Lucy Bloom's Nursery
Nothing Like Nesting
So here are some pictures of her nursery. This is as done as it is gonna be until she comes. We want to paint her room the same aqua blue you see in her crib bedding, but we are unsure how much longer we'll be in this house. So, ideally it would be that color walls. I also want to reupholster the glider in a fun orange or neutral color. I also want to make a mobile for her...I have an idea, but am going to wait. She'll be sleeping in the pack and play in our room anyways for a little while!
This is one of the very first items I bought for the nursery, actually the second. I got it at a yard sale for $10 with my sister-in-law, Ashley--my yard sale hero! We touched it up with paint, but it was exactly what I was looking for. I just new we were having a Lucy Bloom. That bedding fit her perfect. As soon as I told my mom we were having a Lucy she ordered the bedding from Target. The painting was custom from my sweet friend, Milady Griffin. That verse summarizes the emotion we feel regarding her entrance into life and our family! It's a special Spring with Lucy Bloom.
My precious daddy-o painted this dresser for me as a surprise. They had it in a storage building and told me I could have it. It was this 70s wood color. My mom bought the glass pink knobs for it. It is my favorite! The two paintings were also done by Milady Griffin; I picked out the flowers from the bedding.
The box on the left is a gift from my friend Lindsey Durham, she made it! The blocks are also done by Milady Griffin. She sells the whole set of block letters, hand-painted by her, on Etsy. Her business is called "Squid Monkey." That little bear there was my bear when I was a baby. It winds up and plays music, although it doesn't work as well as it used to!
This is the glider my mom and dad got me. It is pottery barn second-hand, woop woop! I am still in search of some good fabric for it to reupholster. The giraffe I thought could be Lucy's music playing "bear." The pillow was the very first thing I bought for Lucy--yard sale:) Got it the same day as the crib. It says on the bottom, "Where there's mom, there's love." The blanket was crocheted by a friend from church. I love the little flowers scattered all over it.
The lamp my mother-in-law found for me at a yard sale. It's in a great shape, and I love that it has storage on the bottom I'm using for some books. The picture frame and book are from my sister-in-law. The changing table my mom found for me at a auction, dad repainted it. The "Lucy Banner" was made by Ben's cousin, Megan, as decoration for my baby shower. Thought it would be a super cute addition to the nursery. If you can see on the bottom--she has lots of super cute shoes! Well that's it for now on her nursery. I will post new pics of projects and maybe some with her in it! I'm a day past my due date, but calm as can be. She'll come when she's ready. I am savoring this time with her so close to me..I'm sure I'll miss it once she's out, but there's probably nothing better than holding her close, smelling that sweet baby smell, and hearing her coo and awe! Hopefully my next post will be my birth story! Much Love~ Jenny and Lucy Bloom.
