Project Nursery

I started off with a specific vision for Lorelei's nursery and completely strayed from it, but I ended up loving the way it turned out. I really wanted teal and candy apple red, however, I soon realized it was extremely hard to find the exact colors I was envisioning. I know it is totally crappy of me not to just make everything I needed myself, but I really just didn't have time. I started a new job in May, I was still going to grad school, we had family coming to visit, 5 baby showers, and lots of home projects we needed done before Lorelei's arrival.

Below are some photos I pinned that were the most similar to what I had envisioned. I was able to find a lot of these items on Etsy, but they were out of my price range. Plus I wanted to be able to register for stuff so it would be free!

At first I really didn't want to do owls even though I love them because they are so trendy. However, I decided it was really dumb to not do something I really liked just because other people like it too. So I found this bedding set at Target that was a good starting off point for me, but I didn't want her room to be too pastel-ish.

Luckily, my awesome sister-in-law and mother-in-law were willing to make the baby a quilt that had more of the color scheme I wanted. Below is a picture of all of us at my Ohio baby shower with the beautiful quilt.

After that I really just registered and got stuff that I thought was cute and hoped it would all come together. 

My friend Heather created this adorable custom wall art in her Etsy shop Calley Flower Designs. It matched the target owl stuff perfectly!

The diaper stacker is a discontinued pattern from Babies R Us. I actually registered for this first and then they put it on clearance so I had to pick something else. You can also see the Amy Butler baby bag I made hanging up next to it. The sign above was just something my aunt sent Lorelei as a gift, but it goes pefectly. 

Here is the inside of the crib with the quilt. 

I made the curtains with some major help from Artfully Caroline. I was 9.5 months pregnant and at my whits end while trying to make these babies. They only ended up ruffled because I totally cut them all the wrong length. Giant craft fail. The cubbies are just from Ikea. Sorry the light is so terrible!

This vinyl wall decal was a gift from my friend Dianna over at Craft A Spell

I'm totally going to hang something else here, but I'm still trying to figure that out. Maybe a vinyl monogram?

My sister-in-law even made me this cool runner so I won't scratch the top of the dresser. 

All in all, I really like her room. There are a few things still in progress, but at least it was done before she got here! I really liked how I was able to incorporate all kinds of different colors, but it still kind of goes together. Sometimes I get really hung up on stuff matching the right shade. Hopefully she will be able to grow with this room and I won't be redoing it in 3 years!
