Nursery Progress...

Weekend Bloggy Reading

I finished the drapes the other night...

and picked up the white bookcases (ikea hensvik) for $25 each on CL.

I picked up the storage bench/trunk (ikea alve) on a few months ago but it was unpainted so I just gave it a couple of coats of paint and recovered the cushion.

The swivel rocker was another CL find a few months ago (it replaced my old creaky glider). It's covered in a pretty diamond matelasse fabric.

And thank you all so much for weighing in on my crib skirt dilemma! Thanks to this stylish lady's comment I decided that another graphic pattern in here would be a bit much. I found a PBK diamond matelasse crib skirt on CL and picked it up the other day and I think it's working.

I still have a bunch of little projects in this room like:
  • Paint and hang chandelier and make cord cover
  • Back the bookcases and arrange them
  • Hang the artwork
  • Use some of my extra fabric (thanks Alicia!) to sew new liners for the changing table baskets
  • and stitch up one of these diy moroccan poufs



  1. Pam - Your curtains are fabulous. I love both the style and fabric. You are really good at finding deals on CL. It's looking great!

  2. Wow, Pam, it looks beautiful! You make the most marvelous things. . . and you do it all on a budget! It's great fun to read about your projects!

  3. Visiting from the Serenity Now party - your nursery looks beautiful! It is so cheery. I really love the storage bench; it will be great for holding lots of toys. :)


  4. It looks really pretty! Love the color.

    Visiting from Serenity Now!

  5. visiting from the Serenity Now party --
    your nursery looks soooo beautiful -- makes me want to have another baby JUST to do up a room like yours ;)

  6. You have SUCH great taste, Pam! And I am continuously envious of your mad CL skills. I swear, I look, but don't ever come up with much. The nursery is coming along so nicely! :) Thanks for linking up with me. :) (PS. I got your comment the other day, and it made my day! I had a rough couple of days, and I do sometimes wish a few of my bloggy friends lived around here b/c it would make things more fun) ;)

  7. This is so quaint! You did a fabulous job on the curtains :)

  8. So I'm a few months late... but wanted to say I just love what you did with Felicity's nursery! Congratulations by the way! Hope you and the family are doing well. Hope to see you blogging again soon!
