nursery progress

The baby's room is definitely coming along and it makes me so happy. I love going in there and I think our baby will enjoy the bright, happy space.

It is still a work in progress. The stuff on the bookshelf will probably change. The crib bedding is being made. I am waiting for some artwork for the walls. And I may add some fabric to the curtains.

And, judging by the boxes, I still have some cleaning up to do.
I have a few weeks to finish everything and I can't wait to see it all come together.

One of my favorite things in the room is this chair.

I knew I wanted a rocking chair in the room but I was having a hard time finding one that wasn't super bulky or way too expensive. After doing some research, I found a couple blogs that solved the nursery chair dilemma by taking an Ektorp Jennylund chair from Ikea and retrofitting the bottom with a rocking mechanism. This seemed like a great solution! After a trip down to Ikea and sitting in the chair, I knew this was what I wanted to do as well. Peter ordered and installed the rocking piece and my nursery chair was complete. I love the feel of the chair, the washable slipcover, and the fast that it is small enough to fit nicely in that corner.

I am excited to finish the room in the next few weeks!

I knew there had to be a globe in there! But I'm surprised at the lack of chevron and a vintage pastel map. I totally love it-- perfectly you.
