Nursery is coming along

Good morning and happy Friday friends. I know I said from the beginning I'd share the nursery progress with you and I am excited to announce that we are really close to being done! We've been putting off hanging a few items but hope we can get that done soon. Below are just a few Instagram pictures I posted last week. 

My favorite part of his room is the gallery wall over the white dresser/changing table. I've loved collecting things and crafting and am still on the hunt for a few more items!
Whale- TJ Maxx

I made the curtains myself (fabric here) and hope to bring you a tutorial on the chicken wire frames soon. There are actually 2 of them hanging on the wall but I need some stuff to clip on them.

Pinterest inspired rain gutter shelves ready to be filled with books! The baby room has a Jack and Jill bathroom with another room so there is the perfect corner leading into the bathroom for a reading nook. Thanks to Mimi for the books! (many of them are mine from growing up)


The picture in the frame is Jon and his parents when he is only a few months old. It is a really special picture because his parents got divorced before he was 1 year old and this is the only picture we have of the 3 of them together (Jon's dad passed away 4 years ago so we love having his picture up). 
Lamp- HomeGoods
Whale- TJ Maxx
Frame- Target


I ordered this rug from Target and it should be delivered today. Not sure if it will be the right size or color but I wanted to add some more yellow to the room and since it's a large room, the middle of it looked really empty. I highly recommend getting the Target credit card because you get 5% all purchases and free shipping online! There are so many products they offer online that aren't sold in stores. 

Next week I am picking up a pouf/ottoman handmade by Caroline (she made us 2 for our family room and we love them!) and the rest of his bedding and pillows should be done soon. My baby shower is in 2 weeks and I can hardly wait! I am still in utter surprise and shock that my office threw me a surprise baby shower yesterday afternoon. And I am never surprised! Baby Hart cleaned up, I am so humbled by how many people love our son already. One of the gifts I got was our infant carseat so we can officially bring him home. They also gave us our video monitor, pack and play, and TONS of other gifts!! I can't wait to start setting things up!

This weekend Jon and I have our hospital tour, finishing some stuff up in the baby room (we want to make something with reclaimed wood for over the crib similar to our headboard), and then we are heading to San Antonio for a getaway.

Hope you have an awesome and restful holiday weekend!
