Okay, I'm having some anxiety about not having a nursery ready for the baby. Our original thought was that we would just do the nursery after the baby was born (Brian is planning on taking 2 weeks off) but the more I think about it, the more I just can't imagine trying to decorate a nursery with a newborn at home. I just started thinking about how tired both Brian and I were those first few weeks. So, I'm flipping out! I don't want a neutral nursery either which is making it even harder since we don't know if we are having a boy or a girl. So, I've made it my mission to find baby bedding (both boy and girl) with similar color schemes. Luckily the Pottery Barn Kids catalog showed up in the mail at the same time and I came across a lot of girl bedding and boy bedding with the same color of blue in it. My thoughts are to paint the nursery blue and either purchase both boy and girl bedding (and return one later) or just purchase whatever we need after the baby. Then we can decorate the walls to make the room really girly or very boyish. I have a friend in the area who paints mural and stuff on the wall which is another option. So, here's the bedding that I like. Whatcha think?

Sophie Bedding
Andi Bedding
Daisy Garden Bedding
Mallory Bedding
I added a pic of the bedding for kids too because I liked the way the room was decorated - I thought it would be so cute to hang little butterflies above the bed.

Oscar Bedding
Locomotive Bedding

Baby Boats
Benjamin Moore and Pottery Barn have come together to form a color palette. I was thinking of painting the nursery either "Faded Denim" or "Sea to Shining Sea"

The Sophie and the Oscar are my favorites!! Very Cute!! I say if you are up to it....just get it ready and buy both...return one later....that is what I would do. You will probably be glad if it were done by the time the baby is born. One less thing to worry about getting done with a newborn baby and a big sister!

I never did a nursery til they were at least 6 months old. Wyatt doesn't even have one~just basic ivory bedding. Bad mommy!

I like the Mallory and the Trains. And I love blue. All blues.

Just find out what the sex of the baby is for goodness sakes. I can't wait any longer:)

Jen said...

Not like you couldn't get another peek or anything. . .

Megan said...

You could take a peek at the Ultrasound tomorrow! Tempting?!

Brian said...

Yeah. Find out the sex of the baby already. It is pretty tempting.

Just pray about it and tell God that you are trusting in Him and it doesn't really matter what the sex is, BUT He has to understand that there are paint color decisions to be made. You know, the important stuff! NOT!

Not important stuff. FUN stuff.

You guys are supposed to help me pick out bedding - not encourage me to take a peek :P

I think all the bedding is adorable. I love the color blue, so anything with blue in it works for me.
I would paint the room and buy both bedding sets. You could return one or sell it on ebay. You don't want to have to deal with painting with a baby around.
