Shabby Chic Has Commenced!!!

So, I promised an update on the girly nursery underway and so I shall deliver...with some cute pictures! I have busted out the actual camera instead of relying on the IPhone, there are some really cute ones of Jonathan teaching Sebastian how to paint with a roller :)


My favorite one!!!
I know Sebastian's personality will change some when his sister arrives but please God, don't make this kid any less exciting and lovable!!!

So those were clearly taken prior to the nursery paint disaster, which has now been sorted out and finished. Next, was the chandelier challenge...there are thousands to choose from. Jonathan did not really want one but I convinced him that the room would not look shabby chic without it so I was on the hunt for the perfect one. They range from thousands of dollars to just a few so it was quite the search. I actually ended up at Pottery Barn Kids. Theirs were reasonable and looked perfect. I got the Mia Chandelier and it only took two days to ship. We decided to get it up in the room so we wouldn't have any more boxes lying around....Jonathan did a fabulous job at hanging it (with Sebastian's help of course)!

Holding the trash can for Daddy!

Exploring the carpet under the rug. careful Daddy, those are crystals!
Once it was all hung and wrap removed, we had to get light bulbs!!! But, I think it looks GREAT, it is a perfect fit for the room!

The bedding is well underway as well...Mamie, Aunt Janet and I worked on it for several hours today and have the comforter ready to assemble and the crib bumper nearly finished....THEY LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL! It is turning out even better than I had imagined and so far has not been too difficult! The crib skirt and curtains are next.

Also, look what Mamie made for the baby girl...

She hand crocheted the entire looks so beautiful against our white glider...the perfect size and color...THANK YOU, MAMIE!!!

Such a character!
