A Nursery for Charlotte

I guess it took me not stressing about it and a hurricane to get me to finish the nursery, (and maybe a little nesting). Really happy with how it turned out. It's a small space but I think it looks so cozy and sweet. When scoping out blogs and pinterest for ideas my favorite nurseries are the ones with little DIY projects and special touches... weird, right? They just always seem so put together with love- and that's what I wanted for our sweet babe. This room adjoins our bedroom and was originally a huge ass walk-in closet. It's funny because it is the only room in the house to actually HAVE a closet.. haha. 

One thing I realized in putting the room together was how much I dislike most nursery furniture. The more expensive, the more I didn't like it. NOT usually the case with me! So we definitely hit up IKEA, and I think their minimalist look and clean lines really suit the room and help it not be too cutesy; especially since I did a few "cutesy" projects. I definitely didn't want the room to be too girlie and I am slightly embarrassed that I incorporated so many trendy Pinterest projects... but ah well. It's a cute little room- and now WE'RE TOTALLY READY! haha, the list has been completed and we're ready to cuddle with our sweet baby girl.
