Olivia's Nursery

As soon as we found out Lucas was a boy, I immediately began decorating his nursery.  When we found out Olivia was a took months before I began working on her room.  Instead, I started buying things here and there that I liked and hoped that it would come together in the end.  I really only had two things that I really wanted for her room and that was a gray glider and a mint dresser.  My husband brought to life the mint dresser by painting a dresser that bought at Ikea and I love it!  I decided to not go with a traditional changing table in favor of a dresser so that the furniture is functional later on.  The Olivia banner is one my husband made.  Yep, he made it!  He also made one for Lucas and wanted to keep with the tradition.  I made the mint pom pom drapes out of drapes from Amazon and pom pom trim I bought off of Etsy.  I'm really happy with how the nursery turned out and hope she does too as she gets older.

Dresser: Ikea (my husband painted it mint and the knobs are from Amazon)
Glider: Target
Unicorn Head: Target
Mirrors: Target
Gallery Wall Prints/Frames: Mostly all from Hobby Lobby
Stool: Hobby Lobby
Owl Basket: Target {Similar}

Getting the Nursery Ready

Slowly but surely baby girl's nursery will be coming together.  As I said in the last post, at this point in my pregnancy with Lucas, his nursery was basically complete.  I must have been insane.  With Baby #2, I will be using Lucas' crib and just a few pieces of furniture.  I'm not going to really go with a theme for her room but just maybe try to keep a neutral and sweet color scheme.  I stopped by Hobby Lobby, Homegoods, and placed a Target order recently and here are the things I picked up:

I love pink and mint together so I couldn't resist those crib sheets.  And anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with collecting ginger jars so the bunny above from Hobby Lobby was a must.  The basket was a Homegoods find.

I love love these prints from Hobby Lobby!  Hobby Lobby was also having a 50% their art and framing this weekend so these were super cheap.  The Paris print is from Etsy.  I'm thinking I may do a gallery wall above her dresser and include the unicorn pictured below.

I was ready and set to buy the faux fur stool from World Market that's around $78.  As I was browsing Hobby Lobby, I spotted the stool above that is almost an exact of the World Market stool except I bought mine for a little over $25 since I used a 40% off promo!  Winning!

So Target completely nailed it with the new Pillowfort collection!  There were so many things I loved and still would like to get.  For Baby Girl, I bought the Unicorn head pictured above.  I'm thinking it will be part of the gallery wall to go above her dresser that I have yet to find.  For my Mr. Lucas, I bought the pillowcase and fox pillow below to go in his big boy bed.  I think he'll get a kick out of the fox pillow!

Tray Decor

Slowly but surely, I am emptying out the boxes in the garage and using old and new things to decorate our home.  Three things I have discovered going through my boxes and new bag purchases (shhhhh, don't tell the hubby!) is that I have way too much of and therefore love too deeply trays, ginger jars, and metallic decor.  However, my ginger jar and tray obsession is off the charts.  Most of my trays actually have sentimental value as they were either gifted to us for our wedding or are silver platters belonging to our grandmothers.  Then there's the Homegoods and Target treasures sprinkled in.  I happen to love home decor posts and/or blogs so I hope you enjoy as well!

In case you were wondering why I am such a weirdo and have a huge restaurant menu blown up and put on my wall, right after my husband proposed to me in Central Park, he took me to Tiffany's then we had dinner at Serendipity's.  It was such a magical night so we bought the menu the restaurant was offering that night and when we moved into our new home, I had the menu framed and put in our dining area.  

The tray above is a gold beauty I found at Target this weekend and the one below is from Hobby Lobby.  The Hobby Lobby tray was green so I spray painted it white so that it matched everything else.  

The two trays below belonged to our grandmothers.  If anyone knows how to clean silver, I am all ears!  These trays could use some cleaning but I don't want to do anything that ruins them.

Below is a frame I picked up at Hobby Lobby over the weekend which, of course, had to be mine because of the sweet doxie that looks like my Mia.  I spray painted the frame gold since the wood frame didn't really match anything else.  Love!
