Nursery is Finished...And It's the Nicest Room in Our House

For the past 4 or 5 years I have been eying these chairs and for those of you who know me...you have heard about them often. Well, it is here and delivered and about to be assembled.
Oliver thought that he would be the first to try out the chair - but that was not happening! Here is me sitting in the chair and testing it out (yep I even fit at 36+ weeks pregnant).
Here is Oliver calling his mom at almost 11 pm to tell her how excited he was that the nursery is finally finished - she thought it was too late to drive over and see it - but hopefully she'll make it out soon. It is the nicest cleanest room in our house! Every wall, baseboard, handle, closet piece, door, etc have been wiped with Clorox and you can see the beautiful new coat of paint. I actually hate the paint color in the rest of our house - it isn't bad to most people - just not my taste and this is the first painting that we have done since we moved in. We figure if we do one room a year for the next 10 years then our house will be pretty amazing!
Here's the view from the window seat toward the closet.
Here is the awesome chair!
Now you can see the window seat (I am currently covering the pad and will post another picture when that is done) and her changing table and her dresser.
I decided that the lighting is kind of weird - probably 'cause I took the pics at 11 pm at night. But you are welcome to stop in anytime to see how awesome it looks. It turned out beautifully!

The nursery looks so cute! You guys did a great job! BUT, what happened to letting Anamarie and I paint?! Oh well, I don't do straight lines anyway. It really looks awesome! I have found that the nursery at my house is my favorite room too! You'll find yourself spending a lot of time there soon! =)

Is it rude to compliment you on the fabulousness of your nursery and admit jealousy at the same time?!?! We never had a room that put together for the arrival of a new little one. Darling, darling, darling. Such a relief. She'll enjoy along with you and Oliver for years to come.
