Baby Betty’s Nursery

I’ve been meaning to share my baby girl’s nursery photos. Who knew having a new baby would be so time consuming…HA! Now 12 weeks later I finally have a free minute to do so. I had SO much fun decorating this room and would love to share it with all of you!

We are currently renting a house (and hopefully closing on a new home in December) so I knew I couldn’t get too permanent with the design. My new best friend turned out to be those command hanging hooks & picture hangers. I used them to hang just about everything in the room. Including the Baby Shower invitations.

With a simple grey base with a white chair rail, I wanted to use white furniture and bright color accents. The only two “new” pieces in her nursery are the rocking chair (Babies R Us) and the crib (Target). The rest were refurbished pieces from friends, including the rug from Urban Outfitters.

I made the fabric bunting out of scraps of fabric and ribbons left over from the bedding my mother sewed. She did such an amazing job!

She even made this gorgeous diaper stacker to match:

I really didn’t have a “theme” with the nursery. Just went with colors I love and pieces from my own nursery. I wanted a vintage girly feel for sure.

Including this music box that was mine when I was a baby, and a vintage wall art frame from an antique store.

And probably my favorite piece in the room is the gorgeous needlepoint my own grandmother made for me. My mother gave it to me when we announced our pregnancy and I had it framed for Betty.

I’m so pleased with how it turned out. I think Betty loves it as well! I had so much fun…maybe I’ll do it again some day soon…now that’s funny!
