Nursery Tour

Welcome to Baby Bangert’s nursery!

We painted over Christmas break before we knew the gender. We chose Restoration Hardware’s light silver sage for a  color. I knew the color would work well for a boy and of course adding pink to it worked out perfect for our little girl!

This is the view from the door.  The crib was a generous gift from some friends who moved out of state a few years ago and their little guy was ready to move to a big bed. We purchased their crib mattress for only $25 (they paid over $200) I guess it pays to plan ahead! Her bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids I purchased a few years ago on super clearance. I think it was back in 2006 I had MAJOR baby fever, but after lots of life chats with Kyle we decided it just wasn’t the right time yet. Everything happens for a reason, right?!?!DSC09919

Above her crib we plan to do something similar to this with her name. Don’t get excited though, Stella isn’t one of the names on the list…just a sample! image

To the left of the crib is some décor I explained in this post here.

  • The frame on the far left has pink scrapbook paper with a white swirly design. Once we pick out her name I’m going to put a big initial of her first name.
  • Another little owl from my friend, Kim. (Kyle still needs to hang up the carbon monoxide detector)
  • The 2nd frame is something I designed & framed. 
  • Then we have her ultrasound.
  • Lastly, I finished it off with some coordinating scrapbook paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
  • The 2 pink iron flowers below are hooks I also got at Hobby Lobby for $3/each.DSC09928

To the right of the crib is a night stand we picked up at Ikea for under $10. And in the corner is our comfy, cozy glider we got with the generous help of my Grandma! The ottoman was a gift from my Mom & sisters for one of my baby showers! Both are from Babies R Us. DSC09920

Zooming in at the side table…the lamp & light block (the outside says “Iowa Hawkeyes”!!) were shower gifts. The lamb piggy bank was a gift from Kyle’s Grandma. And we picked up the pink clock/ipod dock with gift cards at Target. DSC09921

Here’s a close up of our glider! The owl was made by my good friend Kim’s mom! She used them for decorations at my work shower! Kyle’s Mom made the sweet blanket on the back of the chair and the tag blanket was a gift from my cousin!DSC09922

Above the chair is a shelf we purchased from Ikea that holds a few baskets for storage. My sister, Mindi, made the banner below for one of my baby showers! Once we pick out her name I was going to re-arrange the letters to spell out her name. I picked up the calendar at Hallmark. A friend I scrapbook with said she used one to jot down notes on each day of what baby did and it came in super hand when she went back to do her little guy’s scrapbook!DSC09923

Here is her changing station. We used a dresser we already had and just added the changing pad to the top. The cover on the changing pad is from Etsy (one of my favorite sites!!). To the left of the changing station is her hamper and to the right is the much needed Diaper Genie! The curtains were a set of 2 black out, floor length panels from Target that Kyle’s mom hemmed into 4 curtains to cover the 2 windows in the nursery. DSC09924

You’ve seen her closet here! It’s much fuller now! LOVE it!!DSC09926

To the right of the closet is a bookshelf with cubbies & storage for her already growing book collection! Above the shelf is another owl from my friend, Kim. Hanging on the wall is a scrapbook page display frame I got as a birthday gift from my sister Mindi a few years ago. I think it worked perfect in her room to display her shower invite & other memorabilia. DSC09927

Behind the door is the bow holder I made. Kyle hung some hooks to store the diaper bag and her cute little robes!DSC09929

We are ready for her arrival…hospital bag all packed & ready to go!!DSC09930

And just for the fun of it I included a video tour of her nursery too! We just got our video camera and had to test it out! Smile
