I have had a tough time focusing on the good things lately.. just so grumpy and tired. I want to snap out of this funk I really really do!
So to keep me happy and upbeat here are some sneaks of things coming together for Baby J's room.

I think we have settled on painting the nursery a creamy grey - probably the same color in our entrance. The doors I am thinking a really dark dramatic color. Either a dark grey blue like Benjamin Moore's Knoxville Grey or go even crazier and do a dark ebony black like the doors in this house.. so lovely!!

I purchased a couple of new crib sheets. This one in brown polka dot is lovely.

This purchase is one of my favorites. It's actually a shower curtain but I hope to turn it into a curtain.. either for the window that's in the room or to give privacy on the french doors.

I fell in love with this cluster the moment I saw it... I had hoped to put it up in girly colors like the picture but decided that I would still use it and change the colors. I have purchased poms in grey, teal and orange and some white paper lanterns. I am looking forward to how this will turn out.

Another diy project in the works is this idea of a large canvas. The one in the photo is on plywood but while in fargo I found a HUGE canvas on sale at Hobby Lobby. I plan to use a dark grey paint and leave the letters white. I am still working out what I want on it.... I am thinking of song lyrics...

So along with the chair I want from Ikea.. we are well on our way. Still looking for a rug and have a quilt to finish. The date has been set for the wall to be built and the door to go in so that makes us one stop closer to completion. What do you think?

One thing to get happy about today is that it's Friday! Yay for weekends.
All this stuff looks so great. I can tell we search for inspiration in some of the same spots....the shower curtain is adorable!
Can't wait to see these things "Heatherized"!
