When we found out we were having a little girl it took me forever to figure out how I wanted to decorate the nursery. The only thing I did know is I didn’t want it “baby” and I wanted it to be classic and soft. Once I found the bedding and the crib, the rest followed. I wanted to spend money on a crib that would be an heirloom, but wanted the rest of the furniture to family pieces.
We feel so Blessed to finally be able to be parents and the nursery has become our favorite room in the house! Hope you like it!
The ball decorations above the crib are actually from all three of our baby showers. We love that she will be able to stare at them as they represent all the love our friends and family already have for her! The rocking chair was my mom’s before I was born and my husband refinished it. I love that I will be rocking her in the chair that I was also rocked in! Will have a future post on his fabulous furniture re-finishing skills! The bedside table was my little sister’s that she was throwing out and I saved it from the dumpster.
It is hard to see with the glare from pictures, but this is the scripture that is on the wall by her crib. We prayed long and hard for this gift of a child and will be forever grateful The Lord has answered our prayers.
Crib: Bratt Decor
Bedding: Carousel Designs
The wall still needs a little work, but I found the mirror at Goodwill and the misc. frames at Hobby Lobby. I have fabric from her bedding in some of the frames and will fill in the rest with her newborn pictures.
I LOVE how the dresser turned out and my husband did such a great job! I found it at an antique store and it was painted black and had different hardware. He refinished it, put new hardware on it and now it really is a work of art.
On the dresser I have some of my baby shoes and one of the sweet things from one of our baby showers that has scriptures with her name added on each. I could not resist the classic perfume bottle from Hobby Lobby.
A wishing tree from another one of our showers in which our family & friends wrote wishes for our sweet girl.
One of our favorite maternity pictures that I put in the frame and added burlap around it since it was an odd shape. Erin Crista Photography.. we love you!
The bookshelf was mine as a child and my husband refinished it to match everything else. We love the letters that were done by a sweet friend, Lindsay Gatto.
I got this adorable bow holder idea off Pinterest. Found a frame at Goodwill and my husband spray painted it gray and added the hooks at the bottom for me. I glued ribbon on the back and the little flower embellishments. This sweet girl has ALOT of bows for not even being born yet! 😉
To close this post I had to show of a picture of the precious little “diaper monkey” we got at one of my showers! Isn’t it amazing?! I love making diaper cakes, but am pretty sure I will never attempt this thing. We just can’t seem to take it apart!
Please pray our little angel comes soon friends… WE ARE READY!!!
