The very first time we saw this house, this room was set up for a little boys nursery. Once we finally moved in I just couldn’t picture it any other way, it was always the nursery. Over the years it was a storage room, my office, a guest bedroom, but never a nursery.
Shortly after starting IVF I decide it was time to prep it for the nursery, I did a lot of baby prepping once we finally started IVF because it was finally the hope we had been waiting for. So we painted this room over a year ago, and everyone would ask “what if you have a girl?” .. Well then she’ll have a blue room - whats wrong with that?!
This is also one of the rooms that got new carpet + baseboards along with the rest of the remodel. Which is SO nice but it made it very difficult because no baby stuff was happening for the first few months of my pregnancy until the remodel was finished.
I absolutely love how this room turned out. There’s no “theme”, its just things we liked, and I think thats what I love most about it.
*from top to bottom*
Light fixture: Home Depot - along with new carpet we got a new light fixture in this room, which kicked off the “gold accents” throughout.
Shelf: World Market - this is a “mix and match” wall shelf, you can accomplish any style with these options here are the two we decided on: white wash wood w/ gold accent + geometric gold wire brackets.
Cat Picture: Hobby Lobby + currently on sale
Daisy Watercolor: Meligrafi - I found this little beauty while I was photographing some of her products and I told her it simply cannot leave the nursery now!
Embryos: My two little embryos - its impossible to know which one is now this bouncing baby girl but keeping them framed here is such a sweet reminder of how much she has grown and gone through to come to us. We got the gold frame at Home Goods.
String Art: KayLay Design - I met McKayLa last year, when she donated a beautiful string art piece to our IVF Instagram Auction. She is the sweetest and wanted to create a piece for this little girls nursery, and I’m so glad she did! I love these little mountains!
Lamb: Amazon - is this not the cutest organic, hand crocheted lamb you ever saw?
Dresser: I wish I could link this dresser because I know, its so cute right? However it is also extremely special. My great-grandpa Peterson, built this dresser for me when I was born! It was then painted by my Aunt Camille. I will have to share a before and after, because i’m sure you all know a dresser goes through a lot in its lifetime, but I wanted to keep it so badly for this little girl. All we needed to do was switch out the knobs (Home Depot) and then we re-painted the white. If you look closely you can see the floral that was hand painted 23+ years ago, along with 23+ years of dings and dents.
Basket: Target - I originally registered for this basket to be a cute laundry basket for all of the tiny clothes, however after deciding not to put up more shelves for the books, I had no where to put them! Then I realized I had the perfect place.
Outlet Covers: Home Depot - notice how the ones linked are NOT gold! That’s because my sweet husband had them sand-blasted and repainted to match the light fixture.
Hanging Basket: We received TWO of these hanging baskets for our wedding, and I have no idea where they are from. I did however, know that I wanted to keep the extra and use it in our nursery some day.
Swan: Pottery Barn - kind of. My step mom found this freaking adorable little swan that a friend was getting rid of and insisted that baby girl needed it - she wasn’t wrong! It is originally from Pottery Barn and I have linked a similiar one above. There’s also a Unicorn Rocker that is to DIE for!
Adventure Wood Sign: Meligrafi - yes, Melanie does it again! I had Melanie paint this wood sign for what would be our nursery … Over a year ago! I can’t even remember when it’s been so long, i’m glad we can finally pull it out and show it off.
Crib: Amazon - I really couldn’t justify how much some of these cribs cost, we didn’t want to go too big on this expense so we stuck with a simple design with great reviews.
Crib Blanket: This is actually MY hospital blanket from when I was born.
Chair: Ikea - kind of. We found this particular one on KSL used, mostly because I really didn’t want to spend an entire day at Ikea looking for a single chair! Linked is a similar one.
Blanket: Home Goods - this blanket is what made me decide the nursery would be blue, we matched the blue wall to the blue stitching.
Curtains: Target - I stumbled across these at Target, we hadn’t decided if we were even going to do curtains but these were just so perfect. They matched the blanket that set the “theme” for this entire room but it also tied in the gold. AND they’re currently on sale.
Pouf: Target - this particular color/style is out of stock but they have a handful of similiar ones for such a GOOD price, has anyone else noticed how much $$$ these poufs usually cost?!
