baby boy's nursery

We have made some great progress on baby boy's room and I am happy to say it's done! 

It was a lot harder to concentrate on decorating a nursery with a baby-toddler running around at my feet.  But after throwing around some ideas and spending a lot of time on etsy and pinterest, this is what we came up with.  I saw these prints on etsy and knew they were going to be our "theme". 

His room is not fancy (we didn't even re-paint the walls) but I am in love with it and I can't wait to bring him home to see it.

We had a small budget to work with, so we re-used a few things that Emily no longer needed and found a lot of great stuff at Ikea.

his name is on a shelf above the glider, sorry I had to crop it for now!

Here's all the info:

Dresser: re-used from Emily's room, from Target similar. We got Emily a larger dresser from Ikea and used her smaller dresser in his room.

Changing table: re-used, we found this at a consignment store last year

Glider: re-used, this was a floor model (meaning super cheap) from BRU

Bedding- Carousel Designs. I went on their website, looked through fabric and designed his bedding.  I love how it turned out!

Crib- Walmart

Expedit shelving cubes- Ikea

Lamp- Ikea

Rug- Ikea

Curtains- Ikea

Wall prints- Etsy, Monkie Birdie Designs. I can't say enough great things about this shop! They made the giraffe and the ABC print custom for us. Very friendly and fast and so many cute prints in their shop!

Frames- Ikea

Mobile- we made it!

So there you have it!  31 days and counting, we can't wait to meet our little man!
