So I just found out that I am pregnant with out first baby and Im already going crazy decorating, we live in a two bedroom apartment so my husband and I gave up our craft/warhammer room to be the nursery.

Im only a few weeks along so we dont know the gender but I wanted to decorate so I chose a unisex theme, owls/woods and here is what I have done so far:

View from the hallway

Right inside the doorway, you can see the pile of stuff Im planning on incorporating as well as the main dresser. The corner to the left will be my sitting area.

To the direct left of the doorway, the crib will go between the wall and bookshelf.

This will hand above the crib "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, it is not a thing to be waited for it is a thing to be achieved"

Close up of the shelves above the crib

Close up of the birch tree crayons above the crib, these are amazing!

Owl decoupage hanging to the right of the dresser

Neat little drawers made from tree stumps!

Two of my favorite photos that I took in Florida hanging in the sitting area

My owl door stop I made last night

And of course, two of our three cats checking out the mystical room of forbiddeness!!

Im debating on how to paint the dresser, should I repaint the main part white and paint the drawers green or should I do a scene on each of the drawers?

I also plan on starching a tree on the wall somewhere to add color to the walls.

I know its not much yet but Im so excited!!!

The worth of a rider is not measured by the times they fall but by the times they get back on.

Congratulations!  I can't wait to see the finished project!  And hmm, I might paint the dresser white and go with the green drawers - you can always  add something to a drawer if it's too plain.

And those crayons are great!  And I love the owl doorstop!

What a lovely natural theme, it's certainly got a lot of potential. Congratulations on the baby Smiley

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
