My hubby did a great job on the paneled wall behind the crib. It turned out just as pretty as I imagined!
(view from the closet.) There is my old dresser we refinished for the room!
You may have also noticed that my vintage mirror isn't in the room.... I hung it and it just didn't 'fit' in the space, I wasn't happy with it. I decided to hang this round one that I had gotten at a consignment sale and I think it goes better with the room. I love my little DIY mirror but if I don't think something looks right in a room, it literally eats at me till I 'fix' it! Anyway, it is now back up on my mantel....I'm not in love with it there either:-/ Ok, back to the nursery! Here is another view of the room. It bugs me that the balloon shade looks so sheer in these pics, I wish you could tell how pretty it is in person!
Love the little dollhouse. My hubby refurbished a funky table/cart we got at a thrift store for it to sit on. Turned out so cute!
My hubby also made these great bookshelves! I decided they also make great shelves for displaying photos!
Another thing we did was get rid of the popcorn ceiling and Jeff re-surfaced it with a trowel and texture paint. Turned out beautiful! We painted it a light beige color that I lost the name of :-/ And installed crown (of course!)
I replaced the wooden knobs on the closet doors with these pink glass ones for more of a vinatey, girly look.
The tiffany lamp was mine from my room when I was young. Works perfect in here! And you probably recognize my DIY blocks ;)
The tea saucers are all thrift store finds. It was a little more difficult than I thought it would be to find them and my mom helped me gather a small collection.
My dream crib. It was a gift from my grandmother and it's my favorite part of the room.
I also love her beautiful bedding.
I envisioned having little flower vases above the crib but didn't want to use glass (for obvious reasons) but had a difficult time finding anything! I ended up with these plastic bottles from Hobby Lobby and I think they work ok.
Sweet little chandelier
Gotta have throw pillows! I had the worst time finding a rug for this room. I'm not 100% thrilled with this shag number but it works for now. It's actually 2 smaller rugs that I put together. I actually wanted to make it twice the size but I got them at a discount store and there weren't any more so I had to work with two.
I hope you have enjoyed this little 'tour' of our baby room. It was a labor of love and I look forward to enjoying it with her.
Ok, I will post product details as best I can with this crazy mommy/preggo brain I have going on!
Paint color: Valspar Pink Air (eggshell)
Rocker: I ordered it from WalMart.com when I was pregnant with Hayden 3 years ago. I'm not sure if they still carry it, I was unable to find it.
Bedding: Little House by Annette Tatum in Pool Rose Khaki. The set has been discontinued, I found it on ebay.
Chandelier: Home Depot (not sure if they still carry it, I snagged it on clearance for $50!)
