baby Bennett's nursery

40 weeks pregnant today. You get so excited about one date, for 9 whole months, then that day comes and goes, without event. It's so strange to be sitting here, still with a babe in my womb. I truly cannot complain though, I still feel really good considering. Just impatient. 
What else better to pass the time than blogging our "nursery"
So here it is.. Our nursery spans about 3 rooms right now. It's not ideal, but I think it'll work.
The crib is in our guest room. Somehow it all fits. The nursery of my dreams looks a little more black and white, a little more minimalistic, but I'm pretty pleased with how it all kinda fits now.
The mobile was a quick DIY project, one of the first signs of nesting early on. It's just styrofoam balls, wrapped in yarn, and hung by an embroidery hoop. I love it, I hope Bennett does too!
Then we move into our room, where you'll find the bassinet, the rocker, and the changing table.
The floor lamp is a new addition, from Target, I tried to bring in the brass to go with the drawer pulls on the changing table. The ottoman is a Donna Baker DIY from $3 Ikea mats. We followed this tutorial. We're also awaiting a DB DIY lumbar pillow for the rocker. I think this little corner will be quite nice in the morning hours once Bennett is here!

Last, but not least, the changing table. Doesn't that last picture make you smile? me too, me too. 
There you have it, Bennett's nursery :)


  1. I love the nursery. I really love the picture collage. Way to join the past-your-due-date club :)

  2. Lauren - The nursery looks adorable (all the different areas!). I want to put your mind at ease about being induced. Both Hunter and Kelly were induced. Piece of cake :) I did it two other ways and the inducements were the easiest and the fastest. Can't wait to meet Bennett. Love Ya, Aunt Linda
