Baby Annie's Nursery

I'm excited to show you all baby Annie's nursery.
It was just 100% finished up this past Saturday.  So funny how the second time around you are not on your game as you are the first.  At least I wasn't.  With Bub's nursery I had it ready a month before she arrived.  Decorating all done, clothes all washed and hung, diapers ready to be used.  With Annie I literally was pushed daily by my sister to even get started.  That no 
energy thing left me with no desire.
I first envisioned Annie's nursery with an ocean theme.  I really don't like thing's too themey but I used the ocean as inspiration.  I saw the room being a seafoam green/blue, a seashell mobile hanging over the crib, yellow accents inspired by the sun.
Need a refresher?  Check out my post here about all that.
Nursery Inspiration 
Well, it turned out much different.
The paint color was the bump in the road for me.  I bought way too samples of paint and could not for the life of me LOVe one.  None were the perfect shade of seafoam and the light in the room made them feel so wrong.  Here is an awful shot of a few of the colors on the wall, which really shows how the lighting in Annie's room is terrible.  And yes I know photography pros.  If I knew how to use my fancy camera better I could of got the perfect pic.  Well sorry friends I only know how to use my camera in auto.  Practice is something I plan on getting to.
So, the color.  Seafoam was out and the lightest shade of a peachy pink was now in.  Color name is Apple Blossom from Ace Hardware.  I'm usually not a pink girl but I LOVed this one and it became my take off point.
Light peachy pink walls, nature theme and yellow/aqua accents was the answer.
