Welcome to my personal nursery design ideas blog! I'm a professional children's muralist, 41, with an almost toddler on my hands now! The blog will be gaining steam in the coming months as I am finding time to do some happy crafting and then blogging all about it. I hope you are inspired by my nursery design ideas and if so, please follow my blog!

Built Ins are IN
The painters and the carpenters began this week. I love my built in wall unit! They had them done in a day, and I can't wait to see them painted pure white. I'm striving for the pottery barn catalog here. Can you tell? If only I had the Pacific Ocean outside the window.
I am having one change, and that is to remove the three rectangle panels across the bottom because it looks too formal for the nursery. I just wanted simple beadboard under the window, but the carpenters got creative with the extra trim. It's difficult to ask a talented craftsman to change something especially when it does look very nice, just not what I had in mind for the nursery. Maybe a library or formal dining, but I wanted to keep these looking a little more casual and fun. Once it's all painted white and I get the hardware on the cabinet doors it will take on just the look I am after. Can't wait 'til Saturday, that's when they said they will be done with everything and the real fun begins. I am normally very hands on, but I can't do any of this work. I can decorate, though!
