A Peek Around The Baby's Nursery

As well as redecorating our son's room this year the other half and I have had to turn our spare room into the baby's nursery. To be honest we hadn't long had it decorated before we found out I was pregnant so there wasn't exactly loads to be done. The room had been painted a light baby blue which we've decided to keep even though we don't know the sex of our baby. It's a lovely colour and we've managed to find some cute farmyard wallpaper as a feature wall to match with it. This makes the room look more unisex so fit for a boy or a girl.

From the photos above you can see we have the back wall wallpapered and we have the nice white Boori Sleigh Cot Bed in the corner. It's got a built in pull out drawer underneath which is really sturdy and perfect for storing all the baby's bedding. Accessory wise I seem to have unwittingly picked up jungle items i.e. Fisher-Price Rainforest Mobile, Fisher-Price Changing Mat & Slumber Buddies Eddie the Elephant. No matter though, we can have jungle animals in our farmyard - right!? The room doesn't really have much in it at the moment and still seems a bit bare to me but what it might just need is a lovely pair of curtains maybe.

As well as the Boori Sleigh Cot Bed the other half and I decided to purchase the Dresser which matched with it. Although there is a built in wardrobe in this room we're using it with some of our clothes at the moment so required the extra storage. The Dresser doubles as a changing unit as well which is great as I had a changing unit with Logan and it totally saved my back. As you can see from the photos I've been cramming bits and pieces into the Dresser already but I'll need to sort and organise it all soon before baby gets here.

Last but not least is the little Apple Tree Farm lamp shade which I purchased on Amazon. I didn't want any sort of bright light so going for a lamp shade and energy saving bulb instead keeps the room cosy. And of course this lamp shade matches in with the wallpaper perfectly.

So there you go, that's the baby's room so far. Like I said it still feels like it needs a little something extra like some curtains but when the baby's born I'll also get some personalised bits and bobs such as cute name bunting, art work for the walls etc.

What a beautiful nursery you have set up for your new bundle of joy. I bet your thankful that you had just recently painted and didn't have to do too much work. I absolutely love the wallpaper you have chosen it pulls everything in the room together nicely.
