Nursery Progress

I know I’ve been griping and complaining about how slow progress has been for the nursery, but the truth is that we ARE chipping away at it. It’s just a slow progress. Still, I should give a little update of where we are so far and what projects we’ve managed to complete. You know, considering […]

Storing Our Stash – A Mini Nursery Update

Will turned 7 months old last week and while it’s hard to believe the year is flying by so fast, I also realize we haven’t done a very good job of giving you guys updates to our nursery as we’ve  settled in and really started using it. So, today, (after over a week of no blogging–the […]

Up! Up! And Away! – DIY Nursery Mobile

A post about the nursery mobile! Super late, but it still turned out super sweet and it’s worth sharing with you all. I knew I wanted a cloud mobile because I liked the idea of looking up and dreaming about the sky, so I pinned a bunch for inspiration. I found the ones with balloons even […]

DIY Miniature Hot Air Balloons

One of the crafty projects I had wanted to complete for Beanie’s nursery was a mobile. We didn’t end up having time to finish this before he was born, but I did get part of the project finished before his arrival (which you can read about here.) However, I didn’t get a chance to get […]

Our Modern, Gender-Neutral Nursery On a Budget – Cost Breakdown

If you missed it, I shared the full reveal of our nursery, here. Now it’s time to share our cost details! One thing that’s always important to us when redoing a room is to focus on keeping costs as low as possible. This time, we were just finishing a huge kitchen renovation, trying to build […]

Beanie’s Nursery – Reveal Post

I think we’ve now shared all the projects we completed for the nursery…at least the ones we completed before Beanie’s arrival. So, that means it’s time for a full reveal post full of photos! If you remember, we started from here: Of course, before that, it looked like this: And don’t forget the purple and […]

Side Table Success

I searched and searched for the perfect side table for the nursery, without much luck. Everything I liked was way too expensive. Everything cheap was way too ugly. But, Wyatt presented me with the offer of building one using some table legs he found at our local thrift store. I’ll admit I wasn’t sold when […]

A Sweet Shelf (And a spot for diapers)

One of the last projects we did in the nursery was to install a shelf above the dresser for a little more storage and place to sit a few little decor pieces. Other than the book ledges, which are just for books, I didn’t have anywhere to sit things, other than the floor or the […]

Treasure in the Attic: Mary Poppins Prints

I already shared about the little gallery wall I created for over the crib in the nursery using Ikea frames and a couple things from Target. You can read more about that here, and find links to some of the free printables I created. On another wall, I really wanted to hang a few of these awesome […]

Wonderful Walls + Free “Hello Sunshine” Nursery Printable

I finally got around to adding artwork to the walls in the nursery. I have to say, I wasn’t sure that would happen before Beanie arrives, but three cheers for a few final pushes, right? Over the crib, I wanted to create a little gallery of some of my favorite prints. Some, I had been […]

Creating a Cozy Sleep Space with Curtains

If there’s one thing I know about babies (it’s frightening how much I don’t know…really), it’s that they need to sleep. A lot. They also need to eat, and have their diapers changed. And when those things don’t happen, they tend to cry about it. So, creating a cozy place to do that is one […]

Skirting the Issue…er Crib

One of the little DIY projects I’ve been wanting to tackle is the crib skirt, or rather a version of a crib skit. Because our crib has a drawer underneath, we couldn’t use a standard crib skirt with the draped fabric that just tucks under the crib as you lower the mattress. We needed something […]

Lights for Late Nights

This weekend, we tackled another pretty big project in the nursery, switching out the lighting fixtures. If you’ll remember, this is what was in there before, the basic builder shade that we had in all the rooms upstairs: Not so exciting. Or very bright. So, we knew we wanted to switch it out. One of […]

Rock-A-Bye Baby

You guys, we have a rocking chair for the nursery now. It’s starting to feel like a room that we could actually use. To back up a bit, I have been shopping for a rocking chair for awhile now. I think I started seriously looking when I was about 10 weeks pregnant, pinning possibilities to […]

Crib Notes

Well, guys, we officially have a crib for Beanie to sleep in…sorta. Well, it’s true we have a crib, and the crib is even put together, but we still need to get a mattress. To back up a little bit, let me just talk about out crib shopping experience a little bit. I started looking […]

Beanie’s First Library – Installing the Nursery Book Ledges

Melissa knew long before we started planning Beanie’s nursery that she wanted a full wall of books to read with our little one. It became my job to make that a reality. I started by talking about the steps to build our own book ledges in THIS POST. Once we got them primed, painted, and […]

DIwYatt: Building Nursery Book Ledges

A couple weekends ago, I put together the book ledge shelves for Beanie’s nursery. Since then, we’ve been working on getting them painted and hung on the wall. Melissa is pretty excited about this project being checked off the list. We considered just buying pre-made ledges, since this idea is certainly not original to us, […]

Sweet Storage for Sweet Stuff – Beanie’s Dresser and Closet Remake

Now that we have the room all painted, we’re starting to move into the nursery, which is a pretty fun process. One of the first things we needed was a dresser. We’re planning to use a dresser for storage (The closet is small.) and as a changing table. (The room is small, too.) I actually […]

Starting Fresh for Beanie’s Bedroom

When we last left off talking about Beanie’s nursery project, the room looked like this: We finally finished scraping the popcorn off the ceiling, then remudding, sanding, and painting it. The ceiling in there feels so fresh and new. And now, thanks to a few nights of painting, the walls, do too! We made sure […]

Beginning Beanie’s Nursery – Mood Board and Plans

I tend to be a little scatterbrained when it comes to decorating and projects around our house. Being pregnant and semi-overwhelmed about all we want to accomplish between now and then doesn’t help. So, even though I’ve been pulling ideas and thoughts together on what Beanie’s nursery should look and feel like since WAY before […]
