Nursery Tour

Ok, my sweets, it’s finally time for the big reveal :)  I’m so excited to share photos of our little girl’s nursery with you.  We’ve spent the last few months painting, DIYing, and putting together furniture and I think it’s officially ready!

Care to take a peek?

I already showed you a sneak peek of my DIY rocking chair project and our painted dresser-turned-changing table, but I am in love with these honeycomb shelves, made by hand by my super talented dad!

I think the best part about being done with the nursery is having all the little necessities organized…

We’re planning on using cloth diapers, but we got these compostable ones for the first couple months while we get into the swing of life with a newborn.  I’m kind of obsessed with how tiny they are!

I tried to keep the feel of the nursery light and airy, but to keep things interesting, I played with lots of different textures.

I sewed the crib skirt myself, but I think my favorite DIY nursery project was the mobile…

Also, how cute are the baby animal pictures by Sharon Montrose?

Overall, I had a great time putting this space together and I’m happy with how it turned out!  I’m sure it’ll adjust and evolve, but for now it feels good to have this big project checked off the to-do list :)

    The nursery turned out wonderful!! I love the crib skirt. Originally I was not planning on having a skirt on our crib, but after seeing the one you made, I might just change my mind! :)

    i love the mobile. could you post a tutorial for it?

  • Kimberly writes:

    I totally forgot to take pictures as I was making the mobile, but I’ll do my best to create a tutorial. It was super easy, so even with limited photos, I think I could explain it :)

    Hi Kim! I know you’re busy with the new little one, but I’m going to be making a mobile like yours this weekend with some driftwood I found up in Banff, and I was wondering how you set it up to hang, as well as what kind of thread you strung the felted balls on? If you could let me know that would be marvelous! Thanks a million!

  • Kimberly writes:

    I used fishing line to string the felt balls and quilting thread to hang it. I tied the two sticks together with regular twine and it worked great! Good luck!!

  • Sally writes:

    Love the soft colors and those animal photos (especially the giraffe) are great!

  • Alice writes:

    Can you let me know where you got the shelf unit for the changing table? we have a similar sized changing table with no space on top for anything other than the changing pad. Your shelf unit looks like exactly what we need.

    Thanks!

    @Alice: it’s actually a shower caddy that I painted white. I used foam core and scrapbook paper to make bottoms for the wire shelves. I believe I found the original piece for about $12 at Marshall’s :)
