A Baby on the Way and Nursery Inspiration Boards

Just thought I’d share the exciting news…I’m expecting baby #3! That’s part of the reason my blog has been devoid of  any intense craft projects lately. I was much sicker this time around than I have been with my other two and had to just focus on the basics (you know…get kids to school, take a shower, sleep as much as possible, feed children). But the sickness has passed and now I’m itching to make baby blankets and hats and clothes and most of all, to decorate the nursery. 
We have the big ultrasound on Valentine’s Day! And of course I’m going to find out the baby’s gender. I’ve gotta have time to sew and paint and get everything ready! Anyway, I thought I’d share my nursery design inspiration boards. Indulge me… I’m excited!

I know for sure that I will be refinishing the crib. That poor thing was used and abused when it was given to us 8 years ago and now it’s just embarrassing. So I’m going to give it new life with a fresh coat of aqua paint. That’s my starting point and everything else will revolve around that.

Whether it’s a boy or a girl, the room will be filled with fun, inexpensive DIY projects and I’ll be sharing them with you every step of the way. Can’t wait!


  1. CONGRATS! You must be having a July baby like I did, cause we were having our gender reveal last year on Valentines day!
    I love the look of both nurseries. I'm a bit partial to to the boy's version since I have a little guy, but I find it funny that your vision for the girl's is very similar to what I had in mind if we had a girl. We even pinned some of the same things!

  2. So happy for you Jen! I love your ideas in this post. Kid number three has been good for me :). Would you mind re-sending me an invite to your family blog? I changed some settings on my blog and can't sign in anymore.

  3. Congratulations! I've been reading your blog for several months now. I just had our third 9 months ago (wow, has it really been 9 months? goes too fast!) It has been great! A little overwhelming at first, but I have found I'm really enjoying the baby stages this time around–even more than before.
    Love your nursery ideas.
