I've been harping on at my husband for months to get the nursery started, when we moved house we used it as a dumping ground, but in the last few weeks we've finally cleared it out and started work on the nursery.  I have so much baby stuff built up, I've been buying for months, stocking up on essentials (nappies, wipes, creams, lotions & potions!) family and friends have also been contributing to Baby P's stash of goodies.  The room itself needed wallpaper stripping and new wallpaper applied, thankfully my auntie is great at papering and came round last week to do it all!  This week hubby is tasked with the painting, and I am hoping its all finished by the weekend so that he can build the furniture and I can put all of the little outfits and bits and pieces away!

As we don't know what we are having I was finding it difficult to just settle with the usual neutral magnolia / soft creams.  I wanted something different, something that was fresh but would suit either sex.  After hours of Pinterest surfing I decided on mint!  Mint is the perfect contrasting colour to pair with pinks, lilacs and creams or blues, greys and lemons.  After sampling a few colours I finally decided on a suitable mint, once the wall was coated I did think it looked a little dark but all my furniture is cream, and it's rather chunky so I think it will be just fine!

My Pinterest inspiration came from some of these beauties….

It's currently a work in progress and I can't wait for it to be finished.  I am definitely in nesting mode as the house is a bit of an uproar with all the decorating and boxes of furniture that's lying around and it's really irritating me!

Watch this space for a nursery update (hopefully) by the end of this weekend!
