Mommy Mondays: Thatbaby's Nursery

Nursery tours are so much fun, aren't they?  I posted before about my inspiration, but here's how it all came together.

 The print in the middle was where we started.  And the guest bed is where we ended!  I knew I wanted to work with primary colors in the room, coming from the rocket print, but it's a little hard to find colors to match!  All the yellows were golds, the blues were navies, and no oranges or greens could be found.  So red it was.  

I contacted an etsy seller about the smaller rocket prints.  I sent her the colors from the print, asking if one rocket could be blue/green/yellow and the other rocket pink/red/orange.  I love how they turned out.  When I was bringing in some baby stuff from the garage I found these little Rainbow Brite sprites I had made when I was a kid.  I thought they'd be perfect with the room and colors. 

I really didn't want to get a bedding set, since I knew I'd only be using the crib skirt, since I wanted white sheets.  But I could not find a crib skirt that matched the colors I wanted for the room.   Except in a set - MiGi Rainbow.  (Which is funny, because  Thatbaby's bedding was also MiGi).  When the whole set went on sale for less than $50, I caved in and got it.  And the matching window valence.

I wanted a rocket mobile for the crib, but didn't want to pay etsy prices.  So for about $10 I made my own.

We kept Thatkid's crib and dresser, but I wanted to spruce up the dresser a bit, so I got wooden knobs and painted little rockets on them.

For long nights, I made myself a nursing corner.  The little nightstand holds breastpads and pump supplies and also works to hold my water/snack while I nurse.  Then of course the glider I end up sleeping in a lot of the night!
