Then my sister and future brother-in-law came to visit in June and we made some progress turning the room o' crap into a nursery. We took lots of stuff to Goodwill, consolidated what we could, and were left with a semi-useable closet:
It's been raining all day so these aren't the greatest representation of the color, but it's a really crisp, clear green by Valspar called Lily Pond. I love it, and it matches the stripes in the bedding almost perfectly. And how great do the crib and dresser look against it?! It's super bright and happy... I sort of wish I could sleep in there.
Now I just need to find some curtains and artwork for the walls... oh, and a lamp. Probably one that doesn't cost $59.... I'm hoping to hit up Home Goods in the next few weeks to see what they have in the lighting department, and for artwork I'm going with Etsy. I love this
How cute would that be to the left of the window? My mom's rocking chair is going in that corner, and I'm going to put up some sort of book holder, so the alphabet print fits right in.
Our pink and green nursery is slowing coming together... at the moment it's more green than pink, but once we add in the sheets, tissue poms, and artwork, it'll be the perfect balance between bright & cheery and super girlie. What do you think?
