(I felt like I had to come up with one of those crazy theme names. The fabric has a vintage feel and there are flowers, sooo…? Will suggests “not very vintage, vintage nursery.”)
It’s been quite a journey to turn the former “cat room” into a nursery fit for a baby girl. We’ve replaced all the flooring in the house this summer (well, except for the bathroom since we did that when we moved in), which means moving basically EVERYTHING in the house. Because, dude, EVERYTHING is on the floor somehow! And since we have a small house with no basement, that means moving things from room to room continually until the project is done. And since the nursery is the only room that we weren’t currently using (the only other rooms are our bedroom, the bathroom, kitchen, living room, and office), it was sort of the last place everything ended up. Anyway…here’s how it has progressed. (Warning…lots of pictures.)
Crib – Da Vinci Piedmont (similar to this)
Dresser/Changing Table – Da Vinci Piedmont
Yellow Drawer Thing – Ross (spraypainted)
Glider – Stork Craft Tuscany
Rug – Garland Flower Power from WalMart
Curtains – Hometrends Alium from WalMart
(Temporary) closet curtains – Twin sheets in yellow from Target
Diaper bin/toy basket – Ross
Window Garland – Made by me! Got the idea from Pinterest.
Crib skirt and bumpers were made by my mother-in-law. I think we looked at ALL the appropriate fabric in 2 different JoAnne’s stores before I finally decided.
Mobile and tissue flowers made by my BFF.
In its former life as the cats' room. I still feel soooo bad for having to take down their window seat, as there's really no other window it'll work in.
Welcome to the holding room for a house full of laminate hardwood. And a bunch of other junk.
OK, so the floor is done. But there are still some uhhh....issues.
Look at the rug, though! Cute, right? WalMart - $19. For realz.
The cat has basket radar. The dog has cat radar.
working on arrangement of gallery frames...
working on placement of gallery frames
large frame and silhouette were in my room as a kid. All frames were cheap/already had and spraypainted. Some art is just placeholder until we have things like baby footprints to put there.
Yellow drawer set was purchased from Ross a long time ago - we just spraypainted it a happy yellow. Flowers bought on super-duper clearance at JoAnn Fabrics.
Some of the fabric scraps I used were prospective nursery fabric which is kind of cool to be able to keep.
Until we get real closet doors, we're just using these twin sheets on a curtain rod. I sewed a row of buttons on the top.
Mr. Flying pic is rather symbolic. I found him at Ross after we lost a pregnancy last year. Lamp was in my room when I was older (vintage with a spraypainted shade). Bead bugs were purchased on clearance from a plant nursery over the summer.
Trash can is our diaper solution (attempting no Diaper Genie). Off-white padded ottoman is filled with diapers, and can later be used for toys (Ross). The little person-looking thing is a cool Mobi nightlight.
Mobile made by my BFF. Placeholder scrapbook paper in frames above changing table (might leave one like that and use it with a wipeoff marker for notes). Will got Testudo to keep baby company. Packed hospital bag on changing table (Thirty-One).

Frog prince from IKEA years ago, knitted blanket thrifted (happened to match perfectly!)
closet is ummmmmmm full (also houses some of my sewing/craft stuff still).
The watermark font on all the pics I added today is wrong! gah. Annoying. But not uploading them all again. So, anyway…what do you think?
