Anyone starting to think about/plan a nursery theme? We aren't really doing a theme. We moved into our house a year and half ago and painted every room. I really don't want to paint again so the walls are kind of a teal blue. We're doing fuschia, lighter pink and white with it. I'm starting to look for things like curtains, sheets, wall decor etc. I want to do it as low cost as I can since with DS I went overboard with the whole crib set etc...which we really never used much of for very long.
I'd love to hear/see what everyone is thinking!
Haven't done a darn thing, although the twins will be taking my dd's room and its already a real pretty lavender color so I think we will keep it that way! As far as a theme I am still undecided. I hate the thought of buying 2 crib sets since I never used the comforter it just hung on the wall. I may just get some cute crib sheets and cute curtains and maybe some sticker decals for the walls.I am slacking this time big time. And there is a good chance I only have 10-12 weeks left ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ditto to first post- I went waaaay overboard with DS and don't wanna do that again!!
Were remodling DS room and the spare room so HOPEFULLY they'll be done in a month or so- then starting fresh on DS room and THEN get to do the babys!
Im thinking of painting a blue color. Like turquoise or aqua or a really light blue- to match with pinks and browns or something.. I guess maybe deep down I have a fear that it'll still come out a boy and I dont want to repaint again.. hehe...
I just saw this set thats kind of cute http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...earchURL=false
but this is the one that made me think of the blue walls http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...prodFindSrc=rv
Trying to do something that can easily be adapted to a toddler room- Brody had ABC animals and I went wild with it buying everything that matched- then as soon as he was ready for his big boy room nothing could be reused- so I figure if I get like plain sheets or hampers and curtains and stuff that could last despite the "theme" that'd be a good idea!
Cait---Love the first bedding set!!!!
I am already in the process of putting together the nursery. With DD I couldn't paint the room because we were renting but I did a pink and brown theme. I painted shelves, letters and got pink and brown bedding. Then DD moved into our room and we moved our bedroom downstairs. When we did that I painted her new room (we bought the house by then). I painted the walls a tinkerbell green with white built in dressers and white closet door. Then I hung pink tulle from the ceiling the walls and pink curtains its super cute.
Anyway I thought if DD got a super cute room Alexis gets a super cute room to. And i can paint the room so that makes it funner. I just got the walls painted last week. 3 walls are pink and 1 one wall is grey. The wall that will have the changing table is grey. The bedding got delivered last week as well as the wall decal I ordered. I also painted the wood letters I got for her name at hobby lobby. I'll try to post pictures of what I have so far if i can remember how to do it.
I'm kind of a nut with this stuff but so far I haven't really spent to much. The bedding set only cost $80ish and it came with the diaper stacker, 2 window valances, 2 crib sheets, the comforter, bumper and skirt. The wall decal was $29 and her letters were $.99 a piece at hobby lobby so a total of $8 and then the paint for the walls.
I hung the window valances the other day, I need Dh to hang her letters above the closet doors. Then I just need the mattress, a dresser and white curtains.
You all probably think i'm crazy but I love it and Dh says i can do whatever I want as long as I don't go crazy spending money.
I'll probably go crazy, but I haven't even started yet. We need to get new window valences and bedding and paint. I might even paint the dresser that has never matched (both the crib and organizational shelves are a chocolate brown and the dresser is much lighter). Or I'll have DH do it.
I can't decide on a color scheme. I'm thinking turquoise, lime green, brown, orange...but not all of those at once. I'm also thinking of doing stripes, chevron, or blocks of color on one wall. We'll do something kind of neutral for the bedding and windows so it won't be too crazy. It's fun to think boy.
This is her name I painted. They will go above the closet doors, a pink background.

The bedding and wall decal (that will go on the grey wall)
Baby will be in our room for the first few months and then after that she will share a room with her sisters, so we will just use my DD's bed set that she had.
Our nursery will likely just be a hodge-podge of leftover bedding. I would love to do a full on proper nursery for once, since I never have had the opportunity to, but we just can't afford it. If money was no object I would get this set, and a bunch of the extras like the hamper, floor rug, change pad, wall border, etc, but for everything I would want to get it would be $350, which we seriously don't have.
I am nearly all done but that's because I'm not sure if I'll wind up going earlier than expected. Since we plan on selling our house once these twins are born, leaving the walls off-white and doing "peel and stick" stickers instead. Since these are b/g twins we are doing a prince/princess theme, I got name plaques from Ababy.com, olive green curtains, blue & pink breathable bumpers, etc. No bedding, just the breathable bumpers which we used before and really like. I'll have to take some pics once all finished but the room is super tiny, smallest room in the house (hence selling and moving).
