I'm in the three week countdown to due date and I finished the nursery this week.

The Ikea Gulliver crib and Boliden chair are the only new piece of furniture. We already owned the Ikea Lerberg shelf and Brondby rug and reused it for the nursery. The changing table was given to us. The crib bedding is Dwell Studio's Farm Girl theme. The shelf has Sterilite drawers for clothes. We are going to try to use this instead of a dresser. 

I made most of the wall hangings. There are swatch portraits made from fat quarters and embroidery hoops, a sonogram silhouette portrait, and wall art made from canvases, acrylic paint, and fabric scraps.

I love it. Mostly because of the focus on function. I get a little tired of nursuries that are baby-matchy-cutsey and not at all realistic. It feels like a baby room without being overdone. And the original art will grow with the kiddo. Congrats!

Very cute! I always loved doing up the nursery before the baby came (I have 5) its so much fun! I love the crib bedding desgin and color very modern retro looking, is that the crib bumper put onto outside of the crib?I like how it makes the pattern more visible, I've never seen one put on the outside like that!

I love the fabrics you used for the wall hangings.  Did you make the bedding too?  The bumper on the outside of the crib is a cute idea, too!  I'm surprised they are still included with crib sets after all the hype about them elevating the risk of SIDS.

I'm due on St. Patty's Day, but am hoping she comes a bit sooner.  I'm anxious to meet my little girl!

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, the bumper is on the outside. I didn't want to use it in the crib, but it felt like such a waste to put it away since it came with the bedding set. I can't remember where I saw it, but someone else used theirs as a valance. So if it doesn't work being on the outside, I will probably try that next.

kirby_kurd: Congrats on your baby girl. I'm anxious to meet mine as well. I did not make the bedding but I definitely considered trying to screen print a set because I was having trouble finding things in my price range that fit my aesthetic.

What a sweet and happy looking nursery.  I'm due in May and haven't gotten anywhere near setting up our walk-in closet as our nursery.  (We have two other kids and have no more empty bedrooms).  I REALLY liked the idea of the fabric in the embrodiery hoops.  I may have to steal that idea for my baby's room.  Good work!
