Ladybug Nursery

The nursery is finally done and awaiting the arrival of our little one. I went with a ladybug theme. Surprisingly, it was more difficult than I thought to find ladybug items. I'm still on the hunt for ladybug knick-knacks, but I guess I can pick them up as I see them.

The room was already painted a light green. The hubs installed a chair rail and painted the top part of the room pink. The bedding I chose was picked from several choices online - I thought it had pink in it, but I was wrong. What looks pink online is a small red gingham check. I decided to heck with it and went with a pink paint anyway.

The furniture is from Timmy's nursery, and it still in good condition (aside from a few bite marks on the crib - do they all do that?).

Aside from the ladybugs, she's got her requisite pink Red Sox hat and a couple of girlie frogs in the room. If she's gonna be my daughter she's gonna need a frog or two. If she's gonna be the hubs daughter, she's gotta have just a tad bit of Red Sox Nation.
All that's left to do is wait and wait some more. 3 more weeks, as of today...but whose counting. I pray that it won't be 5 weeks!

Wow! It's like something out of a magazine - totally BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the ladybug theme! I also hung the quilt above the crib - it looks so nice like that! Great job!

Oh, and yep, they all bite on the crib (well, at least my two did, LOL!)

That's just TOO adorable!

I love that...Birthday express has a ladybug theme for birthdays if you want to do that for her first birthday.

I just love that and beautiful furniture!!

How adorable! When are you due? We are moving in about 6 weeks and so my new baby's nursery won't be set up until then at the earliest!

This will be the third go-around for our nursery furniture. I think yours looks fantastic!

What a beautiful nursery! I was scrolling through my posts on google reader and yours came up. I thought it was from this other blog I read, one that posts cool-ly designed stuff found online. I thought your nursery pictures were an advertisement!

Then, of course, I read the title and saw it was you.

You all are very kind! We had fun with this nursery. We were starting with a blank room that was set-aside in our new house as an eventual nursery. It's been sitting empty for over a year and now we got a chance to go nuts!
I have such a boys' boy, that I wanted to go really girly - well, as girlie as I can get - I went all out with the pink, b/c I the hubs "let" me. When we first moved in, he said he would never have a pink room - when he saw that we were having a little girl, his heart softened (if you ask me, it was her first step at wrapping him around her finger and being a daddy's girl)!

Lol..sounds like was anything but pink and now her room is a "Cinderella pink"..come to think of majority pink...all this from a guy that said it wouldn't happen to him. LOL

They definetely have daddy's fingers wrapped from that first moment onward...*Hugs* congrats
