Nursery Tour!


If you've been following along, you may remember how I had such a hard time finding a rug...and then Amazon never told me the glider I ordered was never coming back in stock, so I had to order a new glider a month before she was born. That was fun.
So, needless to say, I am very glad that we are finally done setting up Ella's nursery, but I do love how it turned out!

Here are some pics of my sweet girl's room!

First, a {not so great} panoramic view...

{The paint color is Sherwin Williams Evening Shadow.}

We'll start with the wall by the door!
We have a plant because my mom (member of the Farmville, Virginia Garden Club) thinks that a live plant sucks all of the toxic fumes from the paint/furniture out of the room. 

Glider & Ottoman: Amazon
Table: Target {no longer available}
Lamp base and shade: Pottery Barn Kids
Sound machine: Buy Buy Baby
Bunny: Hospital gift from Dana :)
Blanket: Pottery Barn Kids {outlet}
Owl pillow: Buy Buy Baby

I totally LOVE how the alphabet wall turned out! Each guest at my baby shower decorated a letter! I have such artistic friends! {I got the letters off Etsy from here}

The picture in the middle was a gift from Travis' parents. It goes with this book, and I absolutely LOVE it.

Moving along...I was originally going to paint an old dresser we had, but I got lazy and decided that would be too much work. I'm SO glad I ordered a new one instead! In the dresser are pants, swaddles, undershirts (and other things that wouldn't hang in the closet), bows, extra crib sheets and changing pad covers, nursing supplies, and extra diapers/wipes! I used these organizers from Ikea to keep everything somewhat in order.

Dresser: Amazon
Changing pad cover: Pottery Barn Kids
Basket and liner: Pottery Barn Kids
Diaper Pail: Buy Buy Baby (love this stinky smells!)
Navy clothes hamper: Pottery Barn Kids

I found a lady on Etsy who hand paints canvases to match Pottery Barn bedding! I was so impressed with how well it matched the Mallory duvet cover!

Canvas prints: Etsy

My obsession for Etsy continues with the mobile and bunting above the crib...I sent both sellers a picture of the PBKids Mallory bedding and they matched it perfectly!

Crib sheet: Pottery Barn Kids
Crib skirt: Amazon
Blanket: gift from my parents
Bunting: Etsy
Paper mobile: Etsy
{Also you can't see it, but next to the crib is this nightlight!}

Bear play mat: Pottery Barn Kids
Bookcase: Target
Chevron bins: Pottery Barn Kids
Floating shelf: Target
Humidifier: Amazon

The owl print on the top shelf has one of my favorite quotes: 
"No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside." 
Kathryn had it on display at my baby shower and gave it to me after!
The pink frame in the middle shelf still has the same picture that Caitlin gave to us when we found out Ella was a girl!

Monitor: Buy Buy Baby
Pink lantern: Ikea (bought the day before I went into labor!)
eFg monogram: made by Kathryn :)
Owl frame: gift from Travis' parents

And onto the closet...this is probs my favorite part of her room. Makes me think of that Sex in the City quote: "I like my money right where I can see it...hanging in my closet." Haha.

On the top shelf, we have TONS of diapers and wipes. Thank goodness for that diaper shower!

A little place for all of her shoes...

Shoe organizer: Target

And then of course, the clothes. I know, it's kind of ridiculous. But in my defense, there are sizes newborn all the way up through 18 months in here! 

Clothes dividers: Etsy

And then at the bottom, we have lots of extra storage for blankets, towels, extra hangers, burp clothes, etc.

Shelf: Target
Fabric bins: Target

Oh! And last but not least, that rug!! Thank you Pottery Barn Kids, for making me spend wayyy too much money on this rug, but at least it matches perfectly!

What does Ella think of her room?! 
Here is a sneak peak from her newborn pics...

I'd say she likes it! :)

{PS-Go Tarheels tonight!}


  1. Everything looks GREAT! Yes, tons of diapers are always good!!

  2. This is perfect!!! Isn't Etsy the best?! I love the alphabet wall and that each of your shower guests helped with the letters - Ella will certainly appreciate that one day! And yes, GO HEELS!!!! :)

  3. Adorable!! It looks great. And those curtains, bunting and letters look familiar :)

  4. This is precious! And that mobile above the bed is AMAZING! I'm seriously obsessed with Etsy too.
