Here it is: the big nursery reveal! I used baby shower decor and I also did some shopping at some of my favorite stores, Pottery Barn Kids (Baby Girl Nursery, Phase 1) and Home Goods stuff are in Baby Girl Nursery, Phase 2 (some DIY as well). The rest of the DIY deets are at the bottom.
I poured a lot of love into this project…I consider it my first love letter to Baby Girl, creating a pretty space for my little lady.
I can keep this banner up for at least a year, right? It’s from my shower and I love it.
Beautiful felt flower wreath made by my cousin for my shower.
After growing up in earthquake California, I’m all about decals and not hanging anything above the crib. I think it’s Feng Shui as well, not having anything “hanging over your head” while you sleep.
It’s hard to capture in photos, but this wallpaper has glitter on it so it has a classy touch of shimmer. Every baby girl needs some shimmer, right?
A lot of people say not to get a quilt for the nursery, but I’ve used this one quite a bit. It dresses up the chair with some design and color and it’s a great photo backdrop.
She has a few stuffed friends on both sides of the crib.
The teddy bear is wearing a DIY tutu (I will post a tutorial on that later) that Baby Girl wore in her six month photo shoot.
My sister got the cute teddy in London.
This pillow was a gift from my mother-in-law’s sister. I loved how it matched perfectly.
I just sewed on a few bows to this PBK crib skirt.
This table was a repurposed DIY. Deets at the bottom.
The pewter frame was a gift from my aunt and uncle. So much love sprinkled around her nursery. 🙂
I’m still goggly-eyed over this PBK chandelier, it’s one of my favorite pieces in the nursery.
Also love the PBK ruffled curtains. They are a great photo backdrop as well.
I will post more of her professional photos (by Sarah and Brad Photography) and how we used the nursery, but here is my favorite one in front of the curtains.
If I were doing it over again, I would have used a dresser instead of a changing table, but I did get to use this for three babies and I liked the easy access of the baskets.
I had a mirror falling incident (not on the baby, thank God) when I hung it with just a nail, so I secured all of these in the collage wall with Command strips as well.
This is one of my favorites. Still can’t believe I found it on sale at Home Goods. I love using it to display different cute outfits. I also use it functionally to hang her jammies or towels.
This is a picture her brother drew right after she was born, and it’s displayed on her sink.
It’s not just about decor, of course. The room has to be functional. Here are a few “baby lifestyle” pics.
First time she napped in the crib (there usually isn’t anything in the crib – she was only two months old and not moving around yet).
Hanging out on the changing table.
We do a lot of rocker time…reading, feeding, looking out the window, sitting while she explores and grabs my face…you know, just hanging out. I’m glad we went with a comfortable one from PBK.
I think she likes her room, don’t you?

Love the "lifestyle" shots. Now, why isn't Ty's pic from his feminine nap in there? 😉
Beautiful work, mama. You're an inspiration!
Aw, thanks, Rach! xoxo I don't think I even have the Ty pic! 🙁
