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.
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!
