Baby’s Nursery

The Nursery is finally ready for sweet Baby F! There has been so much love and time poured into this room to make it the perfect place for baby. I’m so excited about how it turned out!



I picked out all of the fabric from Sirs in Franklin, TN. My mom then made all of the bedding, curtains, dresser runner and the changing pad cover. The rug came from Pottery Barn.



For the ottoman, my mom and I recovered an old one I’ve had since college to make it match the overall design I was going for.

My mom also made that blanket on the back of the chair using leftover fabric. The yellow daisy pillow came from Pottery Barn.


Above the chair are a couple DIY projects I did.


I’m in love with this mercury glass lamp I found at Steinmart!


The silver duck came from Pottery Barn, nightstand and frame from TJ Maxx, the farmer’s market basket (holding pacifiers) and coaster are from Anthropologie.


Above the bed, I decided to keep it simple. A friend of the family crocheted the sweater. The moment I received it, I knew it’d look perfect hanging about Baby F’s crib in a frame. The two frames on either sides came from Kirkland’s and currently hold our maternity photos.



I’m in LOVE with this BlaBla doll from blabla kids. Their whole site is ADORABLE!


This baby mobile was a DIY project found on Pinterest.


I LOVE what it adds to the room!


Baby’s Book Nook.


I found that old shutter door at an antique store in town.


The mirror and shelf both came from Home Goods.


Below the shelf is a rocking chair passed down a few generations


along with a basket to hold some of baby’s things.


We bought this from Hobby Lobby for extra storage and it has turned out to be one of my favorite pieces in the room.


The baby blocks are a Pinterest DIY. I bought the blocks on Amazon and painted them to match the rest of the colors in the room. A friend of mine had done this in her baby’s room and I thought it was an adorable idea!

The bunny canister is from Target and holds cotton balls.

The painted picture in the frame was done by a friend of mine and given to me at one of my showers.

The baby booties were crocheted by the same family friend that crocheted the sweater hanging over the crib.


I decided to use the wall above the changing table as my focus wall of the room.


The antique style shelf came from Kirkland’s.

The spoon, plate, and brass frame were mine when I was little. The fork and brass rocking horse came from a local antique store.

The bird cage is from Babies R Us and the “To the Moon and Back” frame is a Target find.


The canvas dandelion painting was done by my mom. The hook came from Anthropologie and hanging on it is one of my mom’s baby shoes.


The wood palate is a DIY project made by Cody. He bought the wood, built the palate and stained the letters onto it. I absolutely love that he made this for sweet baby and how it fits so perfectly in the room!


On the floor next to the changing table is an iron planter I found at Hobby Lobby! I got the baskets at Target to place inside so that small items wouldn’t fall through. There’s still lots of empty space in there to hold baby’s items!


Now, to wait on Baby F’s arrival! Looking forward to it ANY day now!
