Nursery Update!

Hey All!  So sorry I have been MIA lately - We were out of town all last week because my sister in law, Susie, got married and I was her Matron of Honor and Liam was the ring bearer and Scott was a groomsmen :) Yes, it was a family affair!

Yes, we look so cute! :) Liam and I were gone for the whole week and then Scott joined us at the end of the week so while we were gone, he put the crib together and picked up the dresser from the guy we bought it from on Craigslist.  I did a few things last night and I was able to hang them up in her room so I wanted to share the progress as we are today!  
Here is her name on the wall :)  I simply bought some letters for $1.99 at Michaels and painted them pink and then added the white dots because her room is kind of a "polka dot" theme.  Just little hints of that around the room. Those frames are from Ikea for $3.99 a piece.
Here we have our naked window that is in dessssppppparate need of some curtains.  Ok, so I have the ones I want picked out - they are from Target and they are the PERFECT color pink (Barely Pink) but they are out of stock online (& not for sale in store) and have been out of stock for months! I'm getting impatient...  
The crib :)  Love it!  Scott put it together and its from Wal-Mart - we got an awesome deal.

Ok, in this corner will be the glider and ottoman.  Have that picked out as well from Target, just haven't purchased it yet.  But that's the spot for it!

Yay!  Our awesome 9 drawer dresser made from real wood - A Craigslist find from some guy that refinishes dressers and repaints them. - So nice :)  Just need to add some liners in the dresser

Little project I did.  Repainted this frame I had, white, then added the scrapbook paper then taped her sonogram pictures to it - Voila! Instant, free art.  I'll eventually change out the sonogram pics and put pics of her in there.
So there you have it!  It's coming along.  We just need to make a few more purchases.  The rug, the glider & ottoman, the curtains, a mirror and then of course some miscellaneous items.  Also need to add some more art to the walls and get a cute lamp.  We're on our way!

Thanks for reading and I hope to have some more updates soon :)
