I’ve had a lot of fun making our house a “home.” But I gotta say my favorite part, and what ended up being my favorite room, was the nursery!
Here is the post where I shared my mood board for the nursery, including the bedding and artwork that I fell in love with: Project Pink.
Here are some photos showing how it all came together:
– The Spa Blue by Valspar on the one wall really brightens the whole room.
– I did use pink for the window. It was a piece of sheer fabric I found on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics. I didn’t have enough to cover the whole window but made it work (and threw in some dark blue lace trim on the top seem and a teal ribbon to pull it together.)
– The nightstand is one of the two that came with our bedroom set. I just sacrificed mine because it was the right fit for the nursery and I didn’t want to have to go find and buy something else.
– The crib was gifted/handed-down from a sweet friend.
– The lamp was one we had around the house. If you notice the pink fabric letters spelling out “girl”, that was decor on one of our baby shower gifts!
– To the right you can see a glimpse of my rocking recliner. We got it free and it required major cleaning. Even after cleaning it, I decided to cover it with a cozy blanket we had. The chair was originally dark blue but I liked the opportunity bring more red into the room.
– The pillow I got on clearance at Target.
– Here you can see more of the chair.
– The hanging plush moon we found at a thrift store.
– I got the frames as a set of four at a garage sale. I was planning to paint them white but then couldn’t turn down another opportunity to bring red into the room. The three prints are my Etsy finds that I mentioned in my previous post. Love them so much!
– The dresser was just a hand-me-down we had that ended up being the right size for her changing table cushion.
– The teal covering the changing table cushion is actually a towel. I was going to sew it into a sheet, but got lazy and just used the extra bassinet sheets we ended up with (baby pink.)
– Because there was no extra room on the dresser for all the changing supplies, I picked up the dark-blue, hanging caddy at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. It was with their dorm-room collection but has worked perfectly for us!
– The pink polka-dotted hamper was a Marshall’s find. It was so fun to find perfect little additions for the nursery as I was out-and-about pre-baby.
– As you can see, the closet doors are also Spa Blue. (The bedroom door is just to the right of this photo.)
– Here is a close-up of the comforter. (Although it doesn’t show the polar bears, which I adore! You can see those in the original post that I linked to, above.)
– The three prints on the wall and the one on the nightstand are pieces of scrapbook paper! I used cute owl & rainbow stickers and die-cut letters to spell out Cailyn’s name on the one on the nightstand.
– The photo album on the right was another clearance find at Target. It’s already full of baby photos.
– We painted the metal bookshelf red a couple years ago, but didn’t figure out where it best fit until it found it’s place in the nursery.
– The pink (plastic) and teal (metal) baskets were on the Target dollar display (actually, the $2.50 display.) I actually have three of each and the rest are on the bottom shelf (out of the photo).
– The Raggedy Ann and Andy were collector’s items that my Grandma had given to my sisters but my sisters didn’t really have a place for them, so they passed them on to us!
– The owl is a piggy bank made by JustPuff on Etsy. Such a sweet little character!
– The print is Van Gogh, of course. I spent a long time contemplating what to put in the red frame we had (painted the same time we painted the book shelf below it). I wanted something to help tie the room together, but something that Cailyn could grow with. When I saw “Blossoming Almond Tree” on sale at Michaels, I knew it was just the right thing. Not only do I think blossoming trees are the prettiest thing ever, but what a fun way to bring in some art and culture!
– Of course, our bassinet. This was a garage sale find. I paid $5 for it (minus the mattress which I would’ve bought new anyway) and a vibrating bouncy seat!
– And last, but not least, is one more print I couldn’t resist buying off of Etsy. This one was by Laportraitiste. Below you can see a close-up. I didn’t know what was more perfect for our nursery, the color scheme or the message. :)
And that ends the tour of Cailyn’s nursery!
And for the record, the title of the post, “Whimsical Winter Wonderland,” was the “catchy” title I came up with when entering her nursery into the OhDeeDo Small Kids, Big Color children’s room contest.
We didn’t make it onto the website, but I still love Cailyn’s nursery, absolutely love the colors, and wouldn’t change anything about it. :-D
