That photo above? That's what the nursery looked like the evening that we closed on the house. We have replaced the carpet to match the flooring in the rest of the house – we still don't really understand why they left the one room carpeted... Our cats helped us make the decision to go on and replace the carpet though. We won't go into detail on that...
Anyway, once we add some quarter round to the floor, the flooring is done. But everything else? Well, everything else still needs to be done. And what are we doing? I'm so glad you asked! Take a look!
We loved Graham's nursery in our old house. And still miss it a lot in this home. With that being said, we're taking a lot of inspiration from that to make a bright, happy space for our baby girl. Details below if you're into that sort of thing.
1 // Crib: Same one that Graham used; still in perfect(ish) condition.
2 // Ceiling Light: There's a pretty ugly fixture in there right now. This? We love.
3 // Wall & Ceiling Color: White walls with a bright pop of color for the ceiling (SW Charisma at 75%).
4 // Rocker: This is the one we bought for Sawyer's nursery. And used for Graham's. Still love it.
5 // Elephant: Fell in love the moment I saw this sweet little elephant. And possibly the starting point for colors.
6 // Lovey: Because my mama randomly picked it up to match the sheets. And it's adorable.
7 // Storage: I love this line at Target and would re-buy a ton of stuff just to get it all. We'll start with this basket.
8 // Crib Sheets: This line at Target went super-fast. I wanted to get the matching changing pad cover. No luck.
9 // Poster: I've wanted this poster For Like Ever. And a baby girl for just as long. It just works!
10 // Dresser: I think this dresser has lived in everyone's room at some point. We'll be refreshing it with an ombre paint job.
And that's it. There are a lot more details and artwork that we'll add slowly, but this is the beginning! With the long weekend ahead, I'm hoping to at least knock out some painting soon. One thing at a time, right?
