My Daughter's Room

My daughter, hehe (still giddy) I have a daughter!  Tyler Vivian is 4 months old now and I have still not posted photos of her nursery.  It took me months to decide the design direction I would take for her room and it all started with this chandelier.

Colorful chandelier and painted ceiling medallion.  My inspiration for the room.
 Most of the room was DIYed in some way or another.  My crib was originally black, which was not going to work for this room.  I know it is not your typical nursery but I am super excited to share it with you.  Enjoy!

Plank sign with spindles on each side for over the daybed.  I made the bolster pillows on the bed and the coordinating stool.  The large pink pillows and shaggy fabric pillows are from Home Goods.  Here is the link on how I made the stool out of a free electrical wire spool from Home Depot.

The princess and I when she was one week old

Crib painted green.  Beautiful bedding designed by muah and made by my talented mother.

I had been searching for a mirror for over the crib and was really inspired by one from I.O. Metro but did not want to pay the price for it.  My sister spotted this mirror at Hob Lob for 50% off and snatched it up for me, a little orange paint and it was perfect.

Bookshelves were a must for the room but I did not want to pay to have custom ones built soooooo IKEA saved the day.  I purchased two Kilby bookshelves, cut out a decorative topper, added crown molding and painted.  LOVE them!!

Cool vintage chair that belong to my grandmother.  I did not have a chair for the room because we decided to keep my glider/rocker downstairs and it didn't match the room anyway.  I remembered sitting in the chair as a child but figured it was long gone so I searched craigslist and found a few similar.  Before I purchased I was telling my mom about it and she said she thought meme still had it.  She did! and was thrilled that i wanted it for Tyler's room.
My mom and i made the curtains and i whipped out the purple cornice board.

I know it is a little much for most but once I decided to do a colorful room i just dove all in.  My good friend Marcie gave me her grandmothers old furniture, that is the before pic top right.  A little stencil action and a lot of time and she looks fabulously bright!  Top knobs are from Hob Lob and the handles I made from an old bead necklace and painted them green.


Antlers as hooks.....just because :-)
