Description

We created this room for our sweet baby Sarah Emily - due any day now. The curtains and other items are hand sewn/made.. and most of the furniture was repurposed. We wanted a soft feminine room. We were inspired by another PN room - Chloe's Room.

Design Inspiration

Chloe's Room off of project nursery.

Decorating Style

Soft and feminine.  Mix of styles, textures and fabrics.

Project Details

We painted and bought new hardware for the wardrobe, changing table and crib (which we had already and just repurposed).  The dust ruffle and curtains were custom made by grandma... the fabric coming from cutting corners.  Even though the window is not very large, we tried to make it look more substantial by having the curtains span from ceiling to floor and spread out twice the width of the window.  The lamp was a "mix and match" from target, and the chair and chandelier are from Babies R Us.  The picture above the crib is from Hobby Lobby.  We also took out the old fan and put in a new (more flush with the ceiling) fan, recessed lighting and the chandelier - all 3 made a big difference.

Favorite Items

I love all the custom work with the curtains and dust ruffle.  I also love the chandelier - it provides just the right delicate touch.

Advice

We started with the fabrics and then found paint colors for the walls and went from there.  All the paint is from Sherwin Williams and has such a wonderful finish!

    It’s hard to believe that most of the items here are hand-made and repurposed. Little Sarah’s room is just really so lovely and feminine. You obviously have a talent for decorating.

    Love your nursery! It so so sweet and feminine:) I was wondering where you purchased the knobs and if you can give some advise on how you painted your crib!? I want to refinish a wooden crib, but I am scared!

    Thank y’all!!  To Toraason23 – we got the knobs and pulls at Home Depot… they were pretty reasonable.  To paint the crib we: 1) lightly sanded it (it previously was dark wood and had a finish on it – so you have to roughen that up so that paint will adhere), 2) dusted it off – we used damp washclothes, 3) primed it with “adhesion primer” from Sherwin Williams and then painted it (two coats) with “proclassic acrylic-alkyd” satin  – also from SW.  I know their paint can be pricey (my husband works there so we get a discount)… but it turned out well.  Good luck!!!  I’m sure you’ll end up with a beautiful product!

    It’s interesting how you inserted blacks into this pink nursery. You did quite subtly and very effectively. I just wonder how little Sarah’s room look in natural light, without the subdued lighting. Great job on this budget nursery; one can never tell it’s created on a budget!

    Your chandelier is gorgeous and it sets off the light in such a pretty pattern on the walls.  What a serene little nursery for a llucky girl…  Love it!

    Thanks for your comment on our nursery – it’s funny because out of all the nursery’s on here, yours is the one that I had bookmarked!  Congratulations on your little girl – and great job on the room!  It’s beautiful!

    I’ve looked at hundreds of nursery examples and this is the one that really has sparked my interest. I love the paint colors and the effect the chandelier reflects on the walls. You mentioned Sherwin Williams, but do you know the names of the colors? Great job!!
