Well … we are officially ready for our little bean to arrive, and we can’t wait to meet her!! I thought it might be nice to give you all a little tour of the completed nursery … it took many weeks to get it to this point, but I’m very happy with how it turned out!! Thank you Pinterest for all of your awesome ideas and inspiration!!
Custom booties made by Grandma to match her room, and a special jewelry box from Great Grandpa complete with family heirlooms … this little girl is loved so much already! And of course, what girl’s wardrobe is complete without a pair of Toms?
Canvases from the dollar store wrapped in coordinating fabrics with wooden letters from Michaels nailed on … thanks Pinterest!
Beautiful black sleigh crib from Sears … a generous gift from the Grandmas.
Her stuffed animal collection is underway already … complete with a Sleep Sheep (I’ve heard awesome things about those sheep). The mobile came with her bedding set, though I did “soup” it up quite a bit. All of the hearts and jewels were added by hand …
Aylah means “oak tree” … so we thought it would be fitting to include an oak tree in her decor. The decal was purchased from Etsy, and the fabric leaves that match the rest of the room were hand cut by Grandma … thanks so much for all of your help making my vision a reality Mom!!
I think she may actually have more clothes and shoes than me at this point … and that’s saying something, lol. The size organizers also came from Etsy … brilliant idea!!
Wooden door hangers from the dollar store painted with chalkboard paint and hung with ribbon. Her toys can be organized, and the labels can change as she grows.
This is another pinterest gem that my hubby made into a reality. Those bookshelves are vinyl house gutters … yes, you heard me, gutters. We bought one large gutter and 6 end caps, cut it to the right lengths, drilled mounting holes, and attached them to the wall. This was a perfect book solution for us since the room is quite small and I didn’t want to loose any floor space with a traditional book shelf.
And her book collection is filled with all of the awesome classics that I grew up with … Dr. Suess, Robert Munsch … can’t wait for story time!!
