let the decorating begin.

i'm really struggling right now trying to figure out the exact look i want for mya's room. i've perused a million websites (not much of an exaggeration) and i'm just not finding the look i want. i guess i shouldn't expect another person to have the exact nursery i have pictured in my head right now. nonetheless, that has not hindered me from hours of searching.

anyway, the furniture is all in. i think it's placed where it will stay. now i just need to decorate. i'm at a loss on the bedding. i really just want it to be a creamy, ivory color. no frills or fuss. i also want it to be a reasonable price. that's where it gets tough. but that topic is for a whole other post.

on to today.

here are some things i a start.

a vintage story book and jar (which i plan to fill with colorful buttons or something) and a not-so-vintage "m". and then, of course, the table that they're sitting on. the first picture is a more accurat portrayal of color than the second. (which could bring in a whole other topic of how i've been taking more pictures with my phone lately than my camera. we're not going there now.)
i don't necessarily picture these things staying on this table. in fact, i believe they will more likely be on a shelf on the wall. i am picturing the possibility of a cute lamp or something. along with other things i hope to find soon.

i would also like to find a chair. not necessarily a "nursery chair" for being comfortable when she wakes at night, but something that will just look pretty sitting in the corner of the room. i'm not sure how keen jerry is on my decorating direction right now, but hopefully it will all come together and he'll be impressed.

i do have some prints that i ordered for the walls. as soon as i finish this post, i plan to begin the framing process. again, i have a vision, i just need to get it going.

so, expect further nursery updates as i accomplish small tasks. i'm coming to the realization that even though i feel like i have forever before she gets here, if i don't get a move on, i'm going to have a baby with no bedding and a half-decorated nursery.

be back soon...

That table is A-MA-ZING! And I am for some reason amused that Jerry isn't keen on your decorating direction so far. Why is that? Because you're embracing the vintage glory? :)

I have a feeling I'm going to totally and utterly adore this nursery. Excited for the regular updates. I plan to start posting nursery nook updates soon, too.

Be safe cooking, little Mya!

I've been nursing decorating idea hunting, too. Googled nursery images and found a lot of inspirations. Also found some on's "rate my space", but their site's slow.

PS I know what you mean about find something that's affordable. Check out the price tag and this little ditty . . .

I love the table! And I also love the vintage flair! We added vintage touches to Sebastian's room and to our whole house as just makes things more fantastic! :)
