Progress on Neil Fisher's Nursery

We been making a little progress on baby Fisher's nursery and with each item we add I get more and more excited. It's going to be a fantastic nursery, if I do say so myself. We're going for a fun "animal" themed space that babies and parents will enjoy equally.

Here's what's been going on:

Brent put up the shades for me. (We'll be adding curtains later as well.)
Here's the piggy bank that I'm OBSESSED with. I mean, come on, ADORABLE, right?

Here's the PERFECT dresser (soon to be changing table) that we found off of Cragislist. The best part was that it had already been painted a dark grey and the knobs had been updated to silver pulls. 
And here's my West Elm owl lamp. I've been obsessed with this lamp forever and it fits our nursery style perfectly.   

I cannot wait to see it all come together. The next big step will be painting the huge armoire and moving it to its proper location. (It was my grandmothers and although I love it, it weighs about 400 pounds so it's a beast to move.) Once we take care of that, I'll be able to start placing artwork, etc. So exciting!

Until next time...


  1. The owl will scare the crap out of Fisher.

  2. That dresser and lamp are to die for! Love that it was already painted that color...
    one tip is that you won't be able to keep a lamp on that changing table for long. We had to move ours off pretty quickly because it became a kicking hazard. We ended up with a floor lamp tucked behind the table so that she can't knock it over. I know, not so glamorous but after you have your child practicality wins over aesthetics :(

  3. Oooooh, or you could get a pendant over the changing table that could be fun for the baby to look at (as long as the light is diffused) as well as lighting! I wish I would have put something above the changing table (i.e. mobile) to distract Adele during diaper changes.

  4. Yeah, I sadly assumed we would have to move the lamp sooner or later. But I do have a mobile project already started to use over the changing table. :) I'm excited about it.
