I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! We were finally all well enough to make it to church for the first time in forever, and we were able to enjoy lots of family time over the weekend.
Baby girl's neutral nursery is just about complete, with 2 weeks to spare! I picked up the crib skirt late last week. I used Jonathan Adler's "Electrify" in Alloy for the crib skirt- it is a large scale abstract diamond pattern that incorporates white, tan, and gray, so it's warm and cool at the same time, just like the Revere Pewter on the nursery walls.
We did a simple box pleat and made sure the skirt touches the floor (that is my complaint with most pre-made crib skirts- they are too short). I will have it hemmed shorter as I lower the mattress when baby girl gets bigger.
I am using the $99 Jenny Lind crib from Wal Mart. I can never justify spending a lot of money on a crib that is used for such a short period of time. I like the simple, clean lines, and it isn't too huge like some cribs that would overwhelm the rooms of our house.
Admittedly, the color scheme and fabric choices for this nursery are not girlie, but stay tuned and I will show you details in which I make it baby-girl-appropriate!
