7.25.12 – Nursery Reveal

26 Jul

We are finally done with our baby girl’s nursery! Well… except for the fact our new glider is broken… long story! A new one will be delivered soon. Other than that, it is D-O-N-E!

Now, what you have all been waiting for.. pictures!

To follow the format of one of my favorite blogs and sources of inspiration, Project Nursery, here are the nursery details:

Child’s Name: Delaney “Laney” Evelyn

Child’s Age: Due September 5, 2012

Description: 

A fun, bright-colored nursery for our baby girl!

Design inspiration: 

Being in a rental, we decided not to paint the room. The walls are a grayish-chocolate brown color, so we knew we wanted to use bold colors to brighten up the space. We looked at some color palettes on Design Seeds, and Kyle liked this one the best:

The design grew from there. I am not really a theme person, but my family and friends will tell you that I am drawn to geometric designs and patterns, or as my sister says, “You really like circles.” I scoured Etsy, Pinterest, and blogs for fabrics, accessories, and artwork that I liked and would fit with our color scheme. I didn’t want anything too frilly or girly, but I wanted it to be bright, cheery, and modern.

Project Details:

Bedding, curtains, pillow, blanket, changer cover: Custom-made by Crankypants Creations on Etsy with Cocoberry fabric

Crib and changing table/dresser: Babyletto Mercer at Target in two-tone

Chair and ottoman: Newco glider and ottoman in tan chenille from Babies-r-us (discontinued)

Storage bench: Closetmaid cube bench at Target

Hamper: Pottery Barn kids canvas bucket in bright pink

End table: Purchased at Target a couple of years ago

Wall letters: Custom-made by goinggaga on Etsy

Artwork/accessories: Bow frame, hospital door wreath, and button “D” frame were custom-made shower gifts from friends; “Dream Big” canvas, “D” with flower, and crib mobile were my DIY projects; Yellow and green wall prints are from rawletterpress on Etsy; Strawberry Shortcake was painted by my Great-Grandmother for me as a child; Precious Moments sun catcher was in my Great Grandmother’s house

Frames: IKEA Ribba frames; Target Xhiliration frames

Lamp: Target

Coasters: Bed, Bath, & Beyond

Green blanket: IKEA

Stuffed animals: gifts from friends and family

Favorites:

This room was definitely a labor of love for me, and I am pretty proud of how it all came together. However, I think the mobile is my favorite. I hope Laney loves looking at it as much as I loved making it for her.

Advice:

I am definitely not a designer. Finding a color scheme and fabrics first worked for me, because it gave me direction. Whenever I found an idea or product I liked, I added it to my “design board” a.k.a Word document or pinned it on Pinterest. This kept me organized. I also think it is important to have handmade and meaningful pieces in the room, because they make it even more special.

Hope y’all like it! Now all we need is our baby girl, and it will be complete. :)
