Remember this is what it looked like when the former owner lived there.
Okay, let's look in through the doorway, shall we?
Let's start in the corner with the glider.
Glider: Babyletto Kyoto
Blanket: shower gift from my sister, found at Verde Kids
Little frames: Goodwill, $.50 each and spray painted
Big frames: TJ Max, spray painted
Levi and Neptune portraits: shower gift courtesy of my friend and photographer Julie Birkemeier, who does pet portraits through her business Mutton Chops.
5x7 monster prints: Etsy shop Prints by Amanda James

Matte: ArtMart framing, $30

Here's the crib:
Crib: Baby Mod Modena, Walmart
Bicycle cog decals: Dali Decals
Sheet: Carousel Designs.
Mobile: Etsy store The Wonderland Studio
Bookshelf: Homemade! Jason built this baby from scratch and then did a million sand/paint jobs. It turned out great. It's similar to the IKEA one everyone has in their nursery, but since he built it, he could customize the size to fit our space.
Lamp: $1 from Goodwill, we bought the shade at Target
Green bins: Target
How cute is this corner! We put the hooks down low so that the kid can reach it in the not too distant future.
Lamb: shower gift from the givers of my first shower. Pottery Barn Kids.
Monster drawer knobs: Etsy store DaRosa Children's Art. Jason found an old board in the basement to mount the knobs to.
Onesie: Courtesy of our friends over at Two Pitties in the City! They were so kind to send it our way after they came to visit.
Bib: shower gift courtesy of my friend who probably wants her name to remain anonymous. But here is her blog! The bib is great because it combines monsters and critters you would see under the microscope, perfect for a scientist like me:)
Shelf: Received as a wedding gift and spray painted white.
Bicycle print: Honey Bunny Studio
Monster figurine: We purchased it at a local art fair, but they have an Etsy store, Monsteropolis. Seriously, this stuff is so cute, it was really hard to decide on which guy to get!
Shelf: Received as wedding gift and spray painted white.
Monster stuffed animal: Leroy from Etsy store Cutesy but Not Cutesy.
Monster figurine: He's on a snowboard and was purchased for Jason a few years ago by my mom. I think he came from Uncommon Goods.
Mobile: shower gift from my sister, Verde Kids.
Wet bag for cloth diapers: Planet Wise.
Changing pad cover: Carousel Designs.
Dresser/changing table: It's definitely a little tall for a changing table, but we'll make do.
Here's my newborn cloth diaper stash! Mostly prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers. I have some disposables from my sister to get us started in those first crazy days.
Lots of hand-me-down clothing from my sister and a few new things from my showers.
And one very special blanket and one quilt.
The yellow blanket was made for Jason when he was a baby by his grandmother.
The quilt is made from t-shirts that were my Dad's. My dad had a bunch of t-shirts that he wore casually and after he died, my sisters and I divided them up. I asked his sister to make a baby blanket out of them so that part of him could be in the nursery and what she did far exceeded any expectations. It turned out just beautiful and I could not be more excited about it.
I just love the way everything turned out. Every decision was a joint effort on my and Jason's parts. Truly a team effort! It will be nice to have such a beautiful room since I will be spending many hours in there nursing the baby:) Now all we need is a baby to put in it, don't you think?
