Emma’s Nursery Reveal

WARNING: PREPARE FOR PICTURE OVERLOAD! :o) Once hubby and I decided to start trying to expand our family, I immediately began planning our future baby’s nursery. Who am I kidding? I began planning the nursery as soon as we got married. Maybe before. I’m a girl. We do these things. Sorry I’m not sorry. Thanks to the wonderful world of Pintrest, I began collecting a plethora of adorable nursery ideas. I never really wanted a theme for the nursery. I didn’t want it to babyish. I wanted something cute and eclectic and something that could easily transition from baby to big kid. I think that this nursery hits all those points, and I love it! So without further ado, Emma’s nursery – Emma Nursery 8 I saw this nursery on Pintrest and loved the display above the crib. So I glitterized (Is that even a word? It is now!) wooden letters and raided my fabric stash. So pretty! P.S. Did you know that they make glitter spray paint? Go get some! Now. Seriously. Its awesome! Emma Nursery 10 Emma Nursery 9 I saw these cute little felt taxidermy heads on Etsy. Some people think they’re weird. I think they’re fantastic! However, they cost like $30 a head (Worth it! They take forever to make)! So I figured out how to sew my own. Not perfect, but I’m pretty proud of them. I love the metal storage rack as a bookshelf. The books are facing out so they’re easier for baby to see and more decorative. Emma Nursery 4 Emma Nursery 2 The little alcove by the window makes a perfect reading nook. I wanted a lamp above the chair, but also wanted to be able to turn it off and on easily while holding a tiny, squirming human. So I ran to Target and bought a wireless light switch like this one. I hung the switch right next to the chair so I don’t even have to move to flip the switch. Pinned a nursery with a mobile made of paper cranes. I love the idea, so I made one too! Emma Nursery 3 My sister ordered this print for my baby shower. She had all the guests sign little “balloons” and stick them on. Of course Emma was born a couple days ahead of her due date, but it was nothing a Sharpie couldn’t fix. Adds character! :o) Emma Nursery 1 Do you know how hard it is to get good pictures of a small space? I literally climbed out the window so I could get these shots! Emma Nursery 6 The coral dresser was the first nursery decision I made. Got the idea here, found a dresser on Craigslist, and went to town. The hanging storage holds all the many, many, many diapers she needs. Emma Nursery 7 What’s a nursery without some super cute (and funny) art? P.S. Chalkboard wall! Emma Nursery 11 And the best part? The beautiful things that were made with love and have special meaning. Like the rocking horse my great-grandfather made for me and the quilt my mom made especially for her granddaughter. Emma Nursery 5 I worked long and hard on this room (I seriously painted it like 3 times. Unnecessarily. Long story. Bad memories) and I love it! What do you think?

  1. I love this nursery! I think I pinned your image last week with her name surrounded by embroidery hoops! The art above the changing table is HILARIOUS! Well done! That’s a lot of exclamation marks! 🙂

    1. Thanks! The hoop art was so simple and pretty. A nice easy DIY for a woman who didn’t have a whole lot of energy when I was pregnant. And I LOVE the changing table art too! We don’t take ourselves too seriously around here 🙂

  2. Love your taste and everything about this room. The taxidermy heads are completely charming, and the wire shelves add a sophisticated touch. So does the pink dresser. I could go on… Lucky little girl!

    1. Thanks so much! I wanted something eclectic and fun, but also something she could grow into. Goodness knows babies are expensive enough without having to redecorate again and again!
