Baby Nursery

I had a lot of fun planning this nursery as I had a little more inspiration from blogs and a great husband with a little extra time to help me out with my ideas. I really wanted to do a gray, orange, and turquois nursery, but since this was my last baby, I thought I probably shouldn't spend money on new bedding and accessories. So, I improvised and made it work with my existing baby bedding.

I had Zanzibar bedding that I recieved for my first son in 2006. I picked a cranberry red, dark blue, and a mustard yellow from the bedding as my accent colors and Behr paint in Graceful Gray (lighter) and Elephant Skin (darker) for the walls. My hubby painted stripes on one wall. The facing wall was painted the lighter gray and the other two walls were painted the darker gray. I used some blue and tan stripped curtains I already had to frame the valance from the bedding set. We also built 5 more floating book shelves and painted them Elephant Skin. My brother made some more wall decals for the room.  I love how it turned out!

I have a little tidying up to do still and a few final touches like a tissue paper mobile and new light fixture.  I lost a lot of time to decorate when I was on bed rest for 6 weeks! Thanks to my wonderful Mom for unpacking all the baby clothes for me!
