Alexis and Nathan's Nursery

We had so much fun today. We met my mom, Granny, Jenn, and her kids at Pottery Barn Kids at the mall today. I was a little nervous that it would be hard to find two bedding sets that were each gender specific (yes I like blue for boys and pink or purple for girls) yet coordinated. Well we managed to successfully find bedding sets and all of the accessories to outfit the nursery in one hour. Here's what we are doing.

Nathan is getting the Eli's Elephants bedding set and Alexis is getting the Lindsey Butterflies bedding set. We are going to use the crib sheets (plus some basic blue and pink sheets), crib skirts, bumpers, quilts (for decoration), and mobiles. We are going to paint the nursery a sage green (both bedding sets have a similar green in them). We are going to put up three valences (pink, blue, and sage) with coordinating rod hardware. We are going to use three colored (pink, blue, and sage) changing table pad covers. I think it is going to be precious.

Here is Nathan's Eli's Elephants bedding:

Here's Alexis' Lindsey Butterflies bedding:

Here are the valences. The blue is lighter in real life. We are putting the blue near Nathan's crib, the pink near Alexis' crib, and the sage above the glider with the coordinating rod hardware.

Here are the rod hardware pieces.
