Final Pictures of Grace's nursery.

I realized this morning that I never posted the final pictures of Grace's nursery! And over at Kelly's Korner this morning, she is having a blog carnival on kids' rooms. So I thought I'd go ahead and take the time to take the final pictures of her nursery and share! (Now that she will be 1 year old in 3 months...but hey- better late than never, right? :)

The first thing we did Geoff did was paint the nursery. It took me a while to commit....but we finally went with this 2-toned green striped walls. Each stripe is about 12 inches. It was a little bold for me to stray away from our khaki walls, but I am glad I did.


This picture is basically right when you walk in the door. I got the wooden letters for her name at Hobby Lobby. They are normally $3.00 a piece, but I got them for 50% off. They were already white, but had some dinks and scraths in them, so I repainted the top of the letters white....and I painted the sides an eggplant color that matches her quilt (which is the basis of her room decor).


Here is a better picture of this wall....


I decorated this lamp shade with a fabric from her quilt. I had originally only used ribbon at the top and bottom, but have since made it a little more foofoo and added this beaded ribbon. {Please ignore the dust on the table. Ahem.}


We had Parker make these paintings for her little sister and I love them. It was a great way to get her involved, even though, at her age at the time....she was really just into the painting part. :) We placed them above her crib.




On this little wall is the changing table and her calendar that I use to jot down her milestones. Let's face it...we're there every day! :) I try to keep a pen handy in her wipes basket for easy access. {Please excuse the 3 year old. She was using that step stool to try and see what she could find in the changing table drawer. It's amazing what she can get away with when I am busy doing something.}

A closer look at the changing table. And I really like this mirror above it. She likes to sit up and look at herself......she can also see me in the mirror, too.....and so she does a double take....me...then me in the mirrror....me.....then me in the mirror.



I also made her this nifty bow holder using a canvas, ribbons, and hot glue from a tutorial found at My Magic Mom. I love how it has so much space!

That's her nursery! Ready or not....it's done! :)

I really love your walls! If we weren't in an apartment, I SO would paint Cohen's walls!! I was thinking of getting a mirror to put by the changing pad on the dresser, and now you've convinced me!
