Nursery Reveal

I apologize for posting late today, as I'm a little off my normal routine this week. I haven't forgotten about my Week 36 Update either. I'm hoping to post that on Wednesday. As for today, I wanted to reveal Charlotte's nursery! You've seen most of it through various DIY posts, but I think it's more fun to look at the finished product, don't you agree?

A lot of people are shocked that I didn't go with a straight Disney theme for Charlotte's nursery. To be honest, I didn't want it to be over the top. I felt like once you started getting the bedding sets and wall art, it would just look like a Disney explosion. Usually I'm all for such a thing, but I wanted this room to be special and unique. I wanted to create as much as I could on my own. so as far as themes go, I like to call this room "My Favorite Things". As you scroll through the pictures, you will see a little Disney, Lilly Pulitzer and shabby chic all come together in one place.

The chandalier was one of the first pieces I bought as soon as we found out we were having a little girl! It's from Ikea and was the perfect inspiration piece to get the rest of the room to come together.

I'm borrowing (using this term loosely as my mom reads this here blog) this glider from my mom. i convinced her that I could make better use of it than she was since it just sat in her hallway upstairs. You will see the quilt draped over the back, yeah mom made that. It's pretty awesome don't you think?!

Here it is up close.
She used Lilly Pulitzer fabric for all the little dresses and the rest of the fabric is from other projects throughout the nursery to help tie everything together.

Ok, I lied. The first thing you probably notice in this picture is the fact that the dresser is missing it's drawer knobs. This is the last thing I need to get done and it has become the bain of my existance.

No little girls' room is complete without a place to store all those bows and headbands! I made this bow holder (link to tutorial below) and decided it was missing something: a place for all those headbands. All I did was take "S" hooks and screw them into the frame and Voila!

My mom had some leftover Lilly fabric from the quilt so I decided to make a couple of pillow cases for the crib and glider. Just another way to tie the Disney/Lilly theme together.

One of my favorite projects was this bookcase. You can't really see in this picture (check out the one above it), but I painted and decoupaged it with scrapbook paper and a Disney Lilly Pulitzer print that I printed off from online that was done decades ago!

In this picture you can see the wall art above the crib is Disney Princess silhouettes backed with the same scrapbook paper from the bookcase.

So there you have it. I really couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. The whole process was definitely a labor of loved (pun intended) and it came together one little project at a time. Below is a list of all the project tutorials I did for your reference.

  1. OMG! I love this! You created such a beautiful palace for your little princess. I really admire your hard work and creativity. Charlotte has an awesome Mommy :)

  2. This is such a great little girl's nursery! I absolutely love the color of the walls. Most people, I think, would have gone with pink, but that green, along with all of the accents and knick-knacks screams Princess! Wonderful work!

  3. I love the room design! The green walls are so pretty

  4. I know you were excited to post this! Everything looks great, I really love that you went with green and pink. The quilt is gorgeous..I think I've only used my glider once since I've had Savanna. Whoops.

  5. What a pretty room!!! It will look even better with your little girl in there :)

  6. Awh I love it!!! I'm not even preggers or having kids yet and pele always ask me about what theme their room will be. I think it will be similar to this... Not too disney, just a touch. Classy and not overwhelming.

  7. Love the color of the paint,
    the chandelier,
    and that gorgeous quilt!!
    What a lucky baby!
