Nursery - The Beginning

The Nursery in its current state.

Earlier this year, after our miscarriage and before we found out we were blessed with a pregnancy again, we bought our crib and dresser.  Shortly thereafter, my dearest mailed me a huge box of maternity clothes and baby items from her little boy.  A few weeks after that (when we found out we were pregnant again) our sister in law gave us her extra mattress, swing and exer-saucer.  Not too much longer and we were once again blessed with a car seat, stroller and two bases from another dear friend.  Justin and I cannot count our blessings enough.  We are so appreciate that so many love us to just donate their gently used (but still in Amazing Condition!!  And super clean!!) baby items without a second thought.

HOWEVER......that means the nursery is currently a super cluttered mess.  Oh, and we took the door down, so there is no way for me to 'hide' the mess.  Type A personality - check.  Stress ball over mess - check.  Plan of attack - check!

This weekend we will remove all items to the guest room.  We need to paint the walls, take down the trim, remove the baseboard, remove the closet doors and paint the closet.  Those items may not get done as quickly as I like.  After all, we are still remodeling a bathroom! 

My Pinterest inspiration for a neutral nursery that can grow with our bambino:

I love how clean and simple this room is, it would be a simple transition from baby to toddler to child to teen. A good design for the long run.
With a little less Chevron
Nursery: Navy and White
I love the Navy!
Nursery: Washed Linen Plaid Nursery Bedding Collection | Restoration Hardware Baby & Child
Plaid = Love
Nursery idea with navy blue and hot pink. Beautifully modern!
With touches of Pink if we have a girl

The main theme will be white, navy and gray plaid.  I'll add in touches of green or pink once the baby is here.  How did you decide on your nursery?
