Baby Talk: Baby Girls Nursery Tour!

We will be meeting our precious baby girl in just days and since our nursery is about 90% done (finally!) I wanted to give you guys the tour :)

We went with a soft grey colour on the walls before we found out if it was a girl or boy because I knew either way I wanted a colour I wouldn't get sick of and that they could grow into and I LOVE Grey! So the dark blue walls of my husbands "guitar/music room" were painted over.

Once we found out it was a girl we decided on the theme of grey, white and bling :) This was the theme on the main day of our wedding at our reception and since baby girl was originally due ON our 1 year anniversary I thought it was only fitting.

I custom ordered her bedding from, her crib came from Sears, the frame is from Ikea but we DIY'd it by painting it white and will hang a blinged out initial once we decide on a name, the diaper cake was a special gift from my BFF who used the hand made flowers I made for her DIY bouquet at our wedding as an added touch and the side table was actually made with love from scratch by my handy husband 8 years ago!

It was originally a dark brown and sitting in his parents basement for a very long time. He brought it home, sanded, painted and added the crystal knobs to make it fit the nursery and it could not be more perfect!

Our glider was a custom order from a local baby boutique and up above it you can see the DIY tulle tutu mobile I made :)

Here's a close up of the mobile made with love!

We actually found the dresser below when we first found out we were expecting on kijiji and I knew I had to have it for the baby's room. We decided that instead of buying a separate a change table we would use this and just add the change pad on top.

We changed out all the knobs to crystal and I added some bling rhinestones to the drawer pulls to add sparkle. The soft minky change pad cover was an Etsy buy and the 3 beautiful cutout mirrors were purchased at Pier 1 Imports.
This corner unit was purchased from the same person we bought the dresser from off kijiji for an amazing combo price. We switched out the knobs once again and it will house all of babies books below. For now Ive added some ultrasound images, wedding pics and a print from our first maternity shoot at 28 weeks.

One of my favourite things in the nursery has got to be this rug. I had originally purchased a grey and white rug online to go in this room but when it arrived it was much darker than I had wanted and it just wasn't working in the room. I happen to be at Home Outfitters one day and noticed a pile of rugs marked half off. I was immediately drawn to the grey shade of this rug and once I saw the pattern I knew it was perfect :)

And here is the DIY tulle tutu door hanger from my last post on baby girls closet door! The bassinet (borrowed from a friend) will be where she will be sleeping for the first little while in our bedroom.

I still want to hang a few more things on the walls such as some DIY artwork I've designed and there are a few other things that need to be added but for now we are so happy with how it turned out.

We are ready and waiting.....
Pin It!

Oh, it's gorgeous! You must be so excited! I love the theme, and I especially love your rug! The photos around the room are a cute touch too.

I can't wait for my turn! :) A couple more years...

The room is really beautiful, but im a little concerned that there won't be enough colour stimulation in terms of mental development. Maybe a colourful mobile would help.

Oh my goodness, amazing!

Very pretty! It's too bad you have to remove the crib liner for safety. I can't wait to see the colourful mobile over the crib that, no doubt, you will DIY.

Gorgeous room Farah <3 Your LO will love it :D We went for much brighter shades of coral and sage as we were told they like a lot of colours and she seems to love her room, she's always looking around and smiling at random things in there.

Btw, hope you have better luck with the bassinet than us. Sofia hated her bassinet so we bought her a co-sleeper for the first 6 weeks and then moved her to her crib.

How did you make the mobile?

Farah on March 10, 2013 at 12:24 PM said...

@Jessica I actually bought a large metal ring at value village and then wrapped it in tulle, strung some crystals and added pearls to hang it. I made the centre ball by glueing felt pieces onto a foam ball.
