The Nursery!

We finally finished the nursery with only one day to spare. I have to say I'm so in love.  I think it's perfect!

The decals are a mix of a big set from Wal-Mart and a smaller one from Target. They aren't exactly what I wanted but since we rent I just went with the cheapest, but prettiest options. Each girl has an owl over the head of her crib, lots of animals and flowers to look at. I know they won't even know what it is but I can't wait for them to see it.

My mom handpainted the rocking chair for me when I was a toddler.

I created a little reading nook in the space between the closet and Viv's crib. Well, it's less of a reading nook and more of a show of things I want my girls to have from my life! The shelf on top is full of my favorite books from my own childhood, all that's missing is my Goodnight Moon which my mom still has.  On the bottom shelf we put the woodland forest decorations Heather and the daycare kids gave us, their books and toys and the wish upon a star box my mom painted me. I guess this area is more for me than them if I'm being honest. I have to utilize my pinterest addiction somehow!

I love the cribs and changing table we got. We didn't look too hard, I knew I wanted the modern look and we were so lucky to score the Baby Mod Modena set from Wal-Mart.  I was originally going to use an old, low dresser but it wouldn't fit in the room. This is perfect and beautiful

 And finally the closet I'm pretty proud of. With such limited space in our house I needed a way to keep the girls' things together and organized. The left side is full of future stuff (toys, clothes, my childcare books) and the right side has all our baby gear like blankets, diapers, wipes, wraps, and my cloth diaper stash.

I am just so happy with it and I cannot wait to see my little girls in their cribs or to change their cloth diapers on there!

How did you handle a small nursery (even better, how did you do with with twins!?)
