The Nursery

I could not wait to decorate the nursery, I had been obsessed with Pinterest long before my pregnancy which led to a lot of design inspiration for gender specific nursery's. Those inspirations weren't so inspirational once we found out we were expecting a boy and a girl since we wanted them to share a room.

We decided to have my mimi make custom bedding and curtains that would coordinate. We went to Hobby Lobby and ended up picking out red/cream chevron material for the curtains and bed skirts, cream/black giraffe print material for the boys blanket, and black/cream leopard with red rosettes for the girls blanket. We used duck cloth for everything and black micro fleece for the back side of the blankets. For the bed skirts, we made the boys pleated and the girls ruffled which gave them their own unique spin.

It is virtually impossible to find a rocker/recliner in a color other than the traditional baby colors without spending a fortune.  We went to Bob Mills instead and chose a red rocker/recliner, which is super comfy!


Since we were having twins, we wanted an 8-drawer dresser that we could utilize as a changing table as well to save room.  Ikea had the perfect one in black brown  and we put in a few white drawer organizers for socks, etc.

While we were shopping at Ikea, we found several Leka Cirkus stuffed animals to decorate the room and a tin trash bin with a lid for their soiled diapers. 

The shelves, frame, red and turquoise drawers and laundry basket are from Hobby Lobby.

We also added a few of our own childhood touches:  one of my favorite childhood books that my papa bought me at a garage sale 'Stinky Feet' and Andrews toy bus.  


I think it was a sign from the Good Lord that we bought a house that had a bedroom with double closets in it.  It is perfection for the twins sharing a room! 

The "I love you to the moon & back" sign was a Christmas gift in 2011. This was a perfect touch to the room, as the saying is one my mimi has always said to me. I actually have it tattooed on my wrist in her handwriting.
