Nursery Furniture

As soon as we found out we were pregnant, we painted the guest room. It originally was a hideous pumpkin orange color...not very easy on the eyes. And, it was actually the nursery room of the previous owners! Not a soothing and nurturing color, at all. Well, we painted the room in Fresh Aire Choice Northern Pear Tree.
Much more soothing of a color!
The nursery will have to double as a guest room for a bit, so we are going to keep the dark wood futon in the room. Here's what we are planning for furniture...

Hemnes 8-Drawer Dresser from IKEA in black-brown. Purchased last weekend and will double as a changing table.
Jenny Lind crib in ebony. I just love the heirloom feel of this crib.
The bedding will be cream. More pictures to come once it all starts coming together!
