Welcome to Baby Land!

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

We have finally finished baby girl's nursery, and we're so in love with how it turned out! Adam comes home from work every day, goes to her room, opens the door and says "Oh, good news! Her room is still here!"

It goes without saying that I am not a professional photographer, so don't get your hopes up that these will look like those fancy pictures you see on Pinterest.

Welcome to Baby Land! (Father of the Bride Part 2? Anyone? Anyone?)


Mirror: Antique mall
Changing pad holder: Hand-me-down that we painted
Dresser: Built by Adam's dad (so amazing, right?)
Baskets: Babies R Us (I'd like to switch the liner fabric to gray)
Dresser knobs: Anthropologie


Changing Table Organizer: Target, similar to this one.


Ballet Shoes: From my old stash my mom kept. I promise they don't smell.
(I didn't take a picture inside her closet, because it's kind of a still a mess.)


Picture: Adam drew this when he was 10 (melt!)
Headband organizer: I saw this on Pinterest and Adam built it. It was pretty easy! Just painted the piece of wood white, took apart and spray painted the clothespins gold, and used wood glue to put it all together.


Crib: Pottery Barn Kids, Emery (Thank you, Nonna and Poppa!)
Rug: Surya, but I got it for a steal on Haute Look
Quilt: Made by her Aunt Meagan and one of my most favorite items!

I bought basic black frames at Michael's and spray painted them gold.

And we're back to the beginning!

A few notes on the nursery…
  • We got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, but this was a true labor of love. I'm not exactly a crafty person, but I'm so proud of how this room has come together! Three cheers for Adam for all of the hard work he put into it, he was very involved. And of course, thank you to our parents for gifting us with the big items!
  • The room was actually already that color. We painted it Watery by Sherwin Williams when we moved in, and lookie there - I loved it for our little girl's room.
  • 2015 is the Year of the Sheep, so I wanted to incorporate a lamb somehow. (Hence the dainty little lamb print on her top bookshelf.) My dad caught wind of this and has since bought all sorts of lamb things - including the stuffed lamb in her crib. So our idea of "no theme" has a subtle one now. 
  • Speaking of the top bookshelf, we're still not sure what we want to do here. Adam and I have finally picked a Bible verse for her, so we'd like to incorporate that. And we have her first initial letter we'll put up there once she arrives. For now, it's just a catch all.
  • I searched high and low for the perfect mirror, and we happened to stumble on this one when we popped into an Antique Mall on the 4th of July. It's a little bigger than I what I was originally thinking - but we love it!
  • The prints above her crib and the rug are probably my favorite finds. They're the first things I picked out and I've been in love ever since.
  • I take that back, my old ballet shoes and Adam's picture of ballerinas are my favorites! 


There you have it! All we're waiting on is you, little girl!
