LO will be sharing a room with us, and we're in an apartment so we can't paint. To try to set her space up as being separate, we're hanging fabric and putting up lots of decorations from the ceiling and on the wall. We don't have the crib yet, but do have the changing table and a few other things.
What's your nursery situation? How ready are you?

We didn't do a nursery for LO. She has a floor bed and a dresser in her room. That's it!
Baby 2's gonna be in our room with us .. then.. not sure! No nursery though Once he starts sleeping through the night we might put the kids together.

We have a very clean, perfectly painted room...with nothing in it! Haha. Baby has all of two onesies to their name. "Ready" is a distant dream.

Not ready much. We are going super minimal so we have a place for sleeping, black out curtains, a white noise machine, and will get a monitor and rocking chair but that's it for furnishings. No painting, but might try and get some things framed and hung up on the walls.

I'm end of Dec/early Jan. We have to move DD out of the soon-to-be baby's room. I don't think I'm going to redecorate because this isn't going to be the baby's permanent room. I feel kinda bad but I have to remind myself that it's only temporary-ish and babies don't care if they have a nice room or not.

I'm due the first week of December. We're turning our "home office" into the nursery. The room is teeny-tiny. Right now we have a mini crib, small dresser, and a small bookshelf set up in there, and the room seems crammed full of furniture. Our house is tiny so we're still working on finding a place for everything that used to be in the office.
We can't paint either, and honestly I'm not into decorating so I'll be impressed if I end up with anything on the walls at all.

DH just painted the nursery over the weekend and it looks great. The room used to have blue and orange walls and now it's a bright apple green. The next step is researching furniture. Painting the room made a huge difference - I can actually visualize what the finished space will look like. Before we just had the room crammed full of miscellaneous stuff from our move last year.

Our nursery is pretty much done. We just need to get a mattress for the crib. We had BIL do a mural on the wall over the summer. The crib came a couple of months ago.

I'm due Dec 12 but we're planning on moving at the end of January. Until we move, we've just shoved a crib into the office and done no other decorating. I figure baby isnt going to know the difference.

We've got the crib, dresser, and a console table that will be repurposed into a changing table/toy storage. We've ordered the glider. Still need to paint the room and console table, decide on/make/buy bed linens, figure out wall art, clean out the closet, get a rug, and find drapes. Yikes...that sounds like a lot!

Baby's going to share our room. We've bought the crib but haven't built it. We measured yesterday to figure out how to fit the necessities. All our baby gear/gifts are in a pile in the living room for now.

we recently moved so we are using one of our extra bedrooms as the nursery. right now we have all the furniture and basics of the nursery set up. even the decor is done for the most part. but we don't have alot of things that go in the nursery like blankets, diapers, clothes, toys, bouncers etc etc! so i feel unprepared for that. our baby shower isn't until the end of the month so we won't really know what we need till then
