Once hubby and I decided to start trying to expand our family, I immediately began planning our future baby’s nursery. Who am I kidding? I began planning the nursery as soon as we got married. Maybe before. I’m a girl. We do these things. Sorry I’m not sorry. Thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest, I began collecting a plethora of adorable nursery ideas. I never really wanted a theme for the nursery. I didn’t want it to babyish. I wanted something cute and eclectic and something that could easily transition from baby to big kid. I think that this nursery hits all those points, and I love it! So without further ado, Emma’s nursery –
I saw this nursery on Pinterest and loved the fabric hoop display above the crib. So I glitterized (is that even a word?) these wooden letters and raided my fabric stash. So pretty! P.S. Did you know that they make glitter spray paint? Go get some! Now. Seriously. Its awesome!
I saw some cute little felt taxidermy heads on Etsy. Some people think they’re weird. I think they’re fantastic! However, they cost like $30 a head (Worth it! They take forever to make)! So I figured out how to sew my own. Not perfect, but I’m pretty proud of them. I love the metal storage rack as a bookshelf. The books are facing out so they’re easier for baby to see and more decorative.
The little alcove by the window makes a perfect reading nook. I wanted a lamp above the chair, but also wanted to be able to turn it off and on easily while holding a tiny, squirming human. So I ran to Target and bought a wireless light switch like this one. I hung the switch right next to the chair so I don’t even have to move to flip the switch. I had pinned an image of a nursery with a mobile made of paper cranes. I love the idea, so I made one too!
The coral dresser was the first nursery decision I made. Got the idea here, found a dresser on Craigslist, and went to town. The hanging storage holds all the many, many, many diapers she needs.
What’s a nursery without some super cute (and funny) art? P.S. Chalkboard wall!
And the best part? The beautiful things that were made with love and have special meaning. Like a rocking horse my great-grandfather made for me and the quilt my mom made especially for her granddaughter.
I worked long and hard on this room (I seriously painted it like 3 times. Unnecessarily. Long story. Bad memories) and I love it! Perfect for our little princess!
