Nursery Reveal....better late than never!

Here was our starting point: tan walls and bare room

When we had everyone over for Christmas we had our family write prayers to Carys on the wall before we painted.

Mr. A writing his prayer:

me writing my book uh I mean prayer :)


Carys' sign on her door, I bought the C from Hobby Lobby and painted it and added the chipboard letters for her name and the ribbon hanger:

View when you look in the door:



Her crib and wall quotes her bedding is blossoms by Migi


quotes above her crib are from the song "The Words I Would Say" by Sidewalk Prophets and the cross is from my bestie :) the quote on the right says "be strong in the Lord and never give up hope" and the one on the left says "you're gonna do great things I already know" I heard the song a lot when I was pregnant and I would envision myself singing the words to her and I actually do sing the song to her now.

her bow holder that's already full 


This armoire was in her daddy's nursery and we repainted it and added new hardware for hers:


All the art work in her nursery was painted by a very dear friend these are on one side of her window


For her curtains I wanted something that would go with her bedding but I couldn't find anything so I took apart the crib bumper since it's a no no to use them and I sewed the fabric onto the curtain panels and presto custom drapes to match her crib set.


lanterns above her changing table these things are very helpful when changing her cause she just stares at them :)



More custom artwork above the changing table.

my glider that was a gift from my wonderful in laws :)


view in her closet we added the curtain for a closet door to soften her space thank you Young House Love for the idea :)



her closet is the biggest one in the house so we painted it petal pink and added tons of storage including the glimpse of that little towel bar for her cute little hooded bath towels :)



So there you have it our baby girl's nursery finally complete and just in time she started sleeping in there a week ago. I hope you enjoyed my nursery tour I am really proud of this space it was my labor of love from painting the trim glossy white, to the bright green walls and soft pink closet and all the little details. Now on to the next room my craft space!

Later Alligators....

You did a beautiful job, everything came together wonderfully! And what a sweet idea with writing the prayers on the wall, I'll have to remember that!
