I saw this cute little nursery from a party link a few weeks ago, (do you know how far behind I am on featuring your projects? Probably! any who…) Rebecca form This Present Life is a fellow Texan who was showing off her daughters little Shabby chic bedroom! Enjoy!:
If you’re anything like me, you LOVE to look at other people’s homes. I love to see how other people have decorated, arranged their furniture, hidden away toys, etc… So this week has been so much fun for me because Poppies at Play has been hosting a Parade of Homes on their blog. I’ve been on this redecorating kick lately and seeing all of the AMAZING homes on this Parade has really inspired me. I was already planning to redecorate our living room/dining room (which doubles as a guest room/craft room) this summer. But since seeing these beautiful homes, I’ve also begun a Master Bedroom redo (stay tuned for before/after once it’s finished).
Anyway, Poppies at Play is having a link party this weekend where EVERYONE can participate in the Parade of Homes. So I thought I’d share my daughter’s nursery with you.
Once I found out I was having a girl, I was SO excited to decorate my daughter’s nursery. And I immediately knew that I was going to go with a Shabby Chic theme. It was so much fun decorating her room and I am really proud of how it turned out. We started by painting it a light pink. When we first painted it, it actually glowed pink the afternoon sun! But once the furniture moved in, the pink was toned down quite a bit. I found the curtains (pink, of course) at Linen’s N Things when they were going out of business. I think I got them for around $10 per pair!
The bedroom set is actually the set that my sister and I used when we were little. I have always used this set as my guest room furniture, but I am so happy to be able to pass it on to my daughter. The bedding on the twin bed is from the Shabby Chic collection at Target. The blue and white plates are plates that I have been collecting for some time and I love the effect they have when hung together above the bed.
The crib is on the opposite side of the room. I bought the letters for her name from this Etsy shop and they came out so cute. The yellow chair is the only “new” piece of furniture I bought for the room. I bought it on Craigslist and I LOVE it. My mom and I drove almost an hour to get it, but it was TOTALLY worth it. Besides a crib, I think one of the most important pieces of furniture in any nursery is a comfy chair!
And here’s her Binky Bag (my creation for storing extra pacifiers so I don’t have to hunt for an extra one in the middle of the night. You can find them here in my Etsy shop).
The shelf above her changing table actually used to be black with white knobs. I painted it a pale yellow and changed out the knobs to some cute purple glass ones bought at Home Depot. The vinyl wall decals are from this Etsy shop. I put them there to give my daughter something to look at while I was changing her diaper, and she has loved them since she was a newborn. (You can see another of the decals “growing” out of the twin bed in the pictures above).
