Metamorphosis of a Nursery III

8.01.2010

 I hope everyone had a good weekend. My daughter and son in law came and picked up the finished changing table on Saturday and then I went down today to take some pictures of it in the room. I just want to continue sharing the progress that has been made.



Here it is in it's prominent spot in the nursery. She has hung the drapes as you can see, but they will be
taken down and carried to the cleaners to be pressed. Excuse the painters tape on the floor by the closet 
door the painting in the closet is not finished. For those who missed my post about refinishing the changing table you can see it here.


Here's a closer look at the drapery fabric. Isn't it cute? This is the Emmy Monkey collection from
Pottery Barn Kids which is no longer available. She got a real good deal on Ebay.


This is a little pink sock monkey that I picked up today at Cracker Barrel when we ate there
after church. It is exactly what I was looking for to add to the nursery.





This is the baby bed all put together and it converts into a full size bed for later.
They ordered a mattress that should be delivered tomorrow. The bed is a dark brown even though
it kind of looks black in the photo.


Outside of the bumper pads.


Inside of the bumper pads.





These frames have been added recently. Still a work in progress.


And here is mama to be at six months.

We still need to add some finishing touches such as artwork and she wants a chair that she has registered for. Plus she will need a floor lamp by the chair or a little table and lamp. We would love to find a good deal on a chandelier to replace the ceiling fan. It is coming together nicely though and we can't wait till it is complete.

I hope everyone has a good week.

Y'all come back now,

  37. Her room looks wonderful and so does your daughter!

  38. Well, I don't know what the heck happened to my post. Hey...you didn't discard it did you? LOL

    I absolutely adore what you have done so far! Love it all. Especially loving the pink sock doll. And your daughter is beautiful and looks glowingly happy. I'll bet you are as excited as she is. I know I am always over the moon when someone in our family is pregnant.

    Anyway..what I SAID was before on my LOST POST was...I LOVE monkeys...monkey fabric...monkey lamps...monkey rugs...monkeying around ...ooopps...strike that last monkey comment. Our little BabyE's nursery is monkey themed and I used to have a monkey themed guest bedroom although my daughter talked me out of everything I owned (monkey wise that is)..
    I always wanted one for a pet but I guess that's not going to happen at this age. Ya gotta be young to have a monkey..lol

    Have a nice night...Diana

  45. LOVE that adorable fabric!

  46. It is lovely, I was thinking how lucky you are to be involved in the decorating process. I hope when the time comes I will be able to have input! I looked back at your post of the dresser. I have 2 questions. Did you wipe the glaze over the whole dresser and then wipe off leaving in the creases? Also, you said that you sanded a couple spots before the glaze, I never thought about it, but that probably allows the glaze to stay in those spots? PS Your right, the pink monkey is perfect!!

    The room is gorgeous! I am dying to show my daughter...just waiting for her to wake up...she is going to die! She is a monkey freak..she has collected them since she was a little girl. I am so sorry to hear that pattern has been discontinued...I know she would have had to have it! I am sure we will have to make a run to Cracker Barrel for the sock monkey to add to the collection!

    Your changing table is wonderful in the room...I just adore everything ya'll are doing in there...beautiful!
