The Nursery Diaries Chapter 2

There is still plenty to do and we are STILL waiting on the daybed to ship but at least the crib arrived and it's just as beautiful as I had hoped. 
 I really wanted a floor lamp for the room but didn't want to spend a lot on it.  The original floor lamp that I bought for the nursery looked so good in the coffee nook, I decided to go on another search for a floor lamp instead and leave the pretty white one in the kitchen. 
I got this lamp at Target for around $30 and glued ribbon to the edges to match the drapes and the light fixture.
This is the crib that took 2 months to arrive.  I love it even though I now despise the Restoration Hardware customer service department.  Mama painted the gold letters white and I hung them with command wall hanging strips.  The Potterybarnb Kids bumper and crib skirt were gifts from my mother-in-law and the beautiful quilt is a special gift from my Aunt Anita who spent loads of time working on it for my sweet little boy! 
I love the detail on this quilt.  The rope design around the monogram is so pretty. 
 She even stuck with the theme of the nursery and added this precious wave pattern!  I just adore anything handmade, especially made by the people that I love! 

 The small table is possibly temporary.  It was mine when I was little and had chairs to match.  It got a coat of paint and eventually, when Beckett is big enough to use it, I may paint the tabletop with chalkboard paint.
The cute fishies are from T.J. Maxx as well as the picture frame.
The books in the basket were mine.
The "P is for Palmetto" book and the duck and bear blankies are gifts from my mom.
The froggy rattle was a shower gift from Mrs. Beth and Ashley.
The glass buoy is from Southeastern Salvage.
Here is a better picture of the floor lamp. 
The Potterybarn Kids quilt on the chair is a gift from my mother-in-law
The rocking chair was my great grandmothers.
