Today is finally the day; it’s the day I get to share Baby Sister’s full Modern and Bright Nursery reveal!
After sharing my inspiration last week, I’ve been working like crazy to finish up as many of the projects that I could before she makes her grand entrance (or if she’s like my other kidlets, she gets evicted). There are still a few more things that I’d like to purchase and create for her space, but those will just have to wait for another day. For now, though, I’m in love with her room. Reagan’s already asked when she gets to have a bright and colorful room like her sister.
I’m also going to give you fair warning: this is a picture heavy post, but it’s totally worth it!
This is the view from her doorway:
The majority of the decor that I created is directly above her crib. I need to give a shout out to Rebecca of Petite Party Studio. She had this crib that she wasn’t going to use anymore and passed it down to me. It was the exact one The Husband and I were getting ready to purchase and we couldn’t be more thrilled! The polka dot sheet can be found at Target.
The decor above the crib is my favorite part of her entire room. It’s got all of the colors and design items that make me –and hopefully Baby Sister– happy. I’ll be sharing tutorials in the next few weeks so you can re-create the cuteness for yourself!
All of the frames for her room are from Cut It Out Already; make sure to check back on Monday for a fun giveaway from them! The print is one that I designed myself using one of my favorite poems and may just be offered as a freebie in an upcoming post. Just sayin’.
And the banner? You know that I had to include my Project Life obsession somewhere in her room! I used the same method that I did when creating my Festive Fall Banner last year. Since the Strawberry Edition Core Kit contained all of the gorgeous colors that I was wanting in her room, it was the perfect match.
Here’s a sneak peek at what Baby Sister’s name will be…well, more like her first initial. I’m not 100% sure why I haven’t shared her actual name yet, but at this point, we’ll just wait until she’s here. The 4×6 filler cards in the Strawberry edition were also the perfect size for framing and added a great pop of graphic print to the room.
I knew that I wanted to create some of my own hoop art as part of this fun nursery and since Reagan won’t stop dancing to the wildly inappropriate Iggy Azalea song, “Fancy,” it seemed like a great place to start.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (you totally should be!), you might have already seen this sweet canvas a time or two. The original design is from The TomKat Studio for Shutterfly and I adored it so much, I tweaked it to coordinate with the style I was going for in the nursery. The best part is that Kim has offered up the free downloadable files so you can easily recreate this in on Shutterfly in black and white in your own home.
Here’s the view of the room from her closet:
This will be one of the most used parts of her room, seeing as if she’s anything like her sister, I’ll be spending oodles of quality time feeding her in that chair. It was one of the first big purchases that we made when we found out we were expecting Luke nearly seven years ago now and its still one of the most comfortable chairs that I’ve ever sat in. Granted, the tan isn’t necessarily my favorite at this point, but its a neutral that isn’t *too* offensive.
With our previous two children, we had the traditional nursery set with a crib, dresser, and changing table. This time, we chose to settle on one larger dresser that could serve her for a longer amount of time. This Hemnes dresser from IKEA fit the budget and the style we were looking for. The drawer closest to the chair holds burp cloths, bibs, extra binkies, and any other extra goodies I’ll need during those previously mentioned late-night feedings.
The kids wanted to make sure that they were able to include a few of their own personal touches throughout their baby sister’s room. Reagan picked out this doll the day we found out we were having a girl and Luke added in a car that had previously been Reagan’s, but would now be passed down to the new baby. I added a few of our favorite books to the mix.
The pillows are on the chair are not only for comfort purposes, but to add another pop of color to her room. The polka dot pillow was actually created through Shutterfly with a design I created myself.
Polka dots + hearts = a whole lotta love for my little girl.
One of the most intensive DIY projects I accomplished for Baby Sister’s room was her mobile. I knew that I didn’t want to hang it over her crib for fear of her pulling down on herself at some later date, so I placed it above her changing area.
This is the view of her room from the opposite side of her room. Eventually, the goal is to add a white frame mirror above the changing pad, but that will have to wait until a later date.
Here’s a peek at what she’ll be coming home from the hospital in. Or at least that’s what I’ve settled on this week. You know how pregnancy hormones work.
The kids’ favorite part of the room is where we hung up pictures that they drew especially for their baby sister. Because I hung it up with washi tape, we can easily change it out should they decide to create a new masterpiece for her.
And in case you were wondering, the top picture was created by Reagan and its a rainbow with her sister underneath. Luke drew the second picture and its of him fishing in the mountains, catching a rainbow fish. Sweet, right?
I’m just so incredibly happy with how everything turned out…and that it is completed before she arrives.
Like I said earlier, I’ll be popping back in for the next few weeks with tutorials for the DIY projects I completed, downloads for free prints, and a giveaway for a credit to purchase your own frames. I’d hate for you to miss out!
