Baby Girl Nursery Reveal!

Hooray!  It's nursery reveal day!  I showed you the nursery plan way back in February.  Since then, I've been hard at work creating a pink, aqua and yellow themed nursery with flowers, butterflies and hot air balloons!  And it's finally finished so I can share it with you... come along for the tour.

First things first, I cleared the room of all the guest room furniture except the cherry shelf and dresser.  Then I painted the walls a pale peachy pink called "Baby Blush" by Valspar.

I left the white floral tie-back curtains that we had in here, but behind those I added blackout thermal shades from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  So if baby girl is sleeping, we can pull the shades and have near total darkness.  

My mom bought us the white Jenny Lind crib.  I love it!

The wooden rocking horse was Michael's when he was a boy.  His father built it for him and we are so happy to have it in our home for our children!  Isn't it precious?!

I made three different crib sheets and a pink floral crib skirt for the bedding.  The quilt over the side of the crib was handmade by my grandmother when I was a baby.  It has animals cross-stitched on each square.  :)  I'm so excited to display it in my daughter's nursery.  The stuffed elephant is Michael's from when he was a baby and the little lamb is mine. :) 

Over the crib I designed a gallery wall of embroidery hoop art and some prints.  The garland and hot air balloons are from my baby shower decorations.  I decided not to make the felt hot air balloon mobile since we already had these paper hot air balloons and clouds.   

I did the two embroidery hoops with a hot air balloon and our baby girl's name.  The 'little one' print is from Katie Daisy.  The G artwork is made with pink buttons that I just glued on some fabric and framed.

In the opposite corner I have my glider chair that we bought from  It's quite comfy and I sit in here in the evenings and read.  The quilt on the back is from my friend, Andi.  And the pillow is from HomeGoods.  The blue knitted pouf ottoman is from Land of Nod.  It's very lightweight so when Georgia gets bigger she can move it around and play on it.  My nephews have already tried it out. :)  

I added a couple of side tables to fill in the space.  This round one with a pink tablecloth will give me somewhere to put my drink and kindle or whatever when I'm nursing.  The lamp is the same one from the guest room, I just painted it aqua.  The mirror is from our bedroom, and I repainted it white. :)  It's adorable in here!

The white side table is from Wayfair. I love how the spindle legs mirror the crib design.  On top of the table is a basket filled with burp cloths and a white noise machine.  The round boxes underneath have some toys and things in them.  But I'm thinking eventually I'll put a basket with books on that shelf.  

Papa built the cloud shelf for me.  It turned out quite cute! :)  It's styled to hold a stack of books.  And of course to tie in with the shelf, I hung some more hot air balloons and a paper cloud.  

On the wall next door are a couple of prints I found on Etsy.  

 The last wall has the changing table/dresser on it.  The cherry dresser and shelf we already had, and while I'd love for them to be white, I just couldn't bring myself to paint them.  Next to the dresser is a blue floral bin that I'm using as a laundry hamper.  I decided not to make the hanging laundry bag when I found this fabric bin.  

We have our changing station all set up on top.  The changing pad cover that I made has little hearts and ladybugs on it.  So cute!

We have lots of cute clothes tucked away in the drawers.

The shelf above was built by my brother over 10 years ago.  Right now it's just displaying photos and collectibles, but down the road I can see it full of books!  

The porcelain ballerina is mine from my childhood.  I paired it with a pair of tiny pink satin slippers.  Aren't they precious?

And last but not least, the closet is fully organized with shelving inside and a container system on the back of the door.  The container system is by Elfa from the Container Store.  I love it for storing all those little odds and ends that you need quick access to.  And someday when it's outlived its usefulness for baby, we can move it to the back of the pantry door.  :)

I added some shelving on the bottom of the closet and some storage bins.  The bottom row of bins are from Michael's and they have toys and books inside.  The middle row is from Target's new Pillowfort line.  I love these!  They have toys and bottles and extra diapers.  And the top row has a ballerina trunk which will one day be filled with dress up clothes, and a pink basket full of blankets.  Her clothes are organized by size with dividers that I bought on Etsy.  She has plenty of cute outfits!! :)

I am so excited to share our nursery with you.  And even more excited to welcome our baby girl home to her pink room in 6 short weeks!  We wouldn't be quite so well-supplied without the generosity of our friends and family.  Thanks to everyone for their love and support.  We can't wait to share our journey with all of you!
