The Twin's Nursery

I've gotten a few messages from people asking to see pictures of the house and nursery.  The construction of our house was done in October and after we moved in I planned on doing a few posts with pictures of everything. However I didn't anticipate the time it would take to decorate this big of a place. So I kept telling myself I was going to wait to post pictures until we finished furnishing and decorating. Well fast forward two months and I was homebound/bed rest with my pregnancy. So the whole decorating every room has been put on hold. I guess I just need to forget about every room being 100% decorated and just post some pics. I mean lets be honest, now that I have two babies at home the likelihood that every room will be furnished and decorated any time in the near future is pretty unlikely.  
So I figure maybe I can start with one room at a time...and since I've had quite a few people ask for nursery pictures I thought I'd start there. 
It was a little difficult decorating a nursery for a boy and girl. I knew I wanted to do gray stripes with yellow in my decorations. I was afraid just yellow and gray would look too masculine so I also added some pink for Madeline and turquoise for Mason. We only have one crib in the nursery for now. The other crib is in our room now and when the babies move to sleeping in the nursery I will bring the other crib in here also.
 



I saw this on Pinterest and had my step dad put it together for me. I bought everything for it at Hobby Lobby. 

Bookshelves are actually picture ledges from Ikea. 

Love these toy bins by 3 Sprouts. One is from Target and the other I found on Amazon. 
So I love these prints I had made....until I discovered they were wrong. I accidentally put their 1 month lengths on them instead of their newborn lengths. Yeah, I know, but in my defense I was a little occupied in the NICU at the time. So for now they are up. I need to order the correct ones. Add it to the to-do list! 




So that's the nursery! Right now we hardly ever use it since the babies are still sleeping in our room (and probably will be until they're 3 if I have my way! Probably won't get the hubby to agree to that one)!
