More Peeks into the Nursery

Baby D's room is my happy place - literally. I can have the most rough day and step into the makings of her room and I am instantly at peace. It isn't even done yet, but it is already so sweet. Bill feels it too. We are really enjoying it.

Here are some more peeks. Again, when it is all done I'll do a full "reveal", but until then you can see some of the recent progress.

This is a really simple picture I actually got at Target, but it captures the colors of the room perfectly.

Marcie and I had originally talked about finding an orange rug, but ran into some troubles. And then we saw this... Yep, it was pretty much meant for Baby D's room.

I've seen these in the past in baby's rooms on blogs, but these were a great deal at B, B & B!

This bookcase was a steal and with some coats of paint it is perfect for the room. I snagged the two frames (in the perfect colors) at a garage sale for a buck for both!

Do you know how hard it is to find an orange changing pad cover? This one was perfect though and the photo doesn't come close to capturing the cushiness.

This little guy. He was just too cute. I still need to make a fabric cover for the shade. Evelyn - help!

OK, so maybe I sorta kinda saw this idea on a popular handmade items website that potentially rhymes with "betsy", but it was almost $100! Nothing that an afternoon of drawing patterns, cutting fabric and felt and sticky fingers couldn't resolve. I came up with this little owl family - in the patterns of the room! Bill was so impressed with me that I made it (have to admit, I was too!).

As sad as I was that my painted white drawer handle idea didn't work out, once I let it go I'm pleased with the outcome of the dresser. This dresser was a $25 steal. I'm still so pleased with it!

That's it for now - more to come for sure!

Everything looks so cute! I love how many things you have redone to be so adorable! I need to go to a fleamarket! I've never been to one!

Ahhh, thanks so much. It does feel good to recreate something on your own rather than pay top dollar and pick it out of a Land of Nod catalog!

OMG! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your site! I was desperately looking for nursery ideas for my little one (due in june) and so far my only idea was orange walls (for a girl) with white and multicolor accents, and green walls (for a boy) with white and multicolor accents as well...Seeing your ideas gave me the inspiration I needed! Now I have a set color theme and know where to shop for those awesome wall flower decals! Thanks!
