Project Nursery- Project Complete!

Just in time for Sweet P's arrival, her nursery is ready for her... and so are her parents!  When we first decided to buy this house, this room was going to be the guest room.  That plan lasted for about a week and a half, until we got the best news in the whole world.

It has been fun looking for ideas and coming up with many of my own.  BIG THANK YOU's go out to everyone who helped!

 
The recliner belonged to my husband's great-grandfather who passed away when my husband was little.  Only "Pop" was allowed to sit in the chair, and only my husband was allowed to sit with him.  It is in really great condition and has so much sentimental value.
 
The blanket on the chair was made by my grandmother.  The details in the knitting are breath-taking.
 
I made the window treatments and bought the curtains at Target. The crib is from Walmart. It's one of the convertible kinds, so it can grow with her.  The adorable owl xylophone is a gift from Aunt Jessica and Uncle Anthony, both of whom, along with my husband, are super-talented percussionists! I found the mirror and the frames at a flea market and fixed them up. The yellow zig zag picture is a gift from Aunt Ryan, who gave it to us the day we found out we were having a girl.
 
 
I adore my chevron striped wall! It turned out so well! My mom and Ryan helped me get it finished, and without their help, it would have been much more difficult.
 
The pictures on the wall are the two sides of our family: Hubby's is on top and mine is on bottom. The cross I purchased at a craft fair at a friend's church.  The lion is a Scentsy Buddy from Aunt Lize. It makes her whole room smell like baby powder! The pink lamp holds a pretty neat surprise when you turn it on.
 
The changing table/dresser combo was truly a labor of love...
 
 
I also made the wreath hanging from her door. 
I bought a scrapbook to use to keep track of the pregnancy and Parker's growing up.  I haven't been able to do a whole lot with it, but it hangs right outside her door in the hallway on a plate holder.  MUCH better than tucking it away in a book shelf. That will be my project for the summer.
 
So there it is! Baby girl's nursery reveal.  Don't you just love it when what you picture in your head is exactly what you get? Now that this room is done, we can move on to the rest of the house... eventually :)

  3. Great job on the chevron wall. I painted stripes and it took a while so I know the chevron needed a lot of patience!
