Nursery Design

I started out playing around the the furniture configuration. I used basic furniture pieces in the drawing, so it looks more cramped in the drawing than what it will end up being.

After I had the layout down, it was time to find the furniture!

My parents were gracious enough to let us have furniture that was in my old room before I went to college. They delivered the pieces to us when they came up for the 4th of July and everything worked perfectly!

And of course, we got this crib for a great deal because it was a floor sample.

Next came the big debacle of fabrics...after months of planning, I changed my design scheme and started fresh-- check it out here.

My wonderful Dad built this bookcase for the room, unfortunately I told him to paint it in a color that went with the old color scheme--so we Greg had to repaint it!

Everything started rolling from there: Drapery fabric came in and we selected a paint color.

I ended up mixing my own color that I called "Brockzilla" because Brodie wouldn't stop kicking the whole time I was playing with paints.

Then his Daddy got to work painting.

And then came the drapery!

Then my wonderful swivel glider-it's SO comfy!

I made these little critters to go over the crib.

Next was my DIY box-pleated crib skirt.

Found some great deals on accessories and used a few things I had around the house until I find that something "perfect".

My mom then made the pillows and bumper pad.

We were finally able to finish our art projects since Mr. Brodie is here. Let me tell you, it was a feat to get this done, but I am super happy with the results! (It's of Greg, Mine, and Brodie's hand print)

Here is the "almost finished" product. We are about 98% done. What do you think?
