Simply the Sims: Nursery Details

Simply the Sims: Nursery Details

Yesterday, I was able to share with you our big Nursery Reveal. If you missed it you can catch it by clicking here. Today’s post will be about the little details of the nursery as well we links of where you can purchase some of the items that are in this room. I’m warning you now, this post is picture heavy. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Crib Bedding // 

Mobile // 

Elephant Head // By Three Hands via Amazon (currently out of stock)

One thing amazing about our crib is that it has two drawers on the bottom. I’m currently storing extra wipes and crib sheets in the drawers, as shown below. I did layer our crib sheets/waterproof mattress pad on the mattress to save the husband and I time in the middle of the night, should Baby S have an accident in the middle of the night.

Rocker //

Metal Cart // Purchased via Meijer ( 

I’m using the metal cart as my ‘go to’ place. I plan on using it in the nursery as well as rolling it with me in other rooms of my home where baby and I are. On the top of the cart I have the blue basket (via Target) filled with some diapers, wipes, burp clothes, receiving blanket and diaper rash cream. I also have a mini clock on the top of the cart so I can make notes of when I’m changing diapers and doing feedings. On the second shelf I have pacifiers and little toys. The bottom shelf contains some disinfectant wipes and a travel changing pad.

Dresser // in white from Ikea

Door pulls // discontinued from Pottery Barn Kids. Originally in red but we painted them blue. You may be able to find them from eBay like me.

Mirror // old from Home Goods

Frames // Target

Vinyl Decal // Target

Orange Basket // 

Blue Octopus Lamp // BuyBuyBaby (it puts stars on the ceiling)

Black Shade Lamp // old from Ikea

Do you want to see the inside of our dresser doors? I organized them the best way that I could. I’m sure once Baby S comes we will need to re-organize them again to fit our needs. A plus about the numbered drawers? If the husband or someone else needs to grab something for you and you know what drawer it is just yell out the Number! Bibs in drawer number 4!

Throw Blanket // via

Ottoman Pouf // DIY by yours truly 

Rug // via Joss & Main



Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked our nursery. I’m finding that it is already calming in there which is exactly what I was going for. I would have designed the room pretty much the exact same way if we were having a girl. I would simply switch out all the blue accents for yellows and blush/coral.

The Big "TO DO" List: Part Three

Part Three of my Big “TO DO” list will be my final part. If you missed parts one and two, don’t worry you can catch them right  here and here. Part Three is solely all about the basement. We are fortunate in the fact that finishing the walls (drywall, etc.) is not on our “to do” list as we were lucky to have a finished basement. The basement is used as a ‘man’ cave for the husband, exercise area, storage, secondary bathroom and laundry area.
‘Man Cave’ area:
To do list:
  • install bookcases from Ikea
  • buy an area rug
  • paint the walls
  • hang sports stuff on the walls
  • install wall shelves
Closet underneath the stairs
To do list:
  • paint the walls
  • add additional storage, possible shelves
  • Overall – use the space to it’s best ability
Second Bathroom

To do list:

  • paint beadboard
  • paint walls
  • add frames around mirror
  • possibly replace /update vanity
  • do something with the concrete floors (currently stained blue)
Storage Room
To do list:
  • paint cinder block walls with Drylock paint to help waterproof
  • add shelving units
  • add shelving units/organizers in mirrored closet
  • Add a craft corner with built-ins, possible a desk?
Laundry Room

To do list:
  • paint walls gray (not shown)
  • add more durable shelving on exterior wall
  • build a table/folding station in between the washer and dryer
This sums up are “TO DO” list for our home. We have only been here 1 year and I’m looking forward to the changes we have planned for our home. I’m wondering how many we can get done in 2014. Of course I will be sharing our progress with all of you.
What kind of 2014 home projects do you have planned?
