One thing I knew right away was that no matter the gender, I didn't want to paint the walls. Call me crazy, but I love the tan/neutrals all throughout the house. I'd rather work with neutrals (and save an argument or two over painter's tape) than put up a color that I loathe. So as far as my todo list goes for the nursery, wall color is checked off!
The theme was a tad more difficult to decide on. By difficult, I mean we had two different visions. I was loving the idea of a nautical theme - with navy, white, anchors and maybe whales. Who knows! Jason, on the other hand, wanted all sports everything. Which if you know Jason, you know that's typical. In order to get us both on the same page, we compromised with Navy and White colors, with Sports accents.
We have the dresser that just needs an updated stain - easy peasy. We were passed down the crib from my cousin and it's already dark wood. And probably my MOST favorite thing, the rocker/recliner, was purchased on Sunday. We found the perfect chair at Buy Buy Baby and ordered it right away!
