Melanie’s sweet little girl arrived just a few days ago. Congratulations to Melanie and her family!
We have just three short weeks until our baby girl arrives! I have worked hard for the past nine months getting her nursery together. I wanted to create something girly, yet eclectic. I also wanted a room that could transition with her from her first year and beyond. We used the same nursery that our son used. You may have seen it in the Project Nursery gallery. So, here is the before shot.
And now, almost four years later, here is our little girl’s new room!
I had so much fun searching out items to create the perfect space. I was working with a tight budget, so I really had to decide what to splurge on and what we could do on a budget.
I did some fun DIY projects, like the abstract artwork and bow holder. We also found an inexpensive vintage mirror that I painted pink. The shelving system was from our son’s room, and we just painted the cubes pink to coordinate with the room.
The small chair in the corner was my grandmother’s that we had reupholstered with a modern fabric. One item we splurged on was wallpaper for the crib wall. I knew I wanted to use wallpaper, and I found something that was feminine enough for a nursery but wasn’t too juvenile. I don’t think the pictures do it justice—it’s a very pretty silver metallic leaf pattern by Thibault. The vintage ballet posters were a gift given to me at my ballet-themed baby shower. They are just perfect for the room!
