This room is by far my favorite in our house. When decorating I try to keep things from being too girly since I share the place with my husband, who isn’t the biggest fan of florals and fluffy pillows, but this room gave me full permission to girl it up. 😉
This room has been many things so far – a guest room, an office when I worked at home for my previous job, a storage space for instruments and music/office for my current job, etc. And although its primary purpose is now a nursery, we didn’t want to lose the space as a guest room because our families live so far from us. It’s always been important to have spaces for them to stay when they visit! Thankfully it’s a pretty big room, so Adeline still gets to have most of it to herself!
I hunted for the perfect dresser for quite some time… and by hunted, I mean literally looked everywhere for the perfect piece that didn’t break the bank. I got this dresser, nightstand, “let’s have an adventure box,” horse wall art and bookshelf from The Robin’s Egg, an awesome local antique home decor store that I scour pretty much weekly for new finds.
The changing table is my old desk, disguised by Duck Egg Blue Annie Sloan chalk paint – something I’d been wanting to do for ages but had put off because I was intimidated. For all of you wannabe furniture painters out there, do it! It was soo easy, especially with the help of some friends :). I still need to do the final waxing piece to finish it off (thanks Adeline for surprising us so early!!), but it looks great as is until I get it done.
Those same amazing friends helped me take the leap into making my own curtains!! And by helping me take the leap, I mean basically doing it for me. Thanks again, guys!! I ordered the fabric from Fabric.com (exact print here) and my lovely friend Angela spent several hours ironing on stitch witchery to make them come to fruition! I’m so glad we went with this fun, colorful pattern. It adds so much to the space!
Finally, one of my favorite parts of the room is the rocking horse. Jacob’s grandfather made it for him after he was born and his grandma shipped it to us a couple years ago all the way from Oregon! It’s so special that Adeline will get to play on the same rocking horse her dad did, made by her great-grandpa!
Wondering where we found something?
