{Her Room}

I have been excited about creating this nursery since the minute Justin said he was ready for a baby. Which means I had a nursery pictured in our old house.
When we still had no baby on the way and decided to move I had a hard time picturing a nursery in our new home because I just didn't want to get my hopes up.
But the minute that all changed I had a private pinterest board filled with nursery ideas and a note book with lists of must haves!

So when we found out this baby was a girl it was go time! Justin and I both really wanted her room to be girly which was very easy for me and I was shocked to hear Justin actually say things like "it's not really girly enough" or for him to have opinions on shades of pink and chandeliers - but I LOVED it. This nursery has really been a joint venture and it's just what I imagined! It was a dream come true putting it all together for her.

I have to say I think it's much prettier in person - it's a small room so hard to photograph and I don't think the color is spot on but without further ado - here is Miss Black nursery.

Old barn window frame: Pier 1
DIY Pink frame: Thrift store and I painted it pink
Gallery wall
{shelves: ikea, farm window: mom found at the thrift store for me, vinyl of the first letter of her name is covered by the pink post-it on the mirror: Kreative Corner Design}
Justin did an awesome job on the paint and the stripes! LOVE that wall.
 Chandelier: Ikea
 DIY mobile made by me. {Post to come on all DIY projects}
Door print was custom made for us c/o Little Laws Prints.
{Shhhh...let her sleep for when she wakes she will move mountains}
Hooded blanket from Auntie Jolie.
Curtain: Target (I hemmed it from almost floor length)
Butterflies were purple from $rama so I painted them pink and glittered them!
Butterfly curtain rod: Target
Clothes pegs to hang up blankets or sleep sacs: Target $ bin 
{Idea is Whitney's she has the same thing in East's room and I love that he uses them himself now!}
Toy bin: Superstore
 Lamp: Home Sense
Dresser: DIY by Justin - IN LOVE with this piece he did.
Changing pad cover: Etsy - not happy with the color - it is much more taupe then grey. Lesson learned - read the feedback on etsy shops. Oh well.
{most likely will be used more on the floor then the dresser}
 Book shlelves: Ikea spice Racks
Basket: Home sense that I decorated
 DIY doily alphabet & READ letters
 Cutest little housecoat ever: Auntie Jolie {Joe Fresh}
Custom "You are Beautiful" vinyl: Kreative Corner Design
 Photo frame with clothes pegs: Pier 1
Butterfly shadow box: DIY
 Lab pillow: c/o Nest 2 Impress
Rocking chair: Kijiji and then Justin distressed it and my MIL Debbie recovered the pillow.
{I saw this months ago and decided it was something we would buy for little miss because whenever I see giraffes I think of Justin's Gramma - every time I saw her she would tell me how much she loved giraffes and tell me a story about the zoo so we picked this up last week (it plays 4 soothing sounds)}
Joe Fresh Rattle Teddy
Crib sheet: Babies R Us
 DIY table
 Sweet big sister!
DIY Crib skirt: I made from one of the same curtain panels as her curtain
 Her closet! Girl already has more clothes than her mama! Impressive.
Every little girl needs a perfect pull up on her door! :)
There we have it. I just hope she loves it as much as we do.
A huge thank you to Justin for working so hard on this for me - I had many 'visions' and he was the one to execute them. And nothing was easy. He had to totally rewire the electrical for the chandelier to make it roof height, the paint job for the rocker and dresser was many steps and time consuming, the stripe was was done to perfection - and the list goes on and on. So thank you. I love you.
