Decorating a nursery?

Will you be decorating one? Using a room that is already decorated?

Any pictures or ideas yet?

I am not sure if I am using a different theme for the nursery but I have to redecorate the girls bedroom. For right now they are in separate rooms. The younger daughter is moving in with the older daughter. I am so excited, the bunk bed and the matching bed in a bags are coming in soon.

We will be using our spare room which is already pale green.

The crib is from DS,

I think I might mix n'match it with white and get a white dresser and put a framed mirror above that from ikea

an Chaise I had in my old apartment will go up there too.

Also, might do this to the wall

Bedding, I haven't really thought about yet. Probably a white skirt and just the other simple greens and yellows I had with DS.

we find out the sex on thursday, but if it's a boy i want to do grey and red (the grey you have in the photo above is about the right colour) and if a girl, grey and pink. I already have a white dresser and bookshelf in the room so if it's a girl we will use those and get a white crib. DS's crib is convertible so we will keep using it, plus he is still in his crib.I don't think i will pay much attention to bedding, I paid like $200 for DS's and we never used it. Ever he still won't sleep with a blanket and throws it out of his crib.

Not sure. We are going to put her and Cherish together in the room that is Isaiah's now. We are going to have to paint it, but I don't know what else we might do to decorate. Cherish is a very girly girl, so we might do princesses or something.

We're a baseball loving family and we'd like to do a baseball theme. We're not the most creative people and aren't the greatest painters, so maybe something simple like this:

We'll be using our daughter's crib and dresser that is a dark cherry and getting her something new. We'll be getting a some new crib sheets in blue, red, and maybe one like this:

We're also trying to figure out if we will be getting a new glider or using the one from our daughter's room. I don't want to take everything away from her! So, if we purchase a new one it will be like this:

I love the idea of a grey wall, but I'm too lazy to paint lol!
