Liam's Nursery Reveal

I know I should be sharing details about Liam, but we haven't taken any family photos and it's just been so busy, that I haven't gotten to it.  I have shared a few pictures on Instagram, but have decided to actually share the nursery...three weeks later and I've finally completed it.  I pulled together some last items to really be able to hang, adjust and set up.  I didn't want to go too much with a theme as I know I'll want him to grow into it or next baby to be able to go into the room easily, but I did want to keep it fairly neutral along with some baseball items.  I did hold off on a rug as the floors turned out great and I didn't want it to be too busy!  Here's a list of some items I've snagged to complete the room.

Rattan Mirrors:  I've had sitting in the guest room, but they are from Target
Floating Shelves:  Target (stained a bit darker as they are real wood).  Shelves I'll add and design a bit more on over the next months as I like the room to grow a bit further over time.
Lamp:  Target
Changing Pad Cover:  Spearmint Love
Table:  Found on a whim at Target, as I first purchased this and exchanged them out
Pouf:  Wayfair
Chair:  Wayfair
Lion/Lamb Pictures:  Amazon (found some at TJ's, but larger size) as Liam was born in March!  I liked the March saying, "in like a lion, out like a lamb."
Mobile:  I made, purchased the bat from Amazon and the felt garland from Etsy

I've moved the humidifier into our room for the time being and have also debated moving the white noise machine as well, but we're not doing too bad.  The book collection is growing quickly as I have gravitated toward gifting him books (ie:  Easter) at least until he's older.  I wanted to share the whole room as I know I've given some sneak peeks.  Let me know if you have any questions on any items I haven't listed!

Nursery Finds

A while back I had narrowed some of my searches down to a few items that I knew I wanted but didn't want friends/family to pay full price, so I hunted them down via second hand.  Here's what I snagged up!

1.  Rock 'N Play - scored for $50
2.  Mamaroo - scored for $75
3.  Halo Bassinet - scored for $100
4.  Ergobaby Carrier  - snagged at TJ Maxx for I think $50
5.  DockATot - only if I come across one for a REALLY good price
6.  I also grabbed our crib off of craigslist.  I figured it'd be best to reuse than purchase a brand new one.

I'll share more pictures of the room as it gets pulled together after the birth, but here's a sneak peek of the closet that John re-drywalled, painted and hung a closet system.  I wasn't planning on using it really, except to possibly store some of my overflow of coats/jackets, but then I decided it was best to do so!  I hung the baby clothes, folded the bedding/towels and stored some things in baskets that I've stocked up on over time.  I then replaced the dresser drawers with the stacks of diapers and wipes and other baby items that I didn't want sitting out!  It really helped clean things up nicely.
