I’ve been on hiatus from this blog for quite some time… And here’s the reason why.. We are adding a new cub to the family!
We have been busy preparing and getting ready for her arrival, which should be very soon!
I thought I’d share her Peacock themed nursery as my first post back.
Here’s a photo of her room from the balcony. Her room used to be my office… All my stuff is pushed to a corner, so we will be sharing the space for a bit.
Her crib: crib from Land of Nod (it was important to us that the crib was real wood, chemical free, and made in the US), organic sheets from Pottery Barn, ruffle crib skirt from Pottery Barn, knit blanket was a gift from a a family friend, and Shi Shu bamboo blanket on top, from my best childhood friend. Giant frog is the “Bestever” mat, a gift from a college friend.
Next to her crib is her dresser/bookcase/changing table.. I had these modular bookcases from Ikea that weren’t being fully utilized, so I flipped them on their side, got some extra baskets and inserts, and it made a great multipurpose shelf for all her things! Expedit shelf and drawers from Ikea, Peacock bins are 3 sprouts – bins were gifts from my cousin and one of my closest friends, white bins from Ikea. Naturepedic changing pad, with cover from Land of Nod. Owl lamp from Target. Diaper cake made with Honest Co diapers, and lots of love from a lifelong friend.
Her dressing area is on one wall since this room does not have a closet, which works out fine since most of her clothes are folded anyway… Dog tail hooks from Ikea. Top two hanging dresses were each a gift from a family friend and my best friend! Navy Blue dress is from Little Bean Sprout
Reading/feeding nook: storage bench is a repurpose from my office before as well from Ikea. Chair is from the Little Castle line at Target (also made in the US) a steal compared to the Little Castle chairs sold at baby boutiques. Pouf is from World Market. Pillow is my own creation for the baby.
Last thing to do decor-wise is to hang the peacock mobile that I made for her, but have not assembled.. Here’s a photo of the peacocks that need to be hung up!
I love the way her room turned out — I hope she likes it too when she arrives!
As you can see from this post, we are so blessed to have so many thoughtful and amazing friends in our lives.. Thank you all again for your love and support. I can’t wait for the new cub to meet everyone!
Hope the next post doesn’t take me another 9 months…😉
