I finally had the opportunity to photograph Beckham & Stella's nursery last weekend....it's about time...I only announced this project 8 1/2 months ago :-) I have to say, this nursery was not an easy project for me....gender neutral can be quite a challenge....I seemed to want to go all the way feminine or all the way masculine. I am already an indecisive person, but throw pregnancy into the mix and I can take indecisive to a whole new level. Remember all of those fabric combinations that I posted about? As I've mentioned, I opted out of all of them! In fact, the only plan that I didn't deviate from was the furniture plan, which I am very pleased with:
Anyhow...if you are new to this blog, or haven't seen the room when it was in it's sorry excuse for a "man cave" state, check it out HERE.
As a reminder, here are a few before pics of the space:
Good God....I can't even look at those pictures without cringing.
Anyways, here is the nursery today!
The biggest expense were the built-ins on the former tv wall as well as the extended closet. As you'll notice in the 3rd "before" picture, there was a lovely treadmill in a niched corner of the room, which was adjacent to the former closet. We opted to extend the former closet into that niche which gave us twice the closet space.
The drawer space that the built-ins offer have been a life saver!
I had a blast accessorizing all of the shelves, but quickly realized that I need to order some 8x10's of the kids...the only 8x10's I had available are of my husband and I.
One of my favorite items in the nursery is this Somewhere Over the Rainbow verse... I found it on Etsy and had to have it as it's the song that I walked down the isle to when we got married.
And a big thanks to my Mom for helping me bring the nursery together and getting it organized while I was on hospital bed rest.
