Nursery Preview

All I have done so far in the nursery is this little table that is going to be in one of the corners. I thought I would share because it's a preview of what the nursery will looks like. The walls are going to be painted the same chocolate brown that the table cloth is. That pink and brown zebra is going to be the main material in the bedding. It's also going to have a little giraffe print and a little hint of green in it. I think it's going to be soooooooo cute! I got that lamp at T J Maxx last week. I love it. In this picture - it doesn't really look right but it's a great shade of pink and has little crystals hanging down. SO girly!
I have my frame from Leigh Ann on the table and the bow hanger from Jamie (just sitting there for fun right now) and of course "Putting on the Grits - A guide to Southern Entertaining". What I really need is a copy of "A Southern Belle Primer" to go on that table. :-)


This weekend I will start working on a project for one of the walls.
I've got this frame hanging up in my office right now - with vacation pictures of Scott and I.
I'm going to paint the frame silver with pink in it. And then I'm going to paint the mat with giraffe print and put pink scrapbook paper as backgrounds for each picture and I'm going to frame some of Harper's ultrasound pictures (6 wks, 11 wks, 20 wks, and the 3D ones we will have made in a few weeks) and then when she is born we'll put a good picture of her right in the middle. I think it will turn out neat (I hope) and I wanted a neat way to frame her ultrasound pictures. I'll post after pictures next week. Hopefully it won't be too ugly.

It's going to be beautiful Kelly! I love to see little girl rooms since I don't have girls. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Adorable! What little girl would not just fall in love with this room.. I cant wait to see the rest of it! I hope your picture frame idea comes out. Im sure it will be too too cute as well. It has been so much fun watching your blog and Miss Harper. Thank you for sharing all of your joys with us. My husband thinks it's kinda weird reading about others until I told him how much you love his "HOGS". He now thinks it's way cool! We wont be able to watch the game here in Louisiana but He can listen to it via computer. It's so funny to watch him, silly!!! We look like we may get a visit from Gustiv not sure on the spelling? Hope it doesnt zap our power and keep him from his game... that would not be pretty! Take care and have fun fixing up that sweet room. Susie H~

Love it! I love PINK and brown together...really just love PINK! The frame idea is awesome! Can't wait to see it finished! All I can think every time I read your blog is how God has perfect timing and how much you get to enjoy this at this time in your life! Any other time and it may not have been so sweet, but b/c you were faithful...you get to reap the rewards of His glory!

I love the table! So girly!! I had 3D ultrasounds done with my first pregnancy and they are amazing. We decided not to have them done with our second one because we did not find out what he was. I think the frame is going to turn out adorable!!

I've never commented before but have been following your story for a while. I find your blog very entertaining. I don't even remember how I came upon your site but have been hooked ever since. I'm from Oklahoma (living in TX now) and had MANY friends that went to OBU. I love your little girl to be name. SO CUTE! Her room will be precious as well. I have two girls (Madeline-5, Macy 2) Girls are SO MUCH fun.

Harper is going to have the prettiest nursery ever! Those are some of my favorite colors for a little girl's room. I know that you are having so much fun decorating and you have some wonderful ideas. I can't wait to see it when it's all finished and with Miss Harper right in the center of it!
Have a great week!

Amanda said...

I LOVE pink and chocolate! That is similar to what I want for our future daughter's room, just polka dots. I can't wait to see it all finished!

Some Like it Southern said...

I may need to get you to give me an idea for our baby boy nursery... I can not make my mind up at all! =)
I can't wait to see the Harper's room all finished!!!

Jessica said...

So pretty, Kelly! Can't wait to see more! : )

Lianna Knight said...

I am so excited for you...I feel like we are such close friends..although we have only met (through blogging) a few months ago. Harper is beautiful and you are beautiful...the nursery idea is so precious!

I am truly happy for you Kelly...

Blessings!

Ashley said...

Pink and chocolate and zebra and giraffe! Are you kidding me? I would want to live in that room! Sweet Harper is going to be one lucky little girl, on so many different levels.

Amy (Metz) Walker said...

No way it will be ugly!!!! I'm excited to see it...it sounds silly but absolutely can't wait to post pictures of that kind of thing on my blog!

I know God has his own timing on when we'll have a baby, but this is the kind of stuff that I'm impatient for! I keep eyeballing that 2009 Baby Buddies list you've got over there and hoping one day I can convince you to put my name on it! ;-)

Looking forward to the pics!

Pam said...

Love the pink and brown. The frame will be gorgeous, can't wait to see it.

Laura Ann said...

Oh Kelly, the room is off to a great start. It is going to be so girly and so perfect for little Harper, I can not wait to see it all finished. We have lots of pinks, brown & green in Emma's nursery and there is lots of stuff out there you can find to match it. I am so happy for you.

Take a look at my latest post when you get a chance. It will make the Cheerleader in you SMILE!

Pigtails & Pearls said...

I LOVE the start of your nursery! You are so creative!

Jennifer said...

I love it! Hurry and get it finished so we can see it! I'm sure Scott will love that I am saying that considering he is the one who is going to have to get to painting! You were just meant to have a girl!! I want one next, but Josh thinks we should wait until Brody's born before I think about that! :)

It's me Suzette! said...

I love brown with pretty much most colors... but the pink is adorable. I love the idea of your frame with the ultrasound pictures, too! (I never did get to decorate for a little girl - I'll enjoy getting to watch it take form!)

I love the frame project--great ideas! I had that same fabric picked out for Thomas' nursery...only he turned out to be a Thomas, not a Claire-ha! I love the touch of green-adorable!
