The Nursery

This morning I spent it organising what will be the nursery when the baby arrives.  During the weekend we had given the room a final coat of paint and at the beginning of the week I had glossed the window ledge and skirting boards. 

I assembled the crib which will be used in our bedroom for the first few months, one of the sides of the crib folds down to allow the baby to sleep next to the parent.  The height of the crib can also be adjusted and harnessed to the bed.  I decided that I would leave it in the nursery until the baby arrived. 

Tomorrow the cot arrives which also can be altered when the baby is a toddler into a bed.  I choose the cot in a similar wood colour to the current rooms furniture so that it should work well together. 


I had bought a ship lamp shade from Laura Ashley kids however it doesn’t fit onto my current light and I decided that it worked well on top of the wardrobe. 

I have a small Ottoman which I will be covering in a kids map print which should be useful to store items in as the baby gets older. 

The chest of draws were again reorganised.  Into the following:
Reusable nappies
Towels, blankets and new born clothes
0-3 month baby clothes
Accessories – bibs, hats, socks, scratching mitts and other goodies.


All morning Tinkerbell spent most of her her relaxing and a small part of her time sniffing around and was especially interested in the toys which hang onto the baby bouncer/seat. 

The rest of the clothes I placed into three zip bags 3-6 months, 6-12 months and the last larger bag was mainly snow suits over 12 months. 

This evening Tinkerbell and I enjoyed a well earned snuggle in our basement room (formally known by the previous owners as the garden room, think we need to give out a better name) watching the birds eat from our bird feeders. 


Happy Thursday Friends!
