Sweet P's Nursery

Well, this has been a long time coming but I finally got around to taking pictures of Paisley's finished nursery. I'm pretty proud of it. I wanted it to be bright and girly, but not baby girly.

So, my mom and I started off at a fabric store and with her help, I found about 4 or 5 coordinating fabrics to use throughout the nursery. I told her the things I had in mind for fabric and brought my sketch book.



I don't sew, but my mom does and with a little latte persuasion,


she agreed to make a crib sheet, dust ruffle, curtains and I somehow managed to get her to recover the cushions on the glider we got!! Yay for mom.

All the framed photos throughout her room were taken by her Aunt Ashley and I LOVE them. The hardest part was deciding which photos to frame because there were so many amazing ones to choose from.

So here's a little tour...

Entering the room.

Sweet P's Nursery - Entrance

Paisley's view from her crib.

A Katie Daisy print!

View looking at the crib. Most of the pom poms came from Paisley's shower, the others I made. The banner with her name was made by my sister and was also from her shower. Then there's the dust ruffle, crib blanket and curtains made by mom. The side table was mine growing up and it used to be white with purple details - I spray painted it to match the room.

The other side of the room.

Detail of the reading area. I love this area!! I spend a lot of time here rocking and reading to my girl.

There's the recovered cushions on the glider and ottoman, the chandelier was a gift from my dad, the print on the wall is my husband holding Paisley in his hands when she was 6 days old and I found the baskets to hang on the wall for my book "shelf."

Close up of the baskets filled with new books for my girl and old ones I read as a child.

The other side of the wall is my DIY wall. I used the leftover fabric for embroidery hoops to hang on the wall. I included the birth announcement I designed on one, an advice note from my sister on another (the note reads: You can't hold her too much, one day she won't want to be held) and the embroidered hoop was my very first Mother's Day gift from For the love of Joy. I also had a couple of small frames laying around so I spray painted those and put a rolled fabric flower in one and one of my favorite newborn pictures of Paisley in another.

The other side of the wall is the changing area with a basket filled with quilts made by her Granny Sandy, Great Grandma and friends.

I love these shelves. They are loaded with fun things for me to look at while I'm changing dirty diapers!

Sweet P's Nursery - Shelves

On one shelf I framed a couple of the maternity pictures my sister did and one of the tattoo pics. Gus, a little stuffed animal sits on a set of books I read as a little girl and Paisley's first pair of Gracious May shoes sit on the end.

The other shelf has a pictures of her sister-cousin, a cork board filled with notes from her shower and her birth announcement

Thanks for checking out my baby girl's nursery! I think this is my favorite room in my house!





Thank you to everyone who had a part in making this room. Especially thank you to the husband for hanging the ceiling fan, painting the room and putting up the crown moulding (with my dad's help)! Also: For the Love of Joy (embroidered hoop and boppy cover, np), Ashley Ann Photography (photos, pom poms, notes, big P, Paisley banner), Dad (chandelier, helping with crown molding), Gracious May (shoes), The Husband (painting, hanging shelves, curtains, chandelier, love), Katie Daisy (ABC print), Mom (crib sheet, dust ruffle, curtains, pillows and glider cusions), Granny Sandy (quilts), Great Grandma (quilt), Silly Me Baby (hair bow, np), Snugars (headband, np), TweetBabyDesigns (flower hair clips, np) and anyone else I'm forgetting.

  16. Love this room. The paint color is no longer in stock at Sherwinn Williams, but I was able to still get a sample at SW. I had it matched in a no-VOC paint at Lowe's, and for what it is worth, it is almost a perfect match to "Lido Green" by Benjamin Moore. I love how it turned out!! Not too dark, just the perfect shade.
