Stella's Nursery

It's been a while since I've posted - I guess you could say I've been busy with my latest "project"... Her name is Stella and should be here around October 5th! Yay, so exciting!
So my husband and I worked hard on getting the nursery ready. It's not completely done, but enough to show everyone. We still have a few details to get done, but here goes...

Our second bedroom used to be the guest room/office/dad's music studio/etc/etc... :)
So we still had a lot of stuff that need to be stored there and not enough closet space. To solve this we ended up getting the Ikea PAX closet system. We designed it to be half for baby and half for other things. That way we had the space but wouldn't visually interfere with the decor of the nursery.

Then we did a little painting... the color chosen was Silver Screen from Behr. Neutral and subtle.

The rug is the exact color I wanted - It's from Pottery Barn Teen. The twin sleeper is from Crate and Barrel and the changing table from Ikea. The shelves are also from Ikea.
To make the changing table a little less "Ikea"I found the knobs at Anthropologie and the baskets and wastebasket at Target. 

The crib is the Bam Crib from Argington. It can be used as a bassinet too. Just take the sides off and it becomes a little bassinet for those first couple of months. It was a great deal on Amazon - no tax, free shipping. The bedding is from Migi and I found it on Amazon also.

The picture frames are from Ikea and I painted them (actually my mom did!). The big wooden S I got online and also painted it myself. I got those small sample cans of paint at home depot, to make sure I had the color I needed.
