Pink & Gray are such girlie colors so I knew for sure I wanted to use them for our nursery. I didn't want to have too much pink, so I thought gray walls with pink accents would be the perfect touch!
I wanted her nursery to be creative. I wanted to be able to design her room myself with things that I personal like and not all store bought, so I went with most everything in the nursery handmade.
I designed the 4 tiered ruffle bed skirt as soon as I found out what we were having and then the ideas just went on from there. I knew I was set on pinks and grays and wanted most everything to be custom or handmade, so I took to etsy!
Her changing area is actually a closet. My husband and I went to get a quote on new closet doors and our mouths dropped! Needless to say I searched on Pinterest and decided to change the closet into a changing room.
Tissue Balls-these were decorations from my baby shower.
Pillows-etsy and my mom made a couple
Scentsy warmer- www.scentedwarmers.scentsy.us
Butterfly Mobile-etsy (every butterfly is made out of paper)
Crib & Changing Table- Babies-R-Us
I would say that my favorite item in her nursery would be her tree. My mom hand painted the tree on her wall and we nailed in the fake flowers to add some dimension to the tree. I also used a paint marker and added the heart with my husbands & my initials, just to add some character.
Don't be afraid to take risks and do things yourself. It is a great feeling knowing that I personally designed everything in her room exactly how I wanted it.
