The Twin Nursery

Ok folks, it's taken forever for us to finally finish this nursery and get some pictures of it... but now it's pretty darn close to being completely ready so it's time to post pics!
The first thing you see when you walk in is this sign on the door! This was the banner we held for pictures after our gender reveal. I couldn't just throw it away!

This poster was a freebie from Shutterfly! You may not be able to see the quote but it says "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart" -Winnie the Pooh

 This dresser was slightly hideous when we got it... but after a nice, bright white coat of paint and some new hardware it is looking much better! And it houses some of the cutest little baby boy clothes... all washed and ready!

This cute little basket was in the dollar aisles at Target. It was $3 and it is perfect for widdle socks!

This 9-cube organizer from Target is so handy! I had a bunch of Badger Basket items for Easton's room, but they don't make any that coordinate. I needed something with lots of drawers for all their little stuff so this was perfect! We found the baskets at Babies 'R Us's website and snagged them when they were buy one, get one half off. They ended up being cheaper than any I could find at Walmart, and soooo much cuter! 

This is the vinyl my mother-in-law cut for me for above the cribs. And yes, those are their middle names!! Curtis is my father's name, and James is my father-in-law's middle name. We needed some more traditional names to go with such unique first names, and we wanted to honor both grandpas! I absolutely love how the vinyl turned out. 

There they are above the cribs! 

Let's talk about the cribs... bumpers, sheets, and skirts came from Target. Actually, so did the carpet that you can see in the pic. I love Target, and I love chevron. I kind of went a little overboard with the chevron but I will be spending the most time in there so my taste wins. 

The BEST parts of the whole room, though, are those quilts hanging on the cribs. A dear friend made them for the boys and they are the most beautiful quilts EVER. We originally planned to add a little bit of yellow in the room, but after receiving those quilts, I knew I wanted to incorporate those colors instead. So we added some turquoise into the gallery wall to make the quilts really stand out. 

Next up, the gallery wall!
Everything on this wall was painted except for the anchor, which already matched. The M and T and the square canvases were from Michaels, and I had the starfish from my wedding. I think the oar was from Christmas Tree Shops, but it didn't match so I painted it all white and added the chevron. The sailboat I did by hand (it looks good from this far away!) and the turquose picture with navy polka dots was also an imperfect by-hand project. It's really uneven and I probably should redo it but I'm running out of energy for projects. The "Shhh No Wake Zone" sign has vinyl letters and we just painted the gray. The cute little whale is from my shower! Everyone there put their fingerprint on it and it turned out so cute. 

Here are some zoomed out pics to give you an idea what the whole room looks like! The corner not shown is piled up with other baby things that will eventually be elsewhere in the house (stroller, Rock N Plays, swing, etc.) 

I am not the most creative person, for sure, and in most of my house there is no real design strategy...but I LOVE how this nursery turned out. It's probably the most coordinated and decorated room in the house! I can't wait to put some little babies in those cribs!

P.S... 32 weeks today! We're getting so close!
