Nursery Ideas

I am beyond excited about decorating and furnishing the nursery for our little man.  There are so many possibilities.  I know that I don't want a super "babyish" nursery with only pastels and I want the wall color to be neutral enough that it doesn't always have to be a nursery. 

I bought a crib set at Marshall's over the weekend and I'm a little pumped about it.  I won't be using the bumper so I have it for sale on Craigslist.  I could not believe that I found almost exactly what I wanted!  I was going to make the crib skirt with this exact pattern but now I don't have to and that makes me very happy because I feel like the "to do" list of things to get done before baby arrives gets longer everyday.
We are still in search of a crib but we know we want something made out of a really dark wood. 

Here is what we have bought thus far:

RENS Sheepskin, white
A faux sheepskin rug for in front of the crib.

BEKVÄM Spice rack, birch Width: 15 3/4 " Depth: 3 7/8 " Height: 3 1/2 "  Width: 40 cm Depth: 10 cm Height: 9 cm
2 spice racks that will double as low hanging bookshelves mounted on the wall.  I just need to spray paint these white. 

Bedding for the crib

Remember this post from a while back?  The blue elephant will now be residing in the nursery.  We are going to use this as an accent piece to go next to the glider.  It won't really be large enough for a lamp but it might be able to hold a small basket of supplies.

More to come!
