The newest McGee will be here in 6 weeks! Say what?!?! It’s so crazy and I’m so overwhelmed because I feel like I have nothing prepared. I do however finally have the nursery done! It’s a miracle. There are still a few finishing touches that need to be done and I’ll update the post when that happens, but I couldn’t wait any longer to show you! Her room is teeny tiny so it was kind of a challenge to keep it bright and airy like I wanted, but I love how it came out.
Working on Lennon’s nursery was a blast because we did everything ourselves and because I got to work with some amazing small shops. Although this is my second baby girl nursery it feels like the first. With Noelle, I was so sick that we literally just through a spot together. So this was really my first time and I had a blast!
First, up the crib, it was a huge amazon steal! I can never bring myself to spend a fortune on nursery furniture because you really don’t use it long. I loved the clean lines and that it was easy to put together. I actually did it myself one nap time. The crib skirt I made myself and you can find the tutorial here. That gorgeous quilt? My mother in law… she’s a quilting genius. She has 10 grandkids and has made them all a quilt.
Our dresser came from Overstock, again I love a good bargain and this was one! Putting it together involved a few cuss words but it wasn’t too bad. I love the Mid-Century vibe it gives the room, and it really does have a lot of storage space which is great because I like to shop. My kids have way more clothes than ever needed.
I almost skipped this little nook. With Noelle, I never sat in her nursery so our rocker when to waste and I’m pretty positive I will never find the time to sit in here with Lennon either, but every nursery needs this space right?! The chair I got on Wayfair, the end table was a clearance score at Target, and the pouf comes from FlyTots. She makes AMAZING custom poufs and was so fun to work with. I sent her nursery pics and she sent me photos of fabrics that would work. It really helped my poor mom brain out. Above the chair is my favorite little mobile from
This print is my favorite. It comes from KeeCreative where Robin creates these amazing watercolors by hand, to support their families desire to adopt. Can’t forget this little wooden teether from Martinas! Seriously wooden teethers are a weakness of mine. Another weakness? Adorable moccs and these are my favorite from Jaxhoo.
This shelf and branch were my biggest challenge. When we started piecing it together I hated it now I love it so much! Funny how that works right? My husband is a HUGE lover of the outdoors and we live on 150 acres so we really wanted to bring some of that into the nursery. So my husband set out to find a dead branch to cut down and I white washed it. It’s pretty stinking cute! The shelf? Yeah, that cost about $8 to make!! It’s just a board and 3 shelving brackets.
This mobile stole my heart the second I saw it on Instagram. Its from Thread and Heart , which might be run by the sweetest momma I have ever met. I was thrilled when I received this in the mail! She even makes bouquets…which I now want all of them. So much talent!
I originally had planned on ripping the carpet out of this room and laying hardwood but decided to hold off till the girls got older. I hate the carpet, HATE it! However, this rug from Lorena Canals helped tone down its ugly factor. If you haven’t heard of them yet you need to get on their site! Their rugs are a mom’s dream because they are gorgeous and you can wash them in your washing machine. I feel like most rugs that are designed with kids in mind are loud colors and just not my style, so I was so thankful to find these rugs!
Like I said it’s still a work in progress but man it’s come so far! I wish I had before pictures of this room. It was tan, dark, and had horrible 70’s dark trim. We kept the dark doors throughout the entire downstairs and added white trim and I LOVE it. Check back for the updated version when the final pieces are added!
