Baby Max's Nursery Reveal!

Our nursery is almost ready. There are a few things we are adding, but I am ready to show you! A lot of hard work and planning was put in by me and David. It was executed by the help of my family (shout outs to Michelle, Mom, Marla, Chris and James).   
Here is the view as you walk into the room. The room color is painted Iced slate byBenjamin Moore (we used the Natura paint with zero VOC). The Crib is BabiItalia Eastside Lifestyle Classic in White, sold at Babies R Us. Mom created grommet curtains with the same fabric that was used in the crib bedding. I like it since we’ll have to take out the bumper (safety issues) so we’ll still have that pretty fabric in the room. The grommets and curtain rod are from Joann Fabrics. I purchased the fabric via amazon.
The crib bedding was customized and made by a talented Etsy shop owner, Cottage Belles.  The fabric choices were chosen by me (and shell) going through all the fabric swatches on her etsy store and making mock-up drawings. She was super helpful in suggesting a fabric when I knew what I wanted, but couldn’t find it. I am very satisfied with how it came out. My favorite part is the piping on the crib bumper. The Max letters were created by my sister and James and use scenes from Where the Wild Things Are books in the background. David and Mom used some extra fabric to hang them with.
The giraffe and elephant were purchased from Amazon (thanks Dad and Gma). The lime green circles were purchased at IKEA. The book holders are actually picture frame ledges that we bought at IKEA. The Max name books were thought of by my talented sister and purchased via Amazon (I think).
This is the unfinished side of the room. I ordered this Little Castle Glider and Ottoman from (it should be in by the weekend). David made that pillow cover with 2 of the coordinating fabrics to go in the chair. Cross your fingers it will all fit nice in that corner! The dresser/changing table is a coordinating piece in the Babi Italia Eastside Lifestyle Collection. David made an elastic changing pad cover in the polka dot fabric to go on the changing table. We want to put some vinyl on that wall. I was thinking something like this  above the changing table or this by the chair area to tie the jungle theme in. 
Here are some close ups of the crib bedding.
Finally, we have the closet! This is one of my favorite parts of the room. I love the lime green and how it looks next to the blue wall and bedding.  David devised a plan and had the help of James and Chris (separate post on this) to put the plan in motion. I love how it came out. I really want to take the doors off for a while, but Molly tries to get on the shelves for the lovies and toys so maybe it's not a good idea. The shelves, drawers and baskets came from IKEA. The paint is Valspar’s Can’t Miss Lime from Lowes. The clothes hanging rods came from Lowes. We have a majority of the onesies and pj’s in the dresser drawers, but kept nicer outfits and supplies in the closet for now. I hope you enjoyed the tour of the nursery. I will be adding things and hopefully will be completely finished soon!
