This post could also be titled: My Current Favorite Room.
One of my favorite things about creating a space is watching my ideas come to life. I have been thinking about a girl nursery for years. My ideas have definitely changed over the years. After having a pretty bold boy nursery for almost 4 years, I was ready for calm & serene for Cheney. I love how everything turned out & can't wait for our girl to get to enjoy it!
This is what you see right when you walk in. I also catch a glimpse of that gigantic pink monogram when I walk down the stairs and it always makes me smile. I think that pink monogram makes the whole room! We decided to paint the room a pretty shade of gray (Woodlawn Colonial Gray by Valspar) and just use a lot of white & pink accents.
We put Grayson's bed back together as a crib because I still love the way it looks!
I never would have thought that I would choose almost all white bedding, but I love how it looks in the room!
This chair is SO comfy & was a steal! Our old glider was awful & I always regretted not buying a nice, plush chair from the beginning. A girl here sold this one to me on a local buy, sell, trade site for $100! Can't beat that!
I took the boys to downtown Franklin a few weeks ago so that they could pick out a stuffed animal for their baby sister. They insisted on this sweet pink Jellycat bunny! That will be Cheney's stuffed animal for her monthly pictures.
That little side table used to be in the boys nursery but the top was painted blue. I used some Annie Sloan chalk paint to make it more appropriate for a girly nursery! I also love those ruffle curtains, however, they were a HUGE pain to iron. Yikes. Better get used to it!
Those pink frames will eventually hold some newborn pictures.
Sweet scripture hanging on her wall!
This little armoire was also a steal! Cheney's closet is sadly the smallest in our whole house. She really needed more storage so I scoured Craigslist for an armoire that I could refinish. I found this antique one for $40! All it needed was a fresh coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint & some new glass knobs. I love how it turned out & is now holding all of her sleepers, blankets, sheets, & towels. It has a ton of storage!
This wall hanger was something that used to be mine & was being used in G's room for his dress up clothes. I decided to use the chalk paint on it too & hang it over the changing table. That pink dress was mine and was given to me by my late Grandnana. Makes it so much more special! The white dress is also one of my old dresses and will be what Cheney will come home from the hospital in. It has some little bloomers & a matching bonnet too, of course:) Hooray for vintage baby clothes!
So that is Cheney's nursery....the last one that will be in our house! I had so much fun creating this space for our baby girl. Now we just need Cheney to join us!
