Drumroll anyone? Ok, so maybe this isn't that dramatic of a post. But I have been hounded by friends & family to post Baby G's nursery pics...so here they finally are! (BEWARE...there are a lot of pictures!)
I had a hard time photographing the space, as I don't have a fancy shmancy lens that can shoot around corners...but I hope that these shots give you all a feel for the space. Because I just love it. Sometimes when I walk by the door, I just walk in and sit in here and smile. I hope it makes you all smile too!
This was a totally DIY room! Mainly everything in the space was handmade, refurbished, or recycled. Lavender & green were basically the color scheme, so we painted the walls a light lavender and kept all the furnishings white.My refurbished glider is nestled in one corner between the big window and a little bookcase, holding baskets of toys & books. I bought the baskets at Michael's and made my own fabric liners for them.
Pottery Barn knock off wall plaques are neatly hung (and basically level!) over the bookcase...
lamp, baby sock bouquet from my baby shower, and tutu bear sit on top of the bookshelf. My mama made the adorable little tutu on the bear!
Hemnes dresser, from Ikea.
Paper-Source spell out her name. I decorated them with stickers, ribbon, and the scrapbook paper left over from the PB Wall Plaques.
I also made the "bow holder" to hold all of her baby bows, and the changing pad cover (using this tutorial from Prudent Baby).
And every little girl needs a sparkly "crystal" chandelier! For a very reasonable $40 from Ikea, its the room's perfect girly finishing touch!
Don't ask me how I convinced my husband that a chandelier was a practical & necessary addition to a baby's room...but it was so worth it, it's my favorite part of the room!
And I guess that's enough pictures for now...are you all still awake? Hopefully I didn't lose anyone due to a lavender cuteness overdose.
All that's left is to wait for the baby!
I think it's safe to say that we're ready when you are, Little Gracie. Mama can't wait to meet you!
