Organising the Nursery


Now that I know I have a little girl on the way I think I am going to start organising the nursery. Even though things are up in the air with Mat and I, I hate feeling unorganised and so I will get things ready to ease my stress levels.

As you can see the room is currently a huge dirty mess. I have got a large task ahead of me indeed. So these are my before photos and hopefully over the coming weeks I will be posting the progress shots and the final room.


Unfortunately because I am renting I won't be able to paint the walls so I am stuck with the purple walls. Lucky I am having a girl I guess!

Okay so this is my list of things to do...

Cleaning
  • Scrub the walls
  • Clean the window and window sill
  • Clean the inside of the built-in wardrobe
  • Clean the mirrored doors of the wardrobe
  • Clean over all of baby girl's furniture - bassinet, change table, pram, bouncinet, large play equipment and baby bath
  • Wash the baby clothes
Purchases
  • Change mat covers
  • Mobile for change table
  • Little table/set of drawers
  • Lamp
  • Monitor
  • Storage organisers for the wardrobe for baby girl's clothes/linen/etc
  • Rug

I am not sure what kind of art work I want to hang on the walls yet. But I might just have to get crafty and make some wall art.

Any other ideas on how to make this little nursery more nice and cosy?

OOh lovely :) you are nice and organised.

Elka's nursery has lilac walls - we went with creams, whites and mint green colours. Pics here http://amybloggingaboutbub.blogspot.com/2008/04/introducing-finished-nursery-for-our.html

Congratulations..I was glad to hear that things are going well with the bean and that you are having a girl (of course, being one of two sisters may influence my perspective!).

Prayer and well wishes going your way that you and mat find your back to where you are meant to be. Hugs to you during this time.

Bummer, you're telling me I have to clean the nursery equipment?! It's a pretty room Alicia and I am sure you are going to transform into something wonderful for your newest little lady xxx

Congratulations! I actually quite like the colour of the walls, perfect for another little princess.

I saw these today and thought they where so beautiful! http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/photo.php?pid=294869&id=111440522209006&fbid=134263209926737

So cute! I've seen some cutie pie wall stickers at Etsy so you can decorate the walls without painting!

P.S. I'm expecting too! My baby is due in September! Too bad we're on two different continents, we could get together and talk pregnancy!
