Operation Nursery: An Update

I am so excited to share the updates we’ve made to Baby Parker’s room! You already saw the paint color and furniture when I posted about that here last month.

I registered for Peter Rabbit bedding and I hope the crib skirt and bumper will pull the look together. But while I’m collecting that I’ve been able to hang several things up!

  What I am most excited about is Parker’s name above the crib:

I used Blue Stick (or as I call it “sticky stuff”) to stick the letters to the wall so I could determine spacing before I committed to each letters *spot*.

The window treatments are green gingham to coordinate with the green gingham crib skirt and the finials on the curtain rod are green glass. I love how they turned out! The best part is that these curtains have black out to keep it dark for Parker’s naps!

Parker already has a few books and I started collecting them in a basket I placed by the window.

Eventually I will fill these shelves with small accessories and favorite pictures. I am planning to hang some framed photos on the wall here too.

One of my most favorite things in his room is the Peter Rabbit chalkboard!! I can’t wait to write little notes on it!

I also really like how the mirror over the changing table turned out! This will be a great spot for Parker to discover what he looks like.

So what’s next? I am planning to hang an old window over the dresser. I am still working on what will go in the window panes… pictures, vintage Peter Rabbit artwork…

I also need to get the dog bed recovered to match the room.

I have found myself going in his room several times a day just to look at it, sit in the recliner, and just be. It’s hard to believe that in just eight weeks we’ll have a baby boy in his room!!


  1. Oh my goodness!!! I love it and can't wait to see it in person!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! You've gotten so much done! I esp. love the Peter Rabbit chalkboard. And great call on the blackout curtains - we had to find out the hard way that it helps w/naps AND early morning wakings. Only took us 14 months, ha ha. But Baby #2 has them ready to rock as soon as I can get the Hubs to help me hang them!

  3. I love it! It's so cute :) Are you counting down the days yet?
