Little Snug's Nursery

This is how the nursery used to look when the previous owners still lived here.

I found this wallpaper at Sherwin Williams and was super pumped. I wanted to create a nursery with an ethereal feeling. My thought was to put this on the ceiling, so we ordered this and matched our paint to the blue.

I started to get antsy because the wallpaper still had not arrived for the ceiling. I really like painting, so we got paint from Sherwin Williams that was supposedly odorless. False. There was totally an odor, but that's alright. I wore a mask the majority of the time.

After weeks of getting the run around, we learned that this paper had been discontinued. FML. I looked around for more cloud wallpaper, but nothing was as pretty as the one I originally picked out. Now, I should tell you that I am not a painter by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought I would take a stab at painting the ceiling myself. Here it is after my first pass at it. I had yet to put in more colors and blend it in.

I still have more blending to do, but I got too big to get up on the ladder. I keep telling myself that I will finish it before my son's 1st birthday. Oh, I forgot to mention that my husband was a huge help with the nursery. He hung the medallion, light fixture, the moon, bookshelf wallpaper, and did all the crown moulding. I have to say that his work is not too shabby for a tax attorney!

Here is my awesome husband getting ready to wallpaper the backsplash for the changing station.

I had used this room previously as my craft room and this little built in was a great sewing desk. When we decided to make this room the nursery, I knew that this area would be a great changing station. I added furniture appliques to spruce up the plain wooden front. I also found some cute knobs at Hobby Lobby on sale.

My darling husband had just put up the crown molding and was about to caulk when I told him to move aside so I could get a picture of the wallpaper. I was staying out of his way while he was cutting the trim. Maybe I am foolish, but I thought the baby could hear the saw in utero and was getting scared. lol

I love how the changing station turned out. We keep the diapers in the big basket to the left (not labeled in this picture) and misc. stuff in the smaller basket to the right.  The middle shelf displays a picture of my grandfather's ship! Now we have a picture of my grandfather next to it. We bought the bookends while we were on our Baby Moon. We went to VA beach and stopped at Norfolk to look around for a day. While we were there, I could not help but think about my grandfather. I told my mom and then she told me that my grandfather actually sailed of Norfolk. I was so happy that we bought those book ends for Snug while we were there.

Do not mind the bag of trash on the floor! lol. I had just put the storage cubes together and was desperate to show my husband all my hard work. First off, the box that contained the storage unit weighed a ton. I am not just saying that because I was 9 months pregnant while putting it together. Anyhow, Snug's closet is still very organized, but he has about 10x more clothes then displayed in the picture (thanks to the ladies at my baby shower and family)!

First off, let me tell you that this is the most comfortable chair I have ever sat my butt on before! I must have sat down on a fifty chairs until I found perfection with this one. I really liked some at Buy Buy Baby, but I was told it would take 3-4 months to get it customized. Uhm, no. Lazy Boy customized this one for me and it was delivered within 6 weeks.  Secondly, installing a door is hard. I love it though! My sister told me that it was a stupid idea, but I thought it would be perfect to use it to peek on Snug. Of course we have a video monitor, but there are occasions when Snug finds a weird spot and it's hard for me to see him. I love that I can walk by his room on the way to my office and just look at him without waking him up. Plus, it's really great when I am blow drying my hair in the bathroom. I can just look right across the hall and see what he is up to. Love it.

A couple of days before my scheduled c-section, I had this feeling that the nursery was missing something. We went to BRU and then I saw the giraffe. I just had to have it for my son's room. I probably looked pretty funny when I was leaving the store. My husband was steering the cart packed with other random crap that I thought we needed, so I had the honor of holding the giraffe as I waddled out of the store. We stopped at Michael's on the way home because we both thought the giraffe needed a massive bow.

Snug loves his room! His favorite items are the light fixture, his rocker-recliner from Lazy Boy, and his dog's bed.
