The Big Nursery Reveal

Who’s ready for the highly anticipated nursery reveal?! I’m pretty sure the first night after we found out we were pregnant I began dreaming about designing the nursery for our little one:) So get comfy, grab an iced tea and enjoy!
nursery_reveal1Here’s the view when you first walk in the door. A decorator friend of mine did a nursery consultation several months ago which I stuck to pretty closely with a few twists of my own. I loved her vision and how it all came together!
nursery_reveal3Y’all, this dresser was a major labor of love by Ben for his little girl! He loosely used this tutorial to add the legs, then after 4 coats of paint, 3 coats of Acrylacq and spray painting the original hardware ORB later, it was finished! This was my dresser as a child so it has huge sentimental value to me.
nursery_reveal6This beautiful real cotton wreath was given to me by all my sweet hostesses at my Memphis shower and I think it really brings the entire nursery together! It adds texture and that “Southern” vintage feel I wanted. Look at those cute babies:)
nursery_reveal4I’m still absolutely loving the classic black crib which initially caught me off guard. I opted for no crib bumper and simple white sheets. My mom helped me make the crib skirt and I used the leftover fabric to add a couple of bows.
nursery_reveal7I got all of the art from Etsy and the frames are from IKEA.
nursery_reveal10I looked everywhere for a simple mobile and finally found the perfect one at a consignment sale. It was 1/2 off day so I scored this Pottery Barn find for $2.50!
nursery_reveal11These pillows were custom made for me by my friend Lauren. She used the same ribbon that lines the curtains.
nursery_reveal13This is my favorite baby gift! My mom (who has never quilted) decided to make a baby quilt for her granddaughter. I. absolutely. love. it. She worked so hard picking out the fabric and spent every waking moment trying to finish it before my shower. It is vintage, timeless and perfect!
nursery_reveal12I wrote a post about the curtains, but since then we also added a bamboo shade for extra room darkening and to break up all the white with some texture. We left the white blinds so that we can still have some privacy.
nursery_reveal8Originally we wanted a white rocker, but after finding this one on Craigslist for a fraction of the price we went for it. Since there is cream in the rug I think it totally works! The rug and rustic table came from My mom helped me make the chevron floor pouf which I blogged about here.
nursery_reveal9I got this adorable print from the same Etsy store which has a golden retriever in a pile of leaves. This is our way of honoring our first child, Cali, in the nursery:)
nursery_reveal2Here’s a little bit of a wider shot of this side of the room. The lamp on the table came from Target and the rustic wood coat rack came from an antique mall. I love the little details hidden all around this room.
nursery_reveal15I found these cute and practical drawer organizers at IKEA. I’m still waiting to get over saying “Awww” every time I pick up a piece of cute baby girl clothing.
nursery_reveal16We knew from the beginning that we wanted to use the dresser as a changing station. We just purchased a changing pad which is secured to the dresser and the brown polka dot cover is from Target.
nursery_reveal17I still have a lot of organizing to do, but her little closet is coming together and the cute closet dividers are already coming in handy!
nursery_reveal18The car seat and main stroller will go in the car and the BOB jogging stroller will more than likely live in our dining room once we start using it regularly.
nursery_reveal19In keeping it real, this is what the nursery really looks like with all the baby gear out and about. Where are you supposed to put all of this stuff?!
middle_br1Here’s a “before” shot of what this room looked like just a few short months ago. It’s come a LONG way and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

I don’t think I could possibly find another angle of the nursery to take a pic of so it’s time to wrap up this reveal party. I’ll be 37 weeks this Friday so our baby girl could come any day now and we absolutely can’t wait to meet her! What do you think of our non-traditional, non-themed, vintage-inspired, simple nursery?
