Baby Decor Coming Together

I got a lot accomplished this weekend when it comes to the decor in Baby Girl S's nursery!
Remember my last post talking about all my ideas, especially the ballet theme?
Well, after talking with my Mom she has offered to make the curtains and bed skirt for the room!!
I'm so EXCITED!!

Knowing that, I made a date with my good friend Karen to hit up Mary Jo's fabric Saturday morning.
I was on the hunt for that ballerina fabric I had seen at Bellini and guess what?
They had it!!
It was in a different color scheme.
Yellow and oranges instead of purple and green.
Not a fan..
As much as I really liked the fabric I was a little worried about it being too busy in the baby's room.
I decided to move on and I'm glad I did after I saw this bedding in it at another local baby store in town.
It's cute, just too busy for me.
So, instead I found something a little more versatile!
Here's where I have landed!
This paisley print and pink gingham(and green, it's just not pictured).
The curtains will be double sided with the main fabric being the paisley.
The ribbons will be used as accents for ties and elsewhere in the room.
I'm in LOVE!!

(No worries, I'm still planning on using ballet themed accents in the room, just not on the fabric.)
There are all sorts of options to really give the curtains a custom look.
My Mom will be here in a week and a 1/2 and we'll go over and buy all the fabric then.
After leaving Mary Jo's we headed over to Hobby Lobby where they had all their lamps 50% off.
I almost died!
How cute does all of this look together?
Maybe I'm biased but I think it's adorable.
What is even better about the fabrics and lamp?
Brad won't have to repaint the room!!
I think the blue/grey looks great with everything!
Don't you?
I was originally thinking a pale green but why paint if we don't have too?
A little bit of a closer look.
We're also planning on putting a glider in the baby's room I want this in a pale green with blue piping.
Such a fun day!!
But, I can't end this post without sharing the BARGAIN of the weekend!!!!

Karen and I stopped into the Goodwill store just to see what was in there and I spotted this Moses basket for $8.99.
The bedding needs to be washed and/or replaced but for $8.99 I grabbed it!
And, guess what?
I noticed later on in the day a local baby store these baskets sell for $125!!
Who knew? 
Not me, because I had not priced them out.

All in all, I can't wait to see how the baby's room all comes together.
I'll be updating you on here so stay tuned!!

Sounds so exciting! I love your pick in fabrics! And that's a great deal on the basket! Can't wait to read more updates! Hope you have a great day! :)


Sara said...

Love the fabrics you picked out! should make a pillow out of the ballerina fabric for your glider. It would be perfect! You could even have the green or pink gingham as a cording around the pillow or as the ruffle to tie it all together. :)

I love the fabrics you chose, Dee!

And oh, that precious lamp. You don't have a nursery -- you have a princess suite!

Annie said...

Oh my goodness so exciting! I love what you're thinking! Bet Brad will be stoked he doesn't have to repaint!

Leigh Powell Hines said...

I like the fabric, and I think it looks great with the color of the room, too.

Good finds for you this weekend.

I love the paisley and gingham and they look great with the current paint. You so scored on that Moses Basket! Those things are expensive but really come in handy!

Alayna said...

so darn excited......... love the fabric! my first package for Baby S came in today. Sean said "delivery from". I think he freaked lol.

designchic said...

How the fabric and the moses basket...precious!!

Deviled Megs said...

LOVE the fabrics! And I totally agree with the not painting decision -- that color is neutral enough and no need to paint if you don't absolutely have to.

looking good mamma!!!! doing the baby room is so much fun. i remember sitting in connors room, when it was all done before he was born, and staying for what seemed like hours. it was so peaceful.

love jenny xoxo said...

so cute!! Can't wait to see more :)

Monica said...

LOVE. Don't paint the walls. They are perfect with what you picked out. Lyla's walls are grey and I love them. Her beading/decor is white/cream and pinks. Can't wait to see how everything comes together. I know it will be PRESH!

starnes family said...

OK, trying to catch up. Did you get a new car?

LOVE the bedding and room coming together. Well done. Paisley is SO Dee Stephens. Perfect!

Moses Basket? Total score. You know someone got that as a gift and never used it if it ended up in the Good Will. They are pricey and people pass them don't give it away....someone got it and didn't know what to do with it. Your gain! Love it.
