It’s going to be a while before I can share the complete new look because the room is currently occupied by its first tenant.

    Looks very cute so far – love the color orange.

    PS – very excited to see how the basement turns out. We’re in the same boat – two bedrooms, unfinished basement.

    I like the graphic print on the wall. I’m currently working on a nursery (although my little guy is 3 months old so it should be done…) and I have a hard time committing to anything. I love his traditional baby blue walls and we’re trying to a Noah’s Ark theme that’s not too hokey but there is only one print up on his wall so far!

    Love the colors for sure! We have the same lamp in orange for our son’s nursery. It was promptly ruined due to bad placement on our part…make sure it’s not within pooping radius : /

    Did your glider hold up well? I’ve read some reviews that say it comes apart at the seams. I’ve been thinking of getting this one myself, so I’d love to read your opinion. Thanks!

      I love my glider! Still as comfy as ever, and it has held up well. However, I don’t think they’re still selling the same one anymore. I wish I could remember the brand of mine, but I didn’t see it on the site.

    Looks beautiful! I saw this felt cradle the other day and thought of you! It’s really more of a reddish-orange but it made me think of the mood board post you’d done before. Anyway, I’m sure your little one’s space will be very handsome. Can’t wait to see it!

    Thanks for the info! It looks identical to the one I “test drove” in the store, so that’s good enough for me.
