I kept it to be the rocker in my future baby's room, knowing that turquoise would go with either boy or girl. I wanted it to be the legacy from baby's grandpa, so I could rock my child and tell stories about a man they will only know through that chair.
I chose this dresser years ago when I chose furniture for our guest room. I was thinking that I might want to use it in a nursery some day, so I chose something that would grow with our child. We do have a few more things to hang on the wall over the dresser, but I think it looks cute so far.
Yes, I know it's a little princessy, but I love the gauzy curtains I hung above the crib. I found some scrapbook paper and created the canvas above the bed with a quote from Shakespeare (to sleep, perchance to dream.) We're going to put up letters under the canvas once we bring baby girl home and she has a name. The paisley towel on the back of the crib is what my mom is using to make the bumper pads. It's acutally a beach towel that I found at TJMaxx a couple of years ago and never actually used at the beach.
There are shelves sitting in the crib in this shot, and a little elephant that I found somewhere. I did get a white crib skirt with pink paisley embroidered on it from Pottery Barn Kids and that is on the bottom.
We have some clothes, diapers, wipes, the carseat, the stroller, some bottles, a couple cans of formula and diaper bags ready to go. We don't have tons of things, and we have registered for other things, and we're going to a MOPS sale this weekend.
Now, if I can just get some sleep before baby comes, I'll be doing good.
