The Finished Nursery!

Josselyn's nursery is finally finished & just in time!

It definitely took longer than I expected to finish baby Josse's nursery but the hard work has paid off and it is FINALLY DONE! I had the hardest time picking out baby bedding and then I just could not decide on the paint colors...I guess I wanted everything to be PERFECT so I was a little anal about it all lol. But it turned out exactly how I imagined it...Pretty & Pink :)

I will never forget the day we finally finished the princess crown I just had to have in Josse's nursery. My girlfriend Lisa use to sell these gorgeous crowns so she gave me one of the extra ones she still had. She sprayed in antique white with glitter and added beautiful rhinestones & a baby pink boa on it. Then Lisa went with me to the fabric store to pick out the pink & creme tool that needed to be sewn onto the crown. Lisa's sewing machine is in storage so I asked my amazing sister in law Stacey to sew on the tool. Now don't worry Stacey didn't have to sew the tool on by herself she had an entire team of us to help!!! John, Lisette, Olivia, Lance, Krista and myself all took part in the sewing of the crown. I will admit it took Ummmmm a little longer than it probably should have ;) But in the end it came out perfect and I absolutely love it!

A few of the last finishing touches included adding big pink bumper bows to the bumper and then I wanted to add big flowers onto the bows (I got the idea from the Dimples & Dandelions website). I think John and even my girlfriends thought I was being a little ridiculous, but EVERYONE (including John) loves the new & improved bumper! Also, my sister MaryBeth decided to refinish my old baby carriage! It is a white wicker carriage I got for Christmas when I was 6 years old. My sister cleaned it, resprayed it white, added new pink ribbon around it and bleached the pillow inside if it. It looks absolutely adorable and I know lil' Josse will LOVE IT!

Now I am just missing one little thing for the nursery...the BABY!!! Luckily she will be arriving in less than 2 weeks :)
