Ballerina Princess Nursery Room


I think every single mom gets crazy about her first child. Guess what would be the prettiest room in the whole house... Of course "The Nursery". And I was there, to make all my sister's wishes come true. Painting, sewing, installing, etc. I loved it... Don't you?

Design Inspiration

My sister fell in love with my nephew's prince nursery I decorated months ago. We decided to make something pretty similar but for a girl and for an smaller room.

Decorating Style

Classic, elegant, vintage and very sweet with tons of DIYs.

Project Details

Tulle Canopy was made by me.

I made the Gathered Cornice. You will find all the instructions from the sources.

Curtains are simple silk fabric with blackout behind.

Instructions how tho make the tutu here.

Basket Linens and Changing Pad Cover are also made by me.

I made the headband holder and storage with a simple and cheap glass vase. I wrapped it with crochet.

Headbands are also made by me. I wrote how to made one of them on the Newborn Tutu Outfit post.

The flowers vase is a juice bottle with a crochet cover made by me.

I made the name wall art design, then printed as a photo.

I printed the feet and hands from the baby putting some non toxic acrylic paint all over and then pressing to aquarelle paper.

I made custom bedding for the crib. Gathered skirt, gathered bumper with big bows, pillowcases and letter quilted fitted sheet.

Favorite Items

All of them are my favorites :)

    Hola Mayra, soy de República Dominicana

  40. avatar Mayra Arias says:

    Hola Annie, la alfombra es de HomeGoods de Tjmaxx.
    Hola Dahyana de dónde eres? Yo estoy ahora en Culiacán, México. El piqué me parece bien para el bumper y la falda de la cuna, pero me parece un poco áspero para mantas que tengan directamente contacto con la piel del bebé. Te recomiendo tejidos más suaves para cubrir el colchón de preferencia de algodón.

  41. avatar Dahyana says:

    Waoo que bueno que hablas español!!
    Necesito una ayuda con las telas, tipo y diseño.
    Voy a intentar hacer algo parecido para mi bebé, porque lo que está en tiendas es muy colorido,
    o tiene diseños, y prefiero la verdad lo mas sencillo posible.
    Estaba viendo para bumber, skirt y mantas Pique, pero no se que me recomiendas!
    La alfombra es muy hermosa también, la hiciste tú?
    No estoy en USA, pero amaría estar allá para que me echaras una mano…

  42. avatar annie says:

    donde compraste la alfombra. gracias

  46. avatar Mayra Arias says:

    Thank you very much KT!!! :)

  47. avatar KT says:

    Wow, this isn’t my style at all, but I LOVE IT! Very beautifully done.

  48. avatar Mayra Arias says:

    You’re welcome ;)

  49. avatar Dahyana says:

    WAoooo amazing!! Thank u! Very Creative!!

  50. avatar Mayra Arias says:

    Thank You Dahyana, Yes! it’s sewing. I did something like quilting with letters and crowns layering fabric, batting and backing fabric. Also, I made the pillow crown ironing fusible fabric in the back of my fabric, then cutting the crown and sewing on place with zig-zag stitch.

  51. avatar Dahyana says:

    Oh my god the bedding is amazing, are the crowns done with sewing?

    I have to check stores in order to find the fabrics.

    Beautiful and unique!
