Description

When we found out we were pregnant five years ago, I knew I wanted a soft and peaceful nursery for my first child, Shiloh, so I decided to go with "less is more."  Three years later, we welcomed our second daughter, Sailor, who had her own beautiful room..... for a year. We welcomed our third child into the world just 13 months later and since he was a boy, he took over Sailor's room. Pictured are the stages Shiloh's room took throughout the transition from nursery to toddler room to shared room with sister Sailor.  An addition was added to the house throughout this process which required a hall. We took about five feet from the room to use as a hall, so everything was re positioned and that's when we painted the accent wall. My husband is very artistic and creative and did this on his own. I love every stage this room has been in and its one of my favorite rooms in the house.

Decorating Style

Clean, classy, unique.

Project Details

Crib is from local dealer in Atlanta

Crib bedding is from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child

Bookcase,small round side table and dresser/changing table came from a local antique shop. We painted everything to fit the room.

The "nook" toddler bed is actually just plywood put on top of large square posts. We used the full size mattress that was used on her bed before we converted it back to a crib for sister. Bedding on the toddler bed is from Target.

Armoire was my parents old TV armoire. We painted it white and added a bar for hanging clothes and baskets on the two shelves below.

The glider was special ordered from Babies R Us. I'm not sure they even carry this particular glider anymore. Keep in mind special orders take at least 8 weeks to arrive.

Curtains were made by a local seamstress. I found the fabric from Hobby Lobby.

Elephant rocker is from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child

"Shiloh" piece hanging over crib was a clock that came from Kirklands. We removed the clock part from the back and added her name decal to the glass. Attached some ribbon and artificial hydrangea and hung it from a hook.

Butterflies over beds came from an Etsy shop.

The tree decal was from Etsy.

Wooden name came from Etsy as well.

Toy Box was made by my father.

Favorite Items

My favorite thing in the room is the antique mantel turned bookcase. I think it's so unique and beautiful. I also love the toy box because it was made by my father.

Advice

Think outside the box. When we decided that the girls were going to share a room, we had to figure out how to fit a crib and a toddler bed. The room actually has a fairly large room attached to it that we originally used as a playroom. My husband's creative mind decided to take the odd closet and make it a "nook" bed for our three year old and turned the playroom into a large closet for both girls. Shiloh loves her new bed and thinks it's so cool that she can close her curtains and hide from the world.
