I have just started to tackle my new baby "to do"list. I have gone through 4 large storage containers of Jack's clothes that he has outgrown and chosen what was good enough to be passed on and what needed to be donated. And just this past weekend we finally got the extra room (now Deuce's room) emptied so I can really let my nesting take over as I create his nursery.
I have chosen a theme/ colors for his nursery. In an effort to differentiate from Jack's room, I stayed away from blue, which is hard with baby boys. But I found some nice fabrics in green and gray and everything else has evolved from that. Just like we did with Jack's nursery, my mom will be making the bedding for Deuce's nursery. Jack's baby bedding turned out so nice and it held up great for the two years that Jack slept in his crib. So of course I want the same for Deuce. When we designed Jack's bedding I drew everything out (I guess it helps me visualize) so I have done the same for Deuce's bedding. Here is my drawing, nothing fancy or professional but it will be nice to compare this to the final product...
Here are the fabrics I have chosen for the nursery. I call it a "woodland" theme. These fabrics all happen to be organic, that wasn't intentional just so happened to be what I liked.
Deuce will be using Jack's crib as well as Jack's glider, however I did purchase a new cover for it, so it looks like a totally new chair! The new items for Deuce's nursery will be his dresser/ changing table, nightstand, rug and decorative items. At first the room was painted gray, but I decided to brighten it up and found a nice green color to compliment the fabrics. Below are photos of what I have so far.

Please let me know your favorite, maybe we will just go with the majority!?!?
