The nursery is almost complete.  It's everything I ever dreamed of.  I love being in there.  It's crazy that I am finally a mom.  Like a real life mom.  I love it.  
Here's the room BEFORE:

And here's the room AFTER:
Paint color's are:
Valspar - Polished Silver 4008-1B and
Behr - White 1852
I learned a cool technique off of Pinterest here of how to paint perfect lines.  It worked great!

Canvas prints from Costco.

B for Brown with 3 hearts for my little trio from Heart Strings Attached. 
The crib is the Babyletto Hudson from Babies R Us.  We got a killer deal - $100 off and it came with a free mattress.  When you're buying 3 of everything you look for awesome deals.  :)
The bedding is the Triple Band Crib Set from Oilo Studio.  
 The light is also from Oilo Studio - Double Cylinger Light - Citron.  The owner of Oilo Studio is a friend of a friend.  She was SO generous and gave us an amazing deal on everything.  

 Mommy owl and her 3 babies from Pier One.  They were a gift from my mom for my first Mother's Day.
 The lamp is from Target.  The night stand and dresser are from Costco. 
Most of the frames are from Target and Michaels. 

This piece is from Etsy - Pitter.Patter.Print.  I sent her the baby footprints the hospital does and she made it into art.  I love it.
 I painted this on a plain canvas from  Micheals with the leftover paint used for the walls. 

 Sweet babies.
I originally got the A, B & C just as letters for the nursery - but it worked perfectly for Baby A, B & C.  :)
 We also painted an elephant on a plain canvas.  I saw one online here that I loved for like $60 - way too much - so we decided to just do it ourselves. 
 The first heartbeat Curtis and I ever heard.  Priceless.
I sent the heartbeat ultrasound pic to PublicSecret on Etsy and she cleaned it up for me and made it so I could print it out and frame it.  

 Some of my favorite "maternity" photos. 
 My best friend made me this.  I love it. 

I had my eye on this rocking chair from West Elm.  I loved it, but hated the price ($799).
I found this chair at a discount furniture store for $125.  I really liked it, but it wasn't a rocking chair.  Curtis saw it and said, "Oh, I can make that rock." And he did.  He took the bottom piece off of an old rocking chair and some how screwed it on the bottom of this chair.  It works great! 

My mom made me this cute pillow!

The blankets from Curtis' team at work.  Love them.

Stuffed animals and books from Grandma Cheryl.

Kimberly I Love the room and how yall did it for very little money and made it look like a million bucks. Now the chair that Curtis turned into a rocking chair now who would have thought of that.
