Baby Girl's Sweet Floral Nursery

Before I was expecting our second baby, I kept myself busy and distracted from the grief I was facing from losing our son by daydreaming about our future nursery. I wasn't sure if we would get pregnant again but viewed my designs and dreams for the nursery decor as an act of faith and optimism and this was also the last room left to renovate in our current home.  I painted the walls one of my favorite colors, a soothing and gender-neutral greenish-gray and added board and batten to one wall. My husband also installed new flooring. As soon as I found out we were expecting a little girl, I knew I wanted to add just a touch of femininity by using the most gorgeous floral wallpaper on an accent wall. The wallpaper is removable and peel and stick so it was very easy to install! Her nursery is still pretty neutral overall with greens, grays, and whites, but every now and then there are sweet touches of pink!

The silver bank and the sweet little bunny were both my toys from when I was a child

By thrifting and buying items second hand and then giving them a makeover, I was able to furnish the entire nursery for just over $200! The dresser above was a FREE find off of Facebook Marketplace. I painted it with white chalk paint and added inexpensive glass knobs. I also used leftover wallpaper to add some color to the large thrifted frame above the dresser that I painted with chalk paint. This was the same frame I used to make a 'just married' sign for our wedding dinner and I was happy to repurpose it here!

Wood Nursery Rocker

The crib is originally from Pottery Barn and retails for over $1,000 but I got it off of Facebook Marketplace for $150! It's super sturdy and in great condition as is the mattress. The wooden rocking chair belonged to my husband's great grandmother and it was used in his nursery as well. I made a custom cushion for it using a patio chair cushion from the dollar store as a template. 

The bookcase in the nursery was another Facebook Marketplace find that I scored fo $40. It definitely needed some love to turn it from basic office furniture to cute and nursery-worthy. I removed the faux wood back panel and added a sheet of beadboard and then painted it with white chalk paint to give it a cottage feel. It'll be perfect for storing lots of toys, books, and other baby items.

 Our dog Stanley has already made himself at home in the nursery and LOVES lying on the rug in there! I still have a few items I'd like to add, like a lamp and some picture ledges, but I'm so pleased with how this space turned out, a huge change from where it began. We can't wait to bring our sweet little girl home!
