The start to Bailey's baby room

I owe a big thank to my mother-in-law for helping me create my vision for Bailey's room! I told her what I wanted and she helped me install all the moldings! We started working on the nursery May 30th...I had Bailey June 5th ha ha (I am very last minute I know!) It started out as your basic blank room canvas (forgot to take a pic but you can just imagine)

WARNING: All pictures are horrible quality! My camera was lost at the time so I had to use my the camera on my horrible phone!! It looks better in person, but you get the idea :)

Day 1: I taped off the floor and painted the baseboards white. I drew a line around the bottom half of the room where I wanted the chair rail to go and she cut the moldings for me. I painted the bottom half of the room white while she painted the bedroom door and the moldings.

Day 2: We installed the chair rail!

Then I painted the top half of the room pink while she cut the picture frame moldings for the bottom half of the room (I wish I would have taken more pictures of us actually doing it!) She nail gunned them in place where we had marked that I wanted them to go.

Day 3: We put paper on the floor and she used her spray painter to paint the picture frame moldings and added another coat of pink to the top half of the wall.

At the end of day 3 we were done with painting and constructing! Here it is after we cleaned everything out of the room

I was then waiting for the wallpaper I ordered to put inside the picture frame molding. I had Bailey 2 weeks and a half weeks early so the room got put on hold. I started on it again on June 14th.

Here is a sneak peak of me putting up the wallpaper in the bottom half of the room... (I cropped myself out because I had just woken up and the kids were sleeping so I hurried in and did a few squares while I could before I got ready for the day so I looked gross!)

Ok, so we just found out we are having a girl and are thrilled. But now I need ideas for her room. I LOVE everything I've seen so far in Bailey's room. So I'm wondering where did you get the wallpaper and I really want to see the bedding and chandelier!
