Gray and Yellow Nursery Reveal

FINALLY, I am ready!!!  I started this post on April 24th, so you can tell how anxious I've been to share our nursery with you...  Well, today folks, is the day! :)

Decorating Baby C's nursery has, by far, been one of my most favorite things about this season - besides that it will actually end in a real live baby, of course! But, it has also been a lot more work than I thought it would be...  For example, our entire gallery wall came crashing down last Thursday night just when I thought we were almost done.  We lost one poor frame in the process, but everyone else survived (including me and my hormones.) Sometimes fellow bloggers make it look so easy!  ;)

Anyway, I'm thrilled to finally be able to show off our newest space...

But first, before I begin, I want to give credit to these incredibly talented and creative blogger-moms who's nurseries provided my initial inspiration - Thanks Erin (my original model), Katie, and Kelly!

And now...

*Feel free to email me if I left something off or you want more info!

As you can see, we were incredibly spoiled by family and friends with time & gifts for this project.  THANK YOU to all those that made this nursery possible, especially my dad and husband who literally gave up hours and hours to make my "vision" a reality. Seriously, I'd have a lot of ideas and an empty room without you!

I think the room is a perfect spot for a baby... It is relaxing and soothing, but still bright and happy. Plus, if we ever need to adapt it for a girl, a few hints of pink would easily do the trick. We love it!  Sometimes, I even look forward to late night feedings in there... Let's see if that lasts! 

What do you think?
