After four long years, failed fertility treatments and lots and lots of praying, I am getting to design and decorate my own child's nursery!
We found out in February that we are expecting our first little one in October and I am still pinching myself every time I start to think about this.
Being and interior designer made me start thinking about the nursery the second after I took the test...wall color, furniture, lighting, fabrics and accents started to fill my head.
I wanted to create a soft and inviting environment with a bohemian/world traveler flair and a splash of color in the accents...here is where I am so far.
I will post the final pictures after all is complete!
Hopefully I'll be able to get this all done in time!
Wall color: Sherwin Williams- Agreeable Gray
Crib: Pottery Barn- Catalina Cottage Crib in Espresso
Dresser/Changing Table: Craigslist Find (will refinish)
Faux Finish for Dresser: Distressed Gray

This was my grandpa's war chest and we had colored all over the previous paint finish as kids. I am distressing it and adding some glaze and gold accents.
