Getting Ready for Baby Jack

One reason that I am so glad it is finally summer is that I can take a break from school and focus on getting ready for Baby Jack’s arrival. Jeff and I got the nursery painted about a month ago, and we got the crib put together, but other than that, Jack’s nursery is looking pretty sparse.

We decided to go with a woodland animal/mountain theme, and I’m so happy with how the wall mural turned out! My husband was such a good sport about painting those mountains for me! We’re going to be adding some glow-in-the-dark stars to the sky part of the mural, and hopefully I can get some vinyl letters that say “dream big, little one.”

My mother-in-law bought us these adorable woodland animal prints. I’m going to hang these above the dresser/changing table.

The dresser is an antique that was handed down to me from my uncle. I cleaned it up and changed the knobs and I’m going to put the changing pad on top, along with some diaper changing essentials.

For this blank wall, I found a pretty easy pattern for floating shelves and I’m planning to make three of them. This will be where we put all of Jack’s books (I’m planning to build him a huge library, so this storage will be great!). I’m going to be working on the shelves next week, so I’ll have a tutorial on the blog soon.

I’m planning to get some bins and boxes to put under the floating shelves for toy storage. I’ve also been looking at an adorable little teepee to put in the corner.

Other special touches include this chair, which came from my great-grandmother’s house and the framed cross-stitch, which my grandmother made for my nursery when I was born. I’ll post some updates as I get things done.

We’re officially down to 7 weeks until Jack’s due date, and I’m nesting, so hopefully I’ll be getting some work done in here really soon!

Let me know what you think of Baby Jack’s space! I can’t wait for him to get here so we can enjoy this room together.

    You know I think you are incredibly talented. Jack has a great mom (and dad). I love the nursery!
