I am SOO EXCITED to show you the nursery!! ***UPDATE: We had a boy, not a girl! So, here is how I changed it.
It is finally done – all details in place (minus a name banner which I might add later above the changing table).
About six months ago our office resided in the room that is now our Nursery. Here is what it looked like:
And the other side of the room was a MESS!
And the after:
At my first baby shower, my sisters came up with
the idea to have everyone at the shower decorate a letter of the alphabet in the colors of my nursery – Gray, Yellow, and Pink. It turned out SO CUTE!
I found this frame (on the right) at a garage sale, and my husband spray painted it yellow.
Our Baby Girl’s name starts with an A, so we put her initials on either side.
It hangs above our crib and next to our dresser/changing table:
Our lovely white crib, and the beautiful quilt made by my sister-in-law, Gabi!!
Here is our changing table area. Doesn’t the dresser look so much better painted white? The blank wall behind the giraffe will have a banner with Baby Girl’s name after she is born.
Remember when I talked about a solution for not finding the right sized dresser pulls? Found the answer on Pinterest!! Aren’t they adorable? The horse rocker below is from when my husband was a baby. One of his Dad’s co-workers made it for Matt. Now we have it for Baby Girl!
The dresser holds our cloth diapers, burp rags, blankets, swaddles, and extra crib sheet:
You might have seen our DIY Baby Armoire before that holds all of Baby Girl’s clothes. Isn’t it ADORABLE!? We also have my homemade version of a headband holder hanging on the wall – and room for more!
Next to the DIY Baby Armoire is the glider with a little side table (for momma’s drinks and reading material). No, I never did get the glider covered like originally planned, but with the curtains and everything else I think the light blue blends with the room. Who knows, I may eventually still do it. We found a small table for pretty cheap at Walmart that Matt used homemade chalk paint to cover it so that it matched the room – love the white!
On the other side of the room we have a big 4 by 4 expedit cabinet from IKEA (which I got off of Craigslist). Follow this link to see a close up of the lamp I added gray and yellow ribbon to. For now the cabinet contains baskets of toys, shoes, bottle and feeding supplies, some books, and our baby carriers. There is still plenty of free space to fill as baby gets older and needs different things.
The Nursery is now my favorite room in the house!! Check out the full reveal pictures!
We are ready for Baby Girl!!
Linking up at these parties!
