Nursery Diaries, Part 1

Callie and I are just sitting around on this rainy day eating air-popped popcorn and organizing/cleaning the laundry room {a scary place in our house}.  :)  Yes, air-popped popcorn...something about the microwave version tastes so fake to me, and I found this air-popper for six dollars so I thought I would give it a try.  It's well worth the six-dollar investment, I must say.  

I've gotten a lot of questions lately about how the nursery is coming.  The good news is it's actually coming along... few weeks ago I wasn't so sure that it would! It's taken me awhile to get started, but now I have a plan and here's where we're at:

I bought a second crib...this was a dilemma for me whether or not to have two in the house, but I found this one on Craigslist for about $60, and I figure I'll leave Callie in her crib as long as she'll stay there. 

Here's a little look at my inspiration for the nursery - it's safe to say I'm pretty much obsessed with the color combination in this room! It's from Lotus Bleu Design, in case you are wondering.  I also did our girls' bathroom similar...I'll share some pictures of that another time.  :)  For now, the nursery inspiration:

I painted the room this shade of blue quite awhile ago with these pictures in mind if we had a girl, and the blue would work of course if we were had a boy.   I  bought a bunch of fabric online (left to right: Premier Prints cadence in pink, blue bees by Waverly I think, hot pink satin, Amy Butler modern floating buds and Amy Butler Modern Honeycomb.  Kind of a hodge-podge, but I'm hoping it all comes together.  The pink bamboo fabric is for the roman curtains I am going to try to sew myself {wish me luck}.  My amazing mother-in-law is going to sew the crib bedding in the next few weeks.  It's exciting yet overwhelming to choose all my own fabrics!  Let's just say I spent way too many hours at the computer trying to decide.

And here's this gigantic mirror I found at a thrift store I am painting hot pink, along with the little scalloped end table I also painted pink {also found at a thrift store}, seen in first picture but it's partially cut-off.  

So wish me luck!  I'll try to keep you updated.  Here's a little sneak peak of another little project I've been working on lately....

I have to ask...where did you find the white chandelier?? I've been looking everywhere for one for my girl's room!!

Okay, one more question for you...I'm in the process of redoing Audrey's room and am looking for a good shade of blue. Do you remember what brand and color you used?
