the nursery...details

so i posted the pictures of the nursery the other day, but as i thought about it this morning, i realized i probably should have posted some details and information about where i got things.

the crib and dresser are from babies r us.  we wanted something versatile that would grow with baby.  we initially liked white wood, but decided that for a boy, and since the crib will convert all the way up to a full-size bed, the dark wood would probably be better.  they are both from the baby cache essentials collection - we ended up with the curved lifetime crib and the double dresser. 

the glider is also from babies r us.  we really struggled with which glider to get.  we actually attempted to purchase 2 other ones that had been discontinued before settling on this one - the newco rosie glider.  i'm a little disappointed in the color (we chose seal - we thought it would a nice dark grey, but it's more green than we thought), but i love the fabric and it is insanely comfortable.

the bench is actually the expedit bookshelf from ikea.  i saw the idea on pinterest, and thought it would work out great.  storage is limited in our house, and we didn't want a big bulky toy chest taking up room.  this will work as storage and a place for him to sit and read or whatever.  my mom is making the cushion for the bench using this fabric.  she's also making a matching blanket. oh, and we got the baskets in the bench from ikea, too (the lekman box).

the music and movie quotes i designed myself (using picmonkey) and printed through snapfish.  they're not the best quality, but they work.  the only one i got elsewhere was the coldplay quote, which i downloaded from the sprik space blog.

on the gallery wall (left to right):


  • i designed the "where there is great love..." quote on picmonkey and printed through snapfish. 
  • the little hulk and little superman are from mint parcel on etsy.  we had a hard time choosing which superheroes to use - they are all so adorable!
  • the he-man print was something i downloaded from deviant art and printed using snapfish.
  • the wookie the chew print is from james hance, and might be my favorite piece in the room. 
  • my sister ordered the up thumbprint guest book from bleu de toi on etsy.  ok, no, this is my favorite piece in the room.
the lamp on the dresser is from home goods.  was wandering through on a random sunday and found it.  it fits in perfectly with the room.

i made the paper lantern mobile using paper lanterns i purchased from the paper lantern store.  it was an enormous pain in the ass, but totally worth it, because i love the way it turned out.

the rockstar print on the door is from it's personal prints on etsy.

the paint colors are both valspar, purchased at lowe's (valspar ultra - zero voc, low odor) - the blue is called ghost ship, and the orange is tangerine.

the shelves on the wall next to the crib are from target.  all the frames are from michaels, a.c. moore, or home goods.

the r2d2 toy chest and star wars trash can were both matt's when he was a kid.

so that's it!  that's where we got everything and how we decorated our nursery.  i mostly have pinterest to thank/blame for these ideas.
