A while back I posted a sneak peak of Lily's nursery. Well, Lily just turned one and the nursery is finally done! Aside from a butterfly mobile that I want to buy or possibly make, I'd say her room is pretty much complete! Yes, it only took a year but keep in mind our builder finished her room the day before she was born and they didn't finish the punchlist until she was 3 months old. It is much easier getting a room ready before the baby is born!
Lily slept in our room until she was 3 months old. She was also sick with colds several months after starting daycare so she slept in a rocker in her room until she was able to crawl out of it (pictured at end of this post). When we moved her to a crib, we removed the bumper for extra safety precautions so the bumper is for picture purposes.
Here is a view from the doorway.
Before I go much further, below is the before picture. This is the same view of the room when it was our son's room. We enclosed the window and moved the closet to accommodate the addition. Now on with the new nursery room tour. We painted the walls Leaf Bud (Lowe's Valspar paint). The crib is Graco's Lauren Classic Convertible crib in Espresso. The rug is the Circo Polka Dot rug from Target. The butterflies were on clearance at Babies R Us, the letters are from Michaels.
Below is is a close up of the bedding. The bedding is the Bananafish Lily Collection at Target. We created a small sitting area where I rock my little angel. We had a small TV here so I could catch up on worldly events (or HGTV) while nursing. The mobile overhead was intended to keep Lily entertained while eating but it become more decorative since Lily prefers interaction and spend this time reading. The rocking chair is from Walmart.com. The Butterfly Pillow is a DIY project.
The room is 10×11. We had to move a wall in a foot to add a hallway for two new rooms so Lily's room has been about maximizing the space. I needed a spot for a lamp so we used a cubby storage unit for the lamp and to store books, toys and a few decorative items. The cubical storage is ClosetMaid from Target.
The lamp was one of the first DIY projects I tackled. It was before I started blogging so I don't have it documented but I provided a link to the tutorial I used in the Lighten Up post.
The fabric I used for the lamp shade is the same I used for the curtains and the memo board. These are all made from twin sheet sets that were on clearance at Target. I still have extra material that I may use for another toddler dress or skirt.
Lily's hand me down Hemnes Ikea dresser doubles as a changing table. When we moved to our new master bedroom we lost a lot of wall space as our new bedroom is more open. We didn't have a place to put our dresser so we moved it to Lily's room. It stores extra diapers, wipes, blankets, pjs, sunhats, bibs, accessories bath towels and wash clothes (Lily has very sensitive skin so we still wash her items separately in non-hypoallergenic detergents). Her dresser also holds the Bjorn and has extra room for any other storage needs.
All that's remaining are the decorative items and accessories.
The butterflywall decals are from Target but I've seen them at Khol's and Homegoods for less. This are easy to remove versus wall vinyl that sometimes rips off the dry wall.
In picture frames over the rocking chair have Lily's handprint and footprint at 6 weeks old. The frames were from Target. The mobile was from JCP.com.
On the wall over Lily's crib is an inspirational quote wall decal I purchased from Etsy.com. I wanted something that she could keep through her toddler and preschool years.
Other items to highlight
The frame is a mirror that broke. The frame was to nice to waste. I just spray painted it and filled it with a scrapbook butterfly.
The bunting was left over from Lily's Birthday Bash.
Thank you for visiting my site! I hope you enjoyed the tour of Lily's room. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions! Of course I couldn't resist including a few pictures of Lily in her space.
