Nursery- Part 1

I have never picked out paint so fast before. The day before we brought Baby C home, we had spotted a bedding set at BRU that we loved. The Tuesday after we brought her home, we sent my MIL to pick it up and also some decor that went along with the set. I basically walked into L.owes knowing the basic colors that I wanted. I looked at a few variations and made the decisions rather quickly. The corners where the two colors meet, were terrible to complete even though we used F.rog Tape. We didn't really want to wait the three days (for the paint to completely dry) to reapply tape. The two colors, sage green and pale yellow, also meet on one side of the door to the nursery. That was a pain too.
My FIL helped my DH do most of the painting. I mainly helped by cheering them on and completed a few touch ups here and there. We did most of this the weekend after Baby C came home.There is a short hallway as you walk into the nursery. And yes, that is a baby gate. That's the gate we us for our puppies when we want to keep them out of a certain area of the house.
We purchased this unit and the bins at M.eijers. I absolutely love it! Yes, my FIL is wearing a miner's light (also used for night fishing) to spot places that needed to be touched up.
I found and orderded the crib that I wanted on the Wednesday after we brought Baby C home. It arrived the following Monday. Uncle B helped to put the last few pieces together.

The Sunday after Baby C came home, I ordered her rocker/foot rest and dresser/changing table. It arrived the next Friday! I can't remember where we had gone, but I was happy to see the delivery on our porch when we got home. Uncle B and nephew A helped my DH put these pieces together.

More to come soon...

Rachel, I can't wait to see how it all turned out. What crib did you do with? I'm in the process of trying to decide on a crib and I want a white one too. Love the pink bow on the door! What a happy house!
