So… The crib is up, mattress in the bed (still has the wrapper on it though), we have a dresser, I made the mobile, her name is hanging in adorable modge podge letters made my yours truly, and I have some beautiful wall art hanging above her crib with a cute vinyl saying once again created by *clears throat* this mama right here!!

What I'm Making Monday

I got a bed skirt to go under the queen bed that’s in the room, and I’m making some throw pillows that match the crib bedding that’s COMING TODAY! And curtain valances I made for the bed (tutorial for pillows coming soon… If I ever finish them).

I got some wall shelves for a corner of the room and I hung them up Friday, and I am refinishing a toy box I bought for $20 on Craigslist.

It’s safe to say the room is coming together from [wanna be] Man Cave to Nursery, it’s really transforming! I blogged about my husband’s love/hate relationship with my redecorating on my Parenting blog, so check that out too, comment if you can pretty please!

But there’s still some things I’m working on. For one, I’m still trying to figure out what to do with this high ledge in the room. It’s so high and there’s so much white between what’s below on the wall and up on the ledge (I’ve put a few teddy bears up there so far) that I feel like I need more up there.
I’m thinking of adding maybe some baskets, and big blocks or something… But I think I need something more drastic… I may even*gasp* paint the wall above the ledge/shelf as an accent wall. Maybe I’ll paint it green or yellow. We’re renting so I’m hesitant to paint but I really am not sure what else to do, but she said we can paint if we want (though me way have to paint it back). I also worry about getting up there… I’ll need a ladder or something and this could be dangerous in my condition.

Now on to something else I added to the nursery recently… I’m cheating a little on this week’s What I’m Making Monday cause while I MADE it… Sorta, some ordering was also involved.

I had seen posts and tweets about this company called Modern Bird Studios. They have a very–well–modern type of art that’s beautiful for your home.

When they contacted me and asked if I wanted to try it out I was soooo indecisive on what I wanted. I knew I wanted something personal, but something that would still go in the room. I worried their contrast look wouldn’t go with my whimsical theme… Boy was I wrong!

Since I like butterflies I asked if they could take this picture I took of a butterfly during a date with my hubby, and convert it into a piece of art. Originally we tried pink and brown. But once I figured out the colors of the nursery we decided to go with pink, green and white! They were so professional, polite and QUICK! And they sent me examples every step of the way!

They shipped them to me in the best protective shields. Really, there was no way I was gonna get a scratch on those things, it took me about 20 minutes to unwrap it all! But I was SO impressed when I got them out and set them side by side. Look how it turned out!So sturdy, beautiful, unique PLUS I took the photo! I think that adds a nice personal touch, knowing I took that picture and it turned into something so pretty and personal for the room, plus it all matches. But the nice thing is they also have pre-designed series you can see on their site, with beautiful pictures you can choose from with flowers, and other wildlife.

Then, wanting to add my own little flair to it I added these bows and hung them on the wall!It’s an illusion though. There’s a nice stand on the back of the picture so it’s actually hanging by that and a nail, then I added the ribbon and taped the bows to the wall (hehe, sneaky I know). I can’t wait to show you the nursery all together once I get it all finished. We’re getting there!

You can find out more about Modern Bird Studios by visiting their website, following @Modern_bird on twitter or “Liking” their Modern Bird Studios Facebook Page.

I went a totally different route with some of my photos, since I was going for bright, colorful, and “nurseryish” but look at these other GORGEOUS styles for your home!

beansmom says:

I think those butterfly pictures are amazing. I would really have to think hard if I would use one of my own photos or not. I do love the blosom series they have on their website. I love the daisy 1 prints in almond and cherry and could easily see using that as a starting point for creating a little girl’s nursery!

I love the butterflies too!!! I also love the beach scene with the children and the blue and white color combo. The ones of the children are adorable too! It would be a hard decision to make! Awesome giveaway!

Hannah J says:

I like the very neutral brown/black. . .although I haven’t started designing my nursery yet (only 9 wks along) so as I get into that I may decide would want something to match that instead! I would use a nature photo as well, probably mountains from back home in Alaska.

Lara says:

I would really have to think about what picture I would do and where I would put it. But when I think of my daughter I think of tulip pink and cappuccino… those colors are so her!

Like what you did with the artwork from Modern Bird. As for the ledge, you could get the hubby to put a cool wall paper on the back. He could use thumb tacks to hold it up so you don’t have to worry about how to get it down later. Then you could add baskets for storage, some cute little trinkets and maybe even some pictures.

I think you should do something colorful with the ledge – maybe not paint b/c that would suck to repaint, but put up some wallpaper w/out adhesive? Just a quick put up … it looks like it’s high enough no one would notice if it were put up with double-sided tape.
I think books would look cute up there – like ones she won’t read until she’s older 🙂

My decorating idea for the ledge: That is a great place for an accent wall. It wouldn’t be a lot to paint, and it would draw your eye up there and differentiate it from all the white below. You could also do the baby’s name in large scale wooden letters. You can get some pretty big ones from Hobby Lobby made of unfinished wood, so you can paint or stain them to look however you want. Another idea: Paint the wall and do a vinyl transfer of butterflies in a contrasting color.

I love the look of the Black and Green color pallette.

I’m a sucker for the black and white! I’d get a photo of our family to hang in our home.

I think the ledge in the nursery is such an awesome way to personalize the room. Some really cool colored vases of different heights and sizes would look great and after baby arrives you could put some large photos there. What about painting just the rim of the ledge a different accent color, too?

What about fun jars or vases in various colors and sizes? You could probably get by without spending a lot of money if you kept an eye on the thrift stores and garage sales!

Can you put children’s hard cover books on the high ledge? I know you don’t like toys, but how a doll display – maybe American Dolls?

Or maybe you can find some large butterflies and make it a decorative display?

I would put safe things on the shelf so it won’t ever fall on baby if the room for starters. Stuffed toys are good but remember after a while they collect dust. Things that can be easily washed would be good. pillows etc. Sometimes you can even get a unisex train that instead of going around it would go back and forth and maybe it could be stationery so it will never fall. That would be great especially if the babys crib or bed is on the other side of the room so they could view it. Another idea is things that glow from the distance or light up at night

I can’t think of a specific picture I would use, but it would have to be a family one. I think I would like to use either black/white or do two shades of brown.

I would do a blue/natural color combo probably and a picture of me and my husband for our bedroom. Unless I found the perfect picture of our dogs then I could use it in the nursery. I also love the new bloom predesigned collection.

I visited Modern Bird’s website and I really like the brown/green and brown/black combos. I would most likely have a picture of my two daughters made into an art piece, since they are my inspiration for everything I do.

This would be a great item to auction off for our non-profit, so a family of a child with a heart defect could have a treasured memory. I’d love to have one to give away or auction off for @tmlhduke!

Jennae says:

My decorating idea for the ledge: That is a great place for an accent wall. It wouldn’t be a lot to paint, and it would draw your eye up there and differentiate it from all the white below. You could also do the baby’s name in large scale wooden letters. You can get some pretty big ones from Hobby Lobby made of unfinished wood, so you can paint or stain them to look however you want. Another idea: Paint the wall and do a vinyl transfer of butterflies in a contrasting color.

I really like the bloom series. I’d go with oranges or browns.
