nursery tour

i know, i know, you’ve all been waiting for a tour of the nursery. you’ve just been on pins and needles waiting!  ha. ok, maybe not. but i’m excited to show you the “completed” nursery.

{i’m calling it completed, but it will be a changing room over time as Sophia grows, obviously. for now, i’m loving that it’s the one room of the house that’s not in chaos.}

remember this is what i started with:

nursery before

please notice how there are ZERO plugs in these pictures. that would be because there’s only one outlet in this whole room!  nursery before2

then do you remember my inspiration post? you can click here for it. before baby girl arrived we worked on painting the room and getting the essentials. a lot of things didn’t come together until after she was here though!

but now, the room is filled to the brim. the colors that i was working from came from this image:

you saw the preview here. now you get to see the full room. and i think little miss loves it:

this is my living room at the moment. we spend so much time here, nursing, playing, giggling… i’ve put so much love into it

{husbuddy thinks maybe i’ve put too much! you all will have to let me know}

s in nursery3

ok, now for pictures of the room. this is what you see right when you walk in:

toy bookshelf

the bright big window, the little bookshelf with her toys and my nursing supplies.

nursery-chair view

my rocker came from my grandmother, there are the bookshelves that you saw in this post. as well as the sweet little shelf you saw in the preview with a few vintage outfits hanging.


the bookshelves are perfect because they fit behind the closet door. {that closet serves as half baby girl’s and half linen}

nursery-bookshelf close up

we are already reading some of the little books together. she laughs when the horse says “neigh” or the cow says “moo” but her favorite is when daddy reads to her. i don’t know what it is, she LOVES his voice!


here’s the other side of the room:

nursery- dresser view


the dresser/changing table that i showed you how i painted in this post. {with one darn drawer open! ack! seriously, there is something wrong with me, i don’t even notice it! husbuddy is ALWAYS closing doors and drawers after me because i am ALWAYS leaving them open…he laughs at me…sometimes i think he’s just annoyed at me. lol}

you can also see the vintage dress that i framed in detail in this post. she smiles at the ruffles when she notices them while i change her. i think she’s going to take after her momma and love dresses. hee hee.

we are using cloth diapers, so you can see the wet bags hanging by the trash can. we have a few hooks hanging which have come in really handy. the other closet doesn’t have a door on it, so for now we’ve hung a sheer curtain. it’s filled with boxes of baby toys/supplies/future clothes at the moment. we hope to create a little reading nook/play area in there in the future.

nursery-bird cages

and how much do you love my bird cages?! i actually had originally wanted to hang these over her bed instead of the mobile i made.  but then we were nervous about having something metal and heavy hanging over our daughter… they aren’t heavy, but i was still nervous. so they hang over by the lamp and they hold a couple of the birds that we made. i think they will be fun to play with when she’s older! and if she doesn’t like them, i’ll take them back thankyouverymuch. ha. i was inspired by hanging bird cages over at YHL and this cute little nursery.

nuresry-crib view


and the crib with a little gallery wall. my mom made the dust ruffle, little hanging pocket caddy and some bumpers. we were informed that you shouldn’t use the bumpers until they are 6 months old because of SIDS, but they are super cute in the pink and teal fabric. i’ll be attaching them as soon as i can!


of course you’ve seen the mobile already.

nursery gallery wall

but behind it is my little art gallery wall. we have a piece made by Sophie’s grandma Pam, a spanish dancer from a visit in college to Barcelona, {the colors are perfect! who knew that i was thinking that far ahead?! haha} a cross made by the sweetest elderly gentleman at our church, a mirror from a friend that i then painted, and the sweetest little owl from one of husbuddy’s neighbors growing up, Susan Baker. {you can see the owl up close on her website here} i’m hoping to add my own art piece to the wall someday too.

mobile from below   

needless to say, there’s a lot for little girl to look at. ha. like husbuddy said, maybe it’s too much. but i can always change it… because that’s been known to happen bi-yearly. ha.

s on floor        

really though, she is the main attraction.

s in nursery   

i love that every day there seem to be new expressions and new giggles and more newness. it’s so fun to watch her discover her world!
