The Nursery-any plans?

Hi ladies,

Don't know about you but I cannot WAIT to start nesting! I won't start until I feel safe to (I actually need to get pg first!!) but in the meantime I've been thinking about it a lot.

We have a two bed Edwardian place so not masses of room-the one room we don't sleep in is used as a walk in wardrobe/dumping ground/office so eventually we'll need to downsize what's in there to make room for a cot and changing unit etc. I can't get ENOUGH of Etsy though-got some gorgeous baby things on there. Really loving the idea of a wall transfer right now:

And I'm going to make a gorgeous patchwork quilt to keep me occupied in the evenings...

What plans do you have?

  • What sort of quilt are you making? Are you knitting it, or is it lots of stitching? Either way, i thik thats amazing, id love to be more like that.

    I love that transfer, ive been looking at alot of things like that, i saw a bunch in easy living a while ago.

    Etsy is more addictive than ebay!!

    I dont think im doing anything right now. Hmmm but you have given me some ideas!!!

  • I haven't really planned much about the nursery or design yet. Keep popping on websites lol but not really any firm ideas. Seen a high chair I want - was trying to find a link but can't remember where it is. It is used by all the hollywood a-listers and basially can be used from birth to 4 years. It's about #270 though!

    Our nursery is all clean and tidy just ready to be decorated and put baby stuff in!
  • hi,

    that transfer is amazing velvet quilt!
    i am going to be knitting a quilt or blanket type thing, which will keep me occupied!
    my OH wants to paint a muriel on one wall - but what it is will depend on the sex, once we find out.

    our nursery is currently the cats 'bedroom' - so not sure they will be best pleased to be chucked out! xx
  • LivvyS-hahahahaha! yes, our two cats also use our office/dumping ground for sleeping...on top of the wardrobe...on mine and hubby's desk-you name it!

    We're actually in the process of finishing decorating the house so we have to start thinking about how we're going to utilize the space we'll use as a nursery pretty soon-my FIL is a builder and he's being doing bits and pieces on the house as and when we could afford it.

    I really love the idea of fresh white walls with one yellow wall perhaps...maybe some grey accents (I love that yellow and grey combination!) and some kind of wall transfer. I think we'll keep it quite sex neutral anyway as we're not into heavy boy/girl stuff.

    I will be sewing the quilt on my little sewing machine. So far I've used it to make a few cushion covers for our bedroom and general clothes maintenance so I'm excited to be able to start collecting fabrics as soon as we get a BFP!!!! EEEEEEK!!!!!
  • Oh yes, this is somehting that I have definetly given a lot of thought to!

    We have my brother living with us at the moment, but he knows that he has to move out soon! The carpet is cream (silly colour really, but no one was supposed to be in there!), so I've painted the walls a dark beigey colour as I really like the netural colours look.

    I am in love with Loved and Adored range http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Babies-R-Us/Nursery/Coordinated-Bedding-Ranges/Loved-and-Adored-CotCotbed-Bedding-Set(0070011)

    and also really love the I love my bear range http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Babies-R-Us/Nursery/Coordinated-Bedding-Ranges/I-Love-My-Bear-CotCotbed-Bedding-Set(0023002)

    I've even picked my pram, sterilser set and a few other bits and bobs!

I have some pics and if I knew how to put them up I would but you will have to just trust me :lol: She had all the bedding/lampshade etc and wall transfers.

    You can't see the wall transfers very good, they were taken on my phone but you get the idea. xx

    Ah when I was getting these I found all the newborn baby pics and now feel extremely emotional :lol: xx

  • P.S If you get the Babies R Us book, they have a double page spread of all their ranges, it all looks so lovely!
