Baby Nursery Reveal

Last time I blogged about the baby's nursery, we were literally putting the pieces together, but it was nowhere near finished. Over the final 6 weeks of my pregnancy, we pulled it all together. And I'm sure glad we did - I haven't had a minute to even think about since we brought Connor home.

While there's no theme to the room, we did stick with a gray and navy color scheme with shots of bright green. I didn't want anything too babyish, but I also wanted to be sure it looked like a nursery. So, without further ado, here's Connor's nursery!

Reading Corner

Color-block curtains

Gallery Wall with Antique Dresser/Changing Table

Shelf and Hook for Diaper Bag

Crib - we actually have put the pennant above his crib

I'm very proud to say that we completed the whole room for well under $1000, but that's certainly due to the generosity of our family and friends for helping us to furnish key items. And in case you were wondering, here's a breakdown of items:

Crib - Babies 'R Us (gift from my Dad & Stepmom)
Dresser - purchased at an antique store and refinished by my super-handy hubby for around $400 total (cost of dresser plus cost of paint and supplies)
Glider - BuyBuyBaby (Little Castle Glider Company) in Navy (gift from Greg's parents)
Accent table next to glider - Target

Pendant Drum Light - Destination Lighting
Rug - Target
Gallery Wall - frames from IKEA & Target; wall art is DIY'd or from Etsy
Book Ledges - IKEA
Curtains - DIY'd courtesy of my mom (similar at PB Kids)
Chevron crib skirt - DIY'd courtesy of my mom (similar at PB Kids)

Wall shelf- my Grandpa actually built this shelf years and years ago; Greg painted it white
"C" Wall hook - Anthropologie
