Hi everyone! My name is Kelley and I blog at Forever’s Like a Dream. My whole world came into perspective when I became a mom and I started this blog as a way to connect with other mom’s and share my adventures and blessings in mommyhood.
I am so excited to be a part of Simply Baby Furniture’s Blog Party learning all about some other fab blogger’s and their nurseries! This week, I’m excited (although a bit embarrassed) to show you Miss Lavery’s nursery. I’ll confess, it’s a total mess! We moved into our new house right before Christmas and since Lavery is turning 2 in July, we are in the process of transitioning her from her baby nursery to her big girl room.
So without further ado.. meet Lavery’s humble abode!
Let me first start by saying, I did not choose this color. The walls in her room were painted this already in our new house and we decided to keep it while we decide what to go with for her big girl room. Her old nursery walls were a pale pink and the bedding and decor matched with a light pink and white toile. Her nursery right now is completely “mixy matchy” in every way!
I love the large white letters hanging on her wall and I wanted a more “clean” look as opposed to the hanging letter with ribbon we see a lot of. Even though we can convert her white sleigh style crib, we are planning to move her up to a big girl bed sometime in the next few months instead of keeping this. Her windows are also “curtain-less” right now since we are in transition too.
I knew I was having a girl and had my hear set on white furniture. I found a great Bassett Furniture sleigh style crib I fell in love with so went with this then added the rest of the pieces from there.
Her changing table was a DIY project. I found a wooden changing table at a yard sale when I was pregnant for cheap. I repainted it to match the white decor in her room then took a black and white damask fabric to lay down on the shelves to pair with baskets and use as storage. Right now, it still stays that way until we make the switch. I did the same with an end table used next to the glider/ottoman that has since been taken out of her room.
I’m still using the pink toile decor from her baby nursery right now. I still love it (even though I’m not so sold on that with the green walls.) I do love pink and green together and think I will keep those colors when redecorating, but maybe add in some chevron since I’m so into it right now and I think it will give her room some “big girl flair!” What do you think?
The two favorite parts of her room right now and I hope to keep incorporated into her room when it’s completed are these pieces of art work. Her name was designed by my friend, Sarah Masci : A Drop of Golden Sun when I was pregnant and I still love it! I think the colors still go well with the green walls and while it hung on her door in her old nursery, it’s hanging on the wall in her room now.
She also has this Cinderella quote I bought over Christmas at Blacklion in Charlotte hanging up that I absolutely love and sticks with the whole pink and green theme I’m thinking we’ll run with.
All in all, right now her nursery is nothing short of a mis-matched mess, BUT I think I’ll be able to work with a lot of what we’ve already got and incorporate into her new, big girl paradise – coming soon!
