Nursery Reveal + Weekending

it's as finished as it's going to be...for now.

Brian and I have big plans for after the baby is born. It's no secret that we're planning a big move as soon as possible. We both feel that California has passed it's expiration date for us, and can not wait to get out. So, when we found out that I was pregnant, we originally hadn't planned on setting up a nursery at all, but then my nesting got the best of me, and I pulled rank. We finally have the nursery as completed as we're prepared to do and I thought it would be a good day to go ahead share with everyone.

Let's break this down a bit shall we? We really went minimal on this, because, well, we're going to be moving. We kept it to the essentials and tried to not spend a million dollars. If you've ever shopped for nursery/baby stuff, you know how quickly that can happen.

Getting the crib and mattress was obviously an essential. We both love this one we found at Target for relatively low cost! Then it just made sense to add a mobile. We also knew we needed a baby monitor and ended up getting a nicer one than we thought we wanted because the lesser priced one was sold out when we were getting ready to receive it. You guys, this monitor is totally worth it. If you're in the market, go for it.

The glider is again from Target and really fits both Brian and I well. I'm excited that it has higher/deeper sides so we can rest our head while we're rocking because, let's face it, this is going to be happening a lot. The lamp we found and thought it fit relatively well.

That brings us to the dresser, changing pad, diaper cart and door storage. I don't know about you, but we have a ton of blankets/swaddles/receiving blankets. We don't have a lot of space to store them, so when we found that door storage option at Babies R Us, I thought it was a great way to keep them neat, tidy, and accessible. We opted for a chest of drawers versus the dresser we were building (it was a catastrophe, we're having a ritualistic burning soon) because we can easily organize her items into sizes! The changing pad is at the perfect height for dressing (I don't plan on actually changing her there a lot).

The diaper cart is my organizational pride and joy, I love that it has everything we need on it, diapers, wipes, burping cloths, and even her bath time stuff in the little basket. LOVE IT so much.

That's it! I hope you enjoyed my little tour. And, I'm linking up with B Loved Boston to share!

  1. What a sweet little nursery! I love polka dots so that changing cover is the best. Jess at Just Jess
