Planning the Perfect Nursery and a $100 Home Depot Gift Card Giveaway

 Post and giveaway sponsored by The Home Depot, but all opinions are my own.

Although we feel like our family is complete, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about how to plan for your dream nursery with Home Depot’s SoftSpring™ Carpet  and the Bump.   You know how they say hindsight is 20/20?  Well, I wish someone who had been there and done that would have shared some tips with me!

Five Tips for Planning the Perfect Nursery

Choose Colors to Grow With

Source: Hello Happiness

Step One. Choose wall colors that will grow with your baby…  Go crazy with bedding, rugs, and window treatments, but I wish I had picked a little something more neutral for the wall colors.  It is not an easy task to move a toddler out of their room to repaint… trust me!!

Step Two.  Comfortable Seating…   Make sure you have comfortable seating that includes a rocker.  You have no idea how many hours you will spend feeding, rocking, and reading to your baby.

Step Three.  Soft Flooring…  This is something that I really thought was optional… um no!  Your growing baby will fall about nine million times and it is so good for them to have a soft place to land!  Believe me, the Soft Spring Carpet from the Home Depot is so soft and such a great place for you baby to play, crawl, and take their first steps!  They sent me a carpet sample and it feels divine!

Step Four.  Storage… Before children, I never realized how much stuff they required, especially babies!  Be sure to include furniture that can store lots of diapers, clothes, books, and toys… you are going to need it!

Step Five. Make it your own… You may not have a choice where or how big your nursery will be, but you can choose exactly how to decorate it.  Do what you want to do… not what other’s think you should do.  These are memories that you are creating for your little family, not anyone else!
