Nursery Design

In progress

My mom made the crib skirt with the ability to pull it from the top as we lower the crib. It was really important that it touch the floor, even with the highest mattress setting, so that we could utilize all that nice storage space underneath.

She also upholstered the window valances that Matthew built.

In transition...
If you check out some details in the pictures below, you can see I already altered a few things. I added the yellow lamps to the dresser top and moved the green lamp to create a more useful vignette over by the chair. I'm big on practicality and the pink box under the chair will store all of my nighttime feeding essentials plus some books and pacis and having a light was a must. I also removed the big box of pampers since those will be stored in the dresser and not out on display!

Things left to do:
1. Paint the dresser (it currently has several coats of primer but no top coat)
2. Add drawer pulls
3. Hang window panels (my mom finished 3 out 4, not bad for a weekend's work)
4. Decorate the white walls! I'm not sure exactly how or with what so any suggestions are welcome.
5. Add artwork to the black frames above the dresser. I found some really awesome prints on Etsy. They involve BabyGirl's birth date so that will have to wait til she's born.

I hope this post gets me off the hook for being an absentee blogger the last two weeks!

    Oh girl, the nursery looks amazing!!! What a lucky little girl to come home to that! LOVE it! xoxo

  3. Love the pink and green theme you went with! It's so fun decorating a girl's room. Great work!

  4. Thanks y'all! I'm having so much fun with it. It's my favorite room in the house now!

  5. I love it!! It looks adorable. As of now, we are planning on adding chair rails and wainscoting. You all did such a great job.

  6. Hi, this is gorgeous! You have great taste! Could you tell me how much distance there is between each vertical "panel" of the wainscoting? I am doing something similar and am not sure. I was thinking maybe 16" or 18"??

    Congrats on making such a beautiful space for your little girl!
