Nora's nursery theme was complicated! (It was also prior to Pinterest - what a help that would have been!) I wanted red, green, and yellow to be the colors (since we didn't find out her gender either) and I wanted to do a "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" (TVHC) theme, mixed with lots of alphabet-related items. Back then there was virtually no TVHC nurseries anywhere, so it was a pretty unique idea. (Of course last year Pottery Barn Kids came out with TVHC crib bedding. Of course they did.)
My pregnancy with Nora was marked by one specific thing: SWELLING. I swelled a LOT. When I woke up each morning I could not move my fingers for about 15 minutes at a time (made it interesting to go to the bathroom each time I woke up!) My ankles were non-existent. So I was not going to be creating a whole lot of sewing projects for "the baby's" nursery - it's tough to sew with sausages for fingers! The nursery ended up being simple, but personal, and I was pretty proud of it! :)
The crib is a convertible crib that goes from crib, to toddler bed, to daybed, to full bed. I think it's from Babies-R-Us, and we eventually bought all the pieces from the set except the nightstand (including the toddler rail and full bed rails - glad we did that because this set has retired and you can't get them anymore!)
Nora's book sling that I made for her awhile ago, and the rocker is out in our living room. I wish she still had a reading nook, but she mostly "reads" in the living room while I am doing dishes or cleaning up after lunch. Plus she has a lot more toys now, so it just makes sense to have toy storage here. I also added some wall art about a year ago.
So that's Nora's old nursery! It has undergone a lot of changes (I may post photos of those someday if I can get her to CLEAN her room) but has always been very functional and practical for us. The new nursery is no less practical, and looks a lot different. Hopefully I will get those photos up this week!
Until next time . . .
