I bet it doesn’t come as a surprise that work on Baby C’s nursery began in the early weeks of her development. I skimmed countless pages of Project Nursery and Pinterest for inspiration. I had bedding picked out for either gender at around 18 weeks. So, literally the night we found out Waverlee is a Waverlee, I had bedding ordered. Fast forward seven weeks and her nursery is almost complete! So here is a tour.
A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed a paint class at Paint with Kenda. I actually painted all of the background details and then left the wording to Kenda the Professional. Please check out her site, linked above. She’s super talented.
We have two bedrooms total in the shouse. (For more layout information at our shouse click here.) Space is manageable but limited. The nursery was our spare and a full bed already existed there. It didn’t make a ton of sense to me to take it out and find additional storage so it stayed as a staple in the nursery. I think it will be great for late nights nursing and for her to eventually grow into.
Her crib is from Nebraska Furniture Mart. I picked up a simple gray mattress crib sheet and the white cushion inside the crib is the DockaTot. I’m really excited about having a DockaTot. Invented for co-sleeping, it’s a versatile crib to move anywhere that reflects the shape of the womb. I’ve honestly not read a bad review about them.
We have some funky walls in our bedrooms so I had to get creative with limited wall space. Pillows, bedding and bed skirt are past seasons from Target. The braided rug is from Amazon.
My mom Meme picked up this sweet hand painted pillow for the full sized bed on Etsy. I think it helps soften it up and make it more “little girl” for now.
I opted out of a rocker. Our house is small, we have a rocking recliner downstairs. I reupholstered this chair last year and thought it fit nicely into the nursery. Footstool is from a Hobby Lobby sale and the sheepskin rug is a staple from IKEA. Pillow is from Target.
With some wall space I added some fun trinkets. The deer head is one of my favorite pieces in the whole nursery. It was custom made by Polka Dot Pig Primitives. The shelf and greenery are from Hobby Lobby and the Audrey Hepburn Print is from Etsy.
I love these Milestone Blocks and Car from Bannor Toys.
The crib skirt and bumper rail were made by Little Charlie May. I’m in love with them.
They tied the entire room together and the quality is beyond impressive. Better yet, they’re machine washable if need be.
Mirror is from a past Zulily event and the dream catcher mobile was made by a friend.
The changing station is a $50 dresser I repainted. It can be used as her dresser now and later down the road.
I made a couple of changing pad covers to match her scheme. This 3 tier organizer was once in our bathroom but now holds teethers, pacifiers, creams and what nots for easy access. Hand sanitizer in a fancy pump because I’m sure I’ll be using a lot of it.
The “W” cactus print is from Etsy. I found the arrow at a flea market, added some simple hooks and made a nice display for some personalized clothes and headbands.
I repurposed a basket to hold extra swaddles, changing pad cover and blankets.
I’m sure some more sweet details will be added before she is here!
