The Nursery

There were still a few things that needed to be done for the nursery in these last few weeks, but when we found out we were moving to California, those got put on hold. Namely: curtains, a rocking chair, and a rug, since the size and shape of the boys new room will determine these purchases. So once we're there and settled and everything is 100% put together, I'll post new pictures. But for now, I wanted to document what I'd done in this house. 

For Peanut's nursery back in the day, we went with bright and fun colors. And although I loved that at the time, I wanted to go for a more light, soothing, and contemporary feel this time. I love how it turned out and I'm excited to get the last few things done once we're in California so it can be completely put together!

  13. The yellow safari animals are my fav! Too cute :)
    I wanted to buy that arrow pillow so badly last weekend! However, since I already had $100 worth of home goods in my cart I figured I better pass and save the $25 for a yummy meal in 3 weeks for my Cali trip! Maybe next month, arrow pillow . . . next month.

  21. Jenny:

    We bought it from Babies R Us before Peanut was born, but I'm not sure they still sell them there -- I couldn't find them online.

    But here's a link to another site that sells them: http://www.langtoninfo.com/showitem.aspx?isbn=0012914910146&gclid=CMjMjZXRhLMCFQmCQgodtRIAyw
