‘n’ buff/ general distressing or if the flat color is working.

The red side table has relocated under the window and is waiting on the rocker and clearly a bookshelf to arrive. Kiddo is already behind on his/her summer reading.

This is the (apparently now sold out from Urban Outfitters) aqua reading lamp I got to go in this little nook. I’m afraid I’m going to hate how it shines in my face while I’m sitting down, so…we’ll have to see about that. It looks cool, though. I’m thinking about making a homemade diffuser? If you have any ideas on how to do that, please share!

And once I organized all the gear from my baby showers, Taylor and I rolled out the new rug. WITH a crib and a double bed still in the room, I might add.

So that’s where we are right now! Still on the list: figure out some sort of shelving situation for the closet, figure out what art/mirrors to hang and where, sew the crib skirt and possibly some bunting, wait for the last of the pieces I ordered to arrive.

I’m hoping to be back sooner rather than later with some non-nursery projects, too!

    Really like the idea of painting the dresser the same color as the wall. Would never have thought of that, but it looks great–especially with the turquoise handles. Looking very nice–hope you’re enjoying the anticipation stage.

    Can’t wait to see the room with Baby Crawford in it!

    Okay. So I think I’m in for trim on the sconce lamp shades. Think it’ll make it more kid-like. Also, I might add that despite the degree of difficulty rolling out a carpet pad and carpet in a fully furnished room, this may have been our most successful rollout. Nice job, hon.

    Love the yellow and blue combo. And the accents of teal are beautiful!

    Love the room! Where did you get the carpet from?
