It's official! The newest member of our family is the first to have a completed room in this house. We've only been in this home a year and a half, but this room has seen quite a bit of change. On move-in day it was sporting a sweet shade of yellow paint with garden decals from it's previous 3 year old tenant.
I think the
thing that could make me give up my personal haven was a certain little lady that joined our family in January. Now it's a sweet little space for the sweetest little babe. And her mama kinda likes it too.
We decided to keep the white backdrop and create a room that was light and bright with happy pops of color. The only new pieces in here are the crib, floral print, and the curtain panels. Everything else was either found second hand or repurposed from another room in the house. There are a lot of DIY's and budge friendly projects in the space that I'll share in the coming weeks. For now...well come on in!
I snagged this chair from an estate sale and
we lightened it up by painting the trim white. Maybe one day I'll have it reupholstered, but it's certainly a comfy spot for us to snuggle up just as it is.
The floral print is actually a piece of
. It had all the colors we wanted to use in the room, so I planned to line some drawers or cover some boxes with it. But it was so beautiful and had a natural border so we popped it into an IKEA frame instead. Can't beat gorgeous cheap art!
This rug is really the star of the show. I purchased it from
for our entry way, but it was so soft underfoot and ended up being the perfect punch of color for this nursery.
I love this charming St Therese print from
and the "lovely" canvas was a DIY (post coming soon!).
This sweet basket was a Home Goods find that I brought up from the family room to corral Livy's toys.
We also brought in this mirror that used to hang above the piano. I'm a sucker for gold and a little bling.
The jury is still out on this mobile. It was another DIY and I'll share it even though I'm not sure if it's staying. I do have a crush on that little elephant, so right now the odds are in his favor.
We've got a spitter-upper on our hands so we go through a lot of sheets. Lots and lots of cute sheets.
This changing table/dresser is one of my favorite projects in the room. It was given to us for free by a neighbor and it got a major makeover.
I know my daughter's name starts with an "O" but I saw this plaque with gold hook and they had limited letters available. We call Olivia by her nickname all the time so the "L" works until I can replace it with an "O".
This room is pretty small at 10ftx10ft. We stuck with just a few key pieces of furniture, but I had so much fun playing in the girly details....
The room's best accessory? It's newest resident of course. Now pardon me while I bawl my eyes out, because that's my baby holding my baby.
Yup - she digs it.
And let's be honest. This is how the crib actually looks. Monitor cam and breathable bumper. #safetyfirst
I think we only have a few more weeks before we're going to have to move that cord!
Thanks so much for reading! We would love to hang out!
