Nursery Reveal

The nursery is finished and I have finally taken the time to take some pictures of the room.  I had so much fun decorating this room with Adalyn in mind!  Although I must admit that now that the room is decorated and closet and drawers are organized and ready, I feel a huge relief!  I just knew I wanted to have it all finished before she got here...and actually I wanted it finished before my shower here at my house so that everyone could see it!

WARNING!!!!  This post contains LOTS of pictures and LOTS of pink and I'm not apologizing for it! It's my blog after all:)

The view from the door
 I love the furniture that we got.  Jonathan's mom's gift to us was the crib which converts into a full sized bed.  I love that the entire set will grow with her!  I have all dark furniture in the rest of the house but really liked this antique white for Adalyn because it just seemed so girly!


 Do you remember this post where Jes was painting this board? Here is the finished product!  Doesn't it look like it's just painted on the wall??  This way I can always move it!  Better than buying her name in vinyl! I seriously picked the font and Jes free-handed it!  The balls hanging over the bed as the "mobile" are fabric poms that my mom slaved away at! Billie found the how-to on a blog and I loved them so my mom volunteered to work on them.  They are really easy to make but a bit time consuming to make that many!! :)  But I just love how they look over the crib at all different heights and depths!
 This changing table converts into a dresser with a mirror.  But we aren't wishing away time.  We'll keep that mirror in storage for a while! :)
 Another original painting from Jes!  I saw this quote on Red Letter Words but the size of the print was too small and the price tag was too big, so I asked Jes if she could paint something with this quote and this is what she came up with! I love it!!  It means so much to me!  The wall flowers I saw on Young House Love blog and had to get them! They are so easy to install and way cute! The package came with 20 flowers so I even have some left over for another room! :)
 I LOVE this chandelier! I saw it in the window of a children's boutique and had to have it!  We were looking everywhere for a chandelier and couldn't find the right one.  When we saw this, J and I both agreed that we loved it!  Yes, it is covered in glitter so hanging it was a chore and my poor husband was covered from head to toe in glitter:)  My parents' gift to us was this glider.  It is amazing and if you can't tell, Dakota loves it.  Should be interesting when I'm trying to nurse!
 This is the pillow I made (with Billie's help:) - cording and a zipper are a bit tricky!)  I decided to make it double sided...why not?

 Bow hangers at boutiques are $40-$50 so I found this pink and white hanging at Hobby Lobby and it was supposed to be a pretty cork board.  I painted the letter "A" and attached it with hot glue and added the ribbons, hung it on a door knob hook (don't know why I didn't get that in the picture) and there you have a bow holder for $16!!
 The curtains were my big project!  I'm not sure if I'll ever tackle lined drapes again.  I got a bit frustrated.  It might have something to do with sewing on 9 ribbons and making sure they were all straight and exactly the same on both panels.  Or it could be because I was doing it on the floor trying to bend over my big belly!  Either way, I love how they turned out!  I think the ribbons really tie into the bedding!
 We are filling up the bookshelf!  Thanks to two showers where people were asked to bring books instead of cards!  Love that!  I wanted a place to just put some girly stuff.  Almost everything is either from Hobby Lobby (50% off of course) or the Two Chicks Barnyard Sale!  I have this same set of hooks (except bigger) hanging behind the door to keep the diaper bags on or to hang towels. I love the look of the door knob hooks:) 
 Here is a look at the closet.  I have tried to organize it as best as I can.  Jonathan hung some extra shelving and as you can tell, we've stocked up on diapers!
 As you can see, our hospital bags are packed and ready to go! (That diaper bag was at a consignment sale for $25!!) Is it wrong that Adalyn's bag is so stuffed?  I couldn't decide what type of blanket to bring so like any normal girl, I packed options!  (I also packed options for bows and hats!)
Ok little one, we are ready for you!!!  We can't wait to meet you!

I LOVE your nursery! I am having a baby girl in Feb. and I love all the pink! I have pink bedding and aqua walls with light green accents. I love pink and green together. I think I'm going to have to order those wall flowers too. Best of luck to you!

The Mama said...

Absolutely beautiful! I did what looks like the exact same pink on bottom and pink on top on the walls of my princess' nursery as well. You did a great job, I love it!!

I'm a little late to the party... but OH MY GOODNESS!!! Abby... this is THE MOST GORGEOUS baby girl's room I have ever seen. I started to tear up when I saw it because I know how desperately this little girl was prayed for and wished for and look at her pretty room... and she's almost here to enjoy it! We have an awesome God do we not?! I know I say this to you all the time but I am SOOOOOO excited for you Sweetie. I wish I could give you a huge hug right now! Beautiful job, my friend!! This room should be in a magazine! xo

Taryn said...

What a fabulous nursery she has!!! Oh I'm so envious of you having all of this DONE as I sit here and try to think of ways to get out of cleaning out so we can make our nursery look like this. I love EVERYTHING especially the pup in the chair. You are so talented - the drapes alone are a huge accomplishment!! You're so ready for her now - so exciting!
