26 weeks + 4 days

I think I'm FINALLY happy with how the nursery is panning out. After a little more construction, some curse words while sticking up the tree decal & a whole lot of shuffling things around, here's how it's looking at the moment.

I'd originally wanted to lay the Ikea shelves under the window - but hubby didn't like the idea, as he thought it would be too crowded with the rocking chair. Since you guys suggested it too, I overruled him, and we gave it a shot - thankfully, it's a pretty good fit! I'm on the look out for some baskets for it now. :)

There's still plenty of room to move things around on the far wall, so I may end up adjusting the change table and drawers eventually - but for now I'm not fussed. The main part for me was getting everything to fit comfortably, keeping the room neutral and making sure that the crib would be the feature of the wall. I love how the cherry blossoms turned out - even if they were a pain in the butt to put together in the right way.

Now that the basics are done.... I have NO idea what to do next! I started doing a few soapy loads of laundry, starting with baby's linen and sheets - so I made the cot up yesterday. Other than that, I just have to decide where I'm going to FIT all of the baby stuff we've already accumulated. It won't stay this empty for long!

Is that the Ikea Expedit shelf? If so, do you have access to a Target? Their Itso bins fit perfectly in the Expedit. We have that setup at home and it works great. You can see it in the background of this photo (ignore the mess!): http://www.flickr.com/photos/duwaxloolu/8118000401

We're about to order our crib. It's almost impossible to find a black crib at any of the stores! The room looks great! =)

The cherry blossoms look great! The whole room looks lovely, and probably the neatest you'll ever see it again!

I'm a big fan of storing clothes by size in big plastic tubs in the closet. I just stick a piece of paper in there as a label. Easy to access, easy to assess what you'll be needing (especially nice for stocking up for the future when they do end of season sales).
