Nursery Complete

Well it's finally done!  I have to say I had way more fun with this room than I initially anticipated.  I have never been a super "baby" person.  So when I approached the idea of a nursery with the mindset of designing a beautiful room vs. the mindset of creating a generic baby room it became really fun really fast.  Now I just can't wait to meet our little girl.....

About the room:  1.  It's a nursery on a budget!  Our job was made a little easier with the room being so small.  
2.  One thing that was really important to us was purchasing our bigger items with the vision of moving them to other parts of our house some day down the road.  That is, our bigger purchases weren't very "baby" so as to be long term investments.  I also wanted to create a room that we would want to be in (not just baby girl)......this was simply put "more us". 
 3.  You may notice there are no curtains......that's because we are moving within the year (more permanently).  I actually prefer no curtains here because it would be overwhelming for this small space......plus there is character in the old windows.  For all you concerned moms, we will figure some other way for darkening the room during naps.

  2. It's gorgeous! And I agree. The old windows have such character, why would you want to cover them? AND...Eleanore doesn't even have a shade on her window, so you're a step ahead of me :)

  4. Oh my goodness, Heather. I can't believe that's the same room we saw in February! I mean, that's where we took our snow boots off, right? You've done an amazing job of turning that room into a beautiful nursery. I love it!!

  15. Hi heather, I just called sherwin Williams to ask if they carry manual barracks and they do not! Could it have been a different brand? Painter is coming tomorrow...help! Thanks!

  16. Caroline, You could call the Sherwin Williams in Watertown, NY and they should have it on file to give to your local store. Hope that helps, and good luck!

  17. Hi heather, I am so sorry to keep bothering you! I just called the Watertown ny store and the gentleman who answered said it must be a custom color. I know this is asking a lot of you, but would you call them and give them your name so he can look up the color (assuming you have an account there)? I will then call him back and see if he can give me the info on the color for my local store. Their number is 315-788-3130. If you can't, I will do my best to find a similar color but I'm worried it will be too brown or grey! Or if you have another suggestion for a neutral color off the top of your head I would lovento hear it. Your taste is impeccable!

  18. Caroline, sorry it probably was a custom order (the color was up when we moved in, and I got the info from the owner).....I did see this color though and it looks lovely and pretty similar - http://pinterest.com/pin/31173422391394656/

  19. I did try calling, but the store is closed....I hope that other color works out for you:)

    1. Caroline (and anyone else interested)- the Sherwin-Williams Modern Gray is very similar. We just used that in our new house. Hope that helps!
