We started to make some progress on our at home nursery over the past week and I thought I’d share a little update with you. The room is still absolutely empty aside from Winnie’s little dog bed, but I’m happy to report that furniture has been ordered, including a crib, dresser, hutch, and glider.
After much research, we decided to go with Romina as our furniture of choice for Baby Girl’s room. It’s made in Romania from solid beech wood and is Greenguard certified. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is top notch. I love that these are pieces that can grow with our daughter. We chose a warm brown color based on the tone of the hardwood floors in the nursery.
While we originally considered an armchair style glider for the nursery, we decided on a more traditional wood frame style model instead, as it can better accommodate the difference in height between me and Don (I’m 5’4″ and he’s 6′ tall). We learned that it’s important for comfort to be able to easily rest your head back against the chair without having to crane your neck. The Grand Sleigh Glider from Dutailier accommodates both of our heights and is super comfortable. I like that in addition to gliding it can recline and has a locking mechanism. The included ottoman comes with a built-in nursing stool that kicks out to the optimal angle. We were able to special order the glider in a wood that matches the rest of the nursery furniture and a soft beige-toned fabric.
These made-to-order pieces can take 12+ weeks to ship and we’re hoping they make it to us before Baby Girl’s arrival, but honestly, I’m not really worried about it since I plan on having her sleep in our room (in a bassinet) for a little while at least. In the meantime, I plan on repainting her room a neutral color and work on researching nursery bedding and window treatments. I’ll keep you posted with any new updates as we make more progress!
On a side note, the missing Utah nursery furniture was finally delivered! The original shipment never made it to the delivery company so Toys R Us kindly resent the Westwood dresser and bookcase we ordered. They arrived early last week! I’m so happy that’s taken care of so we have the basis of the nursery set up for our first trip out with Baby Girl next summer.
