Nursery Furniture: A Sneak Peek!

Well hello hello there! And happy Friday, friends.

So guess what's been going on at my house this week? A few furniture deliveries for baby Ten June!

Oh yeah. I'm excited!

As you guys know, David and I have decided to move forward with decorating our little pea pod's nursery even though our house is up for sale and we may be moving before the little guy arrives. You can read more about our reasoning for such here

After weighing the options, we chose which room in our house we wanted to convert into the nursery. Over the last few weeks, I've been working on a few small projects for the room, like my rustic wooden growth chart and the DIY burp cloths I've been whipping up with my new sewing machine. Well, that's not really a nursery project, but it's a fun baby project that's been keeping me occupied as we slowly decorate the nursery! My nesting instincts are kicking in and I'm ready to get this room pulled together.

Anyways, we decided it was time to take the plunge and start purchasing a few furniture items for our little dude. First up? A crib and a glider! I figure everything will fall into place after these big purchases, so we prioritized these two items and actually decided to splurge on them to get what we wanted.

the crib......

Sorry for the sketchy iPhone pic, but this guy is obviously still in the box! After much research, David and I chose this crib from Land of Nod. It meets all safety standards and is constructed out of solid wood. Plus, it's design is classic with a touch of modern. Perfection! We had trouble with the somewhat hefty price tag, but we shopped around and never could find another option we liked as much. And then I saw the crib on Sarah's blog (have you seen her nursery? amazing!) and fell even more in love. When you love it, you love it, right?

So when I found a LON deal for free shipping (which saved us almost $200!), I thought it was a no-brainer. Crib sold! And now delivered and hanging out in Baby Ten June's room : )

...... the glider 

Yes, yes. We splurged on this bad boy, too. Even after I complained about how expensive this piece was and how you could easily DIY a cheaper version. The chair is from Pottery Barn Kids and it's heaven in the form of furniture. Seriously, the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in. 

It's a slip-covered piece that we actually got in the same fabric as our living room sofa, which we absolutely adore. And once David "butt-tested" the comparative Ikea chair to the Pottery Barn version, there was no true comparison. So we waited until the glider was on sale (it still is!) and got 10% off because we've got a registry with PB, as well. Like I said, definitely a splurge that took a big chunk out of the funds we've saved up to decorate the nursery, but it was a purchase that was important to us. I can only imagine there will be a lot of late nights in this baby!

So there you have it! A little sneak peek of the new furniture deliveries in the Ten June nursery. I am lovvvving seeing it all come together! If we can get our butts in gear this weekend, we might even have a few more developments for you in this room next week!

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. Love the crib! So smart to splurge on the piece of furniture you will basically live in for several months. You won't regret it!

  2. Girl, you will NEVER regret having a comfy nursery glider. I'm sure those that have the ikea chairs or other non-upholstered chairs manage just fine but to me it's kind of like living without air conditioning. It's all okay until you feel the other side! Your butt will see 3:30am one too many times to scrimp on the chair! Can't wait to see the crib put up!

  3. It's gonna be so cute!!!! Can't wait to see it when it's all done! Have a great weekend!

  4. When you said "Sarah", I thought you were referring to Sarah Richardson. That's the Canadian in me! Had to chuckle.

  5. So so fun! I'm anxious to see it all put together. It's something you'll always remember doing.

  6. I splurged on my chair too. You will spend so much time in that chair that it needs to be comfortable.

  7. Great picks!!! They're so classic and you'll be able to use them for future kiddos too!! Can't WAIT to see the nursery come together!

  8. That's an AWESOME crib choice. So classic!

  9. If you're going to splurge, I think those are the two things to do it's comfy and safe and mama's comfy, too! Perfect. Love your choices :)

  10. I'm so excited for you, it's great that you bought these two pieces they will last a long time, love the chair and the cute!


  11. Very good idea to splurge! You and your bub will be spending a lot of time in the chair and crib - it's worth it! Plus, you can DIY so many other things which will make the cost not seem so bad.

  12. Well, you splurged on the two most important pieces, IMO ~ you can refurbish and save on dressers, changing tables, bookshelves, etc, but that little bundle and mama need extra comfy high end. :)
