Our Nursery

As we prepare my old dressing room to be a nursery, we are utilizing our resources as much as possible.  We purchased a used glider & ottoman from an Oak Park neighbor, which I will change the pad covers with a fabric, I found at an Oak Park Resale shop.  Our crib was given to us by my lovely sister in-law.  An old dresser of mine, we plan to sand down & paint a lovely shade of mint green, while changing the knobs, which I've been scoping out, from anthropologie.com.  A changing table is being passed on by my sweet aunt, which may get sanded down & painted.  I have some other fun girlie items that will get painted & reused or simply used to give our little girl's nursery some personality.  I love that we are reusing so many things as it gives the nursery our own fun loving recycled vibe.
As we discussed things we liked & disliked regarding nursery decor.  We agreed to go with a palette of fun loving colors (no pink...as I don't really care for pink much) and deck the walls with maps and woodland animals.  We weren't very fond of the nursery themes we found available, so we went with things, we thought would be special.   I found some great ideas from Etsy and can't wait to get this room finished.
I am so anxious for this little one to arrive!!!! Happy 26 weeks, this Thursday!! Only 2 weeks away from beginning our 3rd trimester. (YIPPPEEEE!!!!!!)
