house tour: nursery

Another house update post for you all. This is Louisa's nursery. It's nothing like I imagined or planned but it's cheerful and I do like it, even though it still has black baseboards and black doors... which doesn't exactly go with the color palette in there. Oh well, soon enough we'll be able to replace those things and it'll make a huge difference.
As always, things aren't permanent in here but I still wanted to share the progress. I finally broke down and got a nursery chair. I thought the color was going to be more blue but it's really a sagey green. I was pretty disappointed in the color but the shape is great and it's REALLY comfortable and the price was right (I got it on sale and had a coupon code). I just had to add in some other colors that mesh better with the chair color. Luckily, the quilt I made for Louisa has that color in it, repeated a few times. Now, the color doesn't bother me as much.
I love all the things from blabla kids and got this pillow and cat doll for Louisa's crib. Without fail, she throws both of them out of her bed before going to sleep.
This old, antique dresser is one that I painted green and changed the knobs. It's really crummy and the drawers stick really bad, so I want to replace it down the road, but for now it works. I still need to hang the art (which is a Rifle Paper co. wrapping sheet) and take down the pendant that I saved from her blessing brunch.
The kids' closets are just the right size for an EXPEDIT cabinet from IKEA so I put one in each room and I'm so glad I did to give us a little more storage. Other plans for this room include:

- replacing the carpet
- new baseboards
- new doors
I'm sure I'll change up a few other items as well down the road. For those of you who want to know sources for items, here you go.
