Nursery #2

I swear you blink, and life has passed another year. I obviously haven't kept up with my craft blogging, and I wish I still had time to do so, but with my company doing newborn props and life in general, there is really no time left. We moved into our new home about a year and a half ago, and there is a tiny 8x10 (really 8x8 of usable space) room next to the master that works perfectly as a nursery. So about 5 months pregnant with baby girl #2, I started. Hubby helped me pick out the fabric, which was fun. We orignally thought we might have a boy, and I bought a cute little fox bonnet because I wanted a woodland styled boy nursery. When we were surprised that #2 was a girl, hubby still wanted to use the fox and orange theme through out it, so we went with it! It might be that she is a spring baby, but her nursery is way more bright/colorful than #1's. (See #1's nursery here.) So without further ado, our sweet baby girl's nursery. 

The second image is from the previous owner of the house, the third is from when we turned it into #1's nursery after moving in. #1 was not there for long though, she got moved into the bigger bedroom, and was soon converted to her big girl room. The paint we used was Silver Birch by Glidden, still one of my favorite colors. The room then sat empty for a while with a desk and a couch. 

Because we wanted to use a lot of bright colors, I went with a very soft oatmeal color for the paint. I also wanted it to have a slight modern feel, so we used just paint and decor to bring in the colors and elements. I went on the search for nursery prints on Etsy and found these that I fell in love with from Kit Chase. I made the little doll that now displays the bonnet that we bought that sort of started the whole theme. While small, the room fits cozily the big three, so I'm excited to have it. 

The camera kind of made the colors wonky in some of these, the rug is a teal/mint dusty color, not the green it shows. LOL. The blurring on the wall is where her name and letter is, which we haven't quite announced. (Well if we announce that name anyway, she may come out something else! LOL) The dresser is the one from #1's nursery. We took out all the hardware, filled all the holes and drilled new ones. We put in new hardware and I also painted a chevron pattern across the top. Most of the decor is DIY, but the frames, rug, bottles and little hook board are from Hobby Lobby, as well as the bird. A few frames from IKEA. Glider is from Babysrus, pouf and pillow were DIY. Ruffled quilt is also DIY. 

All bedding was made by me, which was a fun project. Foxes are from IKEA. (If I hear, what does the fox say, I may go into prego rage and punch a wall. Or that person in the face. Just saying. hahaha) Frames are all waiting for her newborn session. :) 

We are pretty excited for this little one to get here, and it should be within the next two weeks! So excited for Button to have a little sister, and excited to watch them grow together.
