The Nursery Reveal

Well, it's finally here. My little lady's nursery reveal!

I've been about 95% done with this new favorite space of mine since mid-July but it's taken me until two days before her due date to finally post it. Yikes. We can easily say that decorating is just about my favorite thing to do, ever, but photographing my interiors and editing the pictures once I'm done? Oh heck no.

But I finally got my nonsense together and did it, so let's take a look!

If you remember my nursery inspiration board, you'll notice that just about everything in it made it's way into the actual nursery. I did print out that bunny photo but I ended up going with the swan since I needed something horizontal for her dresser space.

I also obviously don't have her name written out in the metal letters anywhere since, well, she doesn't have one yet. Cue the horror. But that's a road we won't go down because it causes me too much anxiety. Like I said, she'll have on when she's seven...

I didn't really have a theme for her room other than "neutral with touches of blush, sprinkled with a few whimsical animals". Everything in there is either white, gray, beige, or blush and there are unicorns, swans, and bunnies. It's girly without being "holy shit, you're having a little princess, let's throw sparkles and bright pink on every inch of her room and wardrobe". I'm very anti-all of that craziness.

It was also a really inexpensive makeover, which was one of my main priorities. I knew I'd get carried away if I let myself and, let's face it, the chick won't even remember her nursery so I wanted to keep things reasonable.

My dad got a great deal on the crib for me. I already had the chair, which no longer fit in the living room after we got new couches, so I just moved it into the nursery. I've never been much of a rocker with any of my nanny babies so I'm not too worried about not having a glider in there. Plus, the room is TINY so there's honestly not much space for one anyway. Her dresser and side table are both from the HEMNES collection fro IKEA, so hi, cheap. The rug is from Home Decorator's Collection which always has great sales going on and it's an amazing deal to begin with. And all of the decor items were from places like Target, TJMaxx, or Etsy, so I kept things pretty reasonable.

Here are all of the links to everything in the room. If I missed something that you'd like some info on, please let me know! There are a few things that are obviously no longer available since it's been so long since I've decorated. Whoops!
