Preppy Baby Bedding

Our Nursery Bedding arrived on Friday! This is a big deal considering the fact that I spent hours and hours and hours searching for the “perfect” bedding for our baby boy’s nursery. I wanted to find something that was not baby blue or themed. It seems like about 95% of boy’s rooms use this shade of blue with some sort of cutsie theme. I know! It’s adorable. But, I just wanted something a little different.

I searched everywhere from high-end stores like Pottery Barn Kids and Land of Nod to the less-pricey Target and Babies R Us. I looked into custom bedding and I considered making it myself. Basically, the problem to me was that the only things I needed were the crib sheet and the skirt. Did you know that you can’t put the bumper or the comforter in the crib? They are just for looks. In the end,  just couldn’t fathom spending $40o+ on things that I am not going to use.

Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon a post on Ohdeedoh that showed cute bedding from…Walmart!

So, I ordered this adorable Aqua and Pistachio Argyle Bedding Set for…$90 (including shipping)!

We’re thinking of painting the walls the blue shade from the comforter. It’ll look more blue than this sample shows:

I’m hoping to capture the happy feeling of Megan’s daughter, Paige’s Room. I LOVE this room! The paint color in Paige’s room is the same as the above sample, so you can see how it would be a perfect match for our argyle room.

I’d love to find a recliner like the one in this post. If anyone has something I could recover (in chocolate with the white piping), let me know!
