Our Nursery Furniture!

As you read in my last post (hopefully you read it!) we bought a good bit of nursery furniture this past weekend. After a lot of research, a lot of online shopping and browsing, and a lot of compromise we finally took the plunge! We knew walking into the store (for the second time) that we most likely wanted white and raised back for the crib and we had a few favorites from our last visit. After a quick walk through we had it narrowed down to 3. Then I consulted my fabulous Baby Bargains book for safety ratings and whatnot and we made a decision. We ended up mixing pieces from two collections in the Baby's Dream family.

First, the Renaissance Convertible Crib and Book Case in Snowdrift (its not so white white in person):

Second, the Generation Next Double Dresser and Hutch in Snowdrift (which will be used as a changing station) and Toy Chest (pictured in maple but purchased in Snowdrift): 

 We are waiting to purchase the Glider until we are set on wall colors and crib bedding colors but we do have an idea of what we want.  The nursery is not going to have a "theme" per se. The colors will be purple and green, with Green walls (probably somewhere between lime and sage) and purple and green accessories. I really like paisley so I'm sure we will be using that. This is an idea of what we are thinking for the glider (with white piping instead of pink...I would like to do purple but we want to be able to use the Glider for the next baby which could very well be a little boy!)

I have looked and looked for crib bedding that fits my criteria: purple and green (this is the biggest issue...if only I wanted pink and green!), paisley or damask or some other similar print, and NO animals or large florals. We have decided we are probably going to have our bedding made and we are lucky enough to have a friend's mother in law that can probably do it for a good cost.

I can't wait to set up the nursery and Eric is ready to start painting!
