Baby P's "It's a Small World" Nursery

Monday, January 27, 2014

While the nursery isn't 100% completed, I just couldn't wait any longer to share!  It's mostly done, just a few small decorating things left to do, which I'll share when we get around to them (hopefully soon!)

For now, I'll let the photos do most of the talking, with a source list at the bottom of the post.

Welcome to Baby P's It's a Small World Nursery!

(granted, one of the things I have left to do will really drive the Small World theme home, but it's definitely a post of its own, so I'll share that when I get it finished)

I love those little sequined boots so much that they make several appearances.  They're so adorable I can hardly stand it!

I know I like to see inside people's drawers (the furniture kind, not the underwear kind - get your mind out of the gutter!), so here's a little peek at what's in Baby P's.

Onesie sleepers, diapers/wipes, toiletry items, and hair bows in the top drawer.

Burp cloths, more diapers, and her newborn and 0-3 month casual clothes in the middle drawer (nicer outfits are hanging in her closet).

Blankets and diaper genie refills in the bottom drawer.

Does anyone else have a terrible time finding curtains?  They're usually too short or way too long, and mostly boring and very grown-up... not too fun for a kid's room.  I knew very early on that I'd have to make them to get exactly what I want, so I found this fabric (Robert Kaufman "Felicity") and took a few hours to sew big rectangles.  That's all curtains are - there's really not an easier beginning sewing project!  I also knew that these would need to be lined to block out the sunlight that comes blaring in this room in the morning, so I picked up some white flannel at Hobby Lobby and sewed two more rectangles.  I didn't even have to worry about a rod pocket because there's this awesome invention called the clip ring!  I just clipped the lining fabric and the pretty fabric together (they're not even attached - talk about easy!), and hung them up.  I'm pretty much in love.

A peek at her wardrobe.  This kid should be well-dressed!

Steven's favorite thing in the whole nursery - the 4moms Mamaroo!  I have to say, it is pretty awesome.

Tutorial on the crib skirt to come!

Canopy = Outside of an embroidery hoop + tulle curtains + fishing line + eye hook.  Easy peasy.

So that's it!  Our little girl's nursery.  I'll do a separate post with some befores and little projects we did along the way.  Now if she would get here already!

  1. I just noticed that I forgot to list the paint color - whoops! It's in the source list now, but for your reference, it's Pittsburgh Paints "Aqua Chiffon". It photographs REALLY bright. It's not quite that bright in person, but it is a nice, saturated turquoise color. Hope this helps!

  2. I love that light fixture so much! Super cute room!

  3. Oh! This is so lovely! I've worked as a nanny and seen many nurseries. This one is a gem! I'm now following so I won't miss out on the finished product. :-)

  4. Beautiful colors, my two favorite color combinations for a girls room! Beautiful job, what a happy room. Kari

  5. It's beautiful! Love the changing table area and, of course, those sweet little dolls. And those silver boots rock! Can Little Lady June borrow them? : )
