A Project For
We wanted a girly space that our daughter can grow in. This room was being used as a guest room and already had the bed in it. It turned out to fit perfectly for a girl. My older daughter chose the paint color for the walls. I originally wanted a lighter lavender and she wanted a darker purple, so we settled on the shade in-between. It turned out great I think. I made the bunting, three throw pillows, and the fabric hoop art myself. I also made her button whale and name. I got that idea off of Etsy when I was browsing and saw someone had made an elephant. I also fell in love with the ruffle bed skirt at Pottery Barn kids, but not the price. They were $99! I found them on amazon for only $30. I kept seeing these cute wooden cabinets in the nurseries I was looking at and my husband made one that came out so good! The rocking chair was my older daughters and we just spray painted it to add an extra pop of color to the room.
I spent a lot of time looking on Project Nursery, Pinterest, and Etsy. I also love Pottery Barn Kids.
I love vintage, country, and wanted it to be inviting. I wanted the space to feel like something she can grow with.

I love the little cabinet her daddy made for her! I think he did such a great job! I also love the hand-made things that I made. It makes it more special. Also the rug I got off of etsy. It was a great find. In the end, I love how it turned out!
Start early! I was finishing up a degree for most of my pregnancy, and didn't finish the degree until about 2 1/2 months before she was born. This left me very little time to work on her nursery. I felt rushed and ended up making purchases that I didn't like because I felt the time crunch, only to return them later.
