Our Nursery

Even 18 months in, there are a few things I’d like to do before I consider it complete, Little things, like the curtains that resemble high waters, and the naked wall to the left when you walk in. Still, the nursery is my favorite room in the house. It’s so peaceful in there, I swear it even smells better than the rest of the house. I thought I’d share it with you.

If I had to describe the “theme,” it would be color palette, which was taken from the crib bedding, this pattern:

Over time, stuffed animals were added into the mix, like in every nook and cranny of the room.

We got the dresser from Goodwill for 20 dollars. We painted it and bought new hardware and now it’s the perfect pop of color, aka dresser, aka changing table. The shelves hold an assortment of her, (well, truthfully, my) favorite toys, knick knacks, and a few photos.

Gotta love Mr. Potato Head.

Over her crib, her name is proudly displayed in flowery letters.

I got the letters and the backings from Micheal’s and painted them with acrylic paint.

The French Doors let a lot of light into the room. First thing in the morning, when the curtains are still pulled shut, the whole room glows in pink light. It’s amazing. You feel like your inside a girly sunset.

The rocking chair is really comfortable. I’ve logged a lot of hours on that thing. (Yes, that is Kennedy playing with the diaper pail, it’s now the toy pail.)

This corner of the room needs help.

Yep, that’s a bed, a full size one. Until recently, Kennedy’s room has had to double as a guest room on the rare occasion that we have had overnighters.

On the upside, a giant cuddly puppy lives on the bed.

But now that we have a playroom that can serve as guest bedroom, so that mattress is on it’s way out. We’ll be replacing it with some much needed custom store toy storage.No promises, but I’m hoping to share on Monday!

  1. Awww, her name on the wall is a really cute idea! I’ve always wanted to have something like that for my daughter’s room, but we could never find anything that didn’t look bleh or boyish or something. I’ve never thought to use/create backings for them like you did here! (Duh!) The room looks very inspiring & fun to be in!
