    The baby's room is nearly done. I suspect we are about 95% done with it and the only things left are very minor additions for decoration and finishing the crib skirt. You can read more about my inspiration here, but my main goals for the room were to give it a light, airy feeling and to not fill it with theme-y clutter. I have to say that I am very much in love with this room and can say with certainty that it has filled every goal of mine. I really hope our baby girl loves it as much as we do.

    Now for the details:

    I made the mobile from the Ten Photo Mobile at Target. The "ornaments" were made out of some girly cardstock that I found at Hobby Lobby. I got the idea for the ornaments from here.

    The crib sheet was purchased from Carousel Designs, which is (in my opinion) the best baby bedding site around. I bought all of Benjamin's bedding from there and really couldn't be happier with the company. The crib skirt is homemade and the fabric (Amy Butler Fresh Ivory Poppies) is from the Cracker Jack Shack. The crib is a hand-me-down from my parents and was not only the crib Benjamin slept in, but also his Momma!

    This artwork is something very much treasured by myself and Mike because it was purchased while we were living in England. It is a print of a painting of one of our favorite spots in Winchester, where we lived. The painting kind of served as inspiration for the room's colors and bicycle-related items. The other wall hanging in the room with the aqua bicycles came from Hobby Lobby waaaay back when we first found out we were pregnant and even before we knew what we were having. I spray painted it aqua to match the crib sheet.

    The items on the shelves are just a rag-tag collection of miscellaneous baby things that will likely change as we get closer to her birth. The one thing on the shelves that was purchased specifically for the room is the "Keep Calm and Ride On" card. I do plan on painting the frame or buying one that matches the room better - someday. The shelves are from IKEA.

    I purchased the birds from Target, but since they only came in black I had to diy them a bit. I spray painted them ivory, which worked sort of okay. They just rest on push pins, so they're very easy to hang, which was nice.

    So that's it. The nursery is done and now you all can enjoy it!
