I can’t believe the nursery is finally done! I am due tomorrow, October 18, and everything is finally ready!
I had so much fun putting this space together. I have known even before we were planning to have kids exactly what I would do for a little girl’s nursery, and it came together exactly how I envisioned! (There are shoppable links throughout the post and a full source list at the bottom of the post)
The room is small – maybe 10×10 – but adding a chair rail 3/4 of the way up the wall added so much character. The metallic star decals are from Urban Walls, and I absolutely love them. It really wasn’t too hard to put them up and they make such a big impact. My dad switched out the light fixture for this gold and crystal flush mount, which is so charming.
My mother-in-law painted the antique dresser for me. which we’re using as a changing table. I love that we can continue to use this piece even after the diaper changing days are over.
The curtains in the room were a labor of love by my mom. They are simple white panels from Target, which we originally picked bright coral fabric for. After she sewed the coral on and we hung them, they were just not right in the room. Everything feels so soft and soothing, and the coral was very jarring in person. So my mom took it off and we lined them with simple peach ribbon from Hobby Lobby. Thanks mom for all your hard work!
I love this little corner, which is both sweet and sophisticated. The glider is by Delta Children, and I picked up the coral pillow at Home Goods before we even knew what we were having (I picked up a “boy pillow” also, but obviously didn’t end up needing that : ). I knew I wanted a lot of mirrored accents, so the table and frames all carry that through.
The crib is a classic Jenny Lind, and I love its simple lines. I tried to keep the major pieces gender-neutral so we can use them again and just change out accents if we have a boy.
The Ikea Isala cabinet holds blankets and extra nursery items. I knew I wanted a vintage rocking horse for the top. Let me tell you, those are not easy to find, especially for a decent price. I was so excited when my friend in Kansas City found this one at a vintage store. It was dark wood and I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint. It looks pretty as an accessory now, and is very usable when the baby is a bit bigger.
Don’t you love this diaper bag? I wanted something that didn’t look too much like a diaper bag, since I’ll probably essentially carry it as a purse for the next year. It is the Manifest Weekender by Little Unicorn. I love that brand. My favorite blanket, the watercolor rose quilt, is by them as well.
I got the rug for free using credits from Joss and Main. I had originally wanted a starburst pattern, but figured free was worth a slight design change! I love the pattern and texture it adds.
The star crown is actually a Christmas decoration I got from Wisteria a few years ago, but I knew it would be perfect in our sweet girl’s nursery. The books are just notebooks from TJ Maxx, but the colors were perfect.
The tiny Beatrix Potter books are from my childhood, and I adore them. I got the silver rattle for a few dollars at a consignment sale.
The gold arrow hook came from Target (just yesterday!) and the darling peach tutu was a gift from my mom. The long dress is an antique christening gown, and the cream dress is her coming home outfit. I love having these on display!
I will probably fill the frames with our newborn and family photos after her arrival, so for now I simply filled them with peach and gold wrapping paper.
I made the flower mobile using the tutorial from Jones Design Company and flowers from Hobby Lobby. It took more flowers than I thought, but I love how it turned out!
Love this print from Lindsay Letters!
I’ve had this girl bust for several years, and knew it would be so cute in the nursery, especially with a peach bow in her hair : )
I’m sure we will soon fill this cabinet up with toys and extras, but for now it’s simple and pretty storage.
All her teeny tiny clothes! I used drawer organizers from Ikea to sort everything.
Her closet was so fun to put together also. She already has quite the wardrobe! I was able to get the cubbies as well as the woven baskets on swap sites for next to nothing. The bins hold the less-than-cute necessities, while her little shoes and books are on display.
We are so excited to meet our little girl (hopefully very soon)! It has been such a labor of love getting this little space ready. All of our family helped in some way, and we could never have been prepared without the generous baby gifts from friends and family. It has been such a blessing! We’re waiting for you, sweet girl!

You guys, having a little girl is just the most fun! Besides Lexie just being the sweetest babe ever, it’s also so much fun to get to do girly things with her. In her new playroom (full reveal coming soon!) I set up a little mini-celebration for Valentine’s Day. Nothing too fancy, but…
Hello friends! Things have been busy busy around here. Since the sale has been over I’ve been working on our house like crazy! Though it may seem our house is furnished, in reality we haven’t even touched the other half of the house with three bedrooms, a bathroom and our master. I’ve made some fun…
I think Lexie spent months thinking about the theme for her birthday party! She came up with just about everything under the sun – bunnies, Frozen, ballet, Lightning McQueen. Truly the things that go through four-year-olds minds are pretty great and hilarious. We thought the winner was going to be Peter Pan (the movie she…
The first everything with a baby is simply too much fun. So far we’ve had the first Halloween (she was one day old), Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and now Easter. Though a 4-month-old certainly doesn’t “need” much or understand what’s happening, it’s still such a joy to shower her with fun little goodies to make…
Seven weeks, fourteen hours of wallpapering, two turkish rugs and it’s all finally over! The One Room Challenge is in the books and I’m so excited to share our completed powder room with you guys today. I’m so happy with how everything turned out! It took this space from basic to filled with pattern and…
It’s already week two of the One Room Challenge! If you missed it you can see my plans to redesign our main floor powder room here. I don’t have a lot to show this week because the wallpaper hasn’t arrived yet, and that’s really what this whole thing hinges on! I did stumble on this…
