The crib is the first thing you see when you walk in the room. We finally settled on having it under the mantle long ways to keep the back wall from feeling too crowded. It was in the middle of the room in Ella's nursery and we loved being able to walk around it and I'm so glad we placed it here because people can stand on either side of it to get a good peek at her when she's sleeping. The bedding was in Ella's nursery and is Bubbles by Bacati in pink and green. We have a geometric sheet from Target and another owl printed one from Pottery Barn Kids. I bought an extra PBK sheet to cover pillows for both the crib and chair.
Above the mantle is a pretty pink mirror from Homegoods that I snagged for $39. It was already the perfect shade of pink, but drilling into concrete walls to anchor something so heavy isn't as easy as it might sound! The four pictures that flank the mirror are courtesy of Ella and in frames I found at Hobby Lobby for $2 each. All it took was a coat of cream spray paint and they were ready to hang. I do plan on filling the two frames on the mantel with photographs at some point, but for now I'm happy with the scrapbook paper.
The changing table wall is directly opposite of the crib and turned out just how I envisioned it. The dresser made quite a transformation and the inexpensive pulls from Hobby Lobby made a huge difference in how it looks. There is usually a changing pad covered in cream chenille where Sophie & the wire basket sit in this picture. The pink file drawer and fabric covered box hold lotions and potions for changing and the dresser itself holds linens and tiny baby clothes. The gallery wall above the table was compiled from old frames that were painted to match one another. The ballerina pictures were in my room growing up and the pretty pink lamp was another HomeGoods steal.
And just in case you needed another gratuitious picture of my sweet girls, these are among my absolute favorites from Sophie's newborn session. Ella was so excited to have pictures of she and Sophie in the same spot. All photos in this post are courtesy of my sweet sister, K, of course. You can see the rest of our newborn and nursery photos here.
Want to remember where we started and how we got here? This is what the room looked like just before it's transformation began. Click here to see the first few projects we started in the nursery. One of my favorite transformations was the old dresser we used as a changing table and the treatment on the wall above it. This post is all about how a little elbow grease makes a lot of impact when you have painted wooden ceilings AND a fabulous husband. Sophie's crib helped determine how we would decorate her room. Remember when my mom made fabulous curtains and my sweet daddy hung them up? Soon after, we made a comfy place to rock our sweet girl. These lights might be my favorite thing in the whole room! This was clearly the cheapest project we completed, but makes a big impact in the corner.
