Nursery is finished

I've finally finished the baby's room. I'm only 4-1/2 weeks away from my due date, you know!

I've shown you the fabrics before:


Step right in ...


These are the cheapo shelves I once tried to paint with regular paint. Up close, they look just awful. But they came in handy.


I selected the crib online, and did a terrible job of matching the wood to my existing furniture. Too much trouble to send back, though.


The crib will turn into a toddler bed and then a full-size bed.

The mobile was custom made by etsy seller Buggalove. I hand-embroidered the dinosaurs in the frames.


I sewed all of the bedding and such from fabrics I got at Warehouse Fabrics Inc. You can see them here, here, here and here. I used Vogue 7245 pattern, which I wouldn't recommend. The instructions were awful and the techniques lacking.

This is a toy holder.


The bumpers are a little loose fitting and need some more work if I choose to use them.


A little hamper, a rocking horse that was handed down to me by a co-worker and a photo holder that I made.


I later decided to whip up this pleated valance for the window. It did a lot for the room, really, and was easy to make. I made a tutorial here.


I ended up ordering the cheapest glider chair I could find at Target, and it is really quite comfy! I made the quilt and diaper holder, too.


The dresser from my guest bedroom set stayed in the room and will double as a changing table.


(My cat really likes the changing pad for a bed.)

JackKnits on custom made these dinosaurs for me, and the colors really matched well.


Now I just need to get the bags packed!


Oh, and go into labor and stuff.

I have been checking for nursery pictures EVERY DAY - and you did not disappoint, my friend! It's just gorgeous and unique and everything looks just right.

Also, for the record, I still haven't finished my nursery. I have clouds above the crib on the wall and want to fold tiny origami birds to hang in front of them. I even have the origami paper already! My point is, good job finishing BEFORE the baby gets here.

I now officially feel like a slacker mom! I never even considered making SO much for the baby's nursery. You did an awesome job!! I love the colors and the decor and the dinosaurs and everything!!! Now that the hard part is over, it's all downhill for now, right? ;) When's your exact due date again?

Very cool. Love the color scheme.

Wow - what a great job on the nursery! You have done a wonderful job - you should be proud - you are so much more organised than me! I have painted the room and am only starting to decorate...

Target was a good idea for the chair - i might have to go and have a look tomorrow for one....

What an adorable theme! Your crib looks exactly like mine! Is it Davinci? Just an FYI, I got a shelf system that matches my crib perfectly and looks like it would match your! Its the DaVinci Roxanne Bookcase and I paid around $260. I got it off with free shipping! Kids wear through furniture so quickly, you might need an upgrade at some point. Good luck with your little one!
