Nursery Reveal

Back in February and March, we turned the smallest bedroom into the sweetest nursery. We may have been cutting it a bit close since our wee one arrived in mid-April (and a week late at that!). Before she arrived, though, I managed to find time to snap a few photos – good thing, since we’ve definitely mastered that cozy “lived-in” look (stacks of diapers in varying sizes, packs of wipes, a pacifier or two always within an arm’s reach, a cup of coffee (usually cold) sitting on the windowsill next to the glider).

It’s a little room with an even tinier closet. We went with a neutral color scheme and plenty of added storage in two antique chests of drawers. An area rug from HomeGoods is the perfect place to play with Baby on her mat, and books and toys are kept tidy in various baskets and wooden crates. More details below.

Nursery rocking chair and antique art deco dresser
My favorite corner. The glider from when I was a baby, updated with a coat of mineral paint and new (washable!) slipcovers on the cushions. The dresser is an antique art deco dresser that was updated with new paint (notice the glove box with mirror built into the top). The floor lamp is an Ikea find, and the stained glass lamp is a gift from my aunt (she made the lampshade herself).

Nursery toy basket
A neutral woven basket from HomeGoods is filled with a few toys. The bull was a gift from a dear friend’s mom and is made out of an antique quilt, and the koala is from a friend living abroad in Australia.
Nursery crib and changing table
The mirror with the hooks is another antique store find. It was originally a door that was converted to a mirror with an antique mirror and cast iron hooks. I love the chippy white paint. We use an antique pine chest of drawers as a changing table. The trash can is from my childhood (slightly bent from where it was sat on once or twice). The crib is an iron crib, and the rug is an ultra soft find from HomeGoods.
Nursery hanging basket
A hanging market basket with my baby quilt and bear brings some added color and texture to the neutral wall (painted in Benjamin Moore Lancaster Whitewash).
