Nursery Coming along - Cot now built

The nursery is coming along nicely.  My mum brought the cot at the weekend and her and Mr M built it. 

We chose a BabyStyle Bordeaux Cotbed.  We went for a cotbed as we thought it might be more economical than buying a cot then a toddler bed. 

The instructions said it would take 1 person 30 minutes to build - Mr M & my mum took 34 minutes, with the first few minutes trying to decipher the slightly complicated instructions.

We have Lollipop Lane Tiddly Wink Safari bedding and bumper for the cot.  We decided to pick this as we had an animal theme in the nursery and it was nice and bright.  It gorgeous!! The only problem is the bumper isn't great for our style of cot, the end part has nowhere to tie to so I had to white tack it only the outside of the cot, not ideal.  We weren't sure if we were going to get a mobile for the cot or not but Baby M loves looking at lights.  We decided to get the Tomy Winnie the Pooh Sweet Dreams lightshow mobile.  It has a daytime and nighttime mode - the daytime mode plays the Winnie the Pooh tune and has a lightshow on the mobile.  The nighttime mode plays a lullaby and has the lightshow on the mobile and projects it on the ceiling. 

We have a Mamas & Papas Jamboree lampshade.  Again we loved the colours and the little elephant, this again went with our colour theme and the animal theme.  For curtains we bought Dunelm Mill Jungle Time blackout curtains.  They are great, they really are blackout and will be brilliant when Baby M has naps in the day and when summer arrives!! They are lovely and colourful and again go with the theme. 

All we have to do is put pictures on the walls.  We have some photos that Mr M's grandad took of planes already up but we want to put up some others, we just need to think what and where.
