Nursery Makeover Day 1 - Bedding Basics

UPDATE!
Susie Cues finalist has been drawn. Congratulations!!

Faith M. said...

shared on FB
A lucky winner will be drawn from all seven finalists on Sunday night!



Time to spruce up the nursery. Lil' Bit will be here in less than 8 weeks and we've got lots to accomplish before then! We thought it would be fun to let you in on a chance to
Win a Nursery Makeover of your own!
(Or room makeover if your kids are older than nursery age!)

Each day for the next 7 days, you will have daily opportunities to enter to win your own
Room Makeover!
Each day a different business will be featured for a different element they add to the makeover.

Bedding Basics
Bedding Embellishments
Nursery Organization
Wall Decor
Nursery Accessories
Layette
Amenities

Each of the 7 features will stay open for entries for 48 hours only.
(So check back DAILY to not miss one!!!)
A finalist will be drawn randomly at the close of each 48 hour increment for each featured boutique.

There will be 7 finalist at the end of the week.
At the end of the Makeover on Saturday April 2nd, we will draw 1 winner from our 7 finalist.

Winner will receive $50 Gift Certificates from each of the 7 boutiques we've featured ($350 value) so they can create their own MAKEOVER!

Shall we get started.......?

Here's our bare-bones nursery.
C took an extremely unattractive dark wood paneled room and put up dry wall and trim. (He's quite the handy-man!) Ive been madly painting for 2 weeks (not sure how I stretched a small room into such a big project, but....its done!)
The valances were a Pier 1 $3.50/each steal that my mother picked up for me. The bassinet is an antique that belonged to a dear elderly friend passed down to me when the twins were born. And the rocking chair was a gift from my daddy when I was pregnant with Evie. He and I found it at a garage sale and I bemoaned the fact that Id never had a rocker to rock my babies. Daddy took the ugly dark-stained wood chair, repaired it, stripped and sanded it and painted it for me!

The crib that we've had since the twins were babies desperately needed a fresh coat of paint. And then it was time for the magic to begin...

DAY 1 of our Nursery Makeover is hosted by:
We're delighted to showcase their Bedding Basics as the first essential element to our Nursery Makeover. Look at their adorable addition to our sparse space...
I absolutely love the bedding set which includes:
Crib Skirt
Fitted Minky Crib Sheet
and
Minky Backed Baby Blanket
I must say Im impressed! I found the bedding set that I wanted at an upscale boutique and priced exorbitantly out of a reasonable range. I mean really, who can spend $700 on a crib set? I sent Susie Cues a picture of what I had in mind and amazingly, they pulled it off perfectly. Its precisely what Ive dreamed of laying my little Gabriella in! And if you're shopping crib sets, this is your one-stop-shopping. Add changing pad covers, fitted crib sheets, bumpers or various styles for crib skirts to your custom order at Susie Cues.

The minky bedding is absolute luxury. Buttery soft. Cozy and comforting. I thing it adds a perfectly posh perk to the precious Bella/Cozy print. Im quite certain this beautiful blankie will be the blanket. You know. The one she will still be toting around 6 years from now, tattered and loved!
You'll be amazed by the possibilities when you shop Susie Cues for all your bedding basics! All orders are customized to your liking which means essentially, you get to be the designer without doing all the work.

Choose from dozens of fabric swatches. Playful patterns. Fabulous florals. Mod dots. Preppy paisleys. And of course, marvelous minkys. Then let Susie Cues set to work to create something truly special for your nursery and little one. Lovin' this little Moses basket all decked out in Susie Cues splendor.
So here is your first of 7 chances to win a Nursery Makeover. After 48 hours, Ill announce a finalist. There will be 7 total finalist at the end of the Makeover and one will be drawn as the Nursery Makeover Winner!! Check back daily for a new addition to our makeover and another chance at being a finalist and winning a room makeover for your little girl....or guy...
Check back Sunday Evening to see if you are the Susie Cues finalist.

So So So SO Soooo excited for this giveaway!!! I dont have a wee babe on the way BUT my little almost 3 year old is still having to use the baby bedding from her crib set. Life has just not allowed us to upgrade her room yet and I would LOVE to be able to get her into a big girl room. OR if we do have another little one, it would just be my dream to be able to do it right since we lived in such a tiny place the first go around and I think that baby #2 should be able to have some new things too... Yep thats my story!!!

I would love to win this giveaway! My baby just turned 2 years old and I have no decoration in his room. I am embarrassed to say that I have 2 blankets and a shower curtain hanging in the window. So sad.

Ooh, I love the Susie Cues items! :) I could also use a nursery makeover, because I am having a little girl in two weeks and I really feel like her room is still so plain. :(

What an awesome giveaway. I would love a room makeover for my older daughter. She had an adorable nursery, but I just haven't been able to bring her "big girl" room together like I want. I want it to be sweet and girly, but I also want to grow with her. I just can strike the right balance.

Wow GREAT giveaway! I would love to win the nursery makeover because my daughter is about to move from the baby bed to a toddler bed! This would be a great opportunity for us to get new bedding and also new ORGANIZATION items to make is safer for her if she decides to wonder around her room in the middle of the night! Now that she is almost 2 her personality is showing and it would be great to be able to put things in her room that I know SHE likes!

I want to win this bedroom make over for my daughter. She is really growing up and deserves something that shows who she is. She has a ton of toys and it would be nice to organize them. We are always playing in her room and want to make it feel like a special place for the whole family

Nichole Seiler: IT would be nice to have a change of girl stuff. I've used the same bedding for my other two girls and it would be nice to have something different.

Laurin said...

After two boys and all blue, my sweet little girl could use a girlie nursery makeover. : )

Jamie said...

I am currently on bed rest with my third child, a boy! I have two girls, ages 6 and 3, who never had a decorated nursery. They were both extremely premature, and so obviously, they came to us quite unexpectedly. My unborn son is not due until May, but I have already been placed on bed rest, and we pray that he does not come early and have to endure a lengthy NICU stay. However, being on bed rest, the nursery remains bare. The whole family would love a new nursery to bring our son home to.

The Lambert Family said...

My daughter has to share a room with our new baby due in 7 months and we want something that will compliment either a boy or girk since they have to share a room. This would be ideal!

I have a 7 month old who is my third child and I have never had a crib set, or a cute little nursery just a white sheet and a blanket. I would love to win this.

I would love for my daughter to win this giveaway b/c she never really had a nursery. We lived in an apartment for the longest time and was not able to paint or decorate. We are now in a house and I would love to be able to do this for her.
